Good God! I canít believe I hadnít reviewed Stella Yet. Inundated with this beer everywhere you go. So called premium... but itís a skunky steely sharp and bubbly concoction. Must be an acquired taste.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2009 Bottled. Another mass produced lager. This one is malty but also sweet and really quite nasty. Favourite of those Englanders who like getting drunk quick - say no more!Score 1.1
Subsequent rating scored 2.5. Average becomes 1.8

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at P. F. Changs. Served in a nice looking Stella Artois glass. Pale golden/yellow color. The nose was weak but it could be due to the fact itís been heavily chilled. I believe I made out some hops and citrus in the aroma. Light bodied, heavily carbonated and quite mild on the flavors. Simple and unimpressive. This oneís only a notch above bud and friends.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light gold, with a small head which fades quickly to a thin covering. Aroma dominated by a steely hop, without any nice malt to go with it. Flavour much the same, lacking in malt, but without enough in your face hops to make it stand out from its ilk.
Nice enough, better than megaswill, but not great.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 Good, clean lager...I wish it would come to Michigan! A lot better after taste than Urquell without the funky smell of Heineken.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The apperance is a pale yellow color with a moderate white head. The aroma is hay and lemons. The flavor is pretty tame with some malt accents showing through. Not a bad beer for mowing the lawn but it offers very little complexity. A good simple lager that does offend nor impress.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a classic golden/yellow color. Has a sweet grainy aroma. Has a normal lager taste to it. Canít really tell it apart from most brew of this style. Maybe a little more flavor than some. Also not offensive at all. Certainly drinkable, but it is really expensive for what you get.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow hue, with a very subtle malt and fruit aroma. Smooth and light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Almost no hop presence with a finish that disappears rather ingloriously. A pretty good session beer though. If I could get this for $2 a pint I would drink it more often, but itís always overpriced for what you are getting.
