2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
What lager has to do with winter I don’t know but it’s a winter beer apparently. Straw-coloured with almost no head, quite a bite on the after taste, honey, hops, zest, apple, pear. Gassy - great if you like to belch a lot to impress your mates. Not that your mates will be around if you’re drinking Aldi lager. Hey, wait! I’m not judging you OK?

A shabby lager. No distinctive characteristics - unless you count ’dull as fuck’ as a characteristic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 500ml from Aldi, Banbury. Yellow gold with white head. This is a light, slightly fruity, lemony beer, delicate hop notes and a touch of sweetness. Easy on the palate despite some carbonisation. It’s quite reasonable.

Forget the Winter snow scene, and just concentrate on beer.
Beer purchased from Aldi 50cl of top value beer.
This is the taste and mouth feel that makes Bavarian Helles the joy that it is.

50cl bottle from Aldi. Amber with a loose white head; slightly musty, grassy aroma; fresh grassy flavour with a viscous body, and some honey and toast; and a slight prickle to finish. A rather good lager.
