Brewed in Prague for Aldi.
When I noticed the other day that Aldi did bottled beers for under £2.00 each I just just had to at least give them a try.
This Pilsener pours a nice straw colour with a head that looks great for approximately thirty seconds before disappearing to nothing.
The aroma is soft and subtle but definitely there, with some sweet caramel, spices and a low metallic yeast buzz.
On taking a drink there’s a nice fizz along with super soft burned sugar caramel, sweet with bitter edges, but it only juts holds up as the wash of water comes in very quickly.
There are hops here too and they’re floral and peppery but again just too fleeting.
So what we have here is a beer that’s not the best you’ll ever taste.
Not by a long chalk.
But on a warm Sunday lunchtime with £1.00 in your pocket you could do far worse.
