For the price, this is not a bad beer. I think I paid $5 per six pack. The flavor is clean, with a sweet malty finish. I would buy again for a cheap beer for game day when you don’t want anything too heavy.

Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. A light sweet malty nose. The flavor is light cherries, dry toffee, cola. Pretty decent. Reminds me of Negra modelo.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Malty and kind of trashy. A little on the sweet side. Pours dark amber without much head or lacing. Sweet finish, and some sourness. Bottle.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours translucent brown, like iced pekoe tea. Smells like boiled cabbage. Tastes like any cheap, mass produced adjunct lager, filtered through charcoal. This is piss.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle->lager. Clear amber with bare offwhite head. A: nutty, malty. T: sweet malt, some bitter grains. Metallic aftertaste brings down an otherwise surprisingly decent cheap TJ beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pretty dark pour for a "Vienna" -- roasty brown; firm standing head. Nutty edge throughout, woody aroma, and drinks with a malty, caramel edge. Pretty even keeled, cleanly made, quaffable. (#5309, 11/3/2013)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head. Molasses aroma. Pretty big malt up front with a raisony flavor and hint of hop bitterness at the end. Seems true to style and okay overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee. Fl - Trader Joe’s - 11.2 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has some light bubble gum notes, a hint of plastic. Flavor has a hint of nuttiness, some bubble gun sweetness, a touch of pipe tobacco, caramel sweetness in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Does in a pinch.
