1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pour is a golden with a large white head that does not last long. Aroma is grainy and corny. Flavor is sweet grain with a slight pils malt left on the tounge after the swallow. I guess at walgreens only and dirt cheap at $2.99. That alone made me pick this up. Its not horrible but not great and its always fun to go old school. Pick up a sixer next time your buying toothpaste or prophylactic’s, its cheaper.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Initial heavy grain aroma,not indecent, I like the grainy aromas of German lagers,why cant I like this kind of grain,,does quickly settle to a very light malt aroma,one of the lightest,clearest beers I’ve ever seen, flavor is a puffy, corn,cereal grain taste with a little hop bitterness in finishHas this little thickness to it tahts keeps it from being a real refresher,aftertaste is a little chemically,but flavor is fine albeit thin. If I made this as a homebrew,I’d be happy. thanks LT Judge

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was accompanying LibrarianGirl on a late-night trek to Walgreen’s in search of some beloved, though soon-to-be discontinued facial moisturizer. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a six-pack of beer I did not recognize. Big Flats! And for the price of $3.49!
Appearance: Pours a clear, thinly-hued, light yellow body with an initially charged, white head that soon settles into a inner-glass encircling ring.
Smell: Nose of displaced, ultra-light malts, faint spicy hops, and grains ruefully dipped in chemical solvents.
Taste: Superficial maltiness, a hint of powdered sugar sweetness. Though the choicest hops were utilized, what’s present is incredibly light, giving only a touch of spiciness and even less bitterness. Nearing the swallow, there’s a little twitch of chemically harshness, like you’re drinking a really, really watered down malt liquor. This very, very faint virulence lasts into the thin finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied, a bit watery, but, as the can says, "it’s the water that makes it." Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: A light, lackluster lager, but, being so cheapo-beapo, I can’t really hold that against it. Drink it quick, drink it cold, friends.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A clear, very pale yellow pour with white head. It has a grainy aroma mixed with cardboard. The light body has a watery texture and fizzy carbonation. The taste is lightly bitter with a clean finish. This is what happens when you buy beer at Walgreen’s.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From the 355 ml. can no. 3140-10:48. This Walgreens contracted beer pours pale yellow with a substantial fizzy white head. The aromas are of grain, corn, and adjuncts. The body is typically thin for an American pale lager. The taste blends the hops in a little better but overall it really tastes like a cheap macro. It is pretty cheap at $2.99/six.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can ($2.98 a six pack at Walgreens, woohoo!) served in shaker- poured the standard transparent very light yellow with the smallest amount of copper color, medium lively carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head that did show some effort to lace. Aroma of corn and a minuscule amount of hops. Hits the mouth with weak and restrained body, hearty corn malt is there all the way, middle has some water, finish has a lot more than just a kiss of hops- a very fine acidity from it. Enabler of a New Years Eve that included only one can of this beer, the riff from "Smoke on the Water", unicorns, rainbows, and "Ode to Joy". If airburst upon this page, the level of awesomeness would cause your feeble minds to explode in ecstasy. Yeah. Bought 2 sixers of this and still had some leftover for snacks- if I would have bought a recent Sam Adams collab, I would have been screwed over for spending the same dollar amount. Who got suckered, sucka?

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Copious white foam over clear yellow liquid. Resinous hoppy aroma. Resiny gummy malt flavor like from the leftovers of last year’s mash tun. Sticky, gelatinous body. Nasal clogging finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Light to moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to medium sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where met with a below average beer.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
$2.99 6 pk can from Walgreens. Pours a bright straw yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of faint malt, some corn and a touch of grass. Flavor is much the same. Mouth feel is light body with very high carbonation. Overall, it was not nearly as bad as what I thought it would be.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from a sixer bought at the local Walgreens.
Pours a nice glassy wow-I-took-a-buttload-of-vitamins-this-morning yellow. It’s quite pretty. Aroma is corned skunk juice on a sugary vegetable compost heap. Flavor is watery corn flakes and not much else. Watery mouthfeel. Sink this ship. At least the can is kinda nice looking.
