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.

Nice darker amber in color, with a nice mix of malts to give it a sweet taste. I think this will make an excellent warm weather beverage. At this price from Joes, why would anyone want to buy Buttweiser???

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2006
12oz bottle pours copper with a tall creamy offwhite head that stayed pretty well and laced the sides of the glass well. Aromas of sweet caramel malts, a touch of brown sugar, and a touch of roasted malts. Flavor is mostly sweet caramel malts, but there is also a touch of brown sugar there as well. Palate is smooth creamy and quite drinkable. This was the best of the 4 TJ beers I tried yesterday. Reminded me a lot of Elliot Ness from Great Lakes..

Brilliantly clear copper body with a tall off-white head. Malty caramel aroma. Solidly malty, some light toast, nutty. Nice round bodied Vienna. Not bad at all.

Pours golden amber, thin head, no lace. Nose is somewhat sweet with light hop earthy hop up front, brown bread, and a touch of grassy,. 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.

stonesean (3) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2009 does not count
Pretty copper color. Exactly the color I want to see in a vienna. The nice head, but it vanishes quickly. Big malty aroma and flavor, but not the best finish in the world. A bit too sweet. For the price $6.00 for a six pack, you can’t possibly go wrong. I wouldn’t be mad at anyone who brought some of this by to a party...

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2009
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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours a crystal clear, amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, foamy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is malty sweet with some caramels and toasty bread. A touch of clean yeast with a light floral fruit and earthy hop. Flavor is pretty solid. Caramel with a light sweetness, toasty bread, floral fruits, a light grain, and a nice grassy hopping that dries this with a light bitterness and a touch of malty sweetness. Medium length aftertaste following a very smooth, light-medium, clean body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice Vienna. Solid flavor, very easy drinking, and well balanced. A nice surprise.
