This beer is refreshing and light. It is pale in color and has a more whole taste. It is slightly bitter.

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.

This beer is overrated and way overpriced, there's nothing special here. For about the same price you can buy much better beers, like Heineken, Carlsberg, Samuel Adams, Beck's or for an even lower price, you can buy some American pale lagers, like Schlitz and others like it.
