It’s poor. Got fooled by the lowestein name and thought I’d have a punt on it. It’s watery, pretty tasteless pish, as you’d expect from a saint omer

Can from Aldi as Lowenstein. Pours clear good with a thick white head and a steady stream of bubbles. Aromas of light lemon, shandy. Taste is thin, cooked corn, light astringent finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Well my #2500 rate is a shitty lager from Aldi, probably the cheapest beer in the ROI at €2.99 for 4 cans...
Can from Aldi, Carrick-on-Shannon  marketed as Lowenstein
Light blonde, clear, big bubbly head, poor head retention
Aroma of corn, cooked veg, nope
Taste of almost nothing, slight sweet corn, light sweet pale malt, odd sort of a stale dough note
Palate - Medium carb, medium light body, light sweet. Finish of very little, slight sweet, at least it isn’t rough
Overall - Drinkable but shit...what do you expect for 75c a can?

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
BOTTLE 25CL. Clear yellow, white frothy head. Smells of nothing, not even off-flavours. Maybe a touch of „warm” herbal hops. Taste is dry, husky grains, cardboard, „green” grassy bitterness. Piss.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
pale yellow colour, moderate sized white head, which disappears quite quickly; aroma and taste of some bread, grass, sourness and cardboard; very far from being real beer (would be better to market it as a refreshing alcoholic beverage, which would be much closer to the reality...)

Every so often I do something stupid: like buy beers I know I’ll not really enjoy, seeing this ’Lowenstein’ Pilsner with the German name in my local Aldi and noting it was actually brewed in France, I still bought a four pack!
Poured into two ’Veltins’ Pilsner stemmed tulip glasses on 02 Nov 2012, the beer looked fine: usual lager/pilsner clean, bright, golden body with the customary thin white head on each glass.
The nose was weak: slight hop notes but nothing else.
The actual beer was semi-hoppy, dry, refreshing but with a mild metallic feel. This is OK for a cheap supermarket brew and I’ll happily give the other three cans to my son and his mates over christmas.
