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.

Upon pouring my 11.2 Fl. Oz. can of Stella Artois I missed over how much the beer looked like apple juice. However, the head formed a modest white foam in my glass that lasted about 35 seconds. Then the head quickly dissipated to form a thin white ring. The bubbles from the carbonation rose with low-medium velocity. Overall, I was much more impressed by the simple, yet elegant artwork of the can.

As for the smell, I could barely detect anything, except perhaps some fading notes of raw dough.

The taste was malt forward, definitely reminding me of apple juice, with mild tartness. Almost simultaneously hops took the stage and balanced decently with fruity flavors. And finishing, the hoppiness closed with a bittersweet after taste.

The feel is quite watery, easily sliding around the mouth, and leaves an astringent trail behind it. The carbonation is on the lower end of medium velocity, and helps to spruce up the wateriness.

Overall, Stella Artois is a decent beer if it was priced in a lower strata. Unlike, other beers that command such a price tag, this beer fell short of truly being a premium beer. It's quality certainly surpasses many macro brew beers, but it should not be priced as high as it is.

I am someone who enjoys all beer including Rolling Rock which is the cheapest in my area. If I had to choose between Stella Artois and Rolling Rock in terms of bang for my buck, Rolling Rock would win.
