Stella Artois

Brewed by InBev Belgium Style: Pale Lager Leuven, Belgium

Stella Artois, a pilsner beer of 5.2% ABV., is one of the world’s best-selling beers as part of the Anheuser-Busch InBev group, and is enjoyed in more than 80 countries.

Stella Artois is brewed in Belgium (in the plants at Leuven and Jupille). The company has tax records that exist from 1366 on-wards when it was Leuven’s Den Horen Brewery but when Sebastien Artois became master brewer he gave his name to the brewery, becoming Stella Artois in the 1717. Stella after the Latin for “star.”, when it was first brewed as a Christmas drink.

Its full, characteristic flavour and high quality is assured through a superior brewing process and by using the finest ingredients available, advertised as containing “only 4 ingredients: Hops, Malted Barley, Maize and Water”.

Review: Can of Stella Artois Pilsner Beer 5.2%ABV

Stella Artois is a nice clean and easy to drink beer, perfect to bring along for a party since its a beer that everyone can drink and enjoy.

The appearance was perfectly clear of a nice golden colour, with a good sized white head and some decent lacing. It certainly looks the part.

The aroma was nice and sweet but faint, smelling of a malty and hoppy smell.

Stella Artois had a nice crisp and refreshing taste to it which I found very easy to drink, was clean tasting with no real offensive flavours. It is a very sweet grainy beer yet smooth enough to enjoy. A great session beer with your mates, light and very drinkable, an absolutely beautiful Belgian lager beer.
