Props to Stella for the free chalice, it's a pretty nice glass.

A- Poured out of a bomber into the chalice. Straw-yellow body, with a 2-finger foamy head. Good lacing.

S- Classic German/Czech/Belgian skunked beer scent. Very pungent.

T- Light, smooth, and full of lighter grains. Definitely rice and corn, but also some slight hop kick at the end. Somewhat sweet like most lagers. Nothing too impressive taste-wise.

M- Light and very carbonated. Easy to drink, but the weight of water.

Overall, not terribly impressive, but better than your usual macros. Not quite a Yuengling, at least they have some flavor profile. Stella is just a smoother AAL that has slightly more body.

Poured from a 12 Oz bottle into pilsener glass

A - Clear Yellow, fizzy with lots of activity and anise think head that sticks around after a few sips. Sticks nicely to the glass too

S - Very Floral and sweet, Euro Skunk but not as firm, softer

T - Taste is a bit flat, could use something firmer in the body

M - A bit watery, somewhat boring nothing unpleasant, easy to drink, but could be a bit drier in the finish

O - A decent lager, but the appearance the introduction is the best part
