12 oz. can from Walgreens pours a clear pale yellow color with a dense foamy white head. Sweet aroma of corn and grassy hops with faint alcohol. Mild flavor is slightly tart with a touch of hop bitterness. Tastes similar to most of the other cheap domestic beers on the market. Could act as a palate cleanser between good beers.

Tallahassee, Fl - Walgreen’s - Thomasville Rd - 12 oz can. Pours an oh so pale light golden with a slight white head that actually leaves slight lacing. Aroma is basically neutral, but when you try really hard you pick up some wet cardboard. Flavor is typical, cheap, industrial lager. Some grassy notes, a hint of honey sweetness, a lot of bland cardboard notes. Mouthfeel is slightly stinging, kind of like some of those low-carb efforts. Had worse.

Well, I was surprised to find a new tick in Maryville. How about that? Unfortunately, this was the most remarkable thing about this beer. Oh, and it’s 99 cent price tag, of course...

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.

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.

Fratto (2654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2011
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.

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.

Straw yellow in color with a very fizzy head. Slight skunky fermented aroma mixed along with some cereal grain notes. Dry flavor and very bubbly on the palate. Overall, not much going on here. What was I thinking when I purchased this? I think the price of $2.99 blinded me. It might be good as a camping brew...

12 oz. can shared by a local STLHops guy at our hotel the night before DLD- thanks, Paul! Looks like a pale lager- pale, clear pour with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. Notes of grains, pale malts, grass, water, minerals, corn, and straw. No trace of skunk, which is an achievement in and of itself. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a fizzy, grainy mouthfeel. For a $3 6-pack, you could do a lot worse.

The can says "premium brew" right on it, so I have very high expectations. Pours a very pale, clear golden with a massive, bright white head. Head leaves decent egg-white lacing. Sour straw nose atop lightly floral lemon and apple juice. Mildly sweet, very mildly sour (yet inoffensive) flavor with notes of sweet wheat, vanilla malts and lemon peel. Grainy finish and thin bodied. Overall - inoffensive yet another example of a dime-a-dozen pale lager.
