3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The imported version of this is absolutely miles different from the product brewed on licence. The imported Stella would score about a 4 but the local version tastes watered down and lacks the hoppy aroma that distinguishes great pilsners like Urquell and others. When in NZ I avoid any beer brewed on licence...

I first tried this beer about 3 years ago when I was relatively young and uneducated (well I still am but anyhoo) and thought it tasted like a pilsener and thought it was bloody terrible... Now though, I taste the distinct difference to a pilsener and am quite enjoying it. A brilliant head formed at first but soon disappeared. The taste seems somewhat bitter; something I like in a beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap. Extremely light amber color. Small head. Aroma of hoppy water. Has a mild taste that does not leave any impressions and finishes clean with not taste. An ok beer if you want to get drunk..... i guess.....

3.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The nose is the weakest part of this beer. But I like the bread & yeast taste of this lager. Not hoppy... and as most shudder... I like that.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very skunky beer. Very popular for some reason. Strong hoppy tasting, with a very unpleasant aftertaste.

I fell in love with this beer in Europe and was please to see it become popular in the U.S.. It is a no-nonsense beer that has very good taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear yellow gold with a full head and lacing. Aromas include grassy wheat, bread. Has a crisp, clean start with a nutty, wheat cracker taste and just a touch of balancing hops. Decent drinker from a massive brewer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
My favorite swill. Pretty neutral aroma and, for that matter, flavor.. but it goes down smooth with no fuss. Not nearly as skunky as most also-ran American lagers.

a very easy drinkable pilsner.
A bit sharp but less then jupiler.
