There are times when an ice-cold beer fits the bill. This is an easy-drinking brew that’s reliably tasty without being fussy. It’s a straightforward beer with good hop flavor without it being over the top. This speaks of a simpler time when you could order a beer, and they wouldn’t bring you a full menu. They’d just bring a good beer at a good price. Life can be complicated, but your beer does not have to be. Enjoy the taste of Simpler Times.

Trader Joe’s, cost a buck. Pours a bright orange color with a small white head. A light grainy nose, not the best aroma. The flavor reminds me a lot of cheap cider, bubbly, some sweet husky grains, slightly terrible, honey. OK. Drinkable. Longest day of the year.

I bought this at Trader Joe’s in DC pretty much to find out what $4 for a six pack would taste like. I wasn’t surprised. Sweet, canned corn, medium bodied and rough to get down.

I wasnt going to rate the Trader Joes house brand lager, but this was just so bad, so very terribly bad. Like up there for the worse beer I’ve ever had bad. Lots of malts, no balance, too sweet. But at least its 6.2% abv for dirt cheap? I’ll factor that into my overall score, but that’s it.

Honestly $3.50 for a six pack? I can’t turn that down. If you want to get a cheap beer, then you can do much worse.

Aurelius (5200) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Lightly sweet malt aroma. Clear yella, bad can, whitish head. Eh, not terrible. Sweetish, lightly astringent, straw flavors. Medium-light body, lightly bitter finish. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz can. Medium gold pour, light white head. Fresh lake water aroma with some corn syrup notes. Flavor has some corn syrup notes, some buttery accents, a bit of graininess. Smooth mouthfeel. Better than expected.

A regular beer. Plain and simple. You knew exactly what you were purchasing and you got it. Not too bad, definitely like and usual. No outstanding characteristics.

12oz can. Referring to the description, I’d rather have the full menu, thanks. What an interesting niche market that’s forming - craft-y! It is pretty simple, and this yellow pale lager has a ’fine’ aroma and appearance, but the taste isn’t there for me...there’s something unpleasant in the aftertaste that reminds me of malt liquor. 6.2% is too strong for this type of beer without better ingredients. Drinkable, though
