2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
6-pack from Trader Joe’s. Pours a golden body with a half inch of white head. Nose of grains and very subtle citrus. Flavors are basically similar to the aroma with the addition of malts and bread. Light body and medium carbonation. This wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be for a cheap sixer of brew. Very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a fantastic pilsener for a fantastic price (at Trader Joes). I find this beer to have an interesting malt profile that adds to its quaffability. Great refreshing beer!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
$3.50 for a 6 pack at Trader Joes - needed some light beer for fish fry batter and the price was right! Popped a can for myself. Everything you expect a $0.59 can of beer to be, perhaps just a tad better than you expect it to be (but not as good as the fish).

1/20/14. 12oz can from Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee. Enjoyed from the can. Muted aroma, sweet and corny, some apple and butter. Nasty flavor, corny, apples, butter. Blech.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
No retention and no lacing. Smells of sweet malt. Tastes of sweet grass. No aftertaste. A weak pilsner, but easy to drink and not offensive.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Little head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Flavor is very sweet and malty. Floral and fruity notes. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Not the crisp clean that I expect from a pilsner. Finishes sweet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Trader Joe’s. Clear yellow-gold pour. Aroma is big sweet grain, floral and corn. Tastes are a mellow mix of the expected grain and some grass hops. Corn isn’t overwhelming. Certainly not offensive (especially for 4 bucks a sixer). A fair bit better than the macro equivalent.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz can. Medium golden pour, slightly murky, with a bubbly snow white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some grassy notes, a hint of mosquito spray.
