2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle, bought at ALDI as a six pack. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Very deep orange colour, no activity in it. Less than a finger of white head, with low retention, no lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of maltose and sugars. A bit on the offensive side.
Sweet taste with also sweet aftertaste. Not much to find here, just sugars and malts.
Thin to medium body, light carbonation. Sort of oily on the palate.
Overall, not that good, I am so not looking forward to drink the rest of the six pack.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Aldi. Old yellow with a thin, quickly disappearing white head. Sweet malty aroma with faint hops. Sweet taste with a alcoholic undertone. As this is a Schulten Bräu I expected cheap sweet thin beer and I wasn’t disappointed.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had a bottle of this a while back.
Small airy white head on top of a clear bright yellow golden colored beer.
Smell is sweet malty with some grains, fruit and herbs.
Taste is much the same: low to unbalanced sticky sweet yeasty malty barley mix of ingredients.
Maly herby older hoppy aftertaste.
Medium carbo, tingly mouthfeel, low to medium body and a watery texture.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with mediumsize fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some bready malts as well as slightly citrus fruity and grassy. Flavour is sweet malts, bready malts, some slight alcohol as well as mild herbal and fruity notes. Feels rather thin in the palate for being 6.5 % ABV.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good, yellowish tinted head, leaving textbook lace over old gold-coloured beer. Frangipane and fresh malts nose, lightly sweet. Slightly bitter-burnt, very toasted flavour over almondy-sweet malts; with yet again a very fresh (malt) aspect. Empty palate, just some malt syrup. Certainly not as bad as some of Bavaria’s malt liquor offerings, but compared to a real Heller Bock, way too empty. Fresh malts character remains remarkable, however.

Pours a bit flat with no head retention. Slightly sweet and sticky taste. Not much flavour overall although a hint of aniseed is tracable.

Clear yellow color, small white head. Aroma is sweet malty-fruity and grainy. Sweet apple, pineapple and banana flavors, alcoholic, grainy finish. Light herbal notes. Typical lente bock, kind of empty.

Aldi bier. Ik dronk het in juli op een warme dag en dan is deze te zoet. Hij voelt zelfs lobberig aan. Maar als ik het drink op een verkeerd moment dan is dat niet de schuld van de brouwer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a a clear yellow with a small and disappearing head giving it an unatttractive appearance. The aroma is not really pleasant too, Grain and hops, but some unpleasant notes like cardboard and dish-water too. The taste is pretty good compared to what came before tasting, it’s pretty sweet, a bit fruity, no spices and some grain. The finish is is a bit hoppy, but not very longlasting. Pretty good for such an ultra-cheap supermarket-bock, but not special or groundbreaking at all.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2009 Bottle@Home, June 2009, 2.2: Sweet malty aroma. Yellow colour, white head, good lace. Very sweet, sugary, hint of apple, light metallic bitterness. Sticky yet thin mouth feel. Cheap brew but still not worth the money. Bottle@Home, May 2001, 2.4: Aroma of apple, skunky hops and straw. Golden color, white head, good lace. Sweet, pretty bitter, light hoppy, some apple, light herbal, pretty neutral, bit sugary when warming up. Thin and tasteless.
