UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 (330ml bottle from Aldi) AROMA: clean, bavarian nose, light corn, wet paper, soft hops APPEARANCE: medium light straw yellow, clear, minimal head TASTE: raw grain/wheat upfront, roasted corn, grain bread, tad sweet, green followthru with light bittterness PALATE: relatively light body, clean, crisp, some biting astringency, water feel OVERALL: a light-ish beer that is above average in nose and flavor for a pale lager, it does have the german characteristics, some may not like it because of the 'skunkiness' but that is the grain malt coming through. Not great but not bad.

Clear gold with lots of carbonation and a lasting head. The hops are lightly light struck (skunked) due to the green bottle. Crisp and sharp hop bitterness with a clean slightly grainy taste. Medium bitter finish. Typical Central European lager.

Onslow (1561) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Pour from 11.2oz bottle from Aldi’s. Clear golden brew, small head, no lacing. Moderate aroma of grass with some metallic notes, a little skunk upon first open the bottle (though that quickly fades). Taste is light malt up front, emerging grass in the middle, moderately grassy finish with some rough off notes at the very end. Palate is somewhat watery. A decent Euro style lager but not something I plan to purchase again.

330 ml bottle from Aldi. Bacher is brewed in Belgium by Martens in Bocholt. It pours a very clear golden color with a nice white head. The carbonation is typical for European lagers being somewhat lower than domestic lagers. The aroma is of sweet malt. The flavor is also malt dominated with very low hop bitterness. I think that this is a pretty good modern Europils and tastes much better and cleaner than Heineken, Carlsberg or Stella Artois. And at $5.99 a six-pack, you cannot beat the price. .

Bottle from Aldi’s. It poured a clear pale color with a white head. The aroma was malts, hay and cereal. The taste was similar to the aroma with a sweet flavor and soft carbonation.

Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pour a very clear yellow with minimal head. It has a sweet, wet hay aroma. The taste is of crisp hay and grass with skunk. It’s a shame they put this in green bottles, because it would otherwise be a pretty solid Reinheitsgebot lager, but the skunkiness really kicks it down a notch.

Braudog (6979) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. This a case of it is what it is. Super pale yellow with little to it, this is yet a cleanly made, technically flawless pale lager. Which is what’s it’s labeled as. We beer nerds can be unduly harsh on beers of this nature. But by 1975 standards, this would be deemed a premium import. Not bad. (#6266, 8/8/2016)

Bacher has a thick, white head, a clear, straw-gold appearance, bubble streams, and lots of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of pale, biscuit malt, and grassy hops. Taste is of sweet, pale malt, white bread, yeast, some paper, and noticeable, grassy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Bacher finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

This is the most horrible skunky beer I’ve ever tasted. My Aldi just got their beer license so it’s not an age thing. I need my 7$ back.
