Scrapersnbeer's rating

Scrapersnbeer (1490) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2013
Grainy aroma of raw sugar and blow dryer hair. Foggy yellow with one finger head that lasts for a time. Hyper sweet taste, like hair soaking in a nutrisweet solution. Prickly body that is filling in an insubstantial way. Like an ice lager on steroids.

rosenbergh (7078) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz can. (Trader Joe’s) Greenville, SC.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Sweetness, apple juice, some play dough and mild hops in the aroma. Very cheap aroma. The flavour is at least as bad... Ewww... this is Easter European cheap lager... Very bad.

beertholomeus (825) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Pours a golden yellow with a white head. Grass, floral and grain aroma and flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Grain and floral finish. Better that expected.

"hoping for a little more, both Simpler Times beers were in the drinkable on a hot day catergory. nothing more, nothing less. not horrible, but not what i look for in a beer, or pilsner, regardless of price. A couple of the better macros are actually better than this."

Frank (2930) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2014
This stuff is kind of remarkably bad for the specific reason that it is remarkably metallic. It is clear orange golden in the glass w/ a huge foamy head. It smells kind of grainy and sweet, possibly slightly oxidized, with some grassy and earthy hop notes. It tastes like chewing on a brillo pad although, as you might imagine, the texture is a bit different this being a liquid and all. it is kind of simply sweet rather than malty and feels a bit thick and flat, which really doesn’t work for the style at all. While the initial shock of the metallic stuff wanes pretty quickly and this almost becomes drinkable, there is still a unpleasantly bitter character to the finish. It is so extremely easy to find tasty examples of this style (cheap American beer rather than Pilsener) that this stuff is just completely useless.

suprchunk (2266) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Golden pour. Small white head. Little lacing. Malt aroma with a slight vegetal note. Taste is the same with added floral notes.

TATE (304) - Lubec, Maine, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Can. Pours a golden color with a frothy white head and lots of carbonation. Apple aroma. Sweet beginning and a bit of alcohol at the end. Cheap and not good, a drain pour for me. For simpler times, I can go get a bud or colors which are much better.

stevoj (2242) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2014
60 cents a can at Trader Joe’s. Not bad for the price, clean, clear and crisp pilsner. Plenty of adjunct grains here, a little light o aroma and taste, and no finish, but great on a hot day (it’s been in the 100’s here, so it tastes good right about now)

Eberndt (187) - - JUN 28, 2014
$3.99 six pack from Trader Joes. For what it is, it’s not bad. Straw flavor and lots of adjunct taste, but still somewhat refreshing.

douglas88 (6134) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2014
12 ounce can from trader joes. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A sweet grainy nose. Light, sweet, honey, pils malt. Light. Ok. 3.99 for a six pack.

jandd1983 (2619) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was grainy with powdery malts and some bread dough. The taste was of grains, grassy hops, malts and some corn.
