A beloved friend of mine came over from California and I took him to one of my favourite Yorkshire places. He spurned the whisky and the Timothy Taylor’s for a Stella. I was a bit upset that he’d come over here and have something so mass-produced when we’re back into some golden age for brewing real ales in the UK. He took the term "real ale" as a "No True Scotsman" fallacy and thought I was putting down his beloved Stella for some artificially valued "realness," so I had to explain to him that it was a lot like craft beer in the USA, independently-brewed to a method I don’t quite understand which classifies it as a real ale, like how real cider is basically actually made from fruit rather than radon. Unfortunately I couldn’t get through to him, and things were dampened somewhat until we met up with another friend who came up with the perfect analogy for it. It was like your girlfriend telling you she was into philosophy, and you going "Ah! Who do you like then?" and her going "Oh, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison." Stella Artois is to beer what Kurt Cobain is to philosophy.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma was a bit skunky. The taste is corn, malt, and bitterness. It’s pretty full and heavy for a beer of this style. I rate it slightly higher than the average American macro.

Ucice 13/8 2015. 50 cl can from local market (Maxi). Pours clear pale yellow with big white head. Settles as thin layer of foam with some lacing. Aroma is malty with some sharp bitterness. Flavour is a little skunky with mild bitterness in the aftertaste. I love the name! I like the can and it's design - but the beer is not particulary interesting.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a small, white head that laces. Mild aroma of malt, corn and fruit. Sweet flavour of corn, malt and grass with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. Ok, but nothing special.
