I think this is an absolutely beautiful beer. Defenitely best consumed Ice Cold. Extremely refreshing and light beer. After a long stessful day, I find there is nothing better than popping back a few of these.

I think this is probably the best out of all the major advertised lagers here in Ireland (.ie Fosters, Carling, Heineken, Budweiser). As well as that, it is sold for an extremely good price. Basically, if I just wanted to have a few cans of beer to relax, this would be the one I would buy every time.

A: This brew pours a pale, light golden crystal clear with a thick white head. The head retention is decent and has a good amount if lacing.

S: Has a pronounced pilsner malt sweetness with a grainy sweetness coming through. Nothing too overpowering but nothing outstanding. Quite low noble hop aroma with maybe a tiny bit of pear or apple.

T: Grainy sweetness with a mild spicy hop backbone. Has a typical pilsner malt flavor with a hint of corn grist sweetness and a bit of pear. Not much in the aftertaste other than a bit of bread crust, but not much. The flavor is a bit watered down and weak but not too off putting. Carbonation is medium to medium high.

M: Light body with a bit of a thin mouthfeel. It is a lager however and I would expect this to be a lighter beer so this doesn't bother me too much. Like I would expect a lawnmower beer to be.

O: It's an OK version of a pilsner brew. It flies a bit above the typical mass market offering but not one of my favorites. If this was in a cooler at a party with other cheap beers, I'd pick the stella but I probably wouldn't buy a sixer. That being said, I wouldn't hesitate to grab one after working outside all day.
