There are times when an ice-cold beer fits the bill. This is an easy-drinking brew thatís reliably tasty without being fussy. Itís a straightforward beer with good hop flavor without it being over the top. This speaks of a simpler time when you could order a beer, and they wouldnít bring you a full menu. Theyíd just bring a good beer at a good price. Life can be complicated, but your beer does not have to be. Enjoy the taste of Simpler Times.

Faint aroma of corn, grains, and sweet malt. Deep yellow color with a tan head. Off sweatness, almost artificial up front. No bitterness to blance. Undrinkable.

This is remarkably similar to bad Polish mocne. It is like malt liquor but not quite the same. It smells like turf grass and malt syrup and tastes sweet and metallic. There are notes of cotton candy, Capín Crunch and oxidation on a penny. It does have nice, creamy carbonation which is something brewers who generally make beer that tastes good have trouble achieving. In this way, this beer is something of a paradox. In other ways, this beer is just bad. Take what you want from that.

Pretty decent summer time beer for the price at Trader Joes. This beer gets very cold and goes down smooth. Flavor is fresh malty sweetness.

Can - Lots of malt sweetness on this beer. Very little hops to balance the sweetness.

Trader Joeís, cost a buck. Pours a bright orange color with a small white head. A light grainy nose, not the best aroma. The flavor reminds me a lot of cheap cider, bubbly, some sweet husky grains, slightly terrible, honey. OK. Drinkable. Longest day of the year.

I bought this at Trader Joeís in DC pretty much to find out what $4 for a six pack would taste like. I wasnít surprised. Sweet, canned corn, medium bodied and rough to get down.

I wasnt going to rate the Trader Joes house brand lager, but this was just so bad, so very terribly bad. Like up there for the worse beer Iíve ever had bad. Lots of malts, no balance, too sweet. But at least its 6.2% abv for dirt cheap? Iíll factor that into my overall score, but thatís it.

Honestly $3.50 for a six pack? I canít turn that down. If you want to get a cheap beer, then you can do much worse.
