Not overrated, a very good pilsener, and cheap, it's my favorite pilsener !

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.

Not bad considering. Seems that about half the bottles I've had have been really skunky.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Very light blonde with a small white head. Bread nose. Herbal taste with a watery texture, very easy to drink and clean. More hops would be enjoyable, but it's a decent mass-producted brew.

Had one of these on tap at Riva (on the Wharf) while visiting Santa Cruz last Sunday. This brew pours light sparkling golden. The tight white creamy head is rocky with decent lacing and lasts to the bottom. The nose is straight pils - a touch of grass and grains. Keep in mind though I was on a wharf, where the smell of fish and cooked seafood predominates. The taste is cereal and bready grain, balanced but shallow. The palate was perfect for the day - light, creamy and soft, the finish feels clean.

7/19/03: bottle. uh! god!! fresh skunk stench as soon as you pop the cap on this one.. i wonder if they farm skunks to create this odor? pale yellow body. not too good, i just can’t get over the smell. (just a suggestion... maybe they should rename this beer Stenchae Aromas).

A light straw colored with a wispy and quickly diminshing white head. Lacing.
Smells 100% skunked.
Watery, skunked flavor. The hops try to come through but they are quickly overcome by the skunk.
Typical smooth lager mouthfeel.
