“Worst tasting beer ever!”

Written on: 02/05/2019 by ShyannO'Connor38 (1 review written)

I'm sorry Stella Artois, but this is the worst beer I have ever tasted. I poured the entire 6 pack down the drain. Just terrible, really! It also has an after taste as if you were given dental numbing medication. I'm not exaggerating, this beer is horrible and definately non-refereshing!! Don't waste your money… Read Full Review

“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

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 (3 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

“Just a run of the mill lager now”

This lager is no better than average in any respect. On a par with carlsberg, fosters, hofmeister and carling. Once it was a great drink now its cheap swill and I avoid it… 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.

“Used to be my favourite beer. Now tastes like p_i_ss”

Written on: 28/05/2012

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
