UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 I didn't approve of this beer before but due to my retrained beer palate, I think this beer is quite good. Nice clean maltiness, very bright, good clarity. Good!

Light clear color. Bitter taste, and pretty much a standard tasting large pilsner. Some wheat-type flavors come through.

A beautifull color and wonderfull presentation on tap at the O’Carrolls downtown Halifax they know how to serve beer at this establishment . But this beer was not the beer of choice in Belgium .A bit of hops and skunky sour smell .Not a try again .

hmmm... I don’t know but I was very dissapointed by this one. Very watery taste to it. Not much better than any of the Budmillercoors types. Totally overated in my opinion! Stay away!

I was disapointed,I expected more from it,you can just taste that classic saaz hop under the slighty skunky smell.Fine in the mouth,alittle hard on the nose.

This isn’t a bad pilsener. Drink while it is fairly fresh though.

Middle-of-the-Road brew, which is where you’ll find yourself yacking if you drink too much of it. Slight sour aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 9-09-12 Re-Rate: Rating for the 2nd time, almost 10 years hence. Bottle. Smell is not offensive. Crystal clear yellow body with thin white head and sparse lace. Virtually no flavor. Has flavor approximating that of a light beer. No Belgian qualities. Rating went up slightly from a decade ago due to aroma. However, still has no redeeming value since the calories and ABV are too high for a beer this flavorless. 12-01-02: First heard of this beer over a year ago during a trip to Toronto. If I had it then, it was not memorable, as it was during this tasting. (BBC-Menlo Park) Moderately malty in aroma. Non-existent head. Good clear, amber color. Better flavor than I remember. Sweet, with some bitterness. Outside of the color, the lack of head, lace and sparkle makes Stella an unattractive beer. Without much to redeem itself in the taste, this ends up a below average brew. 2, 2, 5, 3, 7
