Run of the mill canned shelf tackle, but saying that it’s better than most. The bottom run of the Belgium ladder.

I wish I had read the reviews before I bought this, now I’m stuck 8 miles away from any store. I think the beer is a little old tasting (which should be normal) after its treck across the big pond. Nothing all that special. It tastes like a European Miller LIte with a dose of import and hint of skunk. I’ll take a fresh Bud over this. Thanks anyway.

Draught. Colour pale yellow and clear, with good head which fades quickly. Slightly carbonated, chemical aroma. Sweet with a forgettable after taste.

This truly fell short of expectations. The varaint flavour in the brew all seem to be doing their own thing without maintaining any sort of balence. Its fine golden appearance can be quite misleading once tasted. Quite a dissapointment.

Wife beater. Nuff said. Same old bog standard bulk brewed lager. Why this has become the British Lager of choice is intresting - the advertising campaign of expesive reasurence tapped into the upwardly aspirational attitueds of working-class drinkers of the late 80’s ant the same time as they shifted from the ’lower-class’, older image bitter to the ’younger’ larger beers. Stella has tried to repossition itself of late as a Belgian ’craft’ beer - the artois Bock brand brewed for the UK market, the new stemed branded glass, and 1950’s style ads - because in a survay Stella charted twice: at No1 as Stella Artois and at No7 as Wife Beater. Here endeth the leason.

almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - APR 18, 2007
in bottle, 330 ml., An aroma hoppy, but with a fund of flour, and something of vinegar. Golden pale color, very frothy. It is very gaseous, and with a thin body. Has a bitter flavor in palate, but ultimately it is a little a vinegar. In general, I can say that it is something better than the rest of the Chilean lager.

riversideAK (5650) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2007
Aroma of light crispness, some light malt, faint faint belgian golden smell? A pale gold color with a head that goes away right away. Flavor is crisp and refreshing. I got a little spiciness, but that might just have been skunkiness from the green bottle. Not bad, but not superior. Better than MBC

Ok first bone to pick. It is advertised as ’reassuringly expensive’ yet wholesales to pubs for about 45p. Go Figure. At least it has a bit more going on in it than bud! Very strong irony almost sulphery theme running through it. If I had to drink a mass produced lager it would probably be this one....

better than some of it’s mainstream uk competitors (fosters, carling, budweiser, carlsberg). that’s not saying much.
