I was wandering around Lidl doing the weekly shop recently when out of the corner of my eye I spot something nostalgic. Something very nostalgic indeed. I was instantly drawn to the holy grail of cartoon beer much like how Homer Simpson is. Duff Beer! I would say I was shocked to see such a thing in Lidl, but realistically we’ve all seen far more bizzare items in the middle aisle. According to Untapped it is brewed by Fizz Beverage in Germany. It is, of course, a lager and it comes in at 4.9% ABV. My expectations are low, but lets be honest, I didn’t buy this expecting the next innovation in the beer world.
Pours an incredibly clear gold colour with a fairly small head. Has a basic malty sweet, lager aroma. It tastes like your classic bog standard lager. There’s a little bit of sweetness mixed in with a little bit of bitterness. It’s easy drinking and went down a treat ice cold.
A quick note on the can art: It pretty iconic and while not an exact replica of Duff cans from the Simpsons you know exactly what they are going for. they’ve even gone for the Simpsons letter font!
There isn’t really much for me to say about this other than it’s a lager and it tastes okay. In all honesty despite it being a gag beer, I’ve paid a lot more for beers I’ve liked a lot less! It really is your typical lager but I enjoy these fun little beers. It’s also nice reminder to not take the craft beer world quite so seriously.
Thanks for reading! Cheers!
