COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This beer reeked of skunk apon opening. Faint grain/hop aroma. Taste pretty bland with some hop tingle. Weak malt flavor. Somewhat crisp. Overall, blah.

ok. i pounded this and a warsteiner at the same concert. both on tap, and pretty fresh. this beer loses. it might as well be PBR or Old Style. drinkable, poundable, but not soul quenching. ok. thin on the flavor, but not on the palate. i bet this would be good with chips, though. THE SHAH SLEEPS IN LEE HARVEY’S GRAVE.

Fairly decent clean tasting beer. Wish I could find it a bit more often around here! Sadly can’t. Has a bit of eau de skunk to the odour and flavour, but chilled down on a hot day it can’t be beaten.

My favourite commercial beer. A good and lasting head. For a mass produced beer this is top notch.

On tap at Silk City. Yep, I broke down and had a Stella. Before I had no respect for Stella drinkers - now even less. Upscale schlabberwasser with some malt and hops - but you guys should stick with Heineken or Grolsch.

Draught. Shame that, in the UK, this became a mass market draught lager as many pubs ruin it (and others) by serving too cold and too fizzy. Some pubs do manage to get the best out of Stella - a malty bite, a steady head, a lasting hoppiness. Not as good as the adverts make it out to be!

I was kind of disappointed with this one. Had that Heineken skunkness to it. Wasn't too flavorful and very carbonated. Thumbs down for the cost.

I didn't mind the taste of this beer, but the aroma is very skunky. nice foamy head and lots of bubbles; I have to agree with many of the other raters who said there is a "metallic" aftertaste. It is very hard to explain. It's like Corona with a bit of a bite.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2004
Canned - 500ml. Limpid golden body topped with a dense white head. Fair malty and hopsy aroma. Ordinary carbonated bitter taste with a metallic final. Nothing to impress me (can't believe they call it "bière de luxe"...), but it is still a step above Heineken.

Draft. OK pilsener. Aroma has light malt, kind of corny, faint herbal hops. Flavor is same as aroma. Lacks rich maltiness that a pilsener should showcase, and the hops don't taste like the classic Saaz or German noble varieties. Definitely better than BMC, but not on the same tier as true Czech or German pilseners.
