Trader José Light Premium Lager

Nathan Rodgers, his wife Sonia, and their friend Russ Shelly and his wife Sandy set out almost two years ago to review the cult grocer's some 4,500 products for their site What's Good at Trader Joe's?, and so far they've covered more than 300 products. While the reviewers are fans of Trader Joe's, they take reviewing seriously — their first review was even negative. Here's their process:

• They rate products on a scale of one to 10, 10 being the best.

• For any post, two people rate the product.

• Reviewers give their overall impression and up to five points each.

For Russ, Sonia, Shelly, and Sandy, Trader José Light Premium Lager fell into the category of Top 4 Miscellaneous Drinks. Noted Russ, "Trader Joe's has so many great beverages that we decided to make a list to include any items that didn't fall into any of the previous categories." Their review follows:

Trader José Light Premium Lager (8/10 points)
"When I [Nathan] lived in California, I had access to Trader Joe's Wine and Trader José beers. This one's not quite a Corona, but it's a cheap, light lager with a good flavor." Read more about this product on What's Good At Trader Joe's?
