An Excellent crisp beer taste. Refreshing with a perfect amount of aftertaste. It has all of the flavor that domestic light beers can only hint at because they are light beers. It’s one of the best I’ve had in this style.

Oginme (54) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2015
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.

ordybill (327) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
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.

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.

willisread (200) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2015
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.

A bright yellow lager with high head. Aroma is fresh, malty, very yeasty. Taste is sweet and light bitter. Pearly.

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 :(

From tap@airport bar in Oslo. Head with rather large bubbles disappeared rather fast and it had a somewhat limited aroma. Slightly over carbonated too, but there is a special Stella "twang" ,especially prevalent in the aftertaste, I like - not too hoppy, not too malty but with a nice bitterness that makes it stand out among its peers. Memory is an unpredictable thing, but I do believe I remember it as being better, with an even more distinct taste in Belgium, where I hope my glass was actually brewed?

Near the top of quality for a beer of this class. Not much, anyway. A bunch of skillful tricks, when they are possible. Nice yellow, absent head. Good yeast, I guess, a lot of water and the minima possible of malt and hops. A slightly astringet finish and nothing else. Impossible not mention the ridiculous advertising of this "belgian" beer.
