COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Specially produced for Aldi Stores’ "Specially Selected" range.

The finest Maris Otter barley, Lincolnshire and oven roasted crystallised malts are matured that little bit longer to replicate the ales which were transported over to the East India Company in bygone days. Brewed by Batemans in their 130 year lincolnshire family brewery.

Bottle Aldi. Not seen it stocked for a few years now. Light tastings slightly hoppy ale in a identifiable Batemans style.

5.0% pale amber with a very thin head, slightly sweet hop aroma, sweet caramelised malt with some hop and dry citrus taste.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle. Yellow and clear with a medium body body. Small head and some hops although not as many as anticipated in a beer badged IPA. Batemans never make a poor beer and this is no exception. Better than expected-certainly not the cheep and cheerful that I associate with Aldi.

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2010
Pours a golden amber with a lacy white head...aroma is malt and then a slightly metallic taste in the mouth, some bitterness and leading onto some orange texture, not bad actually

tkrjukoff (4059) - SWEDEN - APR 29, 2010
Pours clear amber with white head leaving some lacing on the glass. Sweet hoppy and malty aroma. A bit artificial fruity flavor, good crisp hoppyness. Sweet-bitter on palate and finish is pleasantly hoppy-sweet. Not bad for a Aldi beer.

cgarvieuk (14542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle at home ... WIth home made Steamed Buns ... mmmm... which is more than id really say about the beer... It was decent pairing as it was quite clean with the spiced pork filling ... copper light bubbly white head ... sweet toffee malt ... light sweet slight metalic fruity hop ... clean and simple with a little bitterness.

scotty (1054) - SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2009
From Aldi (obviously!) Galashiels, looks ok, head lasts fairly well, average aroma, hops to the fore. Quite sweet palate with a hint of fruit creeping in on the finish. Not the best IPA I’ve tasted but worth a bash.

leaparsons (8102) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle. Amber brown with a small head. Aromas are tea and light malts with some raisins. Flavours are caramel malts with spices and dry tea. Woody with thin pine notes. Fairly medicinal. Not a true IPA at all but still reasonable.

Fin (7464) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2009
Bottle from Aldi, Aylesbury, Bucks, consumed 13-01-09 Pours mid amber with a white head and some busy carbonation. There is some initial sweetness which is balanced reasonably well with an underlying bitterness. I also get a slight creamy vanilla thing going on and there is definately some banana and toffee which I only notice three quarters of the way through this. Its quite fruity in general and a bit tangy there could even be a hint of orange. In fact as this Aldi/Batemans range goes this isn’t to bad and has a wider range of flavours than the other two I’ve tried. A6 A4 F6 P3 OV12

imdownthepub (10325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2008
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml, from Aldi, Banbury. Amber with white head. Perfectly acceptable beer if done on the cheap, grainy, slightly caramelised malt, but gives up a reasonable bitterness with a little background hop with an orange sweetish note. The body is light with touches of cardboard. Not an unattractive beer.
