Light amber, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of soft citrus hops, sweet fruity malts, light malt background
Taste of soft zest, soft citrus hops, some grassy hop, fairly hoppy, light caramel malts, easy going
Palate - soft carb, light body, fairly bitter hops with light sweet malt background. Finish as main flavour, fairly bitter zest hop linger, sweet malts
Overall - A quite decent pale ale at a good price from Aldi

triskaideka (128) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle @home - this is Aldi’s "own brand". Pours amber - with a good white head. Plenty of hop bitterness as you’d expect from an IPA. Good value

ciaranc (800) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 28, 2013
Pours clear straw gold with a big foamy white head which settles to a thin foam. Loads of tiny bubbles in the body. Nice lacing from this one. Nice grass/straw on the nose along with some sweet biscuity malt. Robust flavour of a nice balanced malt/hop character, both elements are quite pronounced. Medium-strong carbonation which is lively in the mouth and quite big bodied. Mouthfeel is soft, though lively and a touch slick. Quite bitter in the finish, where the hops take over from the malt up front. A good beer and very good value.
