2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A golden coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong biscuity malt aroma, with a hint of hop in the background. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A mild bitter, lemony hop taste, then a slightly cloying malt flavour. The bitterness returns in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
440ml can: BBD June 15. Drank in my garden on 11th Aug 14. Part of a four pack from my local Aldi store.
I actually thought this was OK, looks fine: usual golden, clean and clear Pilsner/Lager appearance, good white head. I thought it had a slightly sweet and corn smell, this carried on into the taste which along with it’s fairly smooth body feel came across as a slick brew. There is a mild bitterness but this is towards the sweeter end of the style and good value for the money.

This is a nice lager. Smooth and very drinkable. Reminded me of another beer but not the one suggested. I’d buy it again, good choice Aldi.
