This actually didnít live down to its expectations... nor that itís great, mind you. The color isnít as sickly as the picture in one of the siteís threads, but it is very pale. The head is two-fingered and creamy, but it doenít linger to long. The aroma is a sugary, light malty sweetness with a touch of creamed corn. Itís not overly carbonated like many of the BMC brews. The flavor is sweet pale malt with a bit of corn and a touch of an odd tinny bitterness. Not great, but better than most of the BMC fizzy yellow beers.

These reviews are quite scathing. Shit, guys, lighten up a bit. To the craft beer consumer, this stuff probably tastes like garbage. What the fuck do you think these people are trying to produce? Hell, they brew Genesee. You know, the $3.99 6-pack of pints(?). Of course the appearance is golden yellow piss. Of course the flavor is a lot of corn and grass. Of course the texture is virtually non-existent. This goes down easy, and gets you drunk. Iím basing this rating on its ease to produce, but yet, itís ability to get you drunk and forget all the worries in your life. For $2.99 per 6-pack, you canít beat this. Fuck everyone and their stupid fucking ratings that are simply meant to belittle a brewery that simply doesnít give a shit about what you fucking think. Congratulations, you insulted the guy who doesnít give a flying fuck about what you think.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2011 What the hell do you expect for $2.99 a six pack?? Piss yellow pour from can with a white head. Odor (not aroma) is urinal cake and last call bar rag. From there, everything goes downhill. Cheers!

THANKS DAD FOR SAVING ME THIS WONDERFUL BEER. I may never drink again. This is unquestionably the worst thing i have ever had in my mouth. do you have an enemy give them this beer.

Do yourself a favor if you happen to be tricked into drinking this as i was, beat the person who was evil enough to give you this monstrosity, it wonít get rid of the awful taste in your mouth but it will make you feel better.

WALGREENS IS THE SHITTIEST STORE EVER. FUCK WALGREENS. Walgreens has a practical monopoly on retail items in Chicago. Walgreens has store after store after motherfucking store in Chicago, all filled with the same puke. Theyíre perpetually íbehind the timesí but their hegemonic presence in this city means they can just keep on sucking ass and get away with it. Now theyíre trying to carry beer for the first time and its just pathetic. They just HAD to come out with a walgreens version of beer didnít they!? Walgreens made their own versions of energy drinks, their own versions of vitamin water, their own version of coca-cola. WHY!? Theyíre all shitty. Iím the only person Iíve ever seen buying any of those products and its just cause i am perversely attracted to the abject and feel compelled to perform as an expert in the field of that which is awful. I was not surprised at all to see that this crap is made by genesee brewing.

Can from my local Walgreens. On sale - a sixer for only $2.70! Pour is the palest, clearest, cleanest, and most crisp yellow that I have ever seen. I could literally read a book through this beer. Big white head. Aroma is sweet, a little spicy, and almost nonexistent. As it warms, it gets worse. Taste is also almost non existent. As it warms, I can actually find a little hop bitterness and itís almost pleasing. Until hit with an immense corn bread must.
Appearance definitely deserves a 5.

Enjoyed with a good friend while watching the NHL all star game. Supposedly this is the Walgreens beer? In all honesty this tastes better than Budweiser to me, but itís probably much worse quality wise. Appearance of hay with rich white head. Aroma of hay water. Taste near beer, devoid of flavor and mostly water. Not terrible and drinkable.

Quite the american abomination. not sure why these chaps even bother to brew or drink something so horrific. I donít see any reason to stoop to such low levels of beer brewing.
