2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow body with a white head. Aroma is faint malty, hay and fruits but weak. Taste is sweet and watery with low bitterness. Not much but better than most lagers you find everywhere.

Crisp and lots of carbonation. Pale color when poured and fairly mild flavor. Not something I would drink at home, but its fine at a party

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weak grainy smell. Pours out light yellow to light golden color. I really don’t see what all the hype is about. I would stick to something in a paper bag.

Stella Artois. The Bud Light of Belgium. It tastes barely better than all the crappy macros. This is for guys who used to drink Natural Light and think they are ordering something interesting. Also called wife beater in the UK. Brilliant. The fancy ad campaigns can’t mask the overall lackluster baloney that is this lager. Cheers!
