UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Pours clear light yellow with a white head - just like every pale lager in the world. Aroma is slightly skunky malt with not much of anything going on. Light mouthfeel with lightly fizzy carbonation & lots of it. Initial taste is lightly malted with a touch of husk, then an offputting light skunkiness sneads in. Finish has a touch of spice. By far the most boring Belgium beer I’ve ever had. KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
500 mL can: From what I hear, actual Stella, on tap, in Belgium is a different experence than over here! This is an over-revered product, like Heineken in the can. I mean, taste it: there is nothing pleasant and smooth. It is bitter and fizzy and thin, and that awful finish lasts, leaving a sour taste in your mouth. Better lagers out there for sure.

Stella Artois is a high quality light, golden lager. It has a decent pour with a nice head. One of my favorite import Pilsners. Nice strong taste of hops. undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2006
I just can’t stand the smell of the heinekin style lager aroma anymore. Not sure if its all of the ale’s and stouts I have been drinking lately. This is just too sweet. HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Refreshing beer... nothing fancy as far as flavor goes... ever so slight hop bitterness. Along the line of other European lagers in a green bottle... not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2008 Pours golden with a very thin wispy white head. Aroma of bready lager yeast, clean bitterness, and biscuit. Taste is bready, with sweet toasted malts, industrial lager yeast, and a mild herbal bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin bodied with lively carbonation. Not bad but not enjoyable.

A very smoothe beer. I like the aluminum on the bottle, makes the appearance look fancy. The taste itself isn’t anything out of this world but a very smoothe lager. cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2006
Moderate hoppy aroma. Avg frothy white head. Fair lasing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear yellow body color. Moderate bitter initial flavor. Palate light to medium. Watery texture. scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 This is the best imported lager (I say humbly). Hoppy, refreshing, clear, robust, alcoholic and drinkable. Great with light foods or snacks. Try them with Snap-Pea Crisps. If this beer was more economical, say $10 for a 12 pack I think more people would make a switch to this great mass-market beer. I don’t like the green bottles or the white paper wrap, but the aroma (malt, perfume, floral, licorice) and the bite (bitter and sweet) is simply delicious. There is a reason it is the fastest growing import worldwide. Use the expiration date, because freshness does matter. starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Smells like urine but the color is lighter than you would expect. Thin white head. Pure corn flavour.
