A very satisfying beer. Goes down smooth and has a flavor that I cant quite place in any other beer. I would definately drink it again.

STELLA! STELLLLLLLAAAAAAA!! Ah shit it aint a Street Car Named Desire. Not too bad for a Belgium brew. Has a decent aroma, hoppy, medium carbonation and a sweet bitter finish.

Bottle. Light golden color, fluffy white head, a lot of fizz, watery body. Little to know aroma, slight beer smell. Short beginning with little to no flavoir with a lot of fizz. Middle draw is long ending with a medium bitter after taste. Clean crisp distinct flavors. Refreshing light beer. Excellant summer beer as it is not a light beer but taste like one.

A beloved friend of mine came over from California and I took him to one of my favourite Yorkshire places. He spurned the whisky and the Timothy Taylor’s for a Stella. I was a bit upset that he’d come over here and have something so mass-produced when we’re back into some golden age for brewing real ales in the UK. He took the term "real ale" as a "No True Scotsman" fallacy and thought I was putting down his beloved Stella for some artificially valued "realness," so I had to explain to him that it was a lot like craft beer in the USA, independently-brewed to a method I don’t quite understand which classifies it as a real ale, like how real cider is basically actually made from fruit rather than radon. Unfortunately I couldn’t get through to him, and things were dampened somewhat until we met up with another friend who came up with the perfect analogy for it. It was like your girlfriend telling you she was into philosophy, and you going "Ah! Who do you like then?" and her going "Oh, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison." Stella Artois is to beer what Kurt Cobain is to philosophy.

Overrated - not too bad, but let down, not too terribly tasty (good or bad).

I was very egar to try this beer. However I was majorly disapointed. Seemed like a very strange beer. Bitter, light in color, and did NOT meet my expectations. Seems like it gets a bit too much praise for what its really worth.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2008 It is what it is. This beer is not going to change the world, but it will quietly introduce the unsuspecting public to a more Belgium flavor profile. Light and crisp this is a good beer to finish a long night off with. I have also heard that the European version varies from what I can get in the states.

A clear golden colour with quite a nice head for this style of beer. The aroma is basically insipid with nothing bad but nothing to recommend it either. It is clean and crisp on the palate and has just a vague hint of hop bitterness balanced by a mild sweetness. It finishes clean but unremarkable. Overall it doesn’t offend, it is better than some, but basically it’s BORING! I refuse to pay well over the price of a local lager just to be bored!
