28th September 2012: dodgy lager/pilsner tasting (at home). Blue 500ml can (no mention of Export on it) of GALAHAD Premium lager (3.9%): best before 02/2013. poured (three times) into my lovely old DAB mini-tankard. Golden, bright and light: it looked every inch a lager/pilsner, even down to the typical disappearing head of pure white bubbles that turn into a collar and wisp before your fist sip. No real smell, some grainy traces maybe but otherwise odourless: gets my standard 3 score for a non-smelling lager/pilsner. The taste was crisp and semi-sweet: a long way from good, but also a long way from being bad. This is just a cheap supermarket brew (Aldi) and if treated as such doesnt disappoint.

1.99 for four now at Aldi. Bloody cheap. Bloody shit beer. However, I cant tell the difference between this and all other standard mass produced lagers. I cant always be paying for premium beers, so Galahad will tie me over for a brief period, while Im awaiting the next proper ale. Suitable beer for supping whilst thrash hardcores raging from the record player. Hey, at least its not Carling! I HAVE SINNED!!!

Aroma of Aluminium. Tastes of Aluminium. A cheap and cheerful beer that does the job if you dont mind getting Alzheimers from the Aluminium. Moderation is the key.

Do not listen to negative comments about this beer: if these people got served this beer from a fancy bottle/can that cost 5 from a bottle shop/bar theyd rate it highly (as they are pretentious). This beer is very very tasty, never mind the price, this is one of the nicest canned lagers Ive had. Its simple and straight forward but incredible in flavour. The can doesnt look great and it doesnt have a thick head but it has the substance where it counts. Its 2.04 for 4 cans, look no further. I am drinking one now.

Found at my parents house. Pale wheat yellow color with very weak white foam. Aromas very weak of malt and aluminum. Palate weak, watery light no aftertaste. Tastes of malt and that is about it. Overall, very glad I just found it and not bought it! (To be fair it is just for the list)

Can from Aldi, great Barr. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of sweetcorn and metallic. Taste is sweetcorn, pale malts and a little hop bitterness. Not great.

Pretty solid unspectacular lager like Carlsberg or something. You can buy something like 230 cans of this for a fiver down a well known cheapo German supermarket. The lager equivalent of Stoke City

Right. Do not listen to anybody here except me. Now...I was of the same opinion as most of these when I first Encountered this beer. You think "GALAHAD" never heard if it. Why aint it frothing up when I open it. Lets be honest were all beer snobs cause weve all been drinking a long time. But the more you drink it the better it gets. And when I say the better it gets I mean for how cheap it costs you should have no complaints. If you wanna save money but still get pissed this is the beer for you. Its gone Down to 2.15 at our aldi for 4 cans. I can get pissed for 4.30....

Upon opening my can, I was hit by an EXTREMELY unpleasant smell, the lager tastes, watery? and there isnt really any distinctive flavouring. Can looks neat though.
