Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Very pale yellow pour with white head (that quickly dissipates). Aroma is mostly rice or corn. No malt at all. Flavor is very light...all corn cereal. Very little mouthfeel. Clean finish though. Inoffensive. Tastes as good or better than many light beers. Cheaper too. If you are going to drink cheap light beers this one is a better choice than some others (bud, coors etc.) Though my personal recommendation is to save this for mowing the lawn or high-school parties.

For crappy cheap beer this one is ok taste like a watered down pbr. Grassy flavor with water really no grain. Crystal clear golden with little aroma.

johnnnniee (2833) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 27, 2015
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 doesnít suck. I wouldnít 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.

Typical lager yellow (pale and clear) with an OK head. Decent carbonation. No lacing. Tasted of toast, roasty, and bread.

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 (1029) - 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 (3299) - 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.

Not as bad as I thought...slightly sweet and malty, not bad at all especially for the price...
