Reviewed from a 22oz bottle.

Went to Fred Meyers and couldn't decide what to buy... hey a Stella Artois - haven't had one of those in quite awhile and at $2.50/bomber my wallet agreed with the choice. This was poured into a snifter.

A> Nice appearance for a lager, decent head with less than spectacular retention. Golden hue, strikingly clear, little streams of bubbles are present in several locations of the glass. Nothing memorable but really it's a pretty nice looking beer.

S> Sweet grain, skunky funk, fresh cut grass, smells like a euro lager.

T> Not much different than the smell, sweet grain, the classic euro skunk, very herbal/spicy hop profile, a little bit of "fruit" from the yeast. Nothing mind blowing but everything is tight and solid, also quite delicious.

M> Light and refreshing, which could be a nice way to say a bit watery but it's a lager. Nice carbonation. This beer just feels nice in my mouth. Good but not great for the style.

O> It's hard to say anything bad about Stella Artois, however I don't have anything really great to say about it either. To me, Stella is a solid choice for a euro lager. There are better out there but there are also WAY WAY WAY worse lagers. This blows American macros out of the water. What this beer lacks in character it makes up for by being easy to drink and having a pleasant flavor that could be enjoyed and even appreciated by most. This is a beer I won't buy very often, but if it was offered to me at a gathering I'd be very pleased. Infact I'd probably every compliment the host on their excellent choice of beer.
