Stella Artois

This is a Belgian lager, the first one I’ve seen so I thought I’d give it a try.

Beer temp. 44.6 F (7.0 C). Clear light gold color with a fair white head. Mild hop aroma with maybe a touch of hay to it. Mild malts with not much body but a surprisingly rich mouth feel. Although the head faded quickly there is a nice lacing on the sides of the glass. The hops are fairly sharp but don’t last overly long and have a lemony taste.

Repeatability, yes. I could do several more. It’s worth it if for nothing else than the mouth feel.

Stella Artois Rating: 5 out of 10 (?)

    I’d agree on the mid-range score. It’s a nice beer that’s gaining in popularity among the young and upwardly mobile crowd (I think it’s the cool name) but there are any number of lagers out there that beat it for taste and overall experience.
