I love this beer. It's been my favorite since I started drinking and just feels better than anything else.

The look of Stella was gold. The smell was of oak and a refreshing smell. The taste was light and very smooth. I would definitely recommend as I enjoyed it.

this one is great, the grain is smouth and the hops roll in niceley, this is what a lager is suposta taste like. this pours a nice golden color with a big head that quickley disapers. this is the pinical of what green glass skunkey beer can be. this one always is in my beer rotation. try two or three you wont be disapointed.

Something about the aroma of this beer puts me in mind of wine. That's the first thing that I love about Stella Artois...when that aroma hits your nose.
Light, refreshing taste...a bit more complex than American Macro light lagers. Stella has a pleasant crisp finish with a slight hint of astringency. Pours from the bottle with a nice head that fades very slowly, with nice lacing.
The more I drink this beer, the more I enjoy it. I find it to be a great session beer. It goes great with anything from a steak to a simple salad. Some darker beers are great for having one or two and then, they get to be too much...they're too rich. (Not that that's a bad thing, but it's like eating cheesecake - a little goes a long way). With Stella, you can keep on drinking, and your palate never tires of the crisp refreshing taste.
Note, though, that it is a full 5% ABV. When I say it's a good session beer, still you will find yourself inebriated if you don't pace yourself accordingly. On the other hand, if you have a DD or you're at home...drink on!

This is truly a premium lager. It has a light gold color and pours into a rather nice head that sticks to the glass. The smell is really nice with a rather sweet smell followed by hops. The mouthfeel is good nice though a little lighter that I suspected. The drinkablility is great it goes down super smooth and it is rather refreshing!! I really like this lager!!

a perfect example of a lager style beer. the only thing i don't like about this beer is the price ($8.50 a sixer). this beer could only be improved if it where to be made right in minnesota in a brewpub run by german brewmasters.it has the right color the right mouth feel and smells of hops and grains. very fresh. the flavor is brought out to its peak if you let it slightly warm out of the fridge to about 45 0r 50 degrees.

Look: A nice golden/yellow color. Head dissipates quickly.

Smell: Light and airy. Not much to it.

Taste: sweet, hops, slight citrus, and malty.

Feel: Very smooth and refreshing. Light-bodied, great for a meal or following a porter/stout.

another light, crisp refreshing beer. one thing i hate about stella is the 11 oz bottles, so when you buy a case you spend more for the import and are already two beers light. that rant out of the way, stella is smooth with that hint of burnt after flavor that reminds you it's an import. there's a reason why this is one of the most popular beers in the world - good, smooth-drinking flavor.

If you like a good lager, this looks and tastes exactly like a good lager should. It has the distinct golden aura and smooth taste of many European lagers, but with that added bit of distinction that it has been brewed for over 600 years. This is by far my favorite beer to drink any time, with any fare.

This is my go to beer because most places have it on tap and it's usually the best thing on tap. This is one of the first beers that actually allowed me to start to appreciate beer (along with Heineken). I tend to lean more toward the European beers though, so to each their own.

I would say that Stella and Heineken are both very good entry level beers for people who think they don't like beer. I started with those two just a year or so ago and now I'm learning to appreciate the Gulden Draaks, the Pauwel Kwaks, the EKU 28s, and the Samichlaus type beers. This is why I still like it a lot and it's my go to because most places aren't going to have the previously mentioned beers.

Good smooth taste, with a little dryness to it. A great balanced beer, and not very acidic because it is brewed with Saaz hops. One of my favorite hops out there.
