Stella STRONG? Yes, as in the French/Belgian saying "L' eau c'est fort - ça porte les bateaux." Joris

If Stella is strong, world isn't round any more ;-) As a matter of fact, Belgians only drink Stella when there isn't any beer anymore. And as you know: there's still a lot of beer in Belgium.
The better pilsener in Belgium (same strenght): Maes, Jupiler, Bavik, ...
But real beer lover don't prefer that kind of blonds. Give us a real "trappist" (Orval, West-vleteren, Westmalle, Chimay, Rochefort) or some other delicious good stuff: Hapkin, Duvel, Ciney, ... O, my dear, I can go on for hours and hours. Santé

If Stella is strong, I'm a Dutchman's uncle.
I think Stella Artois it's boring but slightly preferable to Bud, Coors, etc.

I tried it, it doesn't turn me on at all. Belgium does produce some world class beer's, this is not one of them. Hank L.

Eh. IMO, Löwenbräu is only scarcely a step above Stella, and only slightly less duller than dirt. When I lived in Munich, only Hacker-Pschorr fell lower on my preference list amongst the Munich breweries when it came to the Hellesbiere.
Besides, the lion is brewed to a much different style than Stella, the latter of which is ostensibly a pils. The comparison isn't quite 1:1.

Eh, sarcasm's tough in print. Or I was too tired to catch it. Either way.
Well, Löwenbräu is certainly a step above Warsteiner.
Münchener helles is a style that, IMO, really doesn't travel all that well anyway. So it's tough to get a good one in the States.

Miller stopped, then the stuff we got here was contract brewed in Canada, now it's the German stuff again. Full circle.

To the best of my recollection, it's just the Munich one that makes it to the States. And Miller hasn't brewed it for years. It's the actual Munich stuff now, as of 2-3 years ago (IIRC), after it had shifted to being brewed in Canada.
