Fairly good. Nice hoppy finnish, really refreshing. Light bodied, suited for long drinking sessions.

Considering that this beer is 20 euro cents per 25cl bottle you canít expect too much of the flavour and Stella pretty much delivers on those expectations. However in my opinion it is refreshing and significantly better than many of its other rivals.

Pours a nice golden clear with minimal head, not much of smell, your typical macro brewer pale lager smell. Taste is malty, hay, corn, not great but i got a soft spot for this beer because i use to think this was the greatest beer ever but as you get older and experience other types of beer you quickly realize this beer isnít that great at all. Iím giving it a bit of high score here. Not much of an aftertaste, pretty bland, drink it ice cold on a really hot day!

First off I will say that I do really enjoy Stella Artois. The problem with it as with most mass produced beer is it loses some character. Stella is a pale lager that offers a refreshing crispness, a light dance on the tongue if you will. What Stella lacks is a full body, strong aroma, or any complexity. It pours pale straw yellow with a thick white bubbly head. There is little to no aroma as well. It does have more flavor than most US macro brew or alot of common lagers. Light taste with easy going hop character. It is bubbly and light in the mouth and is very drinkable. If you are in a bar with a limited selection, you are in the mood for larger, a Stella will not do you wrong. Keeping in mind that there are many lagers with way more complexity, however Stella is easy to find.

Simple beer with a medium bitter taste and a clear yellow color. An average beer that is easily consumed.

Marketing Guru set this up. An average beer at best, sold to the masses as better than the rest????? Funky glass makes it better then it actually is! Taste is íso-soí

i found this too be horrible, bottled at a friends house, i had it out of the bottle but i donít think that would make much of a difference with this, iíve heard alot about this being good, and well, itís not.

I rarely give low scores. But why waste your time on stella when you can have better belgium beer. If your going to have one, drink it with a hamburger or something, otherwise, I wouldnít waste my time looking for it, especially in a 100+ tap beer pub.

Bottle to glass. Very pleasant beer. Soft on the palate, pours nice. Packs a lo more flavor as it warms. If you intend on drinking a few i reccomend taking them all out of the fridge at the same time and really taste for what the temperature can do to this very satisfactory brew.
