I picked this up around Christmas of 2013 at the HEB in McAllen, Texas, there was nothing special to it, and it is one of the pourest beers from Belgium. It poured golden, was cloudy, with a soapy head, and lots of carbonation. It tasted like any other massed pale ale, with a watery taste, little edge, low alcohol content, and not filling.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type: 500 ml can

Despite this being a Belgian beer, it clearly steers away from the taste/style that the region is known for.

A: Pours an extremely pale, piss colour that is akin to Budweiser. 2 finger head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lots of lacing on the glass

S- Nothing special here, that's for sure. Notes of corn and fruit shine through in this one.

T- Opens with a near citrus taste that quickly turns in to a grainy explosion. Slight Hop near the end with a medium dry finish.

M- This beer is very refreshing and would go great on a hot summer day. Average carbonation.

O- IMO, Stella serves a similar purpose to Corona and might benefit from a lime. While I say that, I should mention that this is definitely a superior beer to Corona and I'm not knocking either beer in any way. Stella Artois is by no means the best beer I have ever had, but it is pretty good nontheless.

Stella is a highly carbonated golden yellow beer with an oddly metallic taste. It has a champagne-like appearance at times. I find it acceptable in the same circumstances as other pale lagers, however it is not something I prefer by any means. While leagues ahead of domestic counterparts, I feel that Stella Artois is a Budweiser or Corona of Europe. If you're expecting complexity, this is not a good beer for you- it is simple, thin, crisp, and sparkly.

A very full body and rich beer overall. The appearance of it is a light yellow color with the smell being a sweet earthy and almost faint smell. The taste is crisp and refreshing for a beer and overall very tasty. Mostly a mans beer but a good beer overall none the less. I would for sure buy this at a bar or in store even

A great beer. Drink it often when available. Have found it on tap and it really is up there with some of the premium beers. Love Stella and know many fans of it. No over powering tastes of any type. Just a rich beer. There are a few better full body beers in my opinion but not many. Would never turn down a Stella. Now I just have to go out and find a locale that has their light version so I can try it, hopefully enjoy it and possibly unseat my Miller Lite as my favorite light beer. Hard to find but I am persistent.
Enjoy Stella!

Report me a review, is a beer you ask me? No not really. This is what I drink for the beach. Not too few or out of reach. This is better than anything here in Costa (aside a rare dark), this includes the locales, hermano. The visual is clear regardless the tint. There is nothing more to this stint. Taste and mouthfeel out beat any male prostitute, looks better than my piss. I finalize this retort.

This was my go-to beer before I discovered anything besides this the american standards. The fun gold trimmmed glass they served it in made me feel special and looking back, that was all pretensious. Hind sight is 20/20

It's good enough for a 20 something who doesn't care about flavors, pairing with food and is drinking something besides the other american standards.

The appearance is honey and light

The smell is sweet. earty, faint.

The taste is a little on the bland side of things, knowing what I know now- I don't know if I would order this beer. But back when I knew everything - this beer was great.

The mouthfeel is carbonation overload, sweet, simple.

The overall - this beer is drinkable, maybe not likeable, but it's drinkable.

Pretty descent beer, pretty smooth with a light white head to it. The taste is probably slightly average, but then in finishes sweet and leaves you feeling satisfied. I can see girls being attracted to this kind of beer. It starts out slightly too bitter but then gets better. Its a good beer when its around cheap beers because they make this beer taste great compared to them.

Belgian in origin, but not at all representative of the region's preferred/famous style, this pale golden lager with a thick lace does manage to stand out among the plethora of mainstream lagers out there. The scent is almost floral - a definite spicy, hoppy sharpness and presence. The taste follows this, with more complexity and depth than similar brews. Not half bad, and a solid step in-between mainstream and craft beer.

The taste is probably slightly under average, but then in finishes sweet and leaves you feeling satisfied. It's supposedly a girly beer, but I don't think many girls would appreciate it. It starts out slightly too bitter but then gets better. It's a good lightly above average beer when nothing interesting is around.

Served from tap into a Weizen glass. Pours a golden yellow with one finger white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of wheat and citrus. The flavor was of citrus and slight malt. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was a very refreshing brew. Not my favorite brew I've had, but definitely not the worst. This is the one I go with for a lighter brew when the other options are not good.

This is an amazing pale lager from Europe. This is a great beer if you are a fan of European style lagers. It is really light in color and it is smooth. A good summer beer. The only down side to the beer is it' s scent because it smells a little burnt. Aside from the smell it is a nice refreshing pale lager.

If you're looking for a light lager, this is it! This is definitely my favorite beer - although I have recently getting into beer tasting. Love how foamy it is (and it lasts too!) and the flavor is just right! It's not too strong like dark beers thankfully (although I like that at times), and it has an awesome drinkability.

I understand it seems a lot of people in this website like strong heavy beers, so if that's the case I guess this is not it for you, but to me this beer is perfect!

Although light and airy this beer has a very bad after taste to it. the appearance of it is good, if poured correctly the head usually is about 1/2 and inch thick smell is very desireable but i personlly can not sit and enjoy this beer like i would with other ones of its style

It's sort of a "beginner's beer". If somebody is knew to drinking and they're not quite into the taste, this one goes down easily, it's light and you can drink a few bottles and not feel completely bloated, making it a good experience...which is perhaps why so many people latch onto it rather than moving onto more delicious brews.

Start here...but move on, kids.

Apearance - Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a 1.5 finger white head with low staying power.

Nose- Sweet malt with a hint of herbal, spicy hops. Not skunky.

Palate- Sweet light malt with some mild hop bitterness in the middle. Finishes sweet.

Mouthfeel- light bodied, on the lower side of carbonation.

Drinkability- Easy going, but pretty nondiscript.

Stella is quite possibly the worst beer I've ever had. It looks fine, has a mediocre nose, and the mouthfeel is nothing to write complaints about. The taste, however, is where this brew fails miserably. Approaching the average aspects of its presentation otherwise (appearance, nose), one would expect something smooth with little to write home about. Frankly, I expected this beer to be drinkable. The flavor is so off it makes me wonder what they used to brew it, it couldn't have been barley for I can't find a hint of those flavors. The hops are no where to be seen, tasted, or smelled. This brew fails with flying colours.

Good beer. Nice yellow color. Short head. Non intrusive. Goes well with less savory meals. Cheeses, garlic, etc. Prefer it with a meal more than drinking alone. Not usually a beer to pull out for a visit.

Prefer on tap instead of bottle.

Has a stinky smell to it that can be off putting.

A little skunky smell. Color is pale yellow with a small one-finger head. Loads of bubbles. Taste is average, but a little different than what I expected. It's got an almost "buttery" flavor with hints of pepper with some lemon zest. Beer is better on tap than in a bottle.

drank a lot of this when I was working in EMEA....not sure why!

A - lite straw, decent 1 finger head a bit of lacing

S - mild grass/malt unremarkable really

T - I guess it was much better on tap at the hotel I regularly stayed at in paris (I think it was paris, may have been the hilton at the ariport at heathrow), lite lager taste, again unremarkable

M - mild carbonation, not bad

D - we drank this stuff like water years ago, guess it's an ok rep for the style but it won't end up in my cart again

This beer pours a pale yellow colour with an average one finger fluffy head that fades slowly with hardly any lacing,it smells quite funky really like off watery hops,it has a below average mouthfeel and just tastes like water,malty hops nothing really too it here,and its funny too cos in australia this is considered as a big euro beer which usually goes for $60 a carton or more so yeah i definately cant see what all the fuss is about with it definately not for me.
