Australia

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

I wonder if Stella conjures up a myriad of pop culture references for anyone else like it does for me? (Streetcar named desire, Seinfeld, The Simpsons). Every time I get this beer at the pub I have to restrain myself from letting out a loud "STELLLA!", lucky for me I don't drink it that often.

This 330ml bottle was poured into a tulip shaped pint glass (yeah yeah I don't have a Pokal vessel yet).

A: The body presents an atypical Lager hue of gold and yellow. The white head began at around 2cm and ended at 0.2cm with minimal lacing - no I didn't actually physically measure it, these figures are approximates.

S: Sweet malt with a bit of cut grass - no surprises. I'm also picking up an aspect of grain too.

T: Bold notes of full sweet malts backed up by grain characters. There is very little hints of hops apart from a slight bitterness overall (nor should there be in a Lager - take note Aussie brewers!). The malts completely dominate this beer in triumphant fashion.

M: Lighter on carbonation than Australian Lagers - I would say as far as carbonation goes this beer is spot on for it's style. It's bordering on being watery but hey it's a Lager so I'm not going to deduct points there.

D: Very drinkable as far as Lagers go for me; possibly my least favourite style due to the amount of bad Lagers I've had - Australia is notorious as the world capital of rubbish Lagers *cough*VB*cough*. On that note I was concerned when I read that this beer was brewed at Fosters *boo-hiss* but it still tastes as the Belgian original does. Top marks!

Food match: Roast pork, roast chicken or a casserole dish. As for vegetarians: fried potatoes, green beans and tofurkey.
