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.

The 11.2 oz. bottled version pour clear and pale yellow in appearance with a medium bright white head. The aroma features straw and light hops. But, this beer is dry throughout--from initial palate to long-lasting finish. Mid-palate is unremarkable; yet, this medium-bodied Pilsner-style lager is refreshing and thirst quenching. A respectable offering in the right setting.

(Bottle 25 cl) Pale golden, decent head (for a pilsener). Dry, soft body. Pleasant alright with just the right dose of hops to distinguish it from the more bland macrobrews. An OK pils. 030897

I don’t know why I was expecting a Belgian-style beer. This reminded me of a macro German Pils, only not quite at even that level. Hoppy aroma, white fluffy head. Very carbonated with hoppy palate and dry finish. Very little to talk about here.

Very clean, drinkable beer. Light flavor, goes well with spicy or strong flavored foods.

Pale yellow gold hue, soft foamy white head, but falls quickly, pale malt, floral hop aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with pale malt, sweet corny note in a mild hoppy finish. A standard international lager

(Draught at Koala, Prague) Straw yellow colour, Quite good head with some lacing. Aroma from hops and citrus. Watery. Flavour from cooked vegetables. Almost no bitterness. Light bodied.

Bottled. Pale goldne colour. Small, lacey head. Weak, hoppy aroma. Typical pale lager taste. Worse than Jupiler.

Had a couple at an Indian pub called the Curry Pot right on the South China Sea in Stanley, Hong Kong, while enjoying Thai curry and watching English Premier League football on the big-screen telly! It was a heavy-duty cultural mellange that rendered Stella Artois a bit thin by contrast. But then, the food was spicy, so the lightness and drinkability were helpful. It took TWO 600 ml glasses to cool my tongue, and it was a pretty nice way to do it. My son had a less spicy meal (bad choice -- don’t order a hamburger at an Indian pub in Hong Kong!) and a Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (excellent choice anywhere on the planet!). He made both the worse and better selection than I. Stella’s not a very powerful beer in terms of taste, but it had a nice head and a cool refreshing taste. This is not something to drink on its own -- it does well with spicy, hot foods, or with pizza.

For a low rated beer, this stuff is good on tap, only when the lines are clean. Pours nice with a big white head. Nice hop aroma and subtle spices. Tastes smooth with a nice peppery bite. Crisp and dry with some grassiness.
