The look of Stella was gold. The smell was of oak and a refreshing smell. The taste was light and very smooth. I would definitely recommend as I enjoyed it.

Beautiful packaging and marketing scheme. Probably why it is so expensive. It is tasty and smooth. Goes down easy. It is kind of bitter. Almost pallet cleansing... or as much as a beer can be

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 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.

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.
