2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
440ml can, best before 06/2013.
Every so often I do something stupid: like buy beers I know I’ll not really enjoy, seeing this ’Lowenstein’ Pilsner with the German name in my local Aldi and noting it was actually brewed in France, I still bought a four pack!
Poured into two ’Veltins’ Pilsner stemmed tulip glasses on 02 Nov 2012, the beer looked fine: usual lager/pilsner clean, bright, golden body with the customary thin white head on each glass.
The nose was weak: slight hop notes but nothing else.
The actual beer was semi-hoppy, dry, refreshing but with a mild metallic feel. This is OK for a cheap supermarket brew and I’ll happily give the other three cans to my son and his mates over christmas.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
As pictured. Can from the tap. Pale yellow with a fine white foam. Glue and corn aroma; sherbet lemon hints. Flavour leaning towards the drinkably corny end of the spectrum; hay, slight marzipan, mushy peas. Better than Moritz: managed half a can.

LOWENSTEIN. One is enough. Say goodbye to your stomach lining guys! This is the beer of kings, one day we will all be riding around on the backs or pumas and we will be fueled by Lowenstein. After numerous tests, we discovered it actually emits light, we believe Lowenstein is a viable solution to the fuel crisis that is soon to come. Of course, there are drawbacks to this drink. monumental dehydration is sure to follow your first and after a night of Lowenstein you’ll never want another but it is cheap so what do you expect?
Overall, drink it...all the time...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
440ml can of Aldi Lowenstein. Pale straw with a billowing off-white head; aroma of warm straw with some floral hops; soft with a grainy flavour that’s not too sweet; and a clean finish. Not at all bad for a budget lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light appearance with a dry but sweet taste to it, but also very drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can 50cl, a clear yellow beer with medium head. Aroma is just bit sweet and malty ant the finish, for the rest nothing except a papery bitterness at the finish, watery and boring, but what to expect for this price !

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lowenstein 500ml can from Aldi. Creamy, sweet, some hop. Steely flint nose, some herb. It’s drinkable and inoffensive, but not great stuff. Lingering powdery bitterness in the finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Cheap no doubt but not a good taste. Drank from can so didn’t get appearance but taste was slightly bitter and metallic. Watery also which wasn’t good. So it’s cheap which is a positive but you wouldn’t buy it if it were in any way expensive.

Some fluffy head and aroma of yeast and alcohol. Very little taste - some hops, bitter finish. Okay for drinking lots of, and these are ridiculously cheap, which makes such an exercise more than feasible.

Pours pale yellow with frothy white head. Yeasty and thin bodie, but excellent for the price.
