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.

This isn’t great but it isn’t bad either. In the glass, it is a transparent garnet brown. It’s head is of fine bubbles and leaves little spots of lace on the glass. This is a solid dark lager w/ nice caramel and toasted grain notes from the malt. There is a hint of cheapo dark beer wierdness going on--never know what to call this, kinda reminds me of the smell of the ocean in a strange way and also Coca Cola--but it’s not too bad and the beer is overall quite pleasant. This is medium to full bodied w/ fine but vigorous carbonation and really a nicely drinkable beer. I would not call this a stellar example of the style but I think it achieves what it is trying to achieve so good enough.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a glossy somewhat dark red color with a one finger bubbly white head. There was some indifferent messy lacing stringing itself all over the place. The smell had a burnt / somewhat dirt-like weird caramel maltiness. The taste was basically the same with a super dry weird somewhat sweet maltiness. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it - depending upon how one looks at this. The carbonation was there and good for the style and for me. Overall, decent beer nothing to go bonkers about. Just okay.

Trade José Dark Premium Beer has a thin, cream-colored head, a clear, reddish-brown appearance, some bubble streams on the side of the glass, and almost no lacing left on the glass. The aroma is nonexistent. Taste is of a slightest little sweetness, but also pretty much nothing. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Trade José Dark Premium Beer finishes easy drinking, refreshing, and flavorless. RJT

Nice red-copper color, thin beige head. Second the aroma of pennies. Very mild, tastes a little malty, with hint of stone fruit/apricots. Cheap.

11.2oz twist off bottle drom jcwattsrugger. Poured a clear thinner reddish/brown with a smaller to average foamy super light beige head. Aroma of pennies, rust, chocolate, grains, dark fruits. Initial body starts off watery then the strong carbonation pushes everything into the fuller creamy realm, odd. Flavor of grains, sweet medium to darker toast, hint of chocolate, roasty.

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.
