Bottled. Pale yellow, full head when poured. Strong hops, good carbonation. The nose is sweet malts, vegetables and grass... not to apetizing.. looks and feels better than it tastes. A good girls beer i guess.

People made such a big deal about resturaunts and barís here getting Stella. I finally couldnít avoid it any longer when my selection recently was bud or bud light, miller, or stella. SO I finally caved in. Somewhat skunky nose,followed by some astringent type corn and malt. Never really opens up. Taste is the same, some floral hints to pick out but mostly a skunk who just dined on a few leftover citric fruits. yawn

Bartzilla (608) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Nothing to see here. Move along. Still reading? OK. This is Belgiumís version of Heineken. A tiny bit stronger. If this is the best a bar has, Iíll drink it. Otherwise, blech. Iíll pass. Girls like it. Thatís how it got an 8 on the overall. Gets them too hammered though. It can get ugly, so keep an eye on her and switch her over to Fat Tire before she does too much damage and starts to cry or causes a scene or hits on your friends.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAY 19, 2006
This is one of those beers I keep going back and trying time after time because everyone seems to like it. However, I just donít get it. It does look pretty when poured in its special glass, but the taste just doesnít do it for me.

A light typical pale lager, has more flavor than many, but still not great. Would be good today, on a 100f Californian day!

alexanderj (3524) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle. Color is a light yellow. Minimal aroma and taste. Not very complex. Some malt and hops taste. Bland. Good for style, but not saying much in my opinion.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Draft. Aroma: Not much. Light graininess and maybe a hop. Appearance: Classic pale lager: golden yellow and clear. White head was full and frothy with decent retention. No lacing. Flavor: Light cereal grains, cooked vegetables, a touch of hop spice. Bland. Palate: Light bodied and watery. High carbonation. Overall: To say that this was better than a BMC beer, is like saying lethal injection is better than the electric chair. Theyíll both kill you, but maybe the injection wonít be as painful. The only strong flavor in this was an off flavor of cooked vegetables.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2006
From a bottle in a chilled mug: Pale gold and fizzy. Very weak, cereal aroma...virtually nonexistant, like the thin white head. Taste is surprisingly dry and refreshing. As the mug warms, this becomes somewhat watery. Definitely not as good as Iíd hoped.

Drank with Stegosaurus and Beereded_one at Newton brew fest. Eh not much to say about this. Skunky aroma with hints of corn. Some fruity tastes. Itís quite crappy.
