Recently BotF wrote about a new addition to the Aldi range of beers that had a remarkable resemblance to a high profile Australian beer. Well, Aldi’s done it again, paying homage to one Europe’s biggest beers – Stella Artois. Sainte Etienne is made in France no doubt to Aldi’s exacting standards. It is a 4.8% lager that is instantly forgettable. Coincidentally, one of the lads I am away with had bought a case of Stella with him. I slipped him a Sainte Etienne and he did not notice the difference at first.
Hopefully, Aldi will “pay homage” to a decent beer next time.
