1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 ml can. Clear pale blonde color, medium fugaceous head. Slightly fruity and malty aroma. Weak flavor of fruits and malt. Very weak bitter finish. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, watery texture. Cheap and boring.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2005 I thought the bottle I has was skuny. It was a nice lighter color, I did enjoy that, but the taste left something to be desired. The taste was skuny and it was a llingering skunk. Not a fan at all, and in England it is like Bud or Miller, absolutly everywhere.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ the Northstar in Philly. Finally decided to try it after listening to all the hype. Poured the classic straw-yellow color with an average snow white head. Not much of an aroma to speak of here, just a slight tinge of malt. Easy on the palate at one degree above freezing, but let this beast warm up and you’re dealing with some pretty harsh metallic/pizza-doughy flavors as well as an unpleasant lingering aftertaste. I can think of several other beers that I’d rather spend 30 bucks on for a case.

Good God! I can’t believe I hadn’t reviewed Stella Yet. Inundated with this beer everywhere you go. So called premium... but it’s 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 it’s 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 one’s 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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
