3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. JosephsBrau label. Gift from a neighbor. Thanks, Sid! Pours a clear tea-orange with a finger of off-white head that settles unevenly. Aroma of sweet and toasted malts, crackers, husky grains, and brown sugar. Flavor is pretty much the same. Some bitterness. Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a toasty, crisp mouthfeel. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is a commerical beer made to mass production and low costs and the taset was there. Skunky smell no hops had a rich malt base had a metallic type tatse. Good head and a dark copper color. Like the sharp initial taste but it does nto stay with you at all. Very overpowering malt flavor. Too roasty to style and not enough hops. (Nobel Hops)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Crispy caramel nose with nice earthy hops and light nuttiness. Deep amber pour with a soapy, yellow-tinged off-white head. Malty, slightly syrupy taste, caramel with herbal hops. Toffee with a touch of toast. Very, very crisp taste on a medium body. Not bad!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.00 at Trader Joe’s in Roswell, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep amber-orange body with an inch of ivory-toned foam.
Smell: Sweet-scented, moderately fruity nose, smelling of honey, light caramel, and leafy hops overlaying delicately toasted, grainy baked goods.
Taste: Sweet, sugar-toned maltiness of caramel and honey-brushed coarse bread and biscuits. Slight baked apple fruitiness. A late-arriving hint of grainy Pils malt. Spicy, minimally earthy hops with a little bit of balancing bitterness. The grainy Pils malt grows a smidge bolder as this warms. Finishes drying, crispish
Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied. Medium carbonation. Very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A dollar won’t get you much these days, but what it will get you is a decent, sweet, cost-effective brew for these tough, bitter times.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of rich caramelly malt with just a hint of earthy hops. A copper pour with very light white head and lace. Sweet malty flavor a hint of abv and a very subtle bitter. A bit overly carbonated for me. But pretty nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is papery and grainy with dust grass and chocolate. The appearance is amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a nice finish. The palate is smooth. Overall not the best beer but close to OK.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent smelling amber lager. really not that bad of an amber. Next to the bock, the best of the TJ beers I’ve had. A nice blend of malts and hops.
