Nice color, head seems lost when taken from a tap versus a bottle. A very good session beer - easy to drink. steinar (54) - rvk, ICELAND - JAN 3, 2011
Pours clear copper yellow with a rather small fast diminishing head. Aroma is very light with a hint of sweetness. Taste is very mild, some sweetness, very little bitterness is noticed. Finish is hardly noticeable but does linger a bit in the background. Palate is light bodied, watery with low carbonation. Overall as a pale lager i would say this is a good beer, it’s refreshing and mild and very drinkable as such. alecanaya (53) - Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Nice pale lager. I use to drink it all the time. Not overpowering and with an okay mouthfeel rick10485 (53) - oneonta, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
A very pleasent beer to have if you want to indulge and drink more than one. While my pals are binging with busch light I would break out a stella. Nice ale, not filling, and even bolder on tap. A fine commercial beer to proudly hold. andreic (53) - IRELAND - MAR 23, 2009
Pale yellow-gold with white head that left a little lacing. Slight perfumy aroma. Fairly thin and bland but quite bitter. Slight metallic taste to it. There are many better lagers out there...

Thin, pale pour. Not very smooth to drink, but mostly enjoyable. It""s easy to find better, tho. ironryan22 (52) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2006

Aroma: Nothing, absolutely nothing. Appearance: Doesn’t get a whole lot better than that I guess, but really shows that you can’t judge a book by its cover, or in this case you can’t polish a turd I guess. Taste: Skunk, this beer is the king of skunk, it’s so skunky that I feel like a need a tomato bath afterwards. Other than that the carbonation turns it into a mess of bubbles before you can even swallow. Best kept for washing out the taste of bad food. Palate: Fine initially, but that bubble storm I mentioned earlier ends any pleasure you might have had extraordinarily quickly. Overall: Really bad, don’t drink it unless you absolutely have nothing better, and frankly that’s a rather large category. CourageBest (51) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2001
A good lager to have if your having more than one. Many folks drink it with a top, but I think that makes it a bit too sweet.
