Can from a Walgreens. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Bready aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly bready with not much hop at all. The light version seems more hop flavorful, though this has more malt character. As ever, the question is why. It must be for the alcohol.

I brought to Tampa Wkly Gathering-was hoping Zack would be there-12oz can-pours a retaining foamy white head with yellow color. Aroma is sweet grain/corn, some herbal hops. Taste is sweet grain/corn, some perfumy/herbal hops. An average budget macro, so I was generally impressed from what I expected for the first 8oz, the last 4oz less impressed.

Can @ home. Fuck yeah! Walgreens beer!! Transparent, golden appearance with a white head. Light pale malty, corn, straw, grassy, yucky aroma. Slightly fruity, corn, pale malty, piss flavor. I’m going to be a broke college student soon but I hope I won’t have to drink this shit.

Can from you know where. Pours clear golden with a large white head. Fades fairly quickly. Aroma of big grassy hops, creamed corn, grain. The taste is grainy malts, corn, faintly grassy finish. Thin. About what you’d expect.
