Very light yellow with white head and some lacing. Good carbination. This definitely got better toward the end, either because it warmed up or there was enough alcohol to take the edge off.

Pours a clear very light yellow, fizzy white head that lasts about 10 seconds and leaves no trace of ever being there. Aroma is grainy, grassy, and sweet (corn?). Flavor is super sweet start, thin middle, and no ending. Super thin palate. It may be slighly refreshing after mowing the lawn, but so is water...which is what I would chose over this.

Yes, this is a cheap beer. Pours like any other macro standard (e.g., Bud, MGD, Coors). Not much aroma, yet it is slightly sweet. Tastes better and fresher than its contemporaries. Not a great beer, but beats anything else I've tasted for $3.75/six pack

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2003
Has a light yellow color and not much of a smell. Taste is a bit more watery than your typical American Standard and finishes with little bitterness. Overall it was a bit too watery for me and I thoought it would have been a little different seeing as it is a Trader Joe's beer.

Very bland and macro tasting. A big dissapointment especially considering how cool the store is.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2003
What do you expect for 77 cents/single? Trader Joe’s s a good place to go for eclectic and organic food, but they need to go back to the drawing board in the beer department. Actually it looks like they have a few different beers I have not seen elsewhere, all brewed by some brewer in MN. Anyway, this beer is not even good enough to be considered "ordinary". Pours an insipid pale gold color with a thin white head. Aroma did not provide any insight as to what the beer had to offer. Actually neither did the flavor so I just poured the sumbitch out.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2002
Yes, yes, quite ordinary. Thought I’d have it with some spicy Chinese, might work well with the food. Certainly didn’t overpower the food. Probably wouldn’t overpower water. Only thing going for it is it didn’t have that nasty skunky hint of most bland lagers.

Like the wonderful packaging claims, this beer is not expensive, and not unusual. In fact, it tastes like a slightly better version of Icehouse.

As far as I know, only available through the eclectic and wonderful Trader Joe’s grocery stores. I had to pick up a bottle, since they were selling individuals. It’s a dead ringer for MGD. I have a cold, so that may be a little off, but there’s no need to drink this.
