This 4.8% ABV beer pours yellow golden, highly carbonated, with a half inch of thick, foamy and creamy head. The aroma is fairly light, grain, straw from a barn, with a grassy note. The taste is quite light, some grain, very light straw, a bit metallic, and mildly bitter. The head adds a nice creaminess to the mouthfeel. This makes Stella Artois look like a Russian Imperial Stout, it is quite light for a Belgian beer, even a lager.
