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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear, light gold with a sudsy white head.
Mild, grain, lager aroma.
Taste is typical pale lager...though brighter and a bit more crisp than many EU lagers....
Truly, not too bad....bonus for no apparent green-bottle disease.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dorada muy clara, tres dedos de espuma muy blanca. Aroma malteado. Ultra suave en boca, aguada, pero muy bebible, con un tono ligeramente lupulado, aunque predomine la malta.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
There is a premium on this beer for it being an export. Being an export is always an "amazing thing "(see Corona.) All kidding aside
Clear yellow colour with a small white head. Smell of grass and light hops Light grass with some refreshing malt and light hops in the back. More flavorful than your average pale lager with nothing offputing.

500ml can, that I found on a train. 4.8%. Drank at home from a Stella glass, that I had to dust off. All very classy. Used to like this many moons ago. It’s changed, and possibly so have I. Still, it cost nowt, and it’s a tick...
