Aroma is caramel, bready. Appeareance is a clear sparkling amber color, nice head dissipates to thin ring. No froth around edges. Taste is malty, caramel, toasty, with a spicy hop finish. Palate is medium. Overall, decent for a vienna lager. Nothing to write home about, but would have again if offered from a friend..

12 fl oz bottle purchased at the Trader Joe’s in Kansas City, Missouri. Best consumed before 04/02/12) printed on the label. Pour is a clear reddish copper with a 1/2 off white head. Head falls relatively quick with loud crackling. The aroma is grass, straw, sweet nutty malt. Faint touch of char mineral way in the back, barely noticeable. The taste is nutty malt, along with an odd chemical floral-like hop or yeast quality to it. After the malt, there is light artificial sweetness, then grass and hay. After it warms, flavors come together a bit. The palate is medium to light bodied, a touch under carbonated and the chemical floral bitter lingering in the finish. Just ok.

seymour (1320) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Poured bottle from Trader Joe’s into standard pint glass. Attractive, clear light-amber color with big off-white head. Good retention, even a little lacing. Subtle floral hops aroma. Sophisticated malty-sweetness resulting from bready pale, mild caramel, and some dark toasted malts. Medium body with soft, round mouthfeel. Very clean, dry, lasting lager finish. If you like mass-market dark lagers (Amberbock, Killian’s, Dos Equis amber, etc,) you’ll love Trader Joes Vienna Style Lager.
