This is remarkably similar to bad Polish mocne. It is like malt liquor but not quite the same. It smells like turf grass and malt syrup and tastes sweet and metallic. There are notes of cotton candy, Cap’n Crunch and oxidation on a penny. It does have nice, creamy carbonation which is something brewers who generally make beer that tastes good have trouble achieving. In this way, this beer is something of a paradox. In other ways, this beer is just bad. Take what you want from that. Shooter42 (132) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pretty decent summer time beer for the price at Trader Joes. This beer gets very cold and goes down smooth. Flavor is fresh malty sweetness. HippieFee (425) - - JUL 6, 2014
Can - Lots of malt sweetness on this beer. Very little hops to balance the sweetness. douglas88 (9049) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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. ads135 (4587) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 28, 2014
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. Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
one of the worst beers ive ever had from one of the worst brewers ever. pure crap poured it out. Aurelius (5294) - 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. PorterPounder (7886) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2013
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.
