One bottle acquired in a trade. Poured a large white head that stayed around awhile. Nice light hops aroma. Very pale in color. Light hops flavor throughout. A decent Pils.

NIce hop aroma of typical German pils. Head retention not that great. Nice & white and rocky but didn’t last very long. Beer was very drinkable. One of the better German pils available, though not near a Bitburger or Jever.

dwyerpg (4566) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Smells funky, piss in color with meringue head - in appearance and flavor. At least it taste better than it looks or smells. Has a slight spice to it. Taste lingers pleasantly - overall an average beer.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2005
Mildly grainy pils malt aroma with spicy and flowery hops and just a touch of DMS. Clear light golden body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that lasts nicely. Mild, crisp bitterness with a slight grainy flavour to the very dry, yet malty flavour with some floral hop flavour. Bitterness lingers pleasantly on the tongue. Medium-light body while moderately high carbonation is engaging on the tongue. Seems to be a very good example of the style. Can (LCBO - Nov. 2004).

Very pale color, decent head. Mild but pleasant German hops aroma, decent hoppy palate, but overall it made me long for times in Germany sampling the real thing.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Nice pale golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was lightly malty with some decent hopping and a slight medicinal side as well.The flavor wasn’t totaly bad but nothing special eather.Lightly malty taste with a decent hop presence in the middle and a slight medicinal taste towards the end with a sort of dry finish.This might just be an old bottle or something but i guess at $3.99/6er i can deal with it for a few more.

ekarmst (44) - Ames, Iowa, USA - FEB 12, 2005
An Aldi’s special that was too good to be true. While this beer is cheap and drinkable, it is not what I would expect from a German brewery. This beer, at best, is a poorly made american lager. Acetylaldehyde dominates the nose with a wisp of cardboard and hops. No malt aroma. Very light colored with a thin weak head. Little malt flavor to balance the distinct hop middle and finish. Over attenuated, thin and lifeless. To much carbonation causes the beer to spill out of the bottle when opened. Not a bad beer, just flat out the worst German brewed beer I have ever had.

500ml can. Pale gold, good sized fluffy white head. Malt and slight noble hops aroma. Clean malts, mild bitterness. Very lightly carbonated.

pkbites (688) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Deep, somewhat spicy aroma. Average head and straw color. moderate hops and medium bitter after taste. Some slight spice in the backdrop detected. I’m not a big Pilsener fan, so my grading my be tougher than others. This is one of several brews I’ve purchased at Aldis. What befuddles me is that I’ve not seen these beers anywhere else, including the specialty liquor stores. Where is Aldi getting this stuff!?!
