Quite drinkable - although I have to say I think it has got worse over the past three years.

I’m a fan of this beer rather than some of the other lager imports, nice taste fuller body would be nice though. A fan and will drink again

Deffinatly a beer to be seen with as the taste is nothing to write home about. Have tasted much better pilseners in my time. Crisp taste but leaves a lot to be desired

I tired the argentinian version brewed by the local Quilmes brewery. Watery, flat, a little dissapointing. Better than average aroma, perhaps fresh and with grassy notes. Too pale. I agree on the unpleasant afterstate.

Wifebeater indeed. The ultimate in marketing; how did InBev convince so many patrons of high-end beer bars in the US to pay $7.00 a glass for what is essentially stale Budweiser? This beer is a typical low-end Euro lager; no more no less. If you find yourself at that new pub with all the dark wood inside (you know the one) and are expected to pay premium prices at least go for the Hoegaarden tap. It is sure to be there.

Bottle form Pick N Save. Here is a beer with an ego. Pours bright yellow with disappearing head. Hop nose up front, very mild malt taste. While refreshing, it’s hype has more foam than it’s actual head. Grolsch is similar and better and costs about a buck less a sixer!. Here, for that extra buck you get the paper collar around the bottle cap - a Roman Collar, if you will, for something less than priestly from Belgium. Belgium has some great beers - this is not one of them! Save money and opt for Grolsch or a good German lager. You want a lager from Belgium? Watch an old Audrey Hepburn movie! Prosit!

Had a couple at an Indian pub called the Curry Pot right on the South China Sea in Stanley, Hong Kong, while enjoying Thai curry and watching English Premier League football on the big-screen telly! It was a heavy-duty cultural mellange that rendered Stella Artois a bit thin by contrast. But then, the food was spicy, so the lightness and drinkability were helpful. It took TWO 600 ml glasses to cool my tongue, and it was a pretty nice way to do it. My son had a less spicy meal (bad choice -- don’t order a hamburger at an Indian pub in Hong Kong!) and a Guinness Foreign Extra Stout (excellent choice anywhere on the planet!). He made both the worse and better selection than I.
Stella’s not a very powerful beer in terms of taste, but it had a nice head and a cool refreshing taste. This is not something to drink on its own -- it does well with spicy, hot foods, or with pizza.

Along with Jupiler , this is the only ale worth bothering for in Belgium. No surprise they are both interbrew.
Nice beer for a night out, but only 2nd place here!!!

A light and tasty Pilsner, a nice offering from Interbrew. Bubbly and crisp, and served with the foil on the bottle like champagne. Mm-mm.
