Even before I became a beer geek I never really liked Stella, but since I have not had one in a couple years, I thought I would give it another open-minded chance. That was a mistake.

APPEARANCE: Poured out of the tap a pale yellow. What little head there was vanished almost immediately.

SMELL: The only detectable smell was of corn.

TASTE: This was one of the very few undrinkable beers I have ever had. I was able to get two sips in before having to dump it. The only detectable flavor reminded me of the smell of cat urine. It was wretched.

MOUTHFEEL: I wasn't able to take a third sip in order to figure out what the mouthfeel was like.

OVERALL: This was simply an undrinkable beer.

Serving type: on-tap

Another pale euro lager to the bone. Light and sweet through yellow body, marginal head, and marginal lacing to boot.

Smells like some artificial sweetener and grain. Nothing good about this.

Much like the nose, this is sweet and nasty stuff. I don’t often just say a beer tastes like shit but damn this one is king! This is just awful. The grains and the body are ok but the sweet flavor at the front is just beyond off putting.

To add insult to insult this one is over carbonated and is hard to drink as a result.

While this has more flavor than a bud or bud light the flavor here is just terrible. This is not as bad as a miller chill but damn it is bad!

First had: don't remember, but have had on tap an in bottles

Pours--typically into its own signature glassware, because it's so elitist and so Belgian--a clear golden yellow, fizzy, with a large frothy white head. Aroma of pale grains, corn, light yeast, ever so slightly floral. Taste of pale, stale grains, skunky, slightly sweet, slightly sour, but no really distinctive flavor ever coming to the foreground, other than the skunk which leaves an acrid aftertaste. Light body, and drinkable only in complete desperation.

A "fancy" glass doesn't make a beer good.

Had had this brew several years ago and thought it a decent lager. Obviously my tastes and experience level have changed. Or maybe the beer got worse?
Pours a clear, pale yellow with a head full of big bubbles that drops like a rock.
Smell is strictly hops, huge and exclusively. Smells like any other megabrew lager.
Taste is hops and nothing else. This is Bud/Coors/Miller with slightly more flavor.
Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied and very fizzy. Not effervescent, just fizzy, like tonic water.
Drinkability: WHY? The aforementioned tonic water is higher on my list to drink than this dreck.Glad it was only a tasting. I poured this one on the ground. Alas, NOT a waste.
