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.

14.9 oz can poured into my FREE Stella Artois chalice.
Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with two fingers of fluffy foam. Looks quite nice, actually. Aroma is bready, cooked corn, slightly vegetal.
The first sip is a very mild, slightly sweet flavor, with a slight bitter vegetal aftertaste. Bitterness seems to linger and wears on the tongue after a while.
This is a clean-tasting lager with no real offensive flavors. Overall pretty bland, but you can do a lot worse.

This massed produced Belgium beer, does not live up to the other beers of Belgium, it is only well known becuase of mass marketing in the United States and hipsters. It is marginally better than massed produced pale lagers in the United States. It pours golden clear, with little lacing, and a medium sized head that dissapears pretty fast after arriving. It has a hoppy, stale, and skunky taste, with twinges of rice and wheat, and the it has the aroma of malt and hops. Goes down easy, low alcohol content, and less filling makes it good for barabacueing and partying, not much else. Nothing to get excited about, not the best, not the worst.
