4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
If you look at my profile you will notice that i am a lager drinker. The cheap stuff, simple all american stuff. I have to say though, that this is probably the best import i've ever had. Most imports seem to try to hard for me. Too much flavor, too much color, too much aroma. Stella is nice and gentle, just the way i like it.

For a mass produced beer, overall pretty good. Nice golden colour. Crisp and smooth taste, nothing too exciting. Not my favourite, but priced well to have in my fridge.

Lots of head and definately a nice golden colour. Kind of bitter but not offensive.

A DECENT BEER THAT IS VERY DRINKABLE. IF YOU EXPECT A GREAT BEER YOU WILL BE DISSAPOINTED. I WOULD DRINK IT AGAIN.

Lager is now the most popular pub drink in the UK, and Stella is the best selling lager. Brits are very image conscious, and brewers have had a hard time keeping up with the current trends, but Europe is back in favour and Stella has been promoted hard in one of the most expensive, long-running and artistic advertising campaigns in recent years - pushing the acclaimed Guinness adverts into the background. Stella is seen as cultured, historic and very intelligent - the ads promote the idea that Stella drinkers are sophisticated and clever by using easily understood stories in French, and then complete the kick with the pay off line: Reassuringly Expensive. Mmmm, I may shave my head, support Millwall, live in a boarded-up council flat and beat up my crack-addict woman, but I drink Stella, therefore I exist in a fantasy world in which people think I matter. The British nickname for Stella is "Wife-beater" - at around 5% this is stronger than most Millwall supporters are used to (most British lagers being around 4% or less), so the yobs and thugs would get drunk and then go home and hit their partners.
Having said all that, this is a fizzy but inoffensive drink of little character.
The UK stuff is brewed in Wales rather than Belgium. In the same brewery as the "Irish" beer - Murphy’s. This must be the Global Village we keep hearing about.

highly carbonated, yellow color. Light body and mouthfeel and noticible sourness.

Had it on tap, poors a golden color with a thick head. Very smooth in taste lacking bitterness. Not a very complex taste, but good and refreshing on a hot day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale straw coloured beer, very clear. Head dissipated rapidly. Very low malt and hop aroma - saaz, not particularly pleasant.
Medium bitterness dry, low carbonation not fitting with style - perhaps due to intial big pour to attain head.
Sweetness coming through after a third mouthful, good balance, morish.
Slight tingling on the tip of the tongue, possibly some phenolic fault - possibly from grain.
After warming a light hop aroma comes through of blueberries.

Fairly good. Nice hoppy finnish, really refreshing. Light bodied, suited for long drinking sessions.
