Advantages: refreshing, crisp taste, premium quality
I know drinking beer is not a girly thing but I have to confess that I prefer beer to any other alcohols. It is refreshing and due to the low alcohol content you can drink a glass or two without becoming anti-social.
Stella Artois is a premium quality lager first brewed in Leuven, Belgium anno 1366. The expertise can be seen and felt whenever you drink a Stella. The lager had originally 5.2% alcohol content which was reduced to 5% in the UK and some other countries. It is available in 4% version and NA (0.5% alcohol content!) in most of the supermarkets and pubs.
I am sure you remember some Stella ads from the TV, they can't highlight enough how to pour your beer for the perfect result. I prefer drinking it from glass as I love to see its wonderful golden colour and the condensed drops on my glass. Occasionally I drink it from the bottle as well but I don't like to drink it from can as it has a metallic taste.
You have to love beer in general to appreciate the crisp light taste of a Stella Artois. Some gourmet consumers may say it is nothing special about it, it is smooth and somewhere in the middle with no characteristic note. This may be true but this average taste suits loads of people and makes this brand popular. I like that it has no bitter or sour aftertaste like some other beers. For me a plus bonus is the headache free hangover... I don't intend to share more info on it as I am not proud of it, just loved Stella a lot...
I don't want to write an exact price for the beer as it changes all the time. It is quite often on offer so it is worth shopping around or if you can resist to it eve stocking up when on offer. I think Stella Artois is priced in the top middle of the lager category. The price obviously represents the premium quality ingredients and the brand image.
Stella Artois is probably my first choice of lager but Leffe (another Belgian beer) is closely behind it. If you like beer in general maybe you'll like Stella Artois too.
A bottle of 284 ml contains 1.4 UK units of alcohol. Be responsible!
Summary: Drinking a beer from time to time has loads of health benefits just don't forget to stop drinking...
