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, pours that kinda scary clear, bright yellow that so typifies a certain bodily excretion. Aroma is basic lagerish and slightly skunky. Flavor is unremarkable pilsner malty with a nice hop bite. Light body and highly carbonated. This is one belgian that I have little fondness for.

This is the Budweiser of Belgium. Not bad, but with so many other really great brews, why is this so popular? Maybe because it's a good quantity, not-quality thirst-quencher.

What a marketing campaign, but a thin not inspiring brew to back it up. This would only impress a novice

Almost no aroma. Slight sweetness to it but the finish is bitter enough to make this worth buying in summer here. It has weaker flavors than more interesting lagers but that's fine when it's stupidly hot. And when it's stupidly hot it looks very nice. I only buy it for home when it is on 25% off special should indicate the "overpriced for quality" factor..

In the home of dedicated drinkers, this is the UK's top-selling lager. High acclaim indeed for this Belgian brute. A superb lager, minus any of the typical European over-sweetness. Spanner.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - FEB 10, 2004
on tap: pale malt aromas with sweet hop character. a bitter bite, that reminds me of bad beer taste. one of the definate worse belgium beers, probably average for this style.

Liked it..the freshness and its cool factor was just right in the heat here in Australia. Better than most Aussie lagers. On tap almost anywhere in Melbourne.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 On tap at Ned Divine’s... Crystal clear, light yellow lager. Mild butterscotch and floral notes. Good bitterness. Light-bodied with a thin, watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish. Why the f**k are they brewing a lager in Belgium? Just so BMC people can say they liked something exotic?

Clear golden colour with big foamy, but shortlived head. Aroma is mostly hops. Flavor is sweet with just slight bitterness. Palate is perfect.
