2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle, brewed somewhere in Russia. Pours gold with a surprisingly dense white head that lasts for a very long time. Lots of lacing clings to the glass. Has the instantly recognisable Stella aroma of herbiness and yeast. I remember the UK and Belgian brewed versions tasting better.

Blah, only a hair better than coors light, wheat grain water, with real bad orange peel after taste. Only good thing is crystal clarity.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft: Came pale yellow (straw) colored with white lasting foam. Nice lacing as the glass was emptied. Aroma: mild herbal, floral. Taste: smooth grainy, malty with slight toasty notes giving way to a back end bitterness giving a dry, clean finish. Medium-light on the palate. Enjoyable though not remarkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a corn and citrus flavor, this is one of the few green bottled Euros that doesn’t have that skunky aroma.
Appearance- Has a fairly bright straw yellow color with a thick white head.
Taste- The taste is a nice combo of citrus, corn and spices.
Palate- A light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Has a semi dry finish.
Overall- One of my favorite Euro Pale Lagers, this is getting quite a bit of notice in the States lately. I prefer this over Heineken by a country mile.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
A boring lager sold as if it were one of the great Belgian beers. It isn’t, unless you interpret "great" as "owned by the biggest brewer in the world". I lived in Leuven for years, but never liked this. It doesn’t even look nice.

Bottle. Drank right out of the bottle. Not much aroma. Not much taste. Astringent on the palate. Mass-produced & marketed lager. Nothing to see here....move on.

Classical clear yellow, white top. Massive lager production plus just a little bit of quality.

Meh. It’s alright if there’s nothing else to drink - It’s like the Coors of Europe. Half the time it has a buttery nasty kind of taste to it :(
