There are times when an ice-cold beer fits the bill. This is an easy-drinking brew thats reliably tasty without being fussy. Its 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 wouldnt bring you a full menu. Theyd 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.

It reminds me of the simpler times. Times when all beers were 6.2% abv. Times when beers eschewed fancy cans. Times when beers made you shudder every other sip. Im drinking it now, and I feel like Robert Deniro in The Deerhuner. Before the war that is.

From a can with friends at a swim party. Just a cool relaxing beer when you need to chill. Especially for the price

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is a little cotton candy and caramel. Taste is fairly sweet, though with a good balance from lemon bitterness. Texture is softer. It favors a little sweet, but still nice.

12 oz can, Ann Arbor, MI, USA via Trader Joes. Pale gold. No head. Visible carbonation. Bready aroma. Some faint citrus. Sweet, balanced with honey and light white pepper. Medium finish. Given the price and aim of the beer Id say its great.

Can from Trader Joes in Campbell, CA. Aroma is malts, honey, artificial caramels? This is some roof stoof-age and goes fittingly with all things "Pruneyard".

This is your basic bad beer. Basically. No real taste here, I buy it usually because of how cheap it is, $4 a 6-pack. A pale straw color, no head, medium carbonation. No real sweetness to it, because no real taste to it. Very bland. Corn, hay, grass, ground, mulch, rot, nothing to taste.

Trader Joes getting into the malt liquor business I see. Very sweet, pretty strong alcohol, no balance. Kinda like a malt likka with a bit of that harsh alcohol taste, but the problem here is that with this much sugar and harshness it needs to be stronger to balance that off into a plausible malt liquor. So its neither a good swill lager nor a good malt liquor. Its like when you try for a joke that isnt that funny to begin with, and then you land it so poorly people get mad at you.

Another crappy beer by Minhas. I dont trust Minhas Craft Brewery with any of their beers.
