1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not much aroma. A little skunkiness. Pours clear straw color with a nice white head that dissipates quickly. Tastes like...well a pale lager. Slight sweetness up front. Slightly bitter finish. Nothing really new here. The beer from my bottle seems to have a sort of salty after taste that lingers on and on, which is really strange. Not my type of beer.

Great on a summer afternoon or with tacos. Crisp taste. Even palate. No aroma. Decent bland appearance.

"the most acclaimed of Belgian beers"...really? for a standard lager, not bad. fairly clean and crisp, but nothing that stands out from the crowd. every once and a while i’ll be in the mood for one, but not often."

It’s a decent beer when I am not able to get my hands on a Beck’s Sapphire. I don’t find anything special about the bottle appearance or color of the beer, but I do enjoy the taste ... but not the slight "after bite" when finished.
For the price ... I would expect more ... but there are others. \m/

500ml can served in a chalice.
A: Pours the traditional Lager golden-yellow color with a big bubbled fluffy head. Clear. Very few lacings left
S: Sweet grains (a bit bubblegum). Very biscuity. Yeasts. Floral and grassy hops
T: Follows the nose. Sweet grains, biscuit and hops. Light citrus hops bitterness. It could be a bit less watery to be honest
M: Very light body. Medium carbonation
O: Really honest and decent Lager for a macro brewery. Probably the worst Belgians can do :p. Suitable for a hot sunny day...

Good beer, had that skunky flavor. I enjoyed it alone, didn’t try a dish with it. Maybe this year for the holidays when I feel one I’ll try it with the turkey

Pours a nice golden color with a small white head. Bit of a malty flavor, very light. Sessionable.

Pours light honey with moderate white head. A taste of honey, very little hops and grain, with a very light body and some carbonation. Ok beer, but nothing that sticks in my memory after I’ve drank it. Casual drinking beer.

In the UK, there are 2 types of Stella Artois you can buy. 1.“Real” Stella brewed in Belgium.(You can buy this version from odd off licence). 2.UK replica version sold in major UK supermarkets. 1. This is rather nice and refreshing Belgian lager. Very pale golden colour, sweet, yet hint of hop and dry finish. 2. UK replica version tastes awful, has nasty metallic aftertaste.

Flaske på gatwick flyplass. Lys og intetsigende på smak, men med god friskhet.........

330ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Straw pale, transparent body with thin creamy head. Great effervescence and nice lager lacing. Malty sweetness on the nose, biscuit aromas. Thin sweet body with minimal saaz hop presence. Drier than a lot of lagers.
