look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - It was a good rich gold color with a nicely forming head that remained present until about two thirds of the beer had been drank.

S - It had multiple distinct hop scents with a little bit of citrus and some more bitter notes.

T - I have not had a wide variety of Euro PA's so it may be a matter of style that I don't understand, but to me it started out as a good delievery of some very sharp/tangy flavours on a slightly sweet undertone, but the strong sharp after-taste just ruined the experience for me

M - It had a very strong carbonation to it, which didn't help the taste

O - Something I would never want to pick again if there's a selection, but a change of pace is always a good thing

green 11.2 oz. bottle.

pours out a pale golden straw colour with a moderate white head supported by some big bubbled carbonation. spotty lace. light grainy aroma, hints of white grapes, a bit of pear, and some faint euro skunk. flowery hoppiness adds a nice touch. the taste follows suit, showing off some gritty graininess to compliment the grape skin and coarse hop profile. along with the raw hop bitterness, it finishes quite dry. this belgian lager has a pretty light body on it with heavy mineral mouthfeel, albeit a touch watery. ok quenches but lacks any real panache.

overall, having never tasted this beer before, i'm a bit disappointed even by euro lager standards. price point is especially bad. there are many others within this style i would rather drink before stella. i can't ever see myself revisiting this again after i polish off this 12 pack.
