Nice malt aroma presence up front followed distantly by hops. Head was fine beaded but not rocky and somewhat short-lived. Beautiful medium to dark amber color - very pretty beer. Good malt initial flavor followed, again by restrained hop. A tad metallic in the finish but a sweet aftertaste. I hoped for a bigger mouthfeel but was disapointed. Still, very drinkable and at $4.99 for a six-pack of 12’s, a good beer for the price.

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.

Poured into a pint glass with golden amber color and small fizzy offwhite head. Nose is toasty, nuts and light red fruits all being very subdued. Initial mouthfeel is crisp,sharp and light bodied displaying nuts, red berry and caramel. Mid palate to finish is bitter hops that are somewhat astrigent. Palate duration is average. Minor head retention. Drinkable, extremely light.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Mildly hazy amber with a medium beige slowly fading head. Light aroma of caramel and light hops. Taste of caramel, malt and grains with some hop characteristics to it. A touch too carbonated and semi thin and bland.

Narnad (1495) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Pours a red copper color with a thin white head. Aroma has sweet, fruity malty note with some caramel and light toasted malt notes. Flavor is a grape and apple fruitiness with bitter malt bite in the middle and finishes with a smooth, watery caramel note. Beer is a bit light and has a low carbonation. Overall not too much there as it is a bit light on the malty notes. This beer is an absolute miss in my opinion.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Aroma is caramel, bready. Appeareance is a clear sparkling amber color, nice head dissipates to thin ring. No froth around edges. Taste is malty, caramel, toasty, with a spicy hop finish. Palate is medium. Overall, decent for a vienna lager. Nothing to write home about, but would have again if offered from a friend..

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head that dissipates rapidly with no lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet, malty, bubblegum. Taste is medium sweet, lightly roasted malt, a bit of caramel. Light bitter finish. Not too bad for a hot day.
