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.

PlinyHarris (28) - - NOV 18, 2012
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.

Kosmokrator (630) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2015
Lager bionda e banalotta, ma discretamente piacevole. Di gusto delicato, non eccessivamente amaro nč appiccicoso, puň dissetare in una giornata soleggiata.

GenDV138 (4093) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Two 11.2 oz bottles at a friend’s house. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of corn and wheat. Tastes of corn, wheat, malt, a little herb. Light body with a dry finish. Not something I’d drink by itself but was fine with a homemade Korean dinner and Cards Against Humanity.

The aroma is a little skunky, but other than that the taste was fairly good. a little hops, slightly bittersweet, easy to drink.

On tap. Pours pale yellow with tall light head. Aroma is hoppy, vegetal and lemony. Flavor is herbal, quite bitter, too sour, citrus, hops, very light malt. Body is medium-light. I just don’t like this style of beers...

HopTsing (483) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2015
From the bottle pours a pale golden brew with a thin white head. Subtle, well balanced aromas and taste of malt and hops.

Bottle. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this. Golden with a thin white head. Smells a little rubbery plus grain. Thin flavor a little watery.

My favourite pils beer! Drink this one all the time. The only thing that’s allways in my fridge. Good when you’re thirsty, easy drinkable and so smooth! Mijn thuis is waar mijn stella staat!

Bierdimpfe (45) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
Brilliant straw color. Rich thick extra foamy 2 finger white head, lasting 2 - 3 minutes and sticking on the glass in a unique way. Faint aromas and flavors of citrus, corn, slightly skunky with some floral spices. Very faint taste but well balanced in sweetness and bitterness with a little sugary feel. Light slick body with faint carbonation but a prickly finish. Short and faint finish on the bitter side. Overall : Too delicate, missing some freshness and lots of flavors, I find this beer a little off. In comparison, the Heineken is better in my opinion.

Tried it several times because I’m somehow attracted to the artwork, but was always a bit disappointed. This is just too flat in taste, even for a Pale Lager.
