Beer Review 505: Aldager Amber Lager, State of Brewing ALDI's Newest Beer!



Beer Review 505: Aldager Amber Lager, State of Brewing,Waunakee, Wisconsin.
Purchased: Aldi, Findlay, Ohio.
Brewery: https://drinkoctopi.com/

I picked up a six-pack of Aldi’s newest beer offering. I paid $8.99 for a six pack of this Amber Lager, which comes in at 5% ABV. It poured a little lighter than I had expected but still had a deep gold color with a hint of orange. This was crystal clear and had a soapy head that dissipated rather quickly. The nose was malty with caramel notes and not much else. This was relatively light bodied with sweet caramel leading the way. It also had an underlying hop bitterness to counterbalance the malt. While not the best beer I have ever consumed, it wasn’t bad for the price.

  1. I kinda like this stuff… Is it possible it's trying to be Sam Adams Boston Lager? It has that similar caramely taste with a bit of noble hop bitterness (though perhaps I detect some American hops in there?), and it's described as Amber in color…hmmm

  2. Because of our booze distribution, we don't really have a scene like this, with these sorts of knock-off beers being sold from major grocery places. Super interesting to hear about. This one sounds alright! Thanks for this review TK!

  3. 🎵I saw a mouse. Where? There on the stair. Where on the stair? Right there🎵 I can always tell when it's a twist-off cap; if my hand starts bleeding, it's not a twister 🤣

  4. Great review! I was just at Aldi a couple of days ago and didn't see this. I guess we don't have it in our area yet. It doesn't sound like I'm necessarily missing out on anything. Cheers 🍻!

  5. Sounds decent enough, especially for the price point. I haven't checked out any of ALDI's beer selections, but I've grabbed stuff from Trader Joe's before. I'll have to give it a look at some point. BTW, TK, when you say you're not an IPA fan, is that just in general? Meaning, American IPAs, New England IPAs, Milkshake IPAs, etc.? Just wondering.

    Nice review, dude.

    Cheers!

  6. You know it's funny I didn't think Aldi sold beer but I guess i never really looked 😅 It seems like you described that most of their stuff is kinda average 🙂👍🏻 Thanka for the review TK🙂👍🏻 Enjoy your week 😉 Mark and Michelle
