MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Bottle: Pours a light golden yellow with a medium white head. Mildly skunky aroma. A hint of coffee. Mild malt flavor but it has a slight vegetal flavor also. Kind of strange but not bad.

Nice hoppy flavour with a bit of bitterness at the end. Had no expectations of this beer and was pleasantly suprised. Bit of saltiness at the end.

9 June 2003 - Light malt aroma. Big head with good retention. Flavour is quite clean with a fair bit of hop. Bland, non-fulfilling the promise of its creatively priced (rip off) $4-20, not sure how much it is these days. Lacks originality, malt, hops, need I go on......... so I won’t.

I thought that this was ok for a small producer, it had spark, bite as well as a good colour and head when poured. It tastes something like the "Chopper Heavy" they put out also, but I find the Chopper a better buzz for your buck!

This stuff ain't so bad. It's pretty boring, but it's clean and nice and far better than the beer it's ripping off (Stella). Pours with a pretty big, nice head and decent retention. Minus appearance points for biting Stella Artois' label. Aroma is lightly malty and a bit of grassy hop. Flavour is quite clean with a fair bit of hop, which tastes like NZ Saaz. It's not brilliant but it's better than a 1.86 beer!

This is more of a pilsener than a lager, it hads a grassy hoppy aroma, a harsh bitterness and a metallic finish. Not good.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2003
Stella artois try hard. Skunky. Too rich. Nothing apart from sweetness and mild malt palate. Head dissolved like a fruit tingle in water. Would be a good sessoinal beer if it wasnt so rich and sweet i wont be going back for the free glass with a 6 pack.

Pretty average sort of beer. Like CQC i got free crystals glasses with a beer that was already pretty cheap. I got what i payed for. One dimensional average australian mainstream 'premium' beer. cheers

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2003 This was on special, a 4 pack for $6. It was quite good considering how cheap it was, but I wont be buying it again.

The brewer of this beer was famous for winning home brew competitions. He then moved from that to commercial brewing, working at Scharers at a time when they had 'problems' with their brews. Well, has he taken this curse to stockade. I just don't get the premium crap. It is a beer that is like other beers of its style. Nothing more. Certainly not worth the $3.50 I paid either.
