I tried the Das Helle last year and its an ok lager, not tried the wheat beer yet. Their normal wheatbeer, schofferhofer, they have for £1.25 is pretty good, not flip top though
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C

For some reason Aldi are not selling this beer in Scotland, altho they have in the past. I'm told the wheat beer is pretty good.

Just got a half dozen to try out. Anyone know if this is a one off or will they have them all the time?

It's just seasonal I think

They had a schwarzbier for the lat two years instead of that wheat beer, it was quite nice

They seem to do this offer every September but I think this is the first year they've included a wheat

Thought I'd just add to this post as I found these bottles of beer with the flip top at Aldi again this weekend at £1.79 each. As I'm just getting back into home brew again but looking at bottling rather than using a keg, these will come in handy for me.

My LHBS sell these flip top bottles for £1.50 ish so even if the contents are mediocre (they are nothing special) then it is still a pretty good deal as these bottles are not widely available here.
The Schwarz dark lager was the best of the bunch for me.

Agree with anthonyuk, the best of the three is the dark lager. Wheat second. Kev.

I actually think they are reasonable examples of the style. The naturtraub was the best for me, the wheat is okay but not outstanding and the schwarz better than the helles.
