Stella Artois is one of the world’s best-selling beers and is enjoyed in more than 80 countries. Its full, characteristic flavour and high quality is assured through a superior brewing process and by using the finest ingredients available.
The UK version is brewed, filtered and kegged at Samlesbury. Batches are sent to Magor for pasteurising before being canned or bottled.

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.

C’est une bière que j’évite. Elle est aussi inbuvable que de la Budweiser americaine. C’est juste de l’eau du réseau avec des céréales.

Bottle 25cl, @ home. Nothing very particular in this very average pils, the taste is maybe a bit sweeter than Maes or Jupiler. Bof...

Aroma of sweetish malt, corn, hay. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. Boring but relatively inoffensive Lager.

This stuff is probably made out of bourbon barrel aged puke. This beer is awful.

Bottle, always makes a nice looking poor. Good beer if you're at a restaurant with limited selection. I always keep a couple around for friends that are into the craft brew thing.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stella is a very good lager option if you are looking for a simple yet refreshing brew. Very uncomplicated flavors and pretty much straight and to the point. Love drinking a Stella on Saturday mornings watching the EPL. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle, brewed somewhere in Russia. Pours gold with a surprisingly dense white head that lasts for a very long time. Lots of lacing clings to the glass. Has the instantly recognisable Stella aroma of herbiness and yeast. I remember the UK and Belgian brewed versions tasting better.

Blah, only a hair better than coors light, wheat grain water, with real bad orange peel after taste. Only good thing is crystal clarity.

Oginme (54) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Draft: Came pale yellow (straw) colored with white lasting foam. Nice lacing as the glass was emptied. Aroma: mild herbal, floral. Taste: smooth grainy, malty with slight toasty notes giving way to a back end bitterness giving a dry, clean finish. Medium-light on the palate. Enjoyable though not remarkable.

Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a corn and citrus flavor, this is one of the few green bottled Euros that doesn’t have that skunky aroma. Appearance- Has a fairly bright straw yellow color with a thick white head. Taste- The taste is a nice combo of citrus, corn and spices. Palate- A light bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Has a semi dry finish. Overall- One of my favorite Euro Pale Lagers, this is getting quite a bit of notice in the States lately. I prefer this over Heineken by a country mile.
