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.

Panzuriel (1295) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2005
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.

Crash (531) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Golden color with a little white head. Aroma was a bit strange ranging from wet grass/straw to some hints of something sweet. Good taste but, nothing real special.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours a light auburn amber color. Small white head dissapates to a film. Very grainy aromatics, with perhaps a whisper of malt. Very grainy flavor, interjected with a subdued toastiness. Any hops I couldn’t detect through the haze of skunkiness. Mouthfeel would be rather smooth if not for the skunk.

fordest (1972) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 20, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a thin quickly diminishing head with little lacing to speak of. Aromas of bread and malt. Flavor was only slightly hoppy. Mostly malt some roastiness. Finish was pretty smooth.

JMerritt (1786) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Dark golden with a small, white head that is mostly diminishing. Grainy straw/hay aroma, some caramel, but mostly grains. Toasty malt and grainy flavor with a bit more caramel, but rather bready and a tad stale. Lively carbonated with a dry finish. Aftertaste of stale tea.

Reid (1873) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Nice clear, bright amber coloured lager, with an excellent creamy off white head, good lace down the glass as I drink. Rather pleasant aroma of hops ,nicelly balanced by the aroma of caramel malts. Quite a good tastinf Vienna, balanced ..the malts hit the tongue first, caramel,toffeeish even in flavour, then a nice lasting hoppy bitterness. Average mouthfeel for the syle..but still nice. Very drinkable and a good try at a vienna..nice, i would have again.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 7, 2005
Brown/gold with a large off-white head. Smell is vegetable hops, skunk and toasted bread. Taste is malty, abundant flavor. Roasted/toasted hops. Mismatched palate was not that enjoyable for me. So far everyone has said what a good value this beer is and I personally have to disagree. It is priced equal to its competition (Budweiser, Miller, Rolling Rock) because it is similar in its crappy taste.
