Fairly ordinary flavoured beer, not much going for it in the taste department, easy to drink plenty of them but why waste your time?

A nice whote head on the inviting golden brew. A zippy hoppy aroma that really moves out of the glass. Surprised to discover this kind of round full flavor in a lager, bittering slighly at the end like a quaff o milk though not by flavor, more like a feeling. It doesn't spikebut rounds out, sounds a bit too fancy but I am intrigued.

bierkoning (10538) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2003
Can bought at Brussels Midi Railway Station. No aroma detected. Malty orange flavor with some hopbitterness coming up aftert a while. Bland but not too bad for a international type lager. Or was it because I was thirsty and it was 35 Degrees Celcius?

not a bad pils, overall solid with nothing special standing out. overpriced when compared to similar brands. especilly when sold in 11.2 oz bottles

Medium-gold, with a fairly reliable head. Powerful aromas of vinyl and skunk are the inimitable calling card of this Belgian lager, plus an undercurrent of cereal and sweetness. Skunk and a generous hop bitterness immediately appear on the medium-weight palate, with a thin, watery finish that fades away to wood. Very refreshing and rewarding, this beer is the best mass-produced lager in the world, and its surge in popularity means there’s still hope for this increasingly homogenous planet.

Hugely overrated beer but decent nonetheless. I can easily throw down three or four but any more and I reckon I'd quickly become sick of it. Don;t mind it on tap though.

Stella is really inconsistent. For some reason, sometimes it's really good, and sometimes, you get skunky bottles. Nonetheless, if you're in England and you want to get drunk cheap, getting 6 500 mL cans of 5.2% alcoholic beer that tastes a little better than average for £5 is a great deal.

Not great, but drinkable. Couldn't complain about it, but it did cost me a little more than some others that I'd rather drink.
