3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle £1.59 from ALDI. Poured into a large tulip. Bright golden body with a dense white head. A little hop aroma detectable, and a gentle nicely rounded fruitbread flavour. Full bodied for a lager, soft carbonation,clean palate. I could drink a few of these and watch the world go by.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle.Bought from Aldi at Cannock. Golden with a small head. Medium body with a small head and quite sweet. For some reason I think of as Winter beer as being dark, which this isn’t. Still quite a pleasant beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Aldi. Clean gold, smidge of lacing. Slightly carrotty taste, avec gentle corn. Also has thickness from dried corny bread. Couldn’t quite place the style - not sweet enough to be an Oktoberfest, but too sweet to be a Helles. All that is completely irrelevant nonsense of course. Principally it’s an engaging and very wholesome lager. Great value too.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Aldi. Spiralled into steady-fizzing, white-bloomed golden trumpet. Shrub, sweetcorn, honeycomb aroma. Good grassy lager underscored with honeyed toast and almond; some Danish pastry tones. Clean cashew and breadstick linger. Had some well dodgy German lagers of late but this is more like it; f**k all to do with winter but what and when is that??

Pours very light pilsner colour with a fast disappearing head, average carbonation. Aroma of bready malts leading into some slighly fruity berry like hops, quite sweet & a crisp finish. Decent

Bottle, from Aldi Grimsby. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Gentle grain and a faintly lemony citrus hop note in the nose, quite sweet and grainy in the mouth with gentle honey and fruity hops, faint grainy hop bitterness in the finish with a lingering fruitiness.
