Well, I don’t know what a Vienna lager is supposed to taste like but bought it based on its statement of having a "smooth malty flavor", which is a type of flavor I like in beer. I found it very enjoyable, and feel that it does have a smooth malty flavor with just a little hops in there for some zing. It seems rich, and it seems to have some character to it, but it is not at all expensive. It does remind me somewhat of the european Marzen style which I’ve enjoyed before, but found to be a little overbearing. This trader joe’s vienna lager works fine for me for sure.
Amber with off white head - Malt aroma with some hints of caramel - Malt body with some caramel flavours and there is hints of hops and bitterness - Malt goes into the finish - This was ok MattH (921) - California, USA - APR 1, 2016

Bottle, 12 fl oz, Trader Joe’s, Fort Lauderdale. Overall decent, a bit watery though. Metalchopz (3674) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
Purchased at Trader Joe in Vegas. Pours an amber colour with a very slight haze. The head is warm, lasts a good time and creates thick lacing. The aromas are mild but with a nice blend of cereal, caramel and hints of fruity malts. The taste is a little sweeter, fruitier, but still malty. Hints of spices, decent bitterness. A little apples. Not a bad beer overall and better than their Bohemian lager.

Clear, dark amber with a bit of white head. Aroma of caramel malt, but a little bitter. Flavor is okay, but too bitter and astringent a finish. markas101 (2529) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2015

Bottle at a BOSS meeting thanks to Raith. Pours amber with a very creamy, off white head. Aroma is slightly malty and flavor follows. Watery body. Decent beer. Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2015
Light bronze, with a nice sized sturdy white head. Smells like sweet molasses and toast. Flavor is nicely sweet, with more molasses, some more toast, and some subtle smokey notes. Not bad...
