Sunday Night Suds - Stella Artois Lager

This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Stella Artois Lager.

This is one of those omnipresent beers, a brew which is on the menu in the finer restaurants. It could be due to the fancy packaging (my slightly askew picture does not show the fancy top of the bottle) or possibly the name, but leaving aside the presence on the menu in the fancy restaurants, this beer is a macrolager through and through.

The beer pours a deep yellow (a bit like the old Crayola "maize") color with nearly no lacing and some carbonation. The first taste is straight lager with little malt or hops. Successive swallows only reinforce the lack of bite or bitter edge to the beer. Instead there is the general non-offensive, euro lager flavor (think Heineken with slightly more character).

This beer is a good starter lager for someone who wants to try beer but does not really want hops, bitters or beer flavor. Still, it goes done well after a long hot day at work (not an intentional Shawshank reference).

Stella Artois is certified kosher by the London based Kosher Federation for those bottles produced in the Leuven plant.
