I prefer it on draught than in bottle. World renown and consistent.

Well, a friend brought a case to a cookout, so why not. I haven't had Stella since I lived in England over a decade ago. It looks passing fair, translucent and bubbly , the color of dehydration. Smells acceptable but heavily corn- or rice-influenced, and a bit light-touched despite coming straight from a cardboard case. But the taste. Not the worst beer I've had, but it's enough to make me question this friend. I hope it makes a better drain cleaner than beer.

For such a prestigious and expensive beer it really comes up short. The value just ain't there.

For something that advertises itself as a world class beer it tastes like a bad batch of Naragansett.

Disclaimer: We drank this in a paper cup like it deserves.

Tried beer out of bottle. Initial smell is corn, hops, and some skunky notes. Taste is very mellow in the beginning, but the spicy hops come out in the end of the mouthful. Beer has a light feel, medium carbonation, and almost no aftertaste. Beer seems to be refreshing overall.

This beer is a good alternative to the American Macrobrews, especially in the summer as this beer has a very light feel to it. I picked up a 12pack for $13.99, so price is a big bonus. Overall the beer is okay, which is the best way to describe it-- not offensive at all, can be refreshing, but nothing is great about this at all. It is almost like they perfected the American Adjunct Lager in Belgium.

Uck. I don't drink regular beer anymore but was out & the father-in-law bought me one. So I drank it. Yes, it was pretty cold. Yes, it needed to be. Yes, the last sip tasted worse than the first obviously because it had warmed some and so the flavour could in fact be tasted. Quite likely better than Coors Light et al but still full of metallic and adjunct flavours. Yeah, they use corn to brew this, and yeah, it tastes like it.
