2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour into pint glass. Aroma is very yeasty and bread. Flavor is very malty but doesn’t offer a lot of complexity. Some spice notes and vanilla in the finish. Diffentley on the sweeter side but it is nothing offensive.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Definitely one of the better Trader Joe’s own-brand beers that I’ve had. It’s a pretty down-the-middle, straightforward Heller Bock, with a great color, a medium body, a moderately-light hop bitterness, and some bite from the lager yeast.
