Stella Artois

Belgium produces some world class beers and one of the known brand exported from that country is Stella Artois

Stella Artois was first brewed in Leuven, Belgium in 1926 as a Christmas brew. Stella stands for "Star" in Latin.

Stella Artois in this region has a higher alcohol content at 5.2%. By the look, it has a shelf life of 1 year after it has been brewed.

It only mentioned on the bottle that the sole ingredient which goes to make this beer is malted barley. It's rather vague as I would like to know more in details what really goes into making this beer.

The details are in multi language and it is hard to pin point exactly where this beer actually been brewed for this region. I doubt it is brewed in Belgium (even though it said "Imported from Belgium" at the top of the bottle).

Stella Artois tastes like a beer. It is bitter but lack of the smoothness I am looking for in a beer.

Technically, Stella Artois is a lager. However it happens to be my fav drink in pubs too. Strange they only mentioned its ingredient being malted barley only. The ones sold in the UK are made from hops, malted barley, shitloads of sugar and of course, water. Yummy! I spy a few whiskey glases on the table;. I hope they werent used for drinking beers/lagers. =)
