A - Nice slighly yellow large head. Attractive light yellow color with some small bubbles.

S - Slight lemony smell (or is it the color?).

T - I like the taste. Probably my favorite lager. Some sort of grainy taste or smell - maybe wheat toast? Hint of bitterness but not overpowering.

M - bubbly but not too much. Not too biting. Seems light like I could drink another one.

O - I've been mainly tasting the various ales and craft brewer beer since I've mainly drank lagers in the past. But, of the lagers I've been tasting I think this is my favorite.

Thanks Botham for the post-party freebies... this is one i'd never buy.
Are people really that gullible that "expensive = good" when it comes to ABInbev swill?

Pale gold, racing carbonation, puffy head of white foam that falls away after a couple minutes. Lots of lacing in the glass, skim breaks apart before the first sip.

Smells skunky due to the green bottle, and little else.

Tastes like nothing, water with a little skunky hop bitterness. Seriously, this has no taste. Biting carbonation, slightly crisp, yet utterly bland and forgettable. Don't let it warm up, because it starts to taste like hot garbage at room temperature.

A shame to call this beer Belgian. Insipid and numbingly dull, Stella is the antithesis of authentic Belgian brewing tradition.
