Looks, smells and tastes like a Vienna lager. Not a lot of complexity or overly impressive mouthfeel, but a good introduction to the style, very drinkable and priced right.

Since the only real examples of Vienna lagers are from Mexico now, I found this to be an exciting beer. Malty with some residual caramel sweetness yet still very drinkable. Good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BierMeHoos (101) - Maryland, USA - AUG 12, 2014
12 oz. bottle. The nose was hints of yeast and malt driven esters, toastiness, caramel and smooth maltiness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was good malt content, some lingering quality to the moderate. Very average beer but not in a bad way. Everyday drinking beer.

12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours coppery amber on the glass. Toasted bready flavor with a hint of citrus hops. Basic toasted malt aftertaste. Overall, its a decent brew but not too exciting.

Bottle, amber pour, white head, nose is lacking, some bitter, taste is average, some bitter, some malts, but nothing worth bragging about.

Strong carmel, almost stoutish. Sweet and mellow. Brown sugar finish. Not bad at all

Joseph Brau Vienna Style Lager has a thin-to-medium, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, and a light molasses. Taste is of those elements, with caramel malt, and light hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and prickly, and Joseph Brau Vienna Style Lager finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Bottle from pikapp327. Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is a little grainy and caramel. Taste is lightly bitter, toast, and grain.

Orange/light copper pour, willowy off white head. Nose is malt. Middle is sweet bread. Finish is light, with a slight wack of hops. OK

Decent looking but mostly bland Vienna. Nice creamy head, but aroma and taste are weak, and musty. My first experience with Trader Joe’s house brews. Not impressed.
