$5.99 at Aldi, 'Beer of the Month'. More into dark beers, but for as pale as it is, it's all right. Not enough of an improvement over your typical light lager to merit searching for, but if you stumble upon it and like your beers yellow then by all means give it a try.

Drank this in Europe and from Aldi in the US. It is clean and inoffensive. Less malt and hops flavor than Heineken. Also little sour and a slight off aftertaste. Good value for easy drinking Euro beer. Lets say the PBR of Europe.

This is surprisingly good for a "cheap knockoff" beer. Of course given that it's made by Bavaria, it's not exactly from an unknown brewery. It's very very similar to Heineken (a good thing in my opinion) and while it may not be super cheap (like the $5 for 6 as someone else said it's worth), it's still cheap enough, and similar enough to make it worth it considering Heineken can go anywhere from $7.99 to $8.99 around here for a 6 pack. $5.99 versus $7.99 or $8.99 definitely makes it worthwhile in my book.

Holland Lager 1839
12 oz. green glass bottle, dated "05-2015 23033250214"
$5.98/ six pack @ ALDI, 8521 W Hillsborough Ave, Tampa, FL

Notes: Brewed in Holland by H. West, Maarssen. Basic Euro-pils that's clearly designed to look like Heineken, and taste somewhat the same. The difference is that there are not as many hops, leaving both the flavor and the bitterness a little low, although mainly the hop flavor suffers. It's more towards the sweet side, but it remains in balance; and there are no defects. I drank a six-pack of this and all but the last bottle was free of skunkiness - oddly, the whole six pack was just sitting in a case with two others. I guess I got lucky. Overall... inexpensive and worth what it costs.
