This is a bitter, almost very bitter, ale. If that’s not a problem for you, this one is a nice IPA. Aside for the bitterness, this is a smooth drinking ale. There are no bad tastes and as you progress through the bottle even the bitterness becomes less noticeable. This ale has a creamier mouthfeel than a beer. For a bottled IPA, the experience here is similar to a draft IPA. Alcohol is 6.9% by volume. That’s about twice the alcohol level of the weakest beer and about 35% more than even a strong beer. Overall, this is a nice IPA. Price $6.99 – 6 pack
Aside from the fairly recent rise of the craft beer industry, most beers consumed in America are lagers. Coming from Belgium this ALDI beer of the month is also a lager, but with the usual European flavor. Generally European beers have more of everything when compared with American beers; flavor, calories, alcohol and bitterness. This lager is somewhat of a transition between the two. The bitterness is reduced making it closer, but still different, from an American lager. For Americans desiring more from their beer, this is a way to take a step in that direction. Price $6.49 – 6 pack, Calories – unspecified
This is an okay European style lager imported to the US from Holland.
