A: This brew pours a pale, light golden crystal clear with a thick white head. The head retention is decent and has a good amount if lacing.
S: Has a pronounced pilsner malt sweetness with a grainy sweetness coming through. Nothing too overpowering but nothing outstanding. Quite low noble hop aroma with maybe a tiny bit of pear or apple.
T: Grainy sweetness with a mild spicy hop backbone. Has a typical pilsner malt flavor with a hint of corn grist sweetness and a bit of pear. Not much in the aftertaste other than a bit of bread crust, but not much. The flavor is a bit watered down and weak but not too off putting. Carbonation is medium to medium high.
M: Light body with a bit of a thin mouthfeel. It is a lager however and I would expect this to be a lighter beer so this doesn't bother me too much. Like I would expect a lawnmower beer to be.
O: It's an OK version of a pilsner brew. It flies a bit above the typical mass market offering but not one of my favorites. If this was in a cooler at a party with other cheap beers, I'd pick the stella but I probably wouldn't buy a sixer. That being said, I wouldn't hesitate to grab one after working outside all day.
