chicagobears (468) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
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.

Aroma: sweet grainy, bready malts with faint herbal noble hop aroma Appearance: pours deep golden with a small 1/4" frothy head that quickly dissipates to half the original size. this beer is perfectly clear. Taste: malt forward lager. so all sweet malts, assertive bitterness and pronounced alcohol presence Palate: medium full body with rich creamy texture. crisp carbonation and restrained astringency Finish is smooth and dry with lingering alcohol warming Not my fave lager style but a decent rendition of the style.

12oz bottle 12/19/16 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-Pours a darker golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweetness, malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of the same with a bit of caramel on the back end. this medium bodied brew is not bad but just not my cup of tea.

thepatrickman (1272) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 7, 2016
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.

$1.09 bottle from Trader Joe’s, Charlottesville. Clear medium golden with a large off-white head. Aroma of grasses, fall leaves, tiny bit of hay. Flavor is incredibly similar, with more fall leaves and caramels than anything else. Gonnd chucnk of grassiness in the finish. Solid.
