I think a lot of people don't get what is the key to this beers success.
This beer has extreme poundability. You can drink 6, 12, or 24 and keep
on drinking without undue distress to your G.I. tract. This a beer for
partying that all around within this context tastes pretty good.
I am on my 8th writing this review. Stella's appeal is that it is light
and crisp while still providing a solid buzz.
You can truly eat, drink, and be merry with Stella and not suffer
too much. This is for when a "session" could be eight hours.
This is why so many people like it. This is the beer for let's get
hammered and all have a good time. Let's pound some more!

This is a Euro pale for sure and, although the appearance is appealing with a frothy bright white head and golden color, pale is the word for its aroma, a very slight malt-grass combination. The taste falls in line with the smell, very little malt and hops going on. Watery and with the carbonation levels coupled with the faint flavors this feels and tastes more like a sparkling water pale ale cocktail.

Very faint smell of grain and sulpher. No head or lacing, clear yellow color. Extremely fizzy carbonation and watery. Slight malt and hops taste. Nothing special or offensive by this beer. Not worth the extra money for an import, though.

Bottle with best-by date of 10/11/17, so assume it is fairly fresh.

Pours pale,clear yellow, with light white head.

Barely-there aroma of bread & wet grass.

Flavor is very close to aroma. Quickly fades, so difficult to perceive what exactly is there. Finishes with a quick kiss of pleasant bitterness.

Feel thin, smooth, with an ample supply of very fine carbonation, that finishes with a pleasant crispness.

Overall, not much to it, but not unpleasant either. I likely won't ever get this again on my own, but would be OK on a hot day, if by some freak chance there was nothing else.
