Light and refreshing in a way few beers are. Feels clean and crisp in the way drinking liquid silver would. Not much of a looker. While it's not much special out of a bottle, on tap it's a completely different animal. A great go to.

I actually enjoyed this. It's 99 degrees outside and this is cold and fresh and crisp. Super refreshing. It's a beer that you don't have to think about. Pop the top off and start sipping. I don't have one of those special glasses to put it in. I am enjoying this right out of the bottle and it tastes good.

Stella Artois pours a clear, straw color, with a big, but dissipating head. Weak, almost no aroma, but hints of grain. Flavor is full of grain, and has a strange sweetness. Lots of adjunct flavors. On the flat-er side, but not completely flat. Overall, its not the worst; weak offensive flavors.

Pours a clear, golden color with about a half finger of white head that faded to a little lacing. Smell is primarily grain and corn. Taste follows, mostly grain flavor and a touch of bitterness. Flavor lingers for a few moments after the finish. Fairly crisp. It is what it is, taste is decent, drinkable, and certainly sessionable.

Crystal clear, low head retention, no real lacing. Nose is very grainy, some sweet canned corn, maybe some light hops in the background. Taste retains that grainy flavor, with a little bit of sweet corn and skunk mixed in. Honestly, wasn't a fan of this one. It lacked the crispness and could have been slightly dryer...and the skunkiness has to go.
