1.86/5  rDev -39.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Look: Golden yellow with a 1/4 inch white head and no real retention and some circular lacing

Smell: A slight barn yard funk and some banana

Taste: Not much flavor here at all. Some pale malt and that's about it

Mouthfeel: This and fair amount of carbonation

Overall: Extremely boring yet drinkable so I guess that counts for something

Stella...STELLLA!!!

Like many-a macro, this pours straw yellow with a big sudsy white head. It actually retains pretty well and leaves lacing.

The nose is pretty off-putting. Cooked veggies, lemon, general blech macro graininess, you get the gist.

Taste is slightly better. Sweetish pale malt, slight Euro hops give a lemon/herbal-ish feel, grainy, bready. Not quite bad but certainly nothing to write home about. Decent mouthfeel, high carbonation, slightly off-tasting.

It's funny that people think that imported macros (Stella, Beck's, Molson) are worth the extra money compared to their U.S. counterparts...not much of a difference in quality or taste really.

Straw gold with a large cap of bone white head. The somewhat retentive head creates cascading sheets of lace. Light crackery malt aroma with a hint of lemon. Mild matchhead character. No lightstruck character. Mildly sweet up front before finishing with lemon peel and very mild bitterness. The finish is short and crisp. Light bodied with much softer carbonation than most industrial lagers.

Lean on flavour, but at least it's clean flavour. Not exactly my go-to beer, but I wont say I disliked it either. At least the gift set it came in contained a glass. Merry Christmas!

12oz green bottle.

Pours a crystal clear light gold with a small head. Much more lacing than I expected, some decent retention as well.

Aroma has some light sulfur going on, and a bit of hops. Grainy as well. No skunk, surprisingly.

Very light and not bitter, with a somewhat sweet flavor overall. Grainy, husky flavor comes through again, with a touch of floral and grassy hop flavor. Pretty clean. The mouthfeel is light and watery, but the carbonation is soft and refined.

Better than I expected. Boring, but easy-drinking and cleaner than a lot of the Euro-lagers.
