Kurtos (159) - 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.

Gary (1800) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
500ml : in a Bitbuger pint jug : This humble shit was the beer I swilled fast after shaving 3 mins of my best running time of the year on Sunday: not much of a reward, but my palate needed to be cleansed and the 750ml of Gueuze in my fridge might have killed me after a gruelling run . This is a philistine beer . My offering was presented in a lame green bottle , thus differing to the can picture here. I like a shitty lager more than your typical beer-wanker , but this ainít do a whole lot for me . Grain, hay , boiled sweets, pennies, apple, even the bitterness is subtle. Only ok to drink after a self congratulatory run!

jjsint (2048) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
Purchased from - guess where? - thatís right! Aldi! Labelled at 4.8%. Drunk at home. Piss yellow looking. Lemony, skunky smell so prevalent in cheap Euro lager. Taste is sweet and corny/malty, not bad. Caramel and bready notes in the finish and aftertaste. This isnít so bad, better than I remember Stella being, however itís not something I would drink again on purpose.

TedE (814) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2015
330ml bottle into lager glass. Sweet hop nose. Clear amber beer with thin film. Light carbonation. Hoppy euro taste, odd tangy bitter finish. Watery and not to be repeated.

With little money, what are we resorted to doing? Drinking Aldi beers. Still, it is a beer.

harrisoni (16735) - 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 (4919) - 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 (2723) - 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 isnít badged Stella - tastes nothing like that.

The_Osprey (5487) - 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.
