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 cheap, and that’s the best I can say about it. Think poorly made beer and you’ll have a pretty good idea what waits for you in the can. Save the 3 bucks for a sixpack and buy a single of a good beer instead.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Walgreens at 3.33 per six pack.
Crystal clear light golden color with a bubbly frothy white head and moderate sticky lace. Grainy cereal aromas with a touch of pomme fruitiness. Crisp grainy maltiness with a touch of green apple and lots of carbonic bite. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation. Well the price is right, and it doesn’t suck. I wouldn’t go out of my way to pick this up, but its a decent drinker. I might see if I can shotgun one of the remaining 5 cans.

This is comparable to old style Schaefer Beer back in the 60’s. 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 60’s or 70’s? Then you know this is a beer on its’ own that isn’t great but is passable for 3 bucks.
