A review of Perlenbacher - a decent mainstream lager; straightforward and refreshing.

Lidl have stocked one or two low-alcohol beers over the years but this, launched in 2019, is the first 0.0% beer they’ve added to their core range. Seeing as the discounters are famous for only stocking what they can sell quickly, it suggests that they’ve realised there’s a demand for alcohol-free drinks and it’s not going away.

In Perlenbacher 0.0%, they’ve given us a perfectly decent mainstream lager. If you’re looking for fancy craft beer with hoppy notes and florid undertones, look elsewhere. If you like your beer straightforward and refreshing, give it a go. Well-chilled, it will slake a thirst, cool you down on a summer’s day, or wash down a curry.
