I guess I just dont like Pilsners, I would only put this half a notch above Bud.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2003
Regular golden pils with huge chunky white head. Skunky aroma (damned green bottles) Not much flavor. Thin and watery. Some hop bitterness. The worst beer brewed in Belgium I've had so far. With so many good ones, why bother with this?

Skunky, sweet and with that metallic cling-to-the-front-of-your-tongue type thing that comes with skunking. OK head retention and perfect clarity obviously, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Didn't think it was any good but then I had a Tooheys New and this killed in comparison.

500 ml can. Clear pale blonde color, medium fugaceous head. Slightly fruity and malty aroma. Weak flavor of fruits and malt. Very weak bitter finish. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, watery texture. Cheap and boring.

I paid 3 bucks to add this notch to my beltloop, and at least it wasn’t a 300 dollar call girl who didn’t have 3 inputs. Pale yellow with medium head and some lacing, which gave this a 2 for appearance. Aroma of mild hopcit, and a noticable thiosulfate skunk odor. Tastes rather bland, with some hopcit, and a fairly crisp, smooth finish. I won’t buy this again, and with all the great Belgian beers out there, I can’t understand why this is so huge in Europe....

If you go into a Belgiun beer hold and ask for a stella, they will {probably laugh and} tell you that stella is only served under bridges and behind bus stations. Pours a EXTREEM blond, froathy head. Med-high carbonation. Aroma is pure fule {boose} slight grain, more fule. mouthfeel is holow, watery, flat. Taste is of malt liquor, corn, rubbing alcohol, unfermented shugar, yeast resin. aftertaste is watery, skunky, boose on the breath. Verdict: Save you’re money, this is a european copy of a american lager {why would anyone do that?} buy a bud and stop pretending you’re out for anything other than a drunk. cheers
