This beer is a great alternative to Budweiser no doubt.. costly but worth it. So much more depth than any macrobrew crap here. Good beer to party with if you got the cash..This beer is Heineken’s twin sister

Good, solid beer. Don’t have too much to say about it beside that. Good beer that goes with any meal.

Top of the hangover beers this really is not worth drinking in my opinion despite the fact it is sold everywhere this has a beefy texture to it. Typical of the idiots who drink it.

Pours golden as most if not all pale lagers are, tastes a bit pleasant, it’s decent as there is not a terrible skunky flavor but there isn’t anything that stands out. It is preferred, in my opinion, over just about every other light lager on the market.

This must be one of the most overrated ’import’ beers in Canada/USA. The beer is modified to fit the market. Over here in Canada and the US, it is a shadow of its real Belgian way of tasting. Go to Belgium, have some Stella, and its lovely. Come to North America, and its a travesty. Its not even ’imported’. Most, if not all, is made ’under licence’ over here. The most amusing thing about stella here, (Im a Brit living in Canada) is the way its treated over here as some sort of revered sophisticated beer. Even served with great ceremony in silly little Stella glasses with huge heads, the barmaid having to ’knife’ off huge amounts of fobbing. Beer should not fob excessively. if a beer is fobbing alot, theres something wrong with the fob chamber, or the dispensing, or maybe the cellar/flashcooler is too warm. Im sorry to burst youre bubble guys, but in the UK, it is white trash beer. Yup, the beer of thugs, soccer holigans and plebs. The taste over here is kinda tasteless,wastery, overfizzy garbage. Little aroma, insipid appearance, minimal ’clean’ flavour, with a finish so short, you wonder whether one is actually drinking beer, or water with a tablespoon of beer added. No hoppy bitterness in the finish, and no lasting complexity after swallowing. This is ’beer’ for people who either dont know how beer tastes (and dont know any better), or dont like the way real beer tastes, if the latter, then this is really sad, as good beer should be as complex and satisfying as wine.
