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!?!

I didn’t have much faith in this one as I bought at Aldis for a whopping 4.49 for a sixer. I opened the bottle and poured into my glass and was presented with one heck of a white head. Amazing smell of decency awaits you, and a nice first sip with a nice hop boquet. Who says the discount supermarket can’t produce a find every now and then.

Large white head. Pale yellow, clear lager. Nicely hopped, good aftertaste. refreshing, a good thirst quencher. Light and dry, thin bodied.

Yellow in color with little head. Aroma is malty with citrus and herbs. Flavor is slightly bitter, notes of grass and grain. Finish is clean and smooth. Nice

FOAMer (45) - Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 27, 2004
AROMA: Light aroma with apparent DMS. Very low hop aroma with a low maltiness. DMS makes beer seem to have adjuncts. APPEARANCE: Straw to light golden in color. Very Clear with nice creamy head at pour. Very nice lacing as beer finishes glass. FLAVOR: Dryness is noticable in finish, with some sweetness upfront. Very low hop bitterness for a pilsner. DMS is notciable. Not sure if DMS is due to adjuncts like corn, or if in fermentation. MOUTHFEEL: some astringetnt character, medium mouth-feel OVERALL IMPRESSION: Overall a very drinkable beer, not what I consider a great pilsner, but very good. This beer would do well as a Northern German Pilsner or even a Contential Pilsner. Low bitterness and DMS take away from this beer.

Yellow color gold, shining and fizzy. Compact foam. Optimal scent with intense notes of bitter and malt.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2004
An Aldi’s buy. I was surprised by this one. Very malty grain flavor up front with a backend bitterness. The palate seems a little too thick for the style and low alcohol content. Nothing special in the aroma.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2004
Grainy with a faint floral nose. Skunky (green bottle) and there are certainly malts, florals and hops. Decent

Bottle from Aldi’s. White head, sparse lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Skunky and malty aroma. Yuck. Malt flavor. Smooth mouthfeel.

Not being a fan of this style of beer, I was expecting it to taste uber skunky, but to my surprise, it wasn’t bad at all! Crisp and decently flavorful; a great summer-day beer or just a decent alternative to the heavy, dark beers that I typically enjoy.
