Kurtos (124) - Sydney, - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of sweet corn, grass and cereal. Taste. flavours of grass and sweet corn with a herby finish. Nothing to good or to bad in terms of mouth feel. Overall quite a standard lager, with no off flavours but quite bland at the same time, good for the price and must be drunk cold.

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
500ml bottle from Aldi and drunk at home. Clear mid gold colour no head. Some pale malts in the flavour. Some breadyness on the aroma. Fullish in the mouth. Some very light lemon and orange. Not very bitter. OK.

AshtonMcCobb (4076) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle. Appearance - golden with a generous fluffy head. Nose - light citrus and herbs. Some honey. Taste - fresh lemon and grassy herbs. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a decent pils somewhat in a German or Belgian style.

stravale (2525) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 8, 2015
Can from Aldi, Carrick-on-Shannon [290715] 4.8%
Golden blonde, clear, big bubbly white head, poor head retention
Aroma - Almost nothing, hint of cooked veg
Taste of soft grain malt, slightly metallic, very little flavour, bland.
Palate - Medium carb, medium light body, slightly sweet corn malts. Finish is a bit metallic bitter
Overall - Bland generic industrial lager. Certainly isn’t badged Stella - tastes nothing like that.

The_Osprey (3507) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
500ml bottle at home, 4.8% BB June 2016. Golden dark yellow, clear, sparkling, decent foamy white head. Aroma is rubbery, lager, tyres, mulched newspaper. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is light cereals, tissue, plain and watery, crisp finish with a musty linger. Not much to see here.

Hanoi (620) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle for budget month. 75p not expecting much. Nose is minimal, cereal and metal. Taste is cereal, grain, slight caramel strongly metallic. It’s too sweet and is a very poor macro larger. The worst of the budget aldi beers I’ve tried by since distance.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
One that got away for a long time. 1) Can@Pipers End. Deep gold slicked loosely with foam. Aroma of gentle soapiness, lemon curd, shrub, flour and glue. Way more appealing flavour than that suggests with a clean drying bitterness, pale toasted grain, lemon and grassy suggestions edged with rubber. Better than drinkable. 426211. 2) Addendum: from the bottle industrial cider, sourish mineral and clinging wet dough aspects. Tastes oddly like a certain species of regional English ’Golden Ale’ brewed by Ringstons/Wychstons or the like. Still drinkable, but...

SarkyNorthener (3083) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle (4.8 % produced in France) from aldi. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of pale malts and cereal grain. Taste is cereal grain, pale malts and a little sweetness. Lots of carbonation. Not bad for the price.

Mjp12 (824) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
A malt heavy aroma, pale lager appearance, quite a sweet taste. For less than a pound a bottle, it’s ok as a summer thirst quencher.

allmyvinyl (6634) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 10, 2015
500ml bottle from Aldi. Pours clear honey gold, thick, but short-lived white head. Try to be sure right from the start - Aromas of lemon and Spring grass, light malt. Taste is light granulated sugar sweet. I Like the Swallow. I was always thinking, a slight astringency builds on the finish. I’ve heard some people say, so wrong, oh, so wrong. But it was OK.

mabuzzer (309) - SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2015
500ml bottle from Aldi, at 4.8%. Fizzy, clear, straw coloured generic lager. Metallic aroma, some malt in the flavour. Ok for 79p a bottle
