Stella Artois

71 / 100

Unfortunately this is the first beer that most Americans associate with Belgium. For shame. That said, it's not terrible. If you live in Los Angeles, like I do, it's often the best option places will have. So with these caveats, I end up drinking a bit more of it than I would truly want.

It is very light in color: golden straw with a good deal of carbonation. It's very light in basically all areas: aroma, taste, body and appearance. I guess that's why Americans like it so. With the American macros, this stands a level above, as it does have some flavor qualities. Its aroma is grainy with a slight sweetness. Much true too for the taste. The water taste is particularly Belgian, but that's about it. It's drinkable, but nothing I would crave.
