This must be one of the most overrated ’import’ beers in Canada/USA. The beer is modified to fit the market. Over here in Canada and the US, it is a shadow of its real Belgian way of tasting. Go to Belgium, have some Stella, and its lovely. Come to North America, and its a travesty. Its not even ’imported’. Most, if not all, is made ’under licence’ over here. The most amusing thing about stella here, (Im a Brit living in Canada) is the way its treated over here as some sort of revered sophisticated beer. Even served with great ceremony in silly little Stella glasses with huge heads, the barmaid having to ’knife’ off huge amounts of fobbing. Beer should not fob excessively. if a beer is fobbing alot, theres something wrong with the fob chamber, or the dispensing, or maybe the cellar/flashcooler is too warm. Im sorry to burst youre bubble guys, but in the UK, it is white trash beer. Yup, the beer of thugs, soccer holigans and plebs. The taste over here is kinda tasteless,wastery, overfizzy garbage. Little aroma, insipid appearance, minimal ’clean’ flavour, with a finish so short, you wonder whether one is actually drinking beer, or water with a tablespoon of beer added. No hoppy bitterness in the finish, and no lasting complexity after swallowing. This is ’beer’ for people who either dont know how beer tastes (and dont know any better), or dont like the way real beer tastes, if the latter, then this is really sad, as good beer should be as complex and satisfying as wine.

A very drinkable lager.. comparable to Heineken, although Stella’s not quite as flavorful, but easier to drink...very refreshing, satisfying to use as a summer beer...nice head, but goes away quickly. One of my favorite pale lagers

I really like Stella served VERY cold. I enjoy it with pastas, pizzas, salads and maybe fish/seafood.

This is my always in reserve standby. It’s a nice beer and is much better than American lagers. I love searching for the perfect beer and think I will find it in a micor-brewery or artisan type. I want the best beer possible to qwaff as I watch football.

Bottle. Not actually Belgian. This one is brewed in the UK. It’s lager, massed produced, not quite lowest common denominator but not far off.

The taste of acid stays in your mouth even after you brush the teeths 3 times. Very strong for a normal pilsen, is just more convenient cause is easier to find in 24h stores.
