nice dark amber color with minimal head. Malts come through on this one very nicely. Since this is the first vienna style that I’ve ever tried it’s hard to rate this against something, but as just a beer. I would describe this a smooth and bitter. Good for a change yet I would think that there are more exciting Viennas than this.

Pours amber, great clarity, and a small fast falling white head. Hops sit in the aroma alongside a light maltiness. Kinda toastiness to the malts, but very light and a bit earthy with a very clean lager taste and balanced hop finish. Very smooth and very lightly carbonated, the low carbonation kinda left a flat tasting finish.

Bottle 12 oz. Dark amber color with medium head that diminished quickly. Medium malty aroma. Light to medium body. Medium well balanced flavor with medium smooth finish.

Bottled. U.S. Beer 28 of 31 for <a href=http://www.americanbeermonth.com> American Beer Month! Nice beery malt ’n’ hops smell when opened. Pours a civilized Vienna amber with a bubbly head. Taste is pretty clean, but perhaps a bit of phenol. Wish I knew whether Gordon Biersch used its own recipe, or did TJ’s ask for a few economy moves, like lighter malts or a quicker ferment. Make no mistake, it’s all right for a store brand beer; nice touch o’ caramel ond other toasty malts. Hop taste is pretty standard, but at least it’s there. And who knows, if one store chain tries to improve its private label drinkage, maybe others will, too.

This beer pours a clear amber color with a thin white head which dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is grains, slight malts and a hint of cherry with a subtle hint of bread. The flavor is light and fruit filled. Bready grainyness and ever so slight cherry/citrusy flavor, but overall weak palate. Even the carbonation was held in check. Smooth drinking beer, but nothing to really write home about. Pretty wet finish in most regards.. very standard!

Ckear amber with a small but lasting off-white head. Lace is rally nice. The aroma is malty, bread, caramel, and some biscuit. The flavor is bready up front then an earthiness kicks in finally followed by some hops. Medium-light body lively mouthfeel, a bit slimy. Ok and a lot better than the sorry pilsener packaged under the same name.

My last of 4 Trader Joe brews. WHile I enjoyed the caramel malty sweetness of this one, the beer was just too fizzy for me. The prickly little bubbles seemed to scour away most of the flavor. Similar to Sam Adams, not a good choice in Cleveland, the home of Great Lakes Elliiot Ness.

Dark coppery color with a nice malty nose. Nice mouthfeel, with a darker malty taste. Pretty good.

a decent vienna. a nice amber with an attractive aroma of malt. the flavor was also malty with a touch of carmel. Very respectable, and a lot more then i was expecting from Joes.

Beer pours a very bright amber clear liquid with a slight white head of fine foam. Nose is a clean anb maild malt presence with good hop balance. Flavor is hop tangy with a nice mellow malt background. Texture is fluid and full. FInish is a little more hop bitterness. Decent beer.
