1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This beer mocks you for expecting a range of choice? It smells sweet, corny and sugary, and almost estery as if it is in on some cruel joke about false style-expectations. Effervescent yellow beer, initial head collapses fast. Apple core sweet taste, hairy aftertaste. Described as ’lawnmower beer’ it also has the consistency of a cola. Take a pass on this one.

Cereal grains with some candy/vanilla sweetness, but heavy on the corn. Pure malt throughout, not a sign of any hops. Slick and sweet.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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, Cap’n 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 Joe’s, 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 Joe’s in DC pretty much to find out what $4 for a six pack would taste like. I wasn’t 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 I’ve ever had bad.
Lots of malts, no balance, too sweet. But at least its 6.2% abv for dirt cheap? I’ll factor that into my overall score, but that’s it.

Honestly $3.50 for a six pack? I can’t turn that down. If you want to get a cheap beer, then you can do much worse.
