Pours a clear light piss yellow with a big white head. Aroma has some malt with sharp bitterness. Flavor has a skunky funky bitterness and metallic aftertaste. Thin body. OK, not great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear pale yellow, white head with good retention. Aroma is sweet malt, corn, slight overcooked vegetables, dough.
Taste is medium sweet with bread, oat, lightly bitter, slight metallic hint. Soft mouthfeel, light body, light carbo. All in all not a disaster, but the flavours are too modest.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Insipidly pale with very little aroma, and what there is is of damp cardboard with a hint of straw. Sweet and thin with a little bit of hop but quite an unpleasant aftertaste. I expected it to be more inoffensive (long time since I last had any) but it’s almost unpleasant. Got to be better mass market lagers than this.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of more or less nothing, appearance a golden clear hue. Nice soapy white head, typical malty lager taste but bitter hoppy aftertaste that I always found unique to Stella and unlike anything else. Refreshing beer that was my first love! I refer to the 5.2% Euro version rather than the current 4.8% stuff in UK now, which weirdly tastes stronger and a bit doctored. 5.2% Stella is a very decent beer despite the reputation of this brand in the UK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lager bionda e banalotta, ma discretamente piacevole. Di gusto delicato, non eccessivamente amaro nè appiccicoso, può dissetare in una giornata soleggiata.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Two 11.2 oz bottles at a friend’s house. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of corn and wheat. Tastes of corn, wheat, malt, a little herb. Light body with a dry finish. Not something I’d drink by itself but was fine with a homemade Korean dinner and Cards Against Humanity.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is a little skunky, but other than that the taste was fairly good. a little hops, slightly bittersweet, easy to drink.

On tap. Pours pale yellow with tall light head. Aroma is hoppy, vegetal and lemony. Flavor is herbal, quite bitter, too sour, citrus, hops, very light malt. Body is medium-light. I just don’t like this style of beers...
