I got a pint of this given to me at a recent dinner I went to. I rarely buy beer in a green bottle, because to me there is a “Curse of the Green Bottle.” Every beer I’ve ever drank in a green bottle, I didn’t really care for. Heineken, Rolling Rock, Dos Equis, etc. Anyway, poured into a mug from the bottle.

Appearance – Pretty standard “beer” appearance, straw yellow with a decent head that floats for a bit of the beer then evaporates. Decent lacing.

Smell – Skunkiness, which is what I would expect from this style of beer, especially coming out of a green bottle.

Taste – Shockingly enough to me, this brew isn’t too bad. I’ve certainly had a lot worse out of the green glass. A bit of graininess, a hint of malts, and just a touch of hops. Nothing to flip out about, but better than most green bottle beers.

Mouthfeel – Crisp, clean, refreshing, super watered down.

Overall – For the fancy foreign name and the pretentiousness surrounding this brand sometimes, it tastes like any of the pale or adjunct lagers, just a bit better. At least they give out cool glasses. I would actually drink this again. Stella has broken the “Curse of the Green Bottle,” so for that I give props.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden color with a huge billowing white head with giant carbonation bubbles entrapped within. The head has a moderate retention but eventually subdues to give a good level of lacing. It is actually a very nice looking golden brew.

Smell – There is a bready backbone with a little bit of skunkiness mixed within.

Taste – Quite a simple crisp tasting beer overall. The taste of a bit of malty breadiness with some light notes of caramel to sweeten it up. The taste is quite consistent for the most part, but possibly a bit sweeter at the end.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. Very easy to drink and good for the style, but somewhat boring.

Overall – Pretty one dimensional but very easy to drink.
