2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From Aldi in a little 25cl bottle. A yellow body, small white head. Aroma: nothing much, some wet cardboard with grass trimmings. Flavour: Grassy, some maltiness, weird plastic finish. Cheap as chips and don’t really expect a lot for 10 bottles for €5. Good yard work beer if chilled right down.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml green bottle: one of a pack bought in my local Aldi for a bar-b-que on Fathers Day. My kids know how to spoil me! This little bottle was saved and I’m now drinking it at leasure in bright sunshine on the patio (19 Jun 2013). Poured into a tall Kolsch glass (twice): looked your normal/average lager/pilsner, golden, clear and bright. This had a good deep head too, unusual for most within this style or type of beer. Not a lot going on in the nose: grains and a slight metallic feel maybe. Dry, crisp and clean: hops give a bitter finish and the malts a sweeter taste within the body. OK: considering the price, this isn’t too bad at all. Mr Average for the style I suppose.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
25cl stubby bottles in a ten-pack. Fairly standard French lager, not too bad actually as a cold refresher. Pale amber, bright white head; grassy aroma; grainy taste; and a sweetish finish with a trace of cardboardy hops.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are grain with butter and a light grassiness. Hints of apricot and lemon with sugar. Flavours are cereal, sugar and butter with dry hops on the finish. Corn and cabbage with traces of metal. Refreshing in a ’it’s cold and wet’ kind of way. Pretty standard.
