3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I wasn’t expecting a whole lot but I was very pleasantly surprised--this is a startlingly good beer for the money. From a 12-oz. bottle, this pours a crystal clear orangey-amber with minimal head. No lacing. Decent grainy malt presence in the aroma. Initial taste is nutty caramel with a hint of vanilla, followed quickly by a nice finish of hops. Surprisingly well-balanced and the finish is very clean.

Hmmm...well, this isn’t terrible, but it’s also not good. Very malty and slightly sweet with only a hint of hops. Hey, at least I can say I tried it.

the price was great and appearance is pretty good. Flavor is seriously flawed. Palate is solid. Def. flaws here, but may be true to style, and far from a drain pour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s, Portsmouth, NH for a price of $1.17. Labeled as Josephs Brau. Clear light-amber color with huge white head. Toasted grainy flavor, real similar to an authentic Vienna lager. Very subtle hops and traces of caramel. Bread notes. Better than most of the other mass-produced amber lagers for sale. This makes for a very nice lawn mower brew. In fact I cracked this open after I was finish with my yard work. It’s decent.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09/23/13-12:11. It is a pretty nice looking beer with a copper-amber, golden color and a thin short-lived head, The aroma reminds me of a German Purity brewed ale with its caramel malty and sweet character. The body is medium. The taste is rather sweet with a low bitterness at the ending.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
355mL at a cookout. Brilliant clear amber, sparkling higher carbonation. Medium, barely rocky off white head. Good retention and moderate to low lacing. Nose is sticky stale candy corn, rotting banana . Taste is stale candy corn, quite soapy, hydrogen peroxide palate . Mild state grain and hefty lemon soap make this one quite bad.

Amber pour with a dense white head. Bread and toasted malt nose with some biscuit notes. Floral hops, yeast, and a light fruit character. Toasted malt, bread, and biscuit malt flavors. Some spicy and floral hops, yeast, and lightly fruity. A touch bitter and metallic on the finish.
