UPDATED: MAR 14, 2006 Bottled. Pale lager with foaming head. Strong lacing. When I’m in the mood for a few lagers, this is one of my top choices. It has the right blend of hops and malts. I find this leans on the sweet side with a decent hop presence. Good alcohol content! Refeshing... DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2006

"Belgium’s Original Beer"? I can certainly see why they decided to try other brew recipes, then. Well, it’s not bad.... let me rephrase that; it’s not terrible. But it’s certainly not the best I’ve had. Pours transparent hay hue into the glass, with a decent head. It smells of earth, hops and slight skunk. Funny, some lavender mixes in as the beer warms. These aromas transfer directly into the mouth, as the malt is hidden somewhere within the hops on the front end of the pull, and disappear completely into a mild peppery hop finish. It goes down well enough, and certainly would quench the palate, but I’m for certain there are a lot better beers that will do the same trick, but are much more enjoyable. Nothing special here, sorry. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Bottle. Light golden clear pour with a little head. A slight grassy aroma. Had a smooth malty flavor. Had quite a few and enjoyed them all. 96beerCD (5) - USA - MAR 6, 2006 does not count
I was expecting alot more from this beer. I had heard it talked about as if it were some great beer but to me it tasted like Bud Light. Definetely not worth the extra cost.

Poured golden amber in color with white head. Sweet malt aroma. Full flavore ale with bitter malt finish. cowboy7096 (64) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2006
a local resurant had this as a draft, and it really wasn’t that bad. aroma.. wasn’t special, the appearance was a perfect yellow amber beer color, the falvor is kind of hard to explain. It’s like a pale lager with a slight kick. A lot better than what most places have to offer (altleast ot the lower end of the scale). I would pick this beer over most any places that bad just basics. lilsumsum (16) - Chicago (S. Side), Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2006
i found this too be horrible, bottled at a friends house, i had it out of the bottle but i don’t think that would make much of a difference with this, i’ve heard alot about this being good, and well, it’s not. drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2006
On tap at Morgan’s Chicago. Pale yellow body with a medium white head - this looks like any Pale Lager. Aroma wasn’t much. Flavor was decent, I didn’t detect any of the skunkiness endemic to many lagers. One of the better lagers I’ve tasted. smcd (366) - USA - FEB 26, 2006
I admit it. I like Stella Artois. There is almost nothing better on a hot, muggy New York day than to be greeted with a proper glass of ice-cold Stella. Beautiful clear gold.
