2011 Can - Pours thin and clear neon yellow with a huge fluffy white head...aroma is corny with lightly toasted grain, flavour is corny and malty with a lot more wheat than I expected...finish is sweet and lightly skunky...wasn’t really expecting much and it didn’t disappoint, but the marketing campaign was tolerable...apparently even Walgreens has more integrity that the Bruery...

This actually didn’t live down to its expectations... nor that it’s great, mind you. The color isn’t as sickly as the picture in one of the site’s threads, but it is very pale. The head is two-fingered and creamy, but it doen’t linger to long. The aroma is a sugary, light malty sweetness with a touch of creamed corn. It’s not overly carbonated like many of the BMC brews. The flavor is sweet pale malt with a bit of corn and a touch of an odd tinny bitterness. Not great, but better than most of the BMC fizzy yellow beers.

These reviews are quite scathing. Shit, guys, lighten up a bit. To the craft beer consumer, this stuff probably tastes like garbage. What the fuck do you think these people are trying to produce? Hell, they brew Genesee. You know, the $3.99 6-pack of pints(?). Of course the appearance is golden yellow piss. Of course the flavor is a lot of corn and grass. Of course the texture is virtually non-existent. This goes down easy, and gets you drunk. I’m basing this rating on its ease to produce, but yet, it’s ability to get you drunk and forget all the worries in your life. For $2.99 per 6-pack, you can’t beat this. Fuck everyone and their stupid fucking ratings that are simply meant to belittle a brewery that simply doesn’t give a shit about what you fucking think. Congratulations, you insulted the guy who doesn’t give a flying fuck about what you think. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2011 What the hell do you expect for $2.99 a six pack?? Piss yellow pour from can with a white head. Odor (not aroma) is urinal cake and last call bar rag. From there, everything goes downhill. Cheers! beerslut2010 (1) - - FEB 2, 2011 does not count
THANKS DAD FOR SAVING ME THIS WONDERFUL BEER. I may never drink again. This is unquestionably the worst thing i have ever had in my mouth. do you have an enemy give them this beer. Want to scare away skunks, rats, red necks they won’t even drink this shit. Do yourself a favor if you happen to be tricked into drinking this as i was, beat the person who was evil enough to give you this monstrosity, it won’t get rid of the awful taste in your mouth but it will make you feel better.

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. cfly_is_high (37) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
It’s a beer with a full flavour for sure, kind of a smooth taste to it, but you can definitely tell it’s a genesee beer Fratto (2845) - 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. andyhwcinc (1884) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Appearance definitely deserves a 5.
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. LordFatbottom (10) - Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2011
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.
