appearance: clear gold. head when poured is good, 1-2cm, but fades quickly. minimal lacing, good nucleation.
smell: bread and honey, gentle floral hops.
taste: crackers and honey dominate. slight hops note on the finish.
feel: light, bubbly, clean, and crisp.
overall: i bought a 6 pack of this and a 6 pack of guinness blonde together. tried this, tried the blonde, tried this again and wrote a review. i definitely prefer this. it has the classic lager feel and flavors and the price of a decent one. i will definitely drink this again.
Look: Clear gold color, pouring a 1 finger head. Dissipated into a moderate ring with lacing
Smell: Some malt, hoppy citrus and sweat cereal grains
Taste: Citrus and malt up front. Fairly neutral bitterness. Fades into hoppy citrus and then into toasty cereal grains
Feel: Smooth, moderate mouthfeel with a crisp finish
Overall: Its good, very smooth easy sipper. Refreshing yet still simple.
Thinner than regular Stella, which says it feels like a watered down version of Stella.
I enjoy Stella because it's easy drinking, but this has a little less mouth-feel, less satisfying, and probably less alcohol.
I'd skip it, for regular or dark or other more flavorful, more kick-for the buck, beers.
The best "gas station beer" I've ever had. Beautiful light color smells slightly skunky with a hint of citrus. Taste is citrusy but doesn't remain all the way through. Mouth feel is a bit chalky but not awful. I actively look for this beer. I often buy it over the "craft" options. Solid choice. It's a poolside in the summer beer that destroys all other beers of those types like michelob ultra etc. Someone else said "gasoline" smell. That literally made me laugh. Must have spilled a bit on their hands at the pump.
Without ready other reviews I didn't know if this is a new Stella type or rebrand. My wife picked it up at our local Wal-Mart, the cashier exclaimed "Oh this is supposed to be real good"!, another one said "them lagers is all you really need, there so heavy".
Im expecting usual skunky foreign lager. Will See. I like the look of the bottles , and packaging. Let's pop a top. Using a small tap glass, lets pour. I took a whiff from the bottle, an smelt gasoline? Is it the wrapper? No, poured it. yes gas, putty, odd, what the heck.
Pouring. I got to say one of the most beautifull colors I've seen bright pale gold. Lots of bubbles.
Got to say, not European. Nice flavor, crisp start, slight sweetness, lemony smooth on the tongue finish. Let it sit in your mouth a bit, let it warm I get that gasoline flavor, yum. Well, I wouldnt turn it down despite the "gas". Overall not bad easy drinkin. Something different than my usual choices, overall enjoyable.
Seemed like just the right vibe for the Spring Equinox '22.
Clear, crisp, golden snappy light pale lager with a hint of citrus. Not sure if the subtle citrus is from an adjunct addition or just from the hops?. Either way, it's seriously refreshing and will pair well with just about any food.
It's very simple with crisp and grainy malt, herbal yeast and citrus, green hops way down deep in the flavor.
Year-Round Release - 6 pack
11.2 oz. bottle with best before date 20FEB22 (2/20/22) - 4.5% ABV / ? IBU
Brewed and bottled in Baldwinsville, NY
Poured into an unbranded pilsner glass
Look - Pours a dense and fluffy white head that evaporates quickly. Crystal clear, pale yellow appearance with tons of streaming bubbles.
Smell - The scent is mostly barley malt with a hint of grassy hops and maybe some lager yeast.
Taste - The taste follows the nose and there's also some lemon citrus qualities. No bitterness to speak of.
Feel - Has a thin, crisp, and somewhat chalky mouthfeel and finishes pretty dry.
Overall - The flavors are good, but the slightly chalky mouthfeel brings the drinkability down a bit.
Nothing special about this beer. Although it's Stella Artois it is not much more appealing than a Miller Highlife. There isn't any real positive things I can say about it except it sure beats the he'll out of a Natural Light and it would make a good light beer to drink with a meal. I just don't care for lagers much if they come out of an American brewery. European lagers are best. Stella Artois is being brewed anheisser Busch now. They can fuck up just about any beer with decency and character. Ales are the the way to go. Most all ales have a better flavor profile than lagers. Even the crappiest ones
Quite pitiful. It looks good, pours good and has an average feel. The taste is utter shite however. Tastes like carbonated mango juice and urine. Incredibly bitter and sharp upon initial mouthful. Solstice Day is the shortest day of the year, if only my experience with this beer was just that.
25 oz can from Roth's Market in West Salem OR.
Sadly brewed in the USA .
Actually pours a slightly darker gold then expected. Nice white head.Goes fast though.Some lacing.
Aroma is of light barley..malts. NOt too bad,least not corny.
Taste is sweet at first then fuller and malty slight bitterness.
Mouth feel is light but the carbonation isnt good for the style. Way too weak.
Not great but not awful.
Clear orangish-gold, head produced coarse foam that vanished quickly.
Thin yet bright citrus and spice on the nose and equally on the tongue.
A bit watery, kind of reminiscent of a blue moon.
A wimpy body and underwhelming carbonation makes the watery problem even worse.
An okay summer chugger that just isn't worth the premium price
A light shade of gold color with a creamy white cap.
Aroma is on the mild side. I get light citrus in a sort of lemony way. There is a hop edge in the scent but it's mild.
Taste is straight forward Euro lager which is to say hoppy enough to notice but not enough to scare children or frighten horses. I get some grain flavor which reminds me of Miller High Life without the sweetness. It really does not stand up well against common ice beer and at twice the price it's an easy future pass.
Texture is a shade past medium with decent carbonation.
Overall this beer gives me the impression of a promising child who's too shy to step forward. I get the concept of repackaging to stimulate sales but changing the name of a horse doesn't make it run any faster.
Busch beer in new packaging. The high reviews for this are laughable. Lemongrass? Been smoking to much lemongrass.. corn rice adjuncts grass.
Do yourself a favor and buy a icehouse for 1.15. This is very bad
