A-poured into a chalice a golden color with nice head that will stick too the glass creating some lacing
S-the aroma is so strong a blind taste test is unfair , the slightly skunky smell lets you know a Stella has been opened
T-strong but pleasant , fresh tasting even for a mass produced green bottle beer
MF-nice , refreshing , crisp and clean , smooth sorry very smooth
Ov-very drinkable one of the best from europe

I poured a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance- Clear golden color with a fingers worth of head that disappears rather quickly. Nice amount of lacing.

Smell- Rather skunky.

Taste- Not a strong flavor. Pale malt with hints of grass.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with a fair amount of carbonation.

Overall- Pretty run-of-the-mill. Not bad but definitely not memorable either.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Serving type: 12 ounce bottle poured into a pokel glass.

Appearance: Poured a clear golden yellow with a nice white bubbly foam. About 1 fingers worth. Some carbonation visible. Light fizzy lacing was left as I drank the beer.

Aroma: Very yeasty. A little bit pungent to the nose.

Taste: Yeasty first and then some light hop bitterness. Maybe a little piney taste.

Palate: More than light but not really medium bodied. A little oily actually as there is some lingering taste in my mouth. Feels like something has coated the roof of my mouth.

Over all: This isn't a bad beer but it is not great. It has more flavor and pop than most of the American macros. That is a personal taste. When I have a beer I like it to have something going on and this beer has a little to offer that way. Given a choice between this and a Budweiser I would choose this.
