Solid lager for a hot day. Clean flavor, light malt and hops make it easy to drink more than a few. No after-taste. Good offering at Trader Joe’s.

Not much to say here. An utterly dull lager characterized by an absence of taste and flavor. Medium head.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Green apple-ish, sweet, vegetal macro lager aroma. Light flavor: Green apple is pretty dominant. Some sweetness; no malt flavor otherwise. Low bitterness... Some of the macro lager flavor, too. Seems like pretty low carbonation, and there’s a subtle but weird "chalky" kind of feel.

Apparently this beer used to be made in Holland but is now made in Germany and distributed through Holland. Any way you look at it, it’s cheap lager, a decent 5% beer to pour down your throat in the summer. Smells of grass and sweet malt. Golden appearance with a short lived white head. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. I don’t sense the metallic taste. Mouth feel is light, soft, watery, and creamy. Not bad for the price at Trader Joe’s, and cans are convenient.

So, my rating might be skewed by the great affordability. Then again, I toned it down intentionally so my rating might be accurate. Trader Joe’s special! 6-pack for $5.49 for 16 ouncers! I mean, this beer screams lawnmower, but I have no lawn, just an unquenchable thirst. And when it gets hot, and I look at my wallet (or cold and I look at my wallet), those white cans call me name. And hey, they are cans so you can take the where bottles are not allowed!

Peter’s Brand has a thick, slightly off-white head, a clear, bubbly, deep golden appearance, and a heavy lacing sheen left behind on the glass. The aroma is of pungent, buttery, malt, and the flavor is of sweet, biscuit-like malt, grassy hops, and subdued sugars. Bitterness is appropriate. Mouthfeel is tending towards light and watery, and Peter’s Brand finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and enjoyable. For a private label brand (and, for beer in general) this is a good one. RJT

500 ml can. Clear gold with a small ring of bubbles. Faint aroma of soured corn, grass, citrus and honey. Taste is the same with some spice, metal, and toasted corn husk. Light body is sweet and has medium carbonation.
