Picked up in the local Aldi, a 330 ml can for €2.44. Not exactly cheap, but let’s see what these Rascals (yes, pun intended) can offer for the dollar.
It says “brewed with german hops” on the can, hence the name.

Top: forms a high, 2.5” slightly off white head, average retention into some lacing.

Colour: golden, some slight haziness. Looks alright.

Smell: pine, citrus, hints of floral notes.

Taste: the first few sips feel somewhat lager-ish, then balance comes in, some nice maltiness, citrus notes and some bittering hop aromas to finish the sip off. Good ratio of aromatic and bittering hops, nothing to hurt the tastebuds. Medium carbonation, medium- body, it feels slightly watery despite being 6% ABV. It doesn’t feel weak tho, alcohol content is clearly present (not boozy).

Summary: “an IPA for the everydays”, this should be printed on the can, and I wouldn’t argue. It’s extremely well balanced, however, nothing really special, tbh. A bigger body could really improve it. On the other hand, it’s super easy to drink. For less than 2€, it’d be a much better offer.
