2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This has been fiercely slagged by a lot of reviewers, and not just on RB. One woman I met referred to it as "The European Budweiser." I have had Stella before, but to rate it I got a pint from the tap in a local bar (for $4.00--ouch). It came with a thin head that sank fairly fast. The body was a very clear gold. Aroma wasnít bad, but there was little of it--quite neutral, I thought. The flavor was in keeping with the aroma: well balanced, I suppose, but nothing distinctive about it. Palate was medium-thin. I didnít notice any nastiness in the tail. The kick was sneaky and more powerful than I expected, but that could have been the effect of the Duvel I drank just before I had this. Not bad, really, but not good in any very memorable way. Iíd rate it about even with Heineken. It doesnít deserve the "European Budweiser" tag and it would make a good session beer, but I would really rather have a Ballantine instead.

Draft. Light amber with small, bubbly brief head. Aroma of wet fur - not necessarily a bad thing. Tastes of caramel and tar with nice lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel light, thin.

Iím honestly not a big fan of this beer. Maybe Iím just past the whole pale lager thing but Stella certainly didnít wow me in any way.

33ml btl. I really like this beer, even though itís light. nice aroma with a bit of citrus, hops, and hay. nice small bubbles with a billowing, lasting head. slight lacing. this beer looks a lot better than a crap macro, despite itís lightness, and it smooth and pleasant going down with a bit of bitterness, and some dry citrus . i think this beer should be rated a bit better.

son gout vient plus de sa reputation. gout faible, biere overratťe. comparable a une biere populaire de chez nous, par exemple la bleue mais qui coute pas mal plus cher

A very classy, fairly hoppy belgian lager with a decent sized head. Great for special occasions.

Light and heavy carbonated. Skunky and malty. Very malty flavor with a very sour finish. Typical pale lager. Refreshing and delicious. I could drink litres of this stuff. Beer doesnít have to be complicated to be good.
