2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
At £3 for a 10 pack, or 30 pence per bottle, nothing beats the price. However this beer just doesn’t taste good enough to crave it. It’s very easy to resist since it just doesn’t taste very amazing. It’s a french lager, and appropriately, unlike a lot of US lagers, it doesn’t seem to pair well with spicy foods, and it also doesn’t quench the thirst after a long hot day like most lawnmower beer. It lacks crispiness, but it does have a nice carbonation, not overly carbonated. While the taste is not offensive, it doesn’t settle in the stomach as well as higher quality beers and so you can be left feeling a little unsatisfied. Its color is very clear, and can be poured without too much head. I can’t for the life of me figure out what this beer pairs well with. I actually use it for cooking pancakes/baking bread and it works perfect for that function.
I’d give it 7/20. It’s below average, but not horrible because it’s priced well, and its flavor isn’t offensive. Although it seems to be a lager, it doesn’t pair well with mexican/other spicy foods. At best, I’d imagine it might go well with mild or savory Asian food. It is not a thirst quencher beer either. Basically this is a beer of limited utility.

Bottle from Aldi, Washington. A pale golden beer that pours without any sort of head. It has malty and toffee flavours with a slight grassy and sulphurous finish. Pretty good considering it’s a very cheap beer.

I find this to be a little metallic in taste, and struggle to find much aroma in it, and it has a fairly thin mouth feel too - but it’s cheap and it chills well and is a so-so beer all round - no provenance as to where it’s brewed, but I have a suspicion that it could be St Omer

From Aldi in a little 25cl bottle. A yellow body, small white head. Aroma: nothing much, some wet cardboard with grass trimmings. Flavour: Grassy, some maltiness, weird plastic finish. Cheap as chips and don’t really expect a lot for 10 bottles for €5. Good yard work beer if chilled right down.
