Holland Lager 1839 Beer
Product: Holland Lager 1839
Price: $4.99 for Six Pack
What we have here is Aldi's version of Dutch beer. It is actually made by Bavaria Brouwerij of the Netherlands, so it is authentic Dutch beer. By looking at the green-silver bottle you can tell it is trying to compete with the Grolsch's and Heinekens of this world. And it's doing a fairly decent job at it. First of all I have to let you in on a little secret. The bottles of the six-pack are European sized, meaning they are slightly smaller than their American counterparts. You only get 11.2 ounces rather than 12.
The beer itself tastes a little less hoppy than the Dutch mainstream products with just a hint of bitterness. It's not an outstanding product but it still tastes good on a hot summer day. And the price is unbeatable for a true import beer.
