Previously 3.9%.

Golden in colour, this delicious lager has a sweet aroma and a light, hoppy aftertaste, giving way to a moderate bitter finish.

Pretty solid unspectacular lager like Carlsberg or something. You can buy something like 230 cans of this for a fiver down a well known cheapo German supermarket. The lager equivalent of Stoke City

Right. Do not listen to anybody here except me. Now...I was of the same opinion as most of these when I first Encountered this beer. You think "GALAHAD" never heard if it. Why ainít it frothing up when I open it. Letís be honest weíre all beer snobs cause weíve all been drinking a long time. But the more you drink it the better it gets. And when I say the better it gets I mean for how cheap it costs you should have no complaints. If you wanna save money but still get pissed this is the beer for you. Itís gone Down to £2.15 at our aldi for 4 cans. I can get pissed for £4.30....

Upon opening my can, I was hit by an EXTREMELY unpleasant smell, the lager tastes, watery? and there isnít really any distinctive flavouring. Can looks neat though.

This might be the best beer I have ever had. It is the closest thing to urine that I have ever had. Absolutely SOLID FOUNDATIONS. Turned Ed and Matt gay!

I wonít lie Iím a Galahad man. Always was always will be. The aroma of Galahad makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Its appearance isnít perfect. Light gold and losses its head quite fast. But its taste and palatability are second to none. Canít beat a cold wednesday afternoon sittin down watching Batman Begins or The Hangover with 12 tins of galahad tucked in beside me. My idea of paradise. As Little Tommy Browne Hawaii would sing"Gala, Gala, Galahad"(Played to the music of Robbie Williams song Paradise).

Clear golden, flat headed supermarket lager. It has a very sweet taste and aroma to match.

BlackHaddock (4119) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
28th September 2012: dodgy lager/pilsner tasting (at home). Blue 500ml can (no mention of Export on it) of GALAHAD Premium lager (3.9%): best before 02/2013. poured (three times) into my lovely old DAB mini-tankard. Golden, bright and light: it looked every inch a lager/pilsner, even down to the typical disappearing head of pure white bubbles that turn into a collar and wisp before your fist sip. No real smell, some grainy traces maybe but otherwise odourless: gets my standard 3 score for a non-smelling lager/pilsner. The taste was crisp and semi-sweet: a long way from good, but also a long way from being bad. This is just a cheap supermarket brew (Aldi) and if treated as such doesnít disappoint.

McTapps (4564) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Cans bought at Aldi UK. Aroma of citrus fruits, colour is golden. Strong taste of German Pilsener; citrus fruits, refreshing with a medium-balanced bitterness. Okay, but nothing too good.

Can from Aldi. Pours in golden with huge and stable head. Simple aroma, bit grainy, maybe some malt. Taste is alright. A simple and watery lager. Could be Carling or whatever. Drinkable.

440ml can. Pale straw colour, white head; aroma of damp straw; thin, sweet and grainy. A marginal improvement on tap water.
