A: very nice looking, a deep yellow color beer golden style and with an impressive head.

S: Aroma is simple but not faint, it is intense, pure barley and maybe some hops.

T: Flavor is good it is just straight no complications the barley can be easily detected.

M: The sensation is pleasant very balanced with a center bittersweet starting and a little more bitter ending.

of all the yucky euro stuff out there, i really think this might be the head of the class. green bottles usually turn me off, especially on imports, but when its fresh and freezing cold, stella isnt bad. when you can find it in the can, thats when it usually tastes the best to me. it pours a thin yellow color with pretty good carbonation before the head fades to nothing. smells like a pale lager, balanced but boring, no yeast character at all. flavor is the same, tolerable but unexciting. the thing that i think makes this one is the feel. its light without being watery, and its bubbly without being soda, two things many of the american versions fail to accomplish. its infinitely drinkable for that reason, at least for me, and not a bad brew on a hot day or when youve had too much to eat and still want to drink beer. overall i will never buy this, but i will always always chose it over the bud lights of the world. i think its a step above that type of thing in terms of overall quality, especially if you can avoid the green glass.

Poured chilled in plastic cup--sorry, but that's all there was.

A: clear bright yellow, 2-finger head, trace of lacing
S: very little aroma--whiff of macrobrew
T: not offensive--just not flavorful
M: foamy, smooth

Overall, not a great beer. Good thing to drink when you don't want to know what you're drinking.
