Martin243 (1126) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2016
500ml bottle from Aldi. Bright gold body, white head. Bready aroma. Somewhat vegetal with malt to the fore. Lively carbonation. Full bodied. Good Marzen, I enjoyed it.

ForlornHope (504) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle from Aldi. Nice golden colour with a white head and good lacing. Sweet, bready aroma with a little grassy, floral hop. Sweet to start with a little balancing bitterness. Malt backbone with herbal hop notes and the bread notes continue. Fairly high carbonation but rich and satisfying on the palate.

BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
500ml Flip-top bottle from my local Aldi into an old half-litre ’Schultheiss’ glass at home on 28th Sep 2016. Drinking it while looking out the patio doors hoping it is going to rain, or I will have to mow the lawn when I finish the glass. Anyway onto the beer: cracking ’pop’ on opening. Golden bodied, clean and clear, on top a thick white foaming blanket that hung around. Aroma is weak, body is soft on the palate, taste is subtle: slight herbal notes in both the nose and flavour. More malty than hoppy, but not a huge amount of either to be honest. I do not think for one minute that this is the same beer I had many years ago at the Cannstatter Volksfest.

DanielBrown (4477) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle from Aldi. Has the boiled vegetable water taste of an Oktoberfest beer. Also some arrowroot biscuit. This style beer is ok, but I’m glad it’s seasonal. Thin, tangy malt. Sour finish. Average.

Garrold (5071) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Bottle. Aldi. Clear, pale gold, with a thin, blotchy, lasting, white head. Nose has cereal. Some granary bread. Some green leaf hop. Taste is a little grassy bitter. Not overly sweet or bready. Clean palate. Light and foamy carbonation. Light bitter finish. Ok.

Many thanks for this swing-top bottle to kevnic2008. Piwo srednie ogolnie mowiac/ piana tez srednia i średnio trwala. kolor ciemno zloty lub jasno bursztynowy. Smak ziarnisty lekko karmelowy sporo toffi i krowki. trochę słonecznika prazonego w karmelu. ogolnie słodkawe i delikatne piwo choć niewielka ilość chmielowej goryczki tez dalo się wyczuć.

Seems like the Brewmaster was told to make an Oktoberfest style beer, but had to brew it with existing inventory. Beer has a slight toffee aroma. Flavor is sweet, a little malt, and some carbonic tang and that’s about it. Appearance was a small creamy head. Totally forgettable beer. Give the bottle to a homebrewer.
