3.08/5  rDev +21.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

500 mL can; best before July 2012. The Canadian version is listed at 4% - it's definitely labelled as "Stella Light" (or légère, because accents make things fancier), and the packaging is not the same as the "Stella 4%" listed in this brewery's list of beers. I have a feeling this is just a case of different labeling for different markets and there probably isn't much difference between the two anyway.

Pours a pale golden straw colour, topped with two fingers of light, puffy white head that dies down over a few minutes. Good lacing, especially for a light beer. The aroma is thoroughly uninteresting... pale grain malts and some grass. A bit of an adjunct vibe; expected for the style.

Definitely less flavourful than a regular Stella, but nothing overtly annoying. Light, grainy malts, some diluted wet hay with slightly sweet adjuncts. A bit of light fruitiness, and a clean finish with no aftertaste. Thin-bodied, watery, with pretty low carbonation for the style - less bite than the average macro, but still biting. Gets nastier as it warms, but if you drink light beer warm you're doing it wrong anyway.

Bland, watery, and completely uninteresting - but there is at least some agreeable flavour, and as far as light beers go I can't honestly say this is anything but above average. Drinkable and inoffensive - and that's all the praise I can muster. If you are looking for a light beer, this is certainly better than Coors/Bud Light-type stuff, but given the price and the miniscule differences involved, you might as well just buy something cheaper.

This is a very nice beer to sip on when you just want to lay back and relax. Very light and and smooth. Has a very grainy flavor but not overpowering. Bottle looks nice and is made well. I recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys a simple yet sophisticated beer.
