3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear yellow with a small white head. Very mild aroma of corn flakes. Taste is a little sweet, grainy, slightly citrusy, and a touch medicinal. Light bodied and slightly dry.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nothing offensive or exceptional here. Pours a typical pale yellow with a medium white head and decent lacing. Aroma is a slightly off-putting fermented corn and grain. Taste is light, mild hops, hay and a tinge metallic but not overwhelming. Drinks fairly easy and finishes clean. Again nothing that stands out.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pour is a yellow with a large white head. Aroma is burning and sulfur. Flavor is non offensive with some graininess, that’s about it. I was in a lager mood but this was a pretty poor choice. Nothing going on here.
