UPDATED: FEB 10, 2003 Not exceptional except that it is a mass-produced beer. I would be very happy if the avearge big brewer's beer tasted this good. A lovely choice for a few on the patio.

Probably the safest lager to drink off tap in the UK. Considering the alternatives.

Just what a pilsener should be. Light, slightly hoppy but balanced. Light golden in color, fluffy white head and good lace on the glass. Aroma is a lot sweeter then other European pilseners that I have had. Not bad overall.

Iím sure the original stella(if there was one) tasted exactly like this. they must have had boring lagers in the 1300ís.

good color and a nice head, light hop aroma, not all that good.

I realize this beer isnít considered to be any great shakes in Belgium, and that itís marketed in the US as a "premium" beer when itís perhaps not, BUT I thought it was quite pleasant and drinkable. Very smooth, and not overly fizzy like an american standard. Not bitter at all. Nice.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Crystal clear bright yellow. Nice light malt flavor, but thereís almost a cucumber aftertaste? Easy to drink and inoffensive European lager.

Not bad. You can get better pilsners for cheaper, though. Due to the cost, I probably wouldnít end up drinking these all night, but if they were free, I would strongly consider it.

On tap at Brussells airport. Well I decided to try it one more time before I left Belgium especially when someone recommended trying it on tap. Visually its the same pale gold clear but this time under a large medium lasting white head and faint lacing. Served too cold to discern anything other than s faint hop straw aroma. Same old thinnish watery body and faint bitter palate. From what I can see thereís no real difference between on tap and bottle versions of this beer.
First rating 6/17/2002 2.1 Bright gold clear colour with almost zero head. Faint malty corn syrup and hops aroma. Thin watery body and light bitter hops flavours. Faint bitter hops and soft sweet finish and wimpy aftertaste. Fortunately I only have to drink this once (for rating purposes only) while living in beer heaven - so for now itís back to the strong Belgians.

Rubbery, hoppy, adjuncty aroma. Almost no head, pale amber beer. Med.-light carb and body. Crisp with a bitter alcohol taste. Not very impressive for a Belgian beer.
