“INBEV strikes again!”

Written on: 22/11/2014 by Emmap271 (1 review written)

First they finished the destruction of Budweiser that AB started by dilution and now Stella. Local draft product tastes pretty good but the bottled product is pretty much water. There must be be a water cut after kegs are filled! Was Gruber their consultant ? Miller Lite is now a better tasting beer that Stella or Bud ! Good rule of thumb...if it's an INBEV product keep shopping!… Read Full Review

“Weaker & weaker.”

Written on: 07/05/2014 by peckypots (1 review written)

Having been a taste tester for many years at a major brewery all I can say is that if the Head brewer and his staff at the Stella brewery think it tastes as it did before the drop in o.g. then I think their taste buds need overhauling, or does profit come first rather than the customer. A really fine lager has been reduced to a run of the mill typically British brewed drink, gassy, tangy, with no real depth. R.I.P. original Stella Artois,sadly missed by all… Read Full Review

I have not bothered to drink stella for over a yr because the taste was totally different from previous times. Decided to try again for watching the rugby wales v scotland why oh why did i bother its still got that horrible tang to it I should have known better when I saw it in asda for £3 for a 4 pack perhaps its noit selling due to the taste and this is supposed to be a premium lager total joke. Anyway back to drinking a real true nice tasting lager its called warsteiner its brill. Stella… Read Full Review

“The heritage of this former premium lager has been ruined”

Written on: 18/09/2013

Since INBEV started reducing alcohol content in its premium beers, I've had to look elsewhere for the taste that I enjoy from a premium strength lager. I can remember stella being 5.4% at one point and now it's 4.8%. It no longer tastes like stella and is more like generic , tasteless UK lagers. In fact it's vile. … Read Full Review

“Very disappointing taste now”

Written on: 02/06/2013 by superseven707 (2 reviews written)

After seeing two strength reductions from 5.2% to 5% and 4.8% last year Stella Artois is now a pale imitation of its former self. It has lost its distinctive taste and smell and will eventually lose market share as people realise they are being ripped off as it's even more expensive despite the reduction in strength. I now go to Aldi's or Lidls and get their genuine German lagers and pay much less for more taste and a strength of 5% or more. Inbev you deserve to lose money now for trying to… Read Full Review

“Was the best! Now just a very bland beer!”

Written on: 11/04/2013 by PeterJSav (1 review written)

I used to be a regular Stella drinker until a couple of years ago the brewers changed this most refreshingly enjoyable beer to one that resembles the likes of Fosters or Carlsberg. Over the last few years I've been trying out alternatives as I just won't drink Stella in its present form. In the end, I settled on San Miguel. Now, don't get me wrong this is a very nice drop of beer, especially when enjoyed on Summer evenings. But, I really miss the unique taste and flavor of the 5.2% Stella. I… Read Full Review

“a cheaper in quality beer”

Written on: 01/03/2013

I bought a 12-pack (US) of Stella last night. I drink a beer or two with a meal sometimes. First thing, I noticed there was no head when I poured and then it was flat. I drank it down like water, because there was no taste and to my eye, the color was lighter. I wonder if the marketing strategy is to introduce you to the good stuff and then switch to this swill. I will go back to drinking wine with my meals. I know there is good beer out there but once it becomes popular and they have to brew… Read Full Review

“good beers”

Written on: 07/02/2013 by PinoyM (5 reviews written)

Perfect among beers that don't have a lot of taste. Most of the cheaper beers in this category have something fake or nasty about them, but Stella goes down easy, way too easy in fact -- I've gotten drunker off Stella than any other beer. Somewhat expensive when you compare it to the mass domestics in the store, but the price difference in bars is relatively smaller -- maybe a $5 beer when a domestic is $4… Read Full Review

“A sure way to lose business”

Written on: 22/01/2013

By reducing the strength again to 4.8% in the UK Stella is now a poor imitation of what was a quality European lager. Some of us would rather pay more and buy a lager we like. Stella will lose out to other brands and to real ales which maintain their strength and full bodied taste. I think there may be a customer backlash in a similar way to those who gave up buying Gordon's gin when they weakened that brand whilst others maintained the original strength. Those of us in the south east should… Read Full Review

Agreed! Can you still buy the 5.2% Stella in Belgium?

For a while now i have been wondering what was wrong with one of the best lagers which i have drunk for over 20 yrs well only just found out they have reduced the alcohol content down to 4.8 and have to say no more for me as you are paying a premium price without getting premium lager so goodbye old friend its been nice knowing you but will now look at other proper lagers to drink. why oh why do we put up with this. perhaps its time to start shopping in France again then the govt will have… Read Full Review

“In the UK, this lager has been destroyed!!!”

Written on: 30/12/2012 by Lager_Lover (1 review written)

Stella Artois has always been an acquired taste. However, love it or loathe it Stella had an aftertaste that was unique. A classic after work on a Friday lager that could leave you relaxed and refreshed yet drink too much and you could ruin your evening! A great, great lager nonetheless, so long as you were careful! Unfortunately, since InBev's UK tax avoidance policy to reduce the volume from 5.2% to 5% it has tasted like watered down stella, yet you pay the same price. Another reduction… Read Full Review

I miss the good 5.2% stuff so much I'm prepared to buy from overseas. Do you know if they still sell the good stuff in other countries.

What have they done! All us wife beaters will have to turn to San Miguel. Stella used to be one of the best but it'll never see the inside of my fridge again. I'd now struggle to tell the difference between it and Carlsberg or a pint of p_I_ss. Never buy ever, Stella. Never buy ever Stella… Read Full Review

“What happened to Stella?”

Written on: 10/05/2012 by Toolm8kr (1 review written)

I have been drinking Stella religiously for ten years. I don't know what happened but for the last few months it has deteriorated into a complete waste. First their cans turned cheap. When they made this new "chalice can", all the tabs pulled off and didn't open the can. Every can was all wrinkled and mis shapen. They havent much better since either They took away the nice embossing they used to have on the can too. It used to be a classy can. Now it's just like a cheap, thin, foil like… Read Full Review

Pcoops's Response to Toolm8kr's Review

Written on: 05/09/2012

Hi, I agree. I have drunk Stella for around 15 years and never had a problem with it. Having done a lot of experimentation with food I stuck with Stella because of it's purity. Over the last 6 months the quality has plummeted. Not a great shock with huge companies wanting more profit for less quality hiding behind a "quality" brand. I don't know for sure but I strongly suspect they are using genetically modified grain which, for me, is deadly. I can drink the stuff, it never makes me violent, or angry (that for me is a "how you are" thing, alcohol just magnifies how you are feeling) instead now I feel "dull" inside the next day and when drinking it I don't get that merry feeling I used to get. I always knew exactly where I was with Stella when drinking it, it was an honest beer which you could measure how p*ssed you could get. Now the more I drink the worse I fel without the euphoria! I have tried it in every type of tin and bottle, no different. I used to say that for some reason the 500ml cans were the worst and stopped buying them, now it is all of it. All I have to do now is find a new gem!

“fake artois!”

Written on: 02/04/2012 by richardcllewellyn (1 review written)

Just how the makers of " stella artois " have the nerve to print belgiums original on the can these days is a mystery to me. first of all, it is now brewed in the uk and tastes nothing like the original,and the alchohol content has now been reduced for the second time. shame on them, they have ruined on of the great beers, in the pursuit of higher profit. I wouldnt use it to flush the toilet now,and pray that all lovers of good beer will refuse to buy this abomination labeled"belgiums original"… Read Full Review

over the recent past I have noticed the gradual watering down of my once favourite tipple.The latest drop I noticed this week is a reduction to 4.8 % by volume from 5%.If this had happened in the days of the Conners (beer testers)Stella and co would now be in the stocks.Why do very few people seem to have noticed what is happening?

“I am not fan of lagers however when it comes to Stela...”

Written on: 28/02/2011 by binio (53 reviews written)

I am not fan of lagers however when it comes to Stela I drink it quite often as this is served in my local pub.
It has nice light colour and it can be served from bottle or jug. When it come to taste I prefer it very cold. This beer is very refreshing and easy drink, makes good compliment to variety of dishes. It misses however on being hopy so reminds about all wheat beers from Germany. having 6.0Vol the beer represents great value for money. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who… Read Full Review
