True to the lager tradition, Name Tag Lager is light-bodied and full-flavored. Unlike some other inexpensive lagers, Name Tag, brewed for us in Wisconsin, is an all-malt beer, with no rice, no corn – no fillers of any kind. We were so impressed by the value of this beer (value = quality + price) that we put our name on it. Well, we put our name tag on it, anyway. Keep a six-pack of Name Tag in the fridge for those hotter-than-Hades days, when the only thing that will bring refreshment is an icy cold beer with your name on it.

1/26/14. 12oz can from Trader Joe’s, labeled as "Name Tag Lager." I’m sure it’s fizzy and golden. Whatevs. Plain appley aroma, some hay, corny. Plain flavor, not as bad as the aroma had me thinking, corny, light apple, hay. Meh.

stevoj (2016) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bought as "Name Tag" from Trader Joe’s. Pours clear pale golden, with thin white head. Sweet malt, and corn on the aroma, taste is pure sweet grains, with a fading sweet finish. Finishes fast. Somewhat watery mouth feel. A pale lager through and through, but refreshing on these hot summer days.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet malty nose. The flavor is intensely sweet corn, grains, sugars. Ok. Not very good.

12oz can, from my local Trader Joe’s. 59 cents. Shared with b3shine. Clear golden color. Minimal white head. No lace sticks. Kind of an acidic, lightly tart, corn-like notes. Funky in a bad way, with a acidic bite. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, not as bad in the taste as in the aroma. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Not a good aroma, but reasonably smooth and not much bite in the finish. Solid, good for the price, beats macro-lagers.

Can to half-pint glass (share by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a transparent gold with white head that quickly dissipates into thin lacing. Smells semi-sweet and lightly hoppy with notes of lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only not as balanced or robust. Average on the palate. Okay for what it is.

There’s no corn in this? Odd; I taste corn. And seaweed. And tin. And sticky malt. And that’s about it.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Clear, yellow beer, quickly dissipating white head. Can that looks like a prop off a sitcom. Sweetish, cheap malt aroma. Sweet, next-to-no hops, slightly astringent. Medium body, astringent, starchy finish. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

PorterPounder (5367) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz can (labeled as Name Tag Classic). Pours a sparkling light golden with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is metallic and dull. Flavor has a hint of honey sweetness, a touch of metal, some pale lager blandness. Mouthfeel is industrial and thin. Worth the $0.67 I paid for it.

BucannonXC5 (802) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Type: 12-oz. can Glass: 0.5L stein From: Trader Joe’s is La Mesa (San Diego), Calif. Price: $3.49 for a 6-pack Purchased: Sept. 26, 2013 Consumed: Sept. 26, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey golden clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. Decent amount of layered foamy lacing along the sides. Above average retention on the top most of the way down. Smelled caramel, banana, kiwi, Circus Peanuts, faint butterscotch, bubblegum, butter, grape and gloves. Tasted like a watered down version of the smell with a gross aftertaste. Watery versions of banana, kiwi, grape, Circus Peanuts, corn, hay, bread and butter. Can’t put my finger on the aftertaste, but it’s not pleasant at all. Light body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Watery, abrupt finish.
