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.

Aldi USA import that tries to mimic Heineken. An inexpensive import, slightly skunky with hops. Easy drinking but not a flavorful as Heineken.

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

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.

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.
