Stella Artois is one of the world’s best-selling beers and is enjoyed in more than 80 countries. Its full, characteristic flavour and high quality is assured through a superior brewing process and by using the finest ingredients available.
The UK version is brewed, filtered and kegged at Samlesbury. Batches are sent to Magor for pasteurising before being canned or bottled.

Bottle Green Mill. Chi,IL. Looks like a heineken and everything about it screams heineken basically. Light head with yellow body. Nose is dry. Very bitter and dry with little mouthfeel except a bit of stingyness.

Was not impressed, but this wasn’t a bad beer. Aroma from the bottle was kinda skunky, head didn’t last long, watery aftertaste. Highly drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

Stella is attempting to penetrate the US market for mediocre homogenized corporate import lager--and they’ve formulated the product just right to appeal to the ranks of Heineken and Becks aficionados. Finely balanced non-taste, with a hint of overhopping to make it seem European. Stella’s no better in Belgium or the UK, where it appeals to the same pretentious crowd. I’ll order it where there’s nothing better to show the Belgian flag--though as I do, I’m wishing yummy Primus was making the jump instead.

The european bud light. I have drank this every way possible- warm, cold, bottle or tap.. anyway you get it, its still comparable to a mass-produced beer from the states. Pretty boring.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 I have had this one a number of times but have never been particularly impressed. Sampled on draft for this rating the beer poured a medium yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light and fairly nondeScript. The flavor has a light malt element but otherwise is bland and inoffensive.

Had a pint from a Bar. Absolutley stunk horribly, I mean like, really bad, like a farm. Tasted nothing like the smell, it was quite nice, and really looked good.

Transparent, pale yellow in color. Frothy, creamy head and nice dissipating lace. Smells like a lager - yeasty with crisp lemons. Sticky and starchy on the palate. Astringent yet crisp. Lemon acidity. Very yeasty backdrop, which distinguishes it from others in the genre. Lemon shortbread aftertaste.

Poured from the tap, this pale yellow sparkling beer had a medium sized foamy head that lasted a few minutes leaving some lacing on the glass. The aroma was light, crisp, and clean with notes of citrus and some of the characteristic skunkiness. The flavor was not particularly complex but easy to consume. There were notes of citrus in a slightly sweet malt base.

Not so bad for a lager...there is some malt sweetness to this which gives it a rounder taste and less skunky than others...a solid thirst quencher.

Straightforward. A little skunky on the nose, but a good solid flavor and light finish. Not great nuance, but enjoyable all around.
