COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 660ml bottles, exclusively from Aldi supermarkets in the UK.
An intensely crisp and refreshing lager beer with a delicate touch of Italy. Brewed in North Italy according to an original recipe dating back to 1877. Crisp and lightly sparkling, its unique taste is refreshing and dry with a clear-cut, clean character. Perfect matchmaker to pair with pasta and pizzas and fish.

Bland well carbonated pilsener lager, but has a strong enough body to enjoy.

Bottle at home from Lidl - pours pale yellow with white head. Relatively inoffensive light lager - in the Peroni style. good beer for a summer’s day

johndoughty (3960) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle. Orange with a small head. Quite pleasant aroma but its all down hill after that. Some slightly malty flavours but these soon fade. Not recommended.

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
660ml green bottle from Aldi at a giveaway price. Cow dung aroma. Grainy, fat, rubbery malt that becomes more and more difficult to drink - and the bargain basement 660ml is starting to look like a very poor deal. Perhaps I needed to chill it a bit more - though to remove this taste would require the beer to be frozen, I think. Creamy, foamy head. Lager hops. Dusty, soon vanishing. Not enjoyable.

Roywilliam (8) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012 does not count
Poor supermarket beer but drinkable, essential taste of nothing! Good for a curry mouthwash.

tommann (2702) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
660ml bottle. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is quite grassy, but with eggy butter in there too. Taste is grassy throughout, easy to drink. Hint of egg with some minerals in the finish. A little oily. Fuck bombers of Punk!

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Same 66cl green bottle as everybody else: best before 07/2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 26/07/2012, so just out of date. Typical supermarket ’Med’ style lager/pilsner: looks clean, clear and bright without actually promising much. It was hot and sticky when I opened this and it was just what I needed, it was ’fit for purpose’ to be honest, more than a good beer I could recommend. It was cheap, it tasted cheap, but sometimes these sort of beers will do.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2012
66Cl bottle. tàste like a classic macro pale lager (Tasteless). I don’t recommend it.

berkshirejohn (4477) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
66cl bottle from Aldi. Straw with a rapidly fading white head; fresh grassy aroma; sweet cereal grain flavour; and a damp cardboard finish. On a par with most southern European macro lagers.
