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. They’re perpetually ’behind the times’ but their hegemonic presence in this city means they can just keep on sucking ass and get away with it. Now they’re trying to carry beer for the first time and its just pathetic. They just HAD to come out with a walgreens version of beer didn’t they!? Walgreens made their own versions of energy drinks, their own versions of vitamin water, their own version of coca-cola. WHY!? They’re all shitty. I’m the only person I’ve 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.

It’s a beer with a full flavour for sure, kind of a smooth taste to it, but you can definitely tell it’s a genesee beer

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 it’s 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 it’s 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 don’t see any reason to stoop to such low levels of beer brewing.

Yellow pour with a fizzy head. Aroma of corn. Cream corn flavor. Weird aftertaste. I’m glad I have 5 more of these beauties to go!

bought at ..uh.. oh ya, Walgreens... . Pours a hay gold, good puffy foam, dies down to a respectable white froth, lacing is decent .. . thin stuff, but taste is ok, corn and a very mild bitterness .. . i’d buy this cheap shit again, but then again, i do live in a box .. . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BNgRpRuWGs

Pours a crystal clear very pale golden color with an initially robust big white head, that quickly diminishes but doesn’t go away entirely. There is some ringing of the glass even. Aroma is pale malt, corn grits and a bit of hoppiness. Taste is sweet pale malt and an odd smokey vegital character that is not unpleasant. Very watery as you might expect, but inoffensive. At $2.99 a sixer, this would make a formidable lawnmower beer when 90+ degree summer days return.
