"i could skip this one. it IS smooth, but that’s because there’s not a whole lot going on flavor-wise, which makes it an easy to drink beer, but nothing more."

12 ounce bottle from TJs. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A sweet light fruity nose. Toast, caramel, light Pils malt. Smooth and drinkable. Light toast, berries, big sweet malty caramel. OK.

Ughsmash (7407) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Bottled. Poured clear reddish-orange with a fluffy beige head about as tall as the liquid. Nose was quite yeasty with biscuit and caramel maltage as well... clean and kinda boring, but not bad. Flavor was of smooth pulled caramel, biscuits, and pils malts with herbal bitterness and faint citrus at the back-end. Smooth, lighter-bodied middle with a moderately tart and bitter finish. This was not at all complex, but was most definitely drinkable.

Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin coating of wispy white head. Sweet authentic toasty Vienna malty aroma has some German lager yeast character. Starts with a mild light caramel sweetness along with some slightly earthy noble hops and a drier crisp finish. Fairly true to style, but rather boring.

Fiancee’s mom picked this up for me randomly while traveling in Chicago and I didn’t take good notes.

Had as JosephBrau Vienna .. . tan amber .. mild head, pretty nice lacing .. . tin molasses and horse maple hay .. . light distracting mouthfeel .. . has a mild annoying back taste to it but other than that, decent for a vienna .. . . remember, when passing a running chainsaw to your buddy- the knife rule doesn’t apply...

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of GregClow. This is the third Trader Joe’s beer in a row that we tried and I did not like the other two so I was not expecting much. This one was pleasantly better. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Like the other Trader Joe’s beers the aroma is too sweet, like sugary malt, but it’s a little more balanced here. Flavour of caramel malt with a bitter aftertaste. My favourite of the Trader Joe’s beers but still not a personal favourite.

Bottle split with pat. Pours a hazy reddish amber body with medium white lacing. Aroma is nut and malts. Taste is smooth malt, some notes of nut.

Bottle pours light amber, tinted orange, medium off-white fizzly head, spotty lacing, with very light carbonation.   Subtle aroma of cereal and oats, but also somewhat malty.   Fairly decent malt palate, slightly sweet.   Cant help but notice the emergence of a grainy/corny aroma as it warms a bit.   Body and mouthfeel seem fairly average.   At least not bad for a Trader Joe brew.   Malty finish, but also somewhat light and quick.   Fairly clean however.   Not an Eliot Ness, but not bad.

PorterPounder (6390) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Pours a light copper with a soft, slight off white head that leave a thin trail of lacing. Aroma has some light molasses accents, some nuttiness. Flavor leans to the sweet side, some caramel, some molasses notes, a touch of brown sugar. Mouthfeel has a decent texture to it. Not bad.
