I've seen beer in Aldi before. My wife likes certain products they market so I'm in there the other day with her and look......they sell German beer.
I'd never heard of the brand even though they also produce Bittburger, which is VERY popular there.
Ok, so $6, what the heck.
This beer is surprisingly good, which I sort of did not expect. Not too heavy - which makes it drinkable without the bloat - and it's pretty hoppy and has a semi-dry floral finish.
In short - it's brewed by Germans (they know some stuff), by one of the best brewers in Germany (that can't be a bad thing), it's very refreshing (especially on a warm summer day) and it's priced to go easy on the wallet.

Not too shabby.

Appearance - Pours a finger of bright white head, body is a translucent lite gold, and leaves very light webbed lacing.

Smell - Light breadiness, lightly roasted grains, light corn, and very slight grassiness.

Taste - Much like the nose, there is light roasted malt, some soaked grains and corn, a nice bitter crust flavor, some prominent minerals, and grassy hops into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, medium carb is smooth and provides some scrub that accentuates the bitter and grassy hop flavors. Some of bitterness carries long into the finish and gets a bit metallic.

Overall - An okay pils, but gets borderline adjunct flavors. Got this really cheap at Aldi so I thought I'd give this one a try. Would make better mower beer.
