I hate giving negative reviews but if this were the only beer on the planet, I wouldn't drink beer. It has about the worst after taste of any beer I have ever had the pleasure, or in this case, displeasure of drinking. I can't imagine their brewmeister sampling this and thinking he had a winner.

If all you need is a buzz regardless of how a beer tastes then this is highly recommended.

Trader Joe's find 3 some bucks for a 6 pack abv 6.2 taste not bad very mild bite to it. Overall not bad only real complaint is the carbonation died off rather quickly.

For the price it is enjoyable. Golden clear color. Smells like apple juice and white wine. Taste is very light and slightly sweet pear and apple flavors. Good moderate carbonation feel. On a hot summer day it is refreshing and simple.

Pours a crystal clear golden color with a fizzy, white head that fades away to basically nothing. Smell is creamed corn with hints of grassy hops and a touch of malt. Notably bitter with corn, hints of honey, and the taste that turpentine leaves when you walk into a room that hasn't been ventilated properly while someone is using it, and grass. Blessedly fast finish. Light body, moderate to light carbonation. You couldn't pay me to drink this again.

4$ a six pack here in va. 6.2% abv and tastes as good if not better then its high priced competitors. For the price it's a great deal.

At $3 for a six pack this is a no brainer. Not the tastiest beer. Its somewhat metallic with a nice hoppy note. A nice light amber color and a small head. The can is absolutely beautiful and I like the reminiscent name: simpler times.

I didn’t think I could taste something as bad as a strippers rear end. Then I had a Simpler Times. I could barely contain my nausea and wrenching. I don’t care if a six pack is only $3.00. Would you buy a six pack of diarrhea if it was only $3.00? Because that is what Simpler Times is, canned diarrhea. Actually, it’s worse than that. It’s canned diarrhea infused with swamp water.

Absolutely brilliant. Simpler Times Lager is like a unicorn. It's smooth, it tastes great, it has an abv of 6.2, and a six pack costs only $3.00! Are you kidding me? Even the ass water they call bud light goes for $6.00 per six pack. There is no other beer like it and I would absolutely choose it over most craft beers that cost 4 times as much. I love a good craft beer, but at 50 cents a pop this is a winner.

Surprisingly good budget priced beer.

I generally drink local craft brews but was in Trader Joes browsing their beer collection when a guy rolled a buggy up and loaded two cases of this stuff. It wasn't much of a gamble at the price so I grabbed a six pack for myself.

I confess i drank it straight from the can so i did not look at the color or stick my nose in the can to experience the fragrance, however. I got a decent one beer buzz so it did its job.

Nice post work unwind beverage that would probly be good after cutting the grass this weekend. I confess I might not drink more than one in a sitting but I will buy a second six pack on Friday and let you know.
