I tried this out because I like Trader Joe's other products and I think they only carry quality stuff, but their beer only can be described as "passable." It has an average taste but nothing distinctive about it. Its also not as clean and crisp as a pilsner should be.

Number 4 in my mystery sixer thanks to Trader Joe's. I was disappointed to see this being a can but that is okay!
A-The can is simple and looks classy (for beer).
S-Has a PBR like taste in my opinion.
T-Reminds me of PBR to some extent but I am not overly excited about this beer.
M-Same as taste. . just okay.
O-I was surprised that in the end this beer was too weak for my blood.

Simpler times is a brand sold at Trader Joe's for $3.49 a 6-pack. An ale, a lager, and a pilsner are all offered, reviewed here is the pilsner. The pilsner pours a pale golden color, darker than straw, about the same as a Budweiser, with a nice soapy head and some satisfying lacing on the glass. A very pleasing aroma; sweet malts, grassiness, and a slightly metallic scent. The taste is very appealing, a soft graininess, cereal, sweet grass, some herbal and mineral tastes show up in the finish. I feel like this may come from the varieties of hops used and they fit nicely in the profile. A sip sits nicely in the mouth with a medium-thin body and a nice level of carbonation that doesnt over-do it. This is not a complex brew by any means, but it's more pleasant and drinkable than you would expect. A drawback is the sweetness that become somewhat cloying after several beers, but It's become my everyday session beer based on its price, availability and drinkability.
