ALDI – SPILL THE BEANS

SPILL THE BEANS

ALDI SAY…

THE TASTE

THE VERDICT

I’ve found this range from Aldi a bit hit and miss – more hit than miss though, to be fair – and although coffee isn’t my favourite, I can appreciate this is well brewed and a good attempt at doing something a bit more interesting than your standard porters.

For me, this is a little lacking in the depth department, although you can taste the coffee and caramel etc, I’d like a bit more depth to the flavours, I can appreciate they’ve tried to be subtle with it all, but if you’re going to do flavoured beers then go the whole hog and make the flavours shine through, this kind of falls between both stools.

Is it a porter? No. Is it a coffee beer? No. Is it a chocolate treat of an ale? No. And therein lies my problem with this, its a hybrid of all 3 and ends up being an OK version of all of them, but not a great one of any of them.
