330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 6/4/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Bit of skunky notes in the aromas that dissipated as it sat in the glass. Okay aromas of pale malt and minimal hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery feeling. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nicely flavorful and clean pils malt/grain presence with decent hop balance. An enjoyable offering.

Taste is more premium than other beers the same price. Not as hoppy as other lager. Not overly carbonated but far from flat so it has a very nice mouth-feel. Smells of skunk but doesn't taste like it at all. Always a beer you can rely on.

Basically an attempt at Budweiser but not as good. Decent everyday beer but why drink it when Bud is cheaper. The most apparent difference is the mouth feel where Bud is more creamy and Stella as closer to PBR.

Looks like a typical lager. Smell is skunk and hops. Taste is zero skunk, which is a good thing. Grains, faint hops. Mouth feel is light and goes down easy. Very mediocre beer.

Clear gold with a fizzy head. Mild malt nose and body with moderate carbonation. Another straightforward lager.
