It wasn't that the beer was off; it wasn't displaying any recognisable faults, it simply hadn't been stored with love and care and simply wasn't nice. BrewDog Lifeless Pony Membership - excellent at 3.8%, an increasingly mainstream beer that wasn't robust sufficient to make me lose concentrate on my work - £5.20 a pint. I'm used to having to argue with the bar staff if I've to take a pint of beer back as a result of it's off.
Maybe a number of years in the past they have been a bit extra special but there's way more selection when it comes to craft beer pubs now. As they are shopping for, admittedly, some very good beer in massive bulk they are doubtless getting some massive reductions which just aren't obtainable to smaller craft institutions.

That beer was Wernesgruener Pils, an actual classy German Pils, alas not stocked within the UK. I'd recommend that Aldi discover a respectable German import once more in 33cl bottles, or re-stock Wernesgruener.
