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.

Química. Gosto de fermentação em larga escala. Aroma fraco, boa aparência, gosto com fundo azedo que altera o paladar.

Golden yellow color. Citrusy aroma. Watery. What is that aftertaste. A Belgian disappointment

ARH (296) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2014
11.2 oz bottle poured into a wine glass. It has a solvent-lemon note to the nose with a bread dough, light spice, and corn. It pours a sparkling pale honey color with a white fluffy head that reduces down to a medium fluffy ring with a dusting of head floating in the middle. It leaves a good amount of fluffy lacing on the glass. It’s a light sweet and bitter combination on the tongue. There’s quite a bit of fluffy carbonation with a thin texture and a light-medium body, so it goes down really easily. A lemon, banana, orange, and light spice and bread crust flavor finish it off. A spicy and grassy character stick around in the aftertaste, but is light and brief.

Drank on the beach under the hot sun. It was pretty refreshing, that’s about all it has going for it.

BreWedge (295) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap @ The Oak Ottawa. Pours a clear light gold with a medium white head. Aromas are grainy malts and a little funk. Tastes are similar - spent grains, slightly sweet adjunct (corn?), a little hop at the end. Light body, mild hop and alcohol bite on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Helder geel bier met gemiddeld schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en licht zoet. Gewoon bier, niet echt goed maar zeker niet slecht.

I've had this a couple times, once on draft and once from a bottle. It's ok, very plain, not much taste or aftertaste. It's beer so it's ok but not much to really recommend this, I'll take an IPA most any day instead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
