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.

This is comparable to old style Schaefer Beer back in the 60ís. It is very sweet and has an aftertaste just like Genesee Ale. If you drank any knick, back in the day, you would NEVER say the word corn in relation to this beer. It has no flavor of a true corn beer. Ever smell the tap beer back in 60ís or 70ís? Then you know this is a beer on itsí own that isnít great but is passable for 3 bucks.

nealblind (914) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 1, 2014
clear gold pour. Some big head. Aroma of corn, fake hops. Tastes sweet corn, cereal grains, sugar, honey. very slight bitter. for how sweet it is, it dries out decently on the finish.

Frank (3016) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2014
This is brewed specifically for Walgreenís, I believe, though I may be mistaken. I figured it would be your standard City Brewing contract awfulness but Genessee makes this and itís kinda OK. It is a clear yellow beer w a head of fine bubbles and little spots of lace. This is grainy and kind of sweet but not really a particularly flavorful beer. It is medium bodied for the style w/ moderate carbonation. Overall, Iíd say this isnít really a standout beer and isnít really trying to be. As a beer you buy for three bucks a six pack at a drug store, Iíd say itís pretty damn decent.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
12oz can 1/31/11 (DFW Layover)-Pours a clear golden with a big loose white head. Aroma of sweetness, corn, and malt. Taste of the same with more sweetness. This light bodied brew was not as bad as I was expecting.

12 ounce can poured into a big snifter. Pours a clear gold with a white head of foam. Mediocre retention. Not much aroma, but what is there reminds me of corn flavored cotton candy. Sounds tasty, huh? The taste is more corn than sweet cotton candy. If I remember correctly, this is the cheapest beer available in the US. I could see that. I would take it over a lot of the other macros for sure, though. Light body and medium carbonation.

jsquire (3553) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Straw yellow color with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Sweet corny nose with some hop notes. Thick syrupy mouthfeel with corn, white sugar and some grains. Odd beer.

Can from Wallgreens. Sweet cereal grain and wet paper dominate nose. Clear light gold with a slightly off white head. Taste is cereal grain and slight lemon. A little sweet but finished very quickly. Slight corn. Thinnish mouthfeel.
