Best Beers at Aldi
A cold brew with friends is one of life’s simple pleasures. And while you might know the most popular beer brands, it’s always fun to expand your horizons and try new drinks that aren’t just low in calories but also offer a different flavor profile. We asked a certified cicerone to blind-taste the 12 beers that are currently available at Aldi, then rank them based on flavor, aroma, pairing possibilities and overall enjoyment.
The classic pilsner, brewed in the Czech Republic, is bright, crisp and balanced—with just the right amount of interplay between sweet and bitter hops and malt. Its sunshine-gold hue and delicate mouthfeel make it a top-notch beverage, best enjoyed when super chilled.
The iconic American lager is light and refreshing, with just a hint of skunky funk to round things out. It’s the perfect choice for a day on the beach or to enjoy while watching the game with your friends.
Miller High Life
The budget brand has a lot to offer beer connoisseurs, with a light, flavorful golden pilsner base and a touch of corn to round things out. It’s also known for being a great value, and the 4.2 percent ABV is ideal for just enjoying the flavor without adding a ton of extra calories.
A favorite among craft beer enthusiasts, this hazy New England-style IPA is brewed with Mosaic, Citra and El Dorado hops for juicy grapefruit, tangerine, orange, lemongrass and pine flavors. It’s a tasty session brew that goes well with almost any meal, including pizza (especially deep-dish).
