Light skunky unpleasant flavor..tastes cheap, watery, corn and grass; overpriced too. Heineken is significantly better if you want a euro lager. Hell, I'd take a budweiser or a moosehead over this stuff any day.. Two thumbs down.

Have I really never rated this beer before, wow!, I must have drunk it 1,000s of times over 3 decades.
L- Darker straw, pours with thin white head that swiftly clears to lacing.
S- Indistinct, good or bad, I honesly get zero from this. Unusual!
T- That of industrial mediocrity I suspect. Little distinguishable into a dry hoppy finish.
M- Dry, watery, that's it. Perhaps the alcohol makes some presence known on the tongue right at the end.
O- This beer is just so blah. Not actively bad nor offensive, just nothingy especially compared to fashionable modern brews that seem to be packed with hops/fruits/etc flavours. This would be an easy inoffensive inexpensive session beer, maybe that's the intention. - Bought in a 568ml/UK-pint can from Tesco, London. From past experience I know that you can find Belgian brewed Stella in London, often in smaller off-licenses where [cough cough] the stock has come over from the continent as duty free or similar. The point being, the Belgian brew is FAR better and more interesting that this UK brewed version.

On tap poured into a Stella glass. Glass is really cool.

L---Clear, light golden color. Thick, bright white head that faded quickly and didn't leave much lacing.

S---Sweet. Grains and grassiness.

T---Fairly unflavorful. I expect more from a Belgian beer, even a pale lager. Some grains and a little sweetness.

F---Refreshing and light. Feels like a better BMC product.

O---Pretty disappointing for a Belgian product. Pretty good if you're comparing it to Budweiser.

Poured from 11.2 oz can. Translucent, straw light-yellow color. Off-white foam, light carbonation, yields a thin, patchy head after settling. Smells like your typical adjunct lager. Crackers and something like a sweet biscuit. Taste isn't bad though - just not much to talk about. It's a beer plain and simple. Mouthfeel is nice & drinkable. I like Stella as a refreshing lager for hot days.

Stella is beauty, she is an elegant woman. Deserving of a true Gentleman. Stella Artois... the Gentleman’s beer.
