This is the beginning of my beer review.
Manufacturer: Stella Artois Brewery
Sample Bottle Size: 11.2 fl ounces/ 330 mL
Style: Euro Pale Lager
Alcohol: 5.0 %
Cap Type: Twist-Off
Cost: $1.75 (Purchased at grocery store)
Brief History: Has been brewed in Belgium since 1366. In 1926, Stella Artois was initially launched as a seasonal beer and then first sold year around in Canada as a great success. Then, in 1930 Stella Artois exported to the European market in early 1930s. In 1993, InBev opened a fully automated brewery in 1993. Currently, the Stella’s annual production is over a billion liters in volume.
Now let’s get to the beer!
Appearance: Yellow/Gold color with an average amount of head. Quite carbonated as well.
Scent/Smell: Sweet grainy smell with a decent amount of hops. Also had a hint of skunk like smell towards the end.
Taste: Sweet and grainy. Didn’t get the “skunky” taste towards the end, unlike the smell.
Mouthfeel: Light in the body. Medium to high level of carbonation which makes it difficult to chug. Always a good thing.
Drink with (food): White fish, lobster, shrimp, pork, light cheese, lightly spicy food
This isn’t the highest quality beer coming out of Belgium. It’s solid beer when going to a beer after a long day at work. Which I will definitely drink again.
