From the bottle pours a pale golden brew with a thin white head. Subtle, well balanced
aromas and taste of malt and hops.

Bottle. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this. Golden with a thin white head. Smells a little rubbery plus grain. Thin flavor a little watery.

My favourite pils beer! Drink this one all the time.
The only thing that’s allways in my fridge.
Good when you’re thirsty, easy drinkable and so smooth!

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Brilliant straw color. Rich thick extra foamy 2 finger white head, lasting 2 - 3 minutes and sticking on the glass in a unique way.
Faint aromas and flavors of citrus, corn, slightly skunky with some floral spices. Very faint taste but well balanced in sweetness and bitterness with a little sugary feel.
Light slick body with faint carbonation but a prickly finish. Short and faint finish on the bitter side.
Overall : Too delicate, missing some freshness and lots of flavors, I find this beer a little off. In comparison, the Heineken is better in my opinion.

Tried it several times because I’m somehow attracted to the artwork, but was always a bit disappointed. This is just too flat in taste, even for a Pale Lager.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear straw color. Medium carbonation. smells of grainy, light toast. Has a strong aroma, but not a nice one. Pretty dry..touch of sweetness in the end. Balanced bitterness. Goes down smooth, nothing offensive about it, but there is nothing to really like about it either.

Stella is a great beer - well a great lager. But it is so hit or miss. Green bottle is fraught with danger; as is the place of manufacture. The taste can range from a 5 to a 15 depending upon how fresh it is and it’s storage. Don’t write it off until you have had it on tap by the manufacturers. But only buy if a) it comes from Leuven Belgium (not the UK, Australia or other destinations) and b) it has been stored in a dark place with the box having never been opened.
Appearance is a five - when it is right - beautiful colour, thick two finger white head that holds and delivers lacing if in the right shaped glass. Shame the rest doesn’t hold up to the promise or deliver consistency.

Pours golden color with a white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavors are the same but kinda flat. Maybe compares to a fancy Bud. Nothing special.
