look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Very pale, straw-golden lager. Clear, light head, decent carbonation.
S - Basically no smell, on tap or from the bottle. Nothing bad, certainly, but no noticeable notes.
T - For a mass-market lager, you could do much worse than Stella. It's very drinkable, goes down very easy, and has absolutely no aftertaste. If you like bitter pils, then you won't like Stella; it's a much smoother lager. That, by itself, means it isn't for everyone. There aren't any real subtle notes, but it's got a bright flavor, without overpowering hops.
M - Meh. Look, it isn't bad in the mouth...but it's a lager. It's a little thin, a little light. Certainly nothing bad, but nothing great, either.
O - Again, for a lager - especially a major brewer lager - this is a very drinkable beer. There are only a handful of easily accessible lagers I would opt over this (Spaten comes to mind). If you're looking for complexity...you've grabbed the wrong beer. If you want a decent beer with no real drawbacks, something that pairs well with most food, you could do far worse.

I've had this on tap (pub pint glasses) and bottled (Spiegelau lager and pilsner glasses). It's fine either way. This is often the best lager available on tap for me (locally); not the best BEER, but the best lager. My OA rating is based on that: how good the beer is within its style, or niche.

Serving type: on-tap

2.4/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured into a cervoise glass.

Look: Clear golden body. Film of white foam after head recession. A few spots of lacing.

Aroma: Lots of skunk. Some roasted corn.

Taste: Very bright and sour to start. Subdued skunk. Toasted grains, I guess. Not a lot of real beer flavors here.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: Ridiculously overpriced. I bought one bottle to review. This beer is a skunk bomb.

Serving type: bottle
