The aroma is malty with light hops. The appearance is golden. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall not that good.

It’s a pretty bad beer. I had a good laugh about it looking like Heineken. It is what it is, you probably paid about $1 per beer.

Bottle. Pours a straw color with no real head. Aroma of grain, bit of malt sweetness and a bit musty. Taste of mild malt sweetness and grain. Light body, with a gritty texture. Run of the mill Euro-lager.

Just sampled this side by side with Heineken. They are using a different yeast strain as the aroma is very different, in my opinion better. Heineken is somewhat dryer by comparison, but for $5.99 a six pack at Aldi, you cannot go wrong. Typical Europils and still way better than American macrobeers.
For the price, a good thirst quencher.

33cl green bottle, Golden pour. Mild aroma, no skunk. Falvor is vaguely fruity, lightly oxidized, overall unassuming and unoffensive.

Quite fine beer but still a macrobrewery lager. Nice aroma and can be drank with no complaints knowing this.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aldi USA import that tries to mimic Heineken. An inexpensive import, slightly skunky with hops. Easy drinking but not a flavorful as Heineken.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
It poured a pale golden yellow color with no head. The aroma was of sourish grainy character, corn and some straw. The taste was similar with a touch of sour, some grain and a bland finish.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 After a long walk in the neighborhood on the first warmish day after a never-ending winter you may find yourself at Aldi. They offer three beers as far I could see, a German one, this dutch one and a corona clone. The german one wasn’t too bad and well this wasn’t too bad either. Not great and tastes pretty much like a grassier less sweet not quite a good version of Heineken but decent enough. The missus uncharacteristically likes it too. Serving: Bottle
