12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of 17 Feb, 2015.

Deep clear amber color; excellent clarity; decent head; limited lacing.

Aroma: a nice mix of malts and hops with a touch of caramel. Malts slightly dominate.

Flavor: follows the aroma although the hops and malts are more in balance. Very good bitter-sweet balance.

Feel: medium body and near medium carbonation.

O: a quite respectable version of the style, even ignoring the low cost.

Appearance - Pours clear and with a bright copper hue to go along with a finger width off-white head. Fair retention leads to a broken layer of surface suds and a thin ring around the edge. Leaves a fair amount of lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell - Bready aroma. Hints of caramel. Mild spice hop aroma in the distance.

Taste - Mild but flavorful. Bready malt with touches of caramel. Hops come through faintly, with a touch of spice, light grass and a leafy character. Clean finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with crisp, lively carbonation. Slightly silky. Goes down easy before a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Pretty good Vienna here if you aren't expecting the world, and there'd be no reason to considering the price. Bargain deal from Trader Joe's. I'd consider buying it again, though if I'm being honest it wouldn't even be close to my first choice at TJ's.
