On tap. Pale golden color with a decent off white head. Strange aroma that I honestly couldn’t pinpoint. Flavor of wet straw, with a mild hop bitterness. I think Belgium should stick with ales and let Germany handle the lagers. They do it much better.

mediocre OK interbrew that’s not metallic tasting. Had a pint on the patio at end of a hot afternoon and could cope. Malt lager that is pale and on bitter side.

Nice smooth macro import. No indication of subsurface taste like malt or citrus.

Well you certainly can’t fault the appearance. Can leave a lingering after taste that’s unpleasant though

Very pale yellow, extremely light-yellow head, good density & leaving some lace. Duff nose, chaff-like, a bit meaty. Hayish, grassy taste, slight acidity a bit lemony in flavour. There’s a note of adstringency in the MF, corresponding to a solvent flavour in the taste. Watery texture, and as said, adstringency. Well, bland and rough at the same time, as expected. To add insult to injury, this came out of a plastic bottle!

A decent choice on a hot day. On tap on an outdoor patio. Not a bad aroma, at least it had one, sort of grassy I suppose. Taste was pretty watery and crisp, but refreshing enough. Slight bitterness at the end. Oh yeah, it had a huge white head. Not bad for a macro really, especially on a warm day, and will always be a decent alternative at places with macro like tap lists.

Well Stella Artios Premium Lager Beer. Definately delicious!! Clean crisp taste to it. I’m more of a simple lager drinker than anything else. Pretty refreshing and goes down smooth. Nice light aromatic aroma. Not too much not to little in everything. Just right. Although it seems to have a dry aftertaste in the finish, which makes me thirsty? Thus, I need to chug more Stella!! I like to drink it when I wanna feel a little different.

On tap. Poured a clear golden color with virtually no head. Smelled a little bit like Heineken, but flavor wasn’t as skunky. A fairly crisp beer, though Belgium can do way better.

Pours a golden blond with a moderate white head. Aroma is a bit skunky and hoppy a la Heinenken or Becks. Honestly I think all three of these are brewed from the same batch and bottled differently. At any rate, taste is mildy grassy and crisp with some malt notes. A bit thinner than expected. But what can you really expect from a Belgian macro? Sort of refreshing and thirst quenching on this hot-ass night. The mouthfeel is a bit overcarbonated while still retaining some whispiness to it. The finish was a bit crisp while having some wateriness to it. Not a bad beer but still too much a macro to really enjoy.
