This was certainly the least of the beers I had while in Belgium. I heard it refered to as the "wife beaters beer" while I was there. I wish our mainstream beers tasted like this though. Poor as a belgium beer; but I would probably drink it if it was a local.

Mild, slightly sweet and slightly sour beer. A hint of hops but pretty bland overall. Smooth, drinkable, but not distinctive or bold in any way.

Theres a Stella billboard in Philadelphia that says "Quality has its price." This statement is true. But it has nothing to do with Stella Artois. Inferior to water in the following categories: colour, taste, and flavour. Its rather popular with the recently graduated crowd, and Ive tried it on a couple of occasions, and never finished a bottle. Somehow watery and metallic at the same time. If I had a choice between drinking Stella and nothing, Id choose nothing. And I dont mean "drinking nothing" I mean in the grand contest of drinking stella vs. nonexistence, Id choose nonexistence.

nice golden color, bit of a skunky smell, almost no lacing. med-light carbonation. Flavor is mostly skunky malt and very little hops. notes of sweaty sox and corn. OK, I trashed it a bit, its still drinkable tho. Pretty sure I will not pay for it again tho.

In the UK, there are 2 types of Stella Artois you can buy. 1.Real Stella brewed in Belgium.(You can buy this version from odd off licence). 2.UK replica version sold in major UK supermarkets. 1. This is rather nice and refreshing Belgian lager. Very pale golden colour, sweet, yet hint of hop and dry finish. 2. UK replica version tastes awful, has nasty metallic aftertaste.

Skunky pilsner taste. In 1926, Stella Artois was launched initially as a seasonal beer especially for the Christmas holiday market. Watered down taste. Not great. They support Cannes and Sundance music festivals. Crips, able to drink a lot.

One of the better mainstream pilseners. Head is huge, and nice and silky. Has a nice palalte. Still, nothing too special

Richer aroma than most pale lagers, not too skunky at all. Lokks as good as pale lager gets, with right amount of bubbles and a nice didhsoap head. Very agreeable flavor, certainly more Belgian than Dutch. I drink it when its available.

This beer is... overrated. The fact it comes from Belgium doesnt mean its great. Its even not good. Its just bad but not so much. I simply have shivers when I think about drinking such beer. There are much better lagers. And with no doubt - muuuuch better Belgian beers
