Bought an an ALDI in Vermont; very cheap, just over $1 a bottle, and I was very pleased. Classic German Pilsner character...very light, hoppy, and bitter. Crisp mouthfeel and flavor. Moderate bitterness...very refreshing. Significant metallic taste, but this didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the brew. I would definitely buy again. Not the best Pilsner (it’s brewed by the same brewery as Bitburger but I think I pretty clearly prefer Bitburger, among other Pilsners), but at this price I really can’t complain.

Flaska från kompis. Ljus och lättdrucken. Kanske lite väl söt i avslutet men funkar absolut som "grillolja".

I’ve had this in Germany in the city it is brewed in and I’ve had it at home purchased from our local Aldi. It is a great import for a great price. It has a moderate hoppy flavor with a slight bitterness. For the most part what you would expect from a German pils. Very refreshing beer, light in color, but very flavorful.

Pours clear golden and sports a nice white head with decent lacing. The nose is not very complex; it consists of earthy-grassy hop notes, trivial grain notes and a hint of creaminess. The flavor profile lacks the snappy bitterness I expect from a pilsner and has no real development to speak of on the palate, though there is nothing unpleasant about it either. The finish reveals a hint of sweetness. The mouthfeel is creamy, frothy and almost too mellow with its soft carbonation. Placed slightly above average amongst generic pilsners.

Douberd (2058) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
500ml bottle at home, poured into a pilsner glass, ABV 4.9% Clear golden yellow beer, with a steady white head on top, two fingers tall, thick and soapy. Medium lacing on the glass. Intense activity in it. Sweet malty aroma, grass. Taste of malts, clean grass, german hops, with a good bitterness on the finish, gaining in strenght on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, quite carbonated. Mildly dry palate. Overall quite good.

Creme com pouca duração, mas tem boa densidade. Tem cor dourada e pouco turva. É um cerveja amarga, sendo o inicio bem equilibrado, podendo sentir o lúpulo no final. O aroma é discreto, não fazendo jus ao sabor.

Serving: from bottle--purchased at Allendörfer. Aroma: light grassy hop. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, white initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, light-yellow body. Taste: lightly sour initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: I didn’t like the flavor.

fhoublon (314) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Canette de 500 ml. Dégustée le 19 mai 2008. Bière blonde pâle limpide. Mousse assez, col moyen, durable. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Légère odeur de céréales et d’amertume. Très douce, assez sucrée. Goût d’amandes assez présent et de céréales. Très bonne mais un peu mince.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 500 ml can from LCBO. Very pale yellow with thin white head. Good lager smells, grainy malt and hops. Tastes a bit fruity, mild bitterness, watery, kinda weak. Unoffensive but bland.
