I guess this is europe’s budweiser. Its definately better than our cheap crap beer, but its still cheap crap beer in the end. Clean, light, and refreshing... like pbr but without the wierd off putting sweetness. Being someone on a low budget, I would buy this alot if it were priced the same as bud etc, but since it is often sold for the same price as craft beer there is really no reason to ever buy it.
Clear pale yellow pour with a white head and very good retention. Decent lacing. Soft mouthfeel. Has the usual European skunky smell. Taste is similar. Helles-like. I could see getting used to it after a few but why would you want to? ferjho224 (31) - MEXICO - DEC 2, 2017
Good carbonation, abundant head with really good retention, corn and paper flavor. zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2017
4.8% can from Morrisons, Birtley, Gateshead. Very pale straw coloured with a grassy, toffee, lemon and herbal flavour followed by gentle bitter-sweet amd malty notes on the finish. Not bad. Hopper8 (250) - Holland, Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2017 This beer is just plainly drinkable. There is not a single thing exciting about it, but I guess there is also nothing disappointing, so cool. p0urmeac0ld0ne (310) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - NOV 27, 2017
Cans, bottles, draught back home in the UK…. all forever ruined since the drop on ABV. This “for the British market” shite is now just like any other mass-marketed pish available on this beautiful island of ours.

Nov ‘17 Edit: Revising my review to include a draught glass of Belgian domestic, 5.2% ABV Stella Artois. Unsurprisingly, this had a much cleaner taste than the chemical brew of the British variety. It is a clean, pale lager with a lasting fluffy head. A pleasure to drink but would be unlikely of me to search this out.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Straw yellow in colour. Malty aroma . Metallic commercial taste but not half bad danjs5 (327) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2017
Revival trial tasting. Light earthy malty taste. Crisp and clean. Quite nice when super cold. Nowhere near as bad as I remembered. mabuzzer (921) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2017
Two half pint bottles, poured into a pint glass. Clear golden with a very thin, soapy looking white head. Pungent grassy aroma, flavour is corn sweetness, grass and a very bitter hop finish. superspak (6082) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2017
It's a long time since I've drunk Stella, thought I'd give some party leftovers a try. About as poor as I'd expected.
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 6/4/2018. Pours crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Bit of skunky notes in the aromas that dissipated as it sat in the glass. Okay aromas of pale malt and minimal hop notes; with poor strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery feeling. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nicely flavorful and clean pils malt/grain presence with decent hop balance. An enjoyable offering.
