DanielBrown (3697) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle from Aldi. I don’t want to add anything to Druncan’s review below. It says everything. It’s a brilliant description. I also agree that Aldi’s selection of beers is rubbish these days.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottles from Aldi. Brilliant lager gold capped with a dense but subsiding white foam. Distinctly Germanic lager aroma with hints of pine, sappy shrub, honey, Madeira cake and almond. Decent drying pilsner-like effort; soft condition, lime and grassy hop; bread stick and honey; peanut, slightly bilious bitter hop finish. Serviceable, tasty German-style lager pissing over anything Aldi have stocked for some time.

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle from Aldi. Gold, fluffy but quickly disappearing white head and good condition. Gentle fruity grain sweetness and a low peppery hop note in the nose. Quite full in the mouth with an initial grainy sweetness soon giving way to a dominant hippy bitterness with a slightly spicy edge. Finish is fruity and hop bitter

500ml bottle from Aldi. Refreshing enough golden coloured ale but fairly insipid. Pleasant enough.
