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.

Wife beater. Nuff said. Same old bog standard bulk brewed lager. Why this has become the British Lager of choice is intresting - the advertising campaign of expesive reasurence tapped into the upwardly aspirational attitueds of working-class drinkers of the late 80’s ant the same time as they shifted from the ’lower-class’, older image bitter to the ’younger’ larger beers. Stella has tried to repossition itself of late as a Belgian ’craft’ beer - the artois Bock brand brewed for the UK market, the new stemed branded glass, and 1950’s style ads - because in a survay Stella charted twice: at No1 as Stella Artois and at No7 as Wife Beater. Here endeth the leason.

almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - APR 18, 2007
in bottle, 330 ml., An aroma hoppy, but with a fund of flour, and something of vinegar. Golden pale color, very frothy. It is very gaseous, and with a thin body. Has a bitter flavor in palate, but ultimately it is a little a vinegar. In general, I can say that it is something better than the rest of the Chilean lager.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2007
Aroma of light crispness, some light malt, faint faint belgian golden smell? A pale gold color with a head that goes away right away. Flavor is crisp and refreshing. I got a little spiciness, but that might just have been skunkiness from the green bottle. Not bad, but not superior. Better than MBC

Ok first bone to pick. It is advertised as ’reassuringly expensive’ yet wholesales to pubs for about 45p. Go Figure. At least it has a bit more going on in it than bud! Very strong irony almost sulphery theme running through it. If I had to drink a mass produced lager it would probably be this one....

Light crisp lager, faint citrus notes. Not much spicing to the yeast, so it doesn’t hold much belgian character, and lacks anything that gives it much character.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2007
12 oz bottle pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is very grainy. Hay some malt, but not skunked. Lightly malted flavors a little bit of fruit but a lot of grain. All i’m tasting is old grain as i continue. no more of this.

This beer is light, light, light. Still better then the mass marketed domestic crap. But not by much. There is a little bit of bite that adds to the flavor but that is about all that is good about this beer. NEXT!

Grainy and sweet. A good amount of sourness. Balanced by a fair amounf of hops. Not an enticing, enjoyable hop character though. Full body; much fuller than other pale lagers. Decent beer for the style. Far better and more complex than the average, but still not actually a beer I like.
