nice golden color. Slight skunky aroma. Taste was a little grainy with malt and citric flavor. Finished with a bit of dry hoppy flavor. Over all was expectimg more with all the hype of had 600 years to get this beer right. Good beer but dose not live up to the hype.

Poured a head that looked like a glob of spit, which surprisingly lasted the whole beer. Had a buttery aroma, warm bitter flavor. Nice old beer. I would have it again, though not my favorite

A pale lager in a fancy bottle. Some skunk and corn, and something along the lines of melon rind. A little odd, but it doesnt hurt the beer. I dont see myself buying this again; at least not for myself.

Ooh, I liked this one. It was tasty. I remember it as flavorful, with a good taste. The bottle it came in seemed very "upper class" if you will, and it was actually kind of a pain in the ass to get open... but very enjoyable none the less.

not bad and maltier than other pale lagers Ive had. Pretty light and not really anything special. However, its unoffensive and since its pretty common, Stellas a nice alternative to typical sports-bar swill.

Bottle into Stella-branded stem glass. Poured a decent 1.5 finger head, which is about the only thing to commend this brew. The color is a toxic yellow. The mouthfeel is almost a burning sensation that left me wanting to brush my teeth between sips. Very bitter with a noxious aftertaste. Described as skunky in the past and I see no reason to go against that assessment. Basically, this beer mocks the hipster doofus who favors it with each sip. The idea that some people think themselves advanced because they drink a Belgian beer when drinking Stella is sad, very sad. In the end, this beer embodies everything that kept me from drinking beer for years.

Pours to lite golden body with minimal head. Taste is watery and smooth. Not much aftertaste. Not a bad beer but not worthy of its reputation or premium price.

Pours a pale, clear gold with a rapidly diminishing small white head. Looks like a generic lager. Somewhat floral aroma with a little yeast and very little malt. Flavour is of a slightly sweet malt with a bit of bitter hops that have a slightly sharp flavour. Carbonation is a little overdone but reasonable and mouthfeel is only slightly more full than the typical pale lager, which still means its rather thin. Finish is sweet malt with some floral hop flavours following. Not a bad beer and easy enough to drink. Just way overhyped and overpriced. It seems pale lagers are just a mediocre style overall and this one doesnt do anything to change that.
