Can bought in a Brussels street smelling like pee, drank in a warm bath. Clear golden with quite nice big white head. Sweet malts, honey, light herbal bitter finish with slight nasty chemical edge. Light to medium bodied. Nothing surprising here.

I’ve had decent Stella and bad stella on draught good, and good Stella in the old golf top cans and bad Stella in the bottles depends where its brewed but a better choice when the only option is fosters or carling it is a better option than the crap choice in UK high Street pubs

On keg at Nuneaton FC - Didn’t ask for this, but got it nonetheless. Yellow, fizzy, sweet. Didn’t get the urge to hit any women afterwards though.

I guess this is Belgium’s brewing answer for the non-sophisticated beer drinker. A classic Euro Pale Lager. No discernible adjuncts here like with typical meh American standard lagers (Budweiser/Miller/Coors). It is hoppy, malty, and just a bit sweet. Smell is of citrusy hops. It is basically a Heineken with more refined taste and less sulfur tang from the bottle. Plenty of better Belgium offerings (Belgium = Disneyworld of Beer!) out there, but this certainly fits the bill and appeals to the majority of beer drinker’s sensibilities. Good, just not great.

While waiting for a rare 35mm screening of Candyman in Toronto, I walked down King st. and looked for a place to have a few quick beers. 5$ tall boys at The Red Tomato! Not bad. Poured into glass, had a decent size head, a bit bubbly. Pale golden appearance. Good lacing. Good smooth mouthfeel. Well carbonated. Aromas a bit hoppy, wheaty. Flavours are lightly malted, hops, grains, citrus notes. Not too bad for a pre-screener, but will need to try this on tap at some point in the future.

Stella Artois looks nice in the glass, but not much in the taste. Beautiful deep amber pour with a fluffy white head. No aroma detected. NIce mouthfeel, but just not much there in the way of taste -- no complexity. Stella is about what you would expect from an InBev product.

Clear yellow-golden colored, small white soapy head with nice lacing. Aroma is malty, grainy, a bit metallic. Taste is of pale malts, grains, a bit corn and a bit of metal, low bitterness. Light to medium bodied and medium carbonation. From Zagrebacka Pivovara, better than some of its other products or Heineken and the like but just barely.

This beer is overrated and way overpriced, there’s nothing special here. For about the same price you can buy much better beers, like Heineken, Carlsberg, Samuel Adams, Beck’s or for an even lower price, you can buy some American pale lagers, like Schlitz and others like it.

Pours straw yellow with a slight white head. Aroma is a little skunky with a pinch of corn. Taste is skunky early with a ton of carbonation up front. Has a little sweetness on the backend with more skunk. Not bad not great.
