I’ve had this beer quite a few times when I was younger, years ago, and now sampling it again I was pleasantly surprised by its flavor and crispness. Tried it again on tap at a local restaurant. Pours a nice golden color with some fluffy white head and fades within a minute, leaving some surprisingly nice spotty lingering lacing. Barely a hint of any aroma - maybe a trace of grain and floral hops. Tastes much better than it smells - crisp malt, grain, corn, a little apple sweetness along with the faintest hint of floral hops. Sweetness definitely dominates any bitterness here. Smooth crisp thin mouthfeel, good carbonation. Would drink again if necessary, and if other craft beers weren’t available.

I've known about this beer for a long time but had never tried it. Was at a friends house and offered me a bottle. Nice beer. Taste is smooth and crisp. Great beer when eating at restaurants. Most places have Stella on tap.

It has a distinctive acidity to it similar to Heineken, but it's way softer and easier to drink. It is a refreshing average beer that goes pretty much with everything. I suggest you try the can version, it has a softer taste than the bottled version.

I have had this beer before a few years ago & I do remember it being better than this. It has the characteristics of a Euro Pale Lager, but it is too papery & sharp. I don't see myself wanting to drinking more than 1 bottle of these beers. There is a best by date on the back of the label, so I know that it is fresh. What's the problem then??? If this is what the newly revamped Stella Artois taste like then I am going to have to pass on this one next time around. Go with Heineken & pass on the Stella. Cheers! C

Over-rated pedestrian beer. Too bland for my taste. A more basic Heineken.
