Origin: Leuven, Belgium
Overall impression: Light sweetness with a pronounced dry hoppy finish
A Stella Artois but without the alcohol? No longer just a dream, mes amis, but now a reality.
Our brewmasters have taken 600 years of Belgian brewing heritage and combined it with our best, all-natural ingredients, to create an alcohol free lager that is bursting with flavour.
With a pronounced hoppy bitterness and a crisp, clean and refreshing finish, but with not even a drop of alcohol and just 60 calories, Stella Artois can now be savoured by everyone.
Medium hop intensity in both floral and bitter notes and some residual sweetness from its malts means Stella Artois has several flavours notes to pair with food. Like most lagers its carbonation can aid it when pairing with fatty, rich and fried foods, as long as the intensity isn’t too high.
Stella Artois can also be paired with salmon, tuna and marbled meat. Its bitterness offers pleasing contrast with sweet reductions and sauces.
HOME-RUN PAIRING: BEER BATTERED FISH AND CHIPS
There are several flavor bridges and complementary elements between Stella Artois and fish and chips. Firstly Stella Artois can actually be used in the cooking stage, with Stella Artois’ carbonation adding a lovely lightness to the batter and also a slight cracker and nutty flavours to the dish.
The beer’s intensity is also just at the right level to stand up against the fried fish without stealing the show or being overwhelmed, whilst the carbonation helps cleanse the palate. The slight floral notes from the hops and residual sweetness from the malts will play nicely alongside the acidity of a squeeze of lemon or a dash of vinegar which often accompanies the fish. Finally, the gentle hop bitterness will offset any sweetness from any complementary mushy peas on the side.
