PlinyHarris (28) - - NOV 18, 2012
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.

RNDave (13) - Fillmore, California, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Hey for $1.99 a pint it’s somewhat acceptable. No aroma to speak of, marginal color and taste, and goes down without a whisper of anything special. Did I mention the $1.99 a pint thing?

KeefOz (1491) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2016
UK version. BB 31Jul16. Poured a crystal clear pale gold with a one- to two-finger bright white frothy head that retained OK and laced OK in rings. Carbonation moderate with medium sized bubbles. Taste of subtle grainy malts and a very slight sweetness; no obvious hops. Taste starts with a slight sweetness then becomes bland and slightly metallic; no real hops bitterness; slightly more malt flavour than the Legere which I parallel tasted. Light body. Crisp, clean, smooth but with a bland finish.

hrabren (772) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 5, 2016
0.5 l can, bought by Miss Vran?i?. Thanks! Clear golden, diminishing frothy white head. Straw, hay, light tart aroma, like cow stable. Light tart. Medium to high carbonation, medium body, dry grass finish, quite bad.

Demens (195) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2016
0,4l can. It was the Hungarian version brewed in Borsodi Sörgyár Kft with corn greese. Clear pale yellow colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Corny. Taste: Sweet start with a light bitter mouthfeel but too sweet. A bit watery but not bad. I’m sorry for the additional corn. Light body with medium carbonation. Long sour/light bitter finish. The original is better for sure.

A proper beer. A decent bulk beer. Nothing too special, but very okay to drink.
