Can thanks to Chudwick. Uhh...let freedom ring with watered down ale? It is easy drinking and more flavorful than the Budweiser I had before it, but...one wonders WTF sometimes.

what better way to celebrate the start of the 100th Tour de France, than with Freedom Salute. 16oz can from Walgreens - pours pale gold with quickly diminishing white head. Nose is floral cardboard. Flavor adds light bread. decent aftertaste considering the nose and initial flavors. light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 Impulse buy from Walgreens, tall can poured into pint glass. Clear amber’ish golden-pale color with white head. Aroma of sweet pale malt and very slight fruity note. Taste is kind of doughy, corny and some grain. Light body, heavy carbonation, sweet with a dry finish. Not really remarkable for my first cream ale, guess I can only go up from here!

Even though this a cheap beer, it still has more going on the the classic Budweiser. Poured a nice dark gold with a slight head. It has a slightly fruity aroma, It has a smooth taste with a hint of sweetness.
Being that I’m a US Army Iraq veteran I like the can as well.

Deep gold brew poured from the tall boy can. The head is creamy and off white. A sweet doughy nose has some green apple and cereal notes. This is a little bit grainy and has some hints of corn flakes. The finish is a little bit of green apple and hay. Not bad for the money.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Should have known that my old buddy PorterPounder would have beaten me to this one. Clear, sweet corny aroma. Clear specimen gold, white loose-knit head. This can is destined for someone’s 1977 beer can wall display as an add-on. A blatant appeal to 4th of July patriotism to cover up for brewing a cheap, nasty lager. Under-bittered, some musky straw flavors, thin body. Bland breakfast cereal finish. Walgreen’s.

Can. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is basic corny bread, grainy and some biscuit. Flavor is bland, sweet and grainy, not much going on though not offensive. Sweet with a lingering honeyish finish.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is cheap and corn like with light alcohol and apples. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is malty and dry. The palate is thin. Overall this is a cheap beer and it shows. As a side note dogs dig it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Walgreen’s - 16 oz can. Pours an oily medium gold, quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has some wet copper penny accents, a bit of wet paper bag. Flavor has some metallic accents, some some, some cheap hard candy sweetness, a bit of an alcohol bite. Dry mouthfeel. Had worse drinking experiences.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour from a 16oz can, 4 pack from Walgreen’s. Deep golden yellow brew with white head. Active carbonation. Aroma of corn, vegetal funk, light skunkiness and a little ethanol. Taste is sweet at the start with a little funkiness and herbal hops in the middle, ending sweet again, a little butter and more funk rounding things out. Subtle but distinct metallic bite at the very very end. Meh.
