stravale (2567) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 8, 2015
Well my #2500 rate is a shitty lager from Aldi, probably the cheapest beer in the ROI at €2.99 for 4 cans...
Can from Aldi, Carrick-on-Shannon [290715] marketed as Lowenstein
Light blonde, clear, big bubbly head, poor head retention
Aroma of corn, cooked veg, nope
Taste of almost nothing, slight sweet corn, light sweet pale malt, odd sort of a stale dough note
Palate - Medium carb, medium light body, light sweet. Finish of very little, slight sweet, at least it isn’t rough
Overall - Drinkable but shit...what do you expect for 75c a can?

dnicolaescu (1438) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 24, 2015
BOTTLE 25CL. Clear yellow, white frothy head. Smells of nothing, not even off-flavours. Maybe a touch of „warm” herbal hops. Taste is dry, husky grains, cardboard, „green” grassy bitterness. Piss.

Lore (1647) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 19, 2014
pale yellow colour, moderate sized white head, which disappears quite quickly; aroma and taste of some bread, grass, sourness and cardboard; very far from being real beer (would be better to market it as a refreshing alcoholic beverage, which would be much closer to the reality...)

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.

DruncanVeasey (7854) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2012
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.

LowensteinFTW (1) - - AUG 20, 2012 does not count
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...

berkshirejohn (5390) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
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.
