This beer is a really light golden yellow, when poured it looks crisp and refreshing. It has a strong yeasty and wheaty smell and is bitter to the taste giving it almost a hopsy taste to it. Overall not a bad beer but not one of my favorites either.

Stella is an okay beer. I can definitely taste the hops and the bitterness but overall drinkable.

Stella is filtered. You should drink it in a chalice. There are Czech hops in the scent. It is good for vinaigrette. It has dialed up malt and hops.

This beer has a beautiful golden color, and hops aroma. It is bitter for a lager, but still refreshing.

Stella's first impression is its light yellow, nearly wheat like, color. It pours with a clear carbonation and foams slightly into a small cap. The smell of leaves and corn is apparent along with a very slight wood odor. The taste is very mild and non-offensive. Very light feel with slight carbonation and smooth texture.

Stella is a good beginner's beer and a good casual drink. It is not the most flavorful beer, but it is satisfying enough. Very light with a good, smooth finish.

The color of this beer is a dark yellow. The aroma you get is a little leafy smell and is kind of strong. Tasting this beer is very bland and has a light, feathery texture.

4/16/15 (Draft - Finley Dunnes Chicago) - Nice golden pour, generous carbonation and head. Pleasant hops and malt scent. Enjoyed the taste, crisp and clean texture, easy going down, good mix of hops and lemon / floral taste. Overall good offering.

Very simple pale lager. Its smooth and refreshing when cold but turns skunky very quickly.

I understand in the pantheon of great beer this does not rate....but that being said with a plate full of fresh seafood, specifically oysters....a ice cold tap stella is pretty amazing.

A perfect simple lager -- light but not unrefined, a great go-to drink with any meal. My only problem with Stella is that the bottle is small and it's easily drinkable -- meaning it goes too fast. The only beer I need to of to finish a meal. Otherwise, a great drink.
