Cans, bottles, draught back home in the UK…. all forever ruined since the drop on ABV. This “for the British market” shite is now just like any other mass-marketed pish available on this beautiful island of ours. Nov ‘17 Edit: Revising my review to include a draught glass of Belgian domestic, 5.2% ABV Stella Artois. Unsurprisingly, this had a much cleaner taste than the chemical brew of the British variety. It is a clean, pale lager with a lasting fluffy head. A pleasure to drink but would be unlikely of me to search this out.

[Butelka 25.08.2018] Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa. Aromat i smak słodowy z nutami chmielowej goryczka. Wyczuwalne także gotowane warzywa. Goryczka niska, nasycenie średnie.

Revival trial tasting. Light earthy malty taste. Crisp and clean. Quite nice when super cold. Nowhere near as bad as I remembered.

Two half pint bottles, poured into a pint glass. Clear golden with a very thin, soapy looking white head. Pungent grassy aroma, flavour is corn sweetness, grass and a very bitter hop finish. It's a long time since I've drunk Stella, thought I'd give some party leftovers a try. About as poor as I'd expected.

330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 6/4/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Bit of skunky notes in the aromas that dissipated as it sat in the glass. Okay aromas of pale malt and minimal hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery feeling. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nicely flavorful and clean pils malt/grain presence with decent hop balance. An enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2017 On tap at various bars in Leuven. Pours a golden colour with a chemical looking white head. It's definitely not a tasty looking beer and that's because it is not a tasty beer. It tastes like a musty basement. It's an empty taste with some nasty tones of something you can't really figure out what it is. If you're not planning of going completely bonkers, don't drink this: it's not worth it.

This is not a good beer, but it can seem that way at a particular waypoint on your beer drinking journey. The aroma is wet hay and dead ass. It is fizzy urine looking and the taste is green bottle and light skunk, just watery beer water. Ok to chug for free or if the only other options are awful. Good for a karaoke night of kigus and cuddles.
