A - Fizzy yellow beer. But wait, this head actually stays around for more than a second and has some decent lace.

S/T - Clean cereal grain sweetness. Even a touch of hops in the finish.

M - Light body, high carbonation, but it maintains a smooth, fluffy consistency. Not bad, and finishes mostly clean.

O - I couldn't really find much of anything wrong with this beer. With all the not so great publicity this gets around these parts, it's not all that bad, especially considering the style.

14.9 fl oz can

Extremely clear, nearly colorless slightly yellow. Minimal fizzy 1/2 finger "head" melts instantly.

Weak pilsner malt aroma. Not much else to say.

Nearly empty pilsner malt flavor with a slight touch of Belgian funk, and a trace of bitterness.

Thin, heavily carbonated mouthfeel, but not completely contradictory to the style.

I'm not sure what I expected here, but overall I'm not impressed. It's a step above the typical "big three."

Light golden, medium frothy/soapy head.

The aroma is slightly toasted barley malt and some floral, maybe earthy hops.

The taste is a nice balance of the malt, a little more hop presence than Heineken, but finishes very smooth and bready, and almost has a sweetness to it, much like Heineken.

I compare this to Heineken because it's almost exactly the same as far as aroma and taste profiles go.

This is the best of the economical beers I have tasted. Some people say the bud light of belgium, but Belgium has some of the best beer in the world, so I am fine drinking quite possibly one of the best value beers out there. I do recommend this beer if u don't want to spend more on high class stuff.

12 oz bottle at Comellas - can't believe I ordered this - should have gone with the wine.
A - pale yellow, nice head
S - skunky, hints of sulfur
T - slightly bitter, watery, a little stale. Not going well with my pasta
M - thin and watery, but cold
O - better on a hot summer day, or with different food, I suppose.

A- Pale golden. Thin weak lasting head actually leaves some good lacing.
S- The aroma is mild but is grainy, a touch of bland malt sweetness and a bit of bread.
T- It's clean generic sweetness up front. On the whole it's sweet but doesn't have much flavor. There is a papery, slightly oxidize flavor to it.
M- Light body, aggressive carb.
O- It's ok, but for all its name value its not that much better of a pale lager.

OK so I bought a case of imported and didn't realise I hadn't done The Review Thing.

Somewhat outdated, but here goes,

Pours a very (very) pale straw. Head comes and goes. Individual large bubbles rise, well spaced out.

Aromas of, erm Stella - doesn't help much does it? but some yeast some dought, some dryness. Unique.

Tastes is malts and dough, Not bad at all. Sweetness grows.

Overall, good drinking for style. Serve cold.
