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.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 Bottle @ home. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Creamy, toffee, caramel malty, mild, straw hoppy aroma. Fairly rich toffee, moderate caramel malty, hay, straw, grassy hoppy flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Ok.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was sweet grains, toffee notes, mostly malt forward. Flavor was caramel, sweet malts, grains. Low on hop notes, but still pretty tasty.

amber pour with a quick light head. aroma is toasted maltiness, light musty tones, caramel and nuts. Flavour is toasted malts, light body, hint of burnt sugar? Light bitterness in the finish. Overall not bad for the price.

Aroma: Yeasty , doughy, musty profile with very slight hops on the nose. Appearance: Pleasant deep copper color. Very little head retention. Taste: Moderate malty character with doughy yeast on the front pallate with slightly overly roasted notes for my tastes. Mid palate brings a bit of hops and the beer finishes with an unpleasant bitter astringency. Tastes a bit thin and mildly skunky. Palate: Forgettable. Overall: A slightly unbalanced and murky beer for a lager, even a Vienna lager. Would rate higher without the stainless steel aftertaste.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Nose is somewhat sweet with caramel up front, brown bread, and a touch of grassy, earthy hops. Pours golden amber, thin head, no lace. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel up front, brown bread in the middle, a touch of toast, and lightly spicy hops in the finish. Light and easy to drink. Not bad.

Smooth and light, had this one out at the pool in Florida. Light on the flavor with just enough to hide the alcohol. Citrus and fruit notes with a mild malt sweetness.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a light copper color with a bit of an off white head that has a bit of staying power but then does not leave behind too much lacing. Served into a pilsner glass. The nose is light with some bread and a bit of caramel malt. Not too much involved. Maybe a bit of yeasty dough. Light to medium mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Average drinkability--nothing wrong with it but nothing good about it either. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-23-2010
