spilledpint (346) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s Chapel Hill Ar: Aroma is a bit off. Standard caramelly malt aromas but laced with an odd sourish vinegary/metallic note. Neither expected nor desirable. Ap:Good looking beer. Pours a clear amber with a frothy 1" head that leaves really nice lacing. T: Fairly sweet malty flavors of caramel and bread dough. Finish is mildly bittered but oddly metallic. P: Medium body, a bit sticky. Carbonation seems slightly above average. O: Strong presence of a couple of off-flavors. Along with the Bock, the weakest of the $1 TJ’s offerings that I’ve had.

Overall good--light and malty. A nice standard when you are looking for something tasty but inexpensive. Golden color, not a lot of foam, smell is nutty. Taste is a bit weak on the front end but toasty on the back.

Not bad for cheap beer but I haven't been disappointed with any trader Joes beers to date. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"i could skip this one. it IS smooth, but that’s because there’s not a whole lot going on flavor-wise, which makes it an easy to drink beer, but nothing more."

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

12 oz. bottle from the local Trader Joe's. Deep amber body with a medium tan head that fades quick and decent lacing. Smells of bread, slight hops and spice. Taste is again bread with a subtle sweetness and some ginger. Sight aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
