COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stella Artois is one of the worldís 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.

Yellow hue, with a very subtle malt and fruit aroma. Smooth and light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Almost no hop presence with a finish that disappears rather ingloriously. A pretty good session beer though. If I could get this for $2 a pint I would drink it more often, but itís always overpriced for what you are getting.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 There’s not much there- very light but fairly well balanced. It would be o.k. on a hot summer day, but not a sipper. I’d rate it above BMC and some of the Mexican beers. At it's price, it's certainly overpriced.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Rerate. Pours pale straw yeloow with a film of a white head left afeter it settles. Smells musty to me. Not much for flavor. Fairly watery, reminds me of Molson or Bud. It goes down easy but itís like drinking water.

Bottled. This was among the "premium beers" offered at a trendy nightclub. Served in a bottle that was nearly frozen. Even then, I must admit, there was a pleasant little hoppiness that even made itself felt through the cold. And there is something of a malt profile, perhaps like a watered down Duvel. Still, itís a beer thatís trying to be the Belgian Heineken.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2004
So this is the famed Stella Artois, that I have always heard so much about. Well I expected much more than what it really was, but it was still quite good. I love good Belgian brews, but I think this is a little more commercialized than a lot of the other really good Belgian ales and such. Nice light gold color with a somewhat hoppy bite.

Had this on tap. Not a bad lager. Light but has some bite to it, which I like. Definitely a big step up from the typical macro lagers.

I think that this is a good every day beer. fairly bitter, good medium taste that dosenít stick around too long.

Golden color, light weak aroma and taste, light body, light bitter finish.

Nothing much happening here. Your standard lager with a small bit of bitterness.

On tap. Pale golden color with a decent off white head. Strange aroma that I honestly couldnít pinpoint. Flavor of wet straw, with a mild hop bitterness. I think Belgium should stick with ales and let Germany handle the lagers. They do it much better.
