2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow color with minimal sized white head. Aroma of water with some malt. Taste is same, sweet-ish water. Watery texture, soft carbonation. Still one of the best industrial pale lagers.

Overall-ordinary euros lager. Traducido al castellano, el sabor típico de una premium española pero por 1 eurazo.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aromat: z butelki słodowo z lekką ziołowością i skunem, po przelaniu lekki karton i alkohol, ale w granicach przyzwoitości
Wygląd: barwa żółta, przejrzyste, piana biała, szybko opada do cienkiej warstwy, zostawia delikatny lacing
Smak: słodowy, wodnisty, goryczka niska, ale przy braku ciała całkiem wyraźna
Podniebienie: wysokie nagazowanie, puste, pijalne, orzeźwiające

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
this one is really hitting the spot. smooth and easy, refreshing, light. Not a complex beer but the more I drink beer the more I don’t mind simply easy to drink beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. Pours golden colour with thick, soft white foam. Light bodied, but very nice taste. Really enjoyable.
This score is for original Belgian brew. Stella is brewed all over the world, and brews from other countries are usually inferior.
