Light yellow and clear a bright white head. Smells like subtle lemons, but taste like absolutely nothing... water, really. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Their commercial jingle in the 1970's was "Share a little brotherly love with Drummond Brother's Beer." Harmless regional American light lager. PhillyBeer2112 (2895) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Well I’ve actually got a story to go along with this one. I’ve mentioned in other ratings that I grew up around alot of swill drinking softball players. My dad played softball with a group of guys just about every weekend while the weather permitted for several years, up until I was about 8 or 9 years old. My dad hated beer but his friends drank like crazy - I guess it was cool in the 70’s to just be able to hold softball games in public parks and have coolers of beer sitting all around. The pitcher would usually keep a cold one in his glove while he pitched. Anyway, the point is that I would find lots of different kinds of empties around these places and became fascinated by the variety and began to collect cans. I gave up that hobby years ago but one of the ones I found one day that really stood out was a can of Drummond Bros. I remember it stood out as a very distinctive can with the ornate design and swords. Fast forward 30 years and I’m driving by Sams Club and get curious about the little liquor store they have attached...I begin to wonder if they might have something my regular store doesn’t. In general the answer was no, but I sure jumped when I saw sixpacks of Drummond Bros. on the shelf for $3. There was no way I could pass that up! Cold in a thistle glass, its a pale gold that approaches the straw color range. Medium fizzy head. Initial aroma hints a sulfur (not light struck, more the rotten egg sulfur). Not a good start. Fortunately that aroma faded and the sulfur was not detectable in the flavor. It was quite clean actually, nothing offensive but also no redeeming qualities either. Excessive carbonation gives it a fuller mouthfeel than it really had. Finishes a bit sticky and wet; not refreshing. A second can featured a distinctive metallic flavor (not drinking directly out of the can). troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2006
(Can) Pours yellow with a small white head. Taste is really disappointing. Relatively sweet, almost too much so. I think this is due to corn syrup or something. Not very bitter. Dry, almost metallic finish. Not recommended. fiveacestx (974) - Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Had this back in ’92 or ’93. I was passing through Tennessee and hadn’t seen it in my home state so I picked up a six. Kinda reminded me of Natural Light. Real salty tasting.

Can, Lager Glass. Seriously I did not mind this one that much, really not too bad fairly tame in taste but nothing ferociously nasty like I expected. I might actually buy this one again. A decent amount of taste, nothing to much no hops but mild light malts, nothing too sweet. Really not that bad especally for a can. Beer Guy99 (251) - Maineville, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Drummond Bros. was always a clean, easy drinking beer. It did win a gold medal at Great American Beer Festival while being brewed by Evansville Brewing. I finally tried it since it moved to Pittsburgh and it tastes much the same, it's a good everyday beer. Always at a bargain price but the can looks expensive. I hear this beer sold very well in Japan for a while. Like an old friend. This is definitely worth trying and buying on a regular basis, especially if you're currently drinking loser suds like Milwaukee's Best or Natural Light. You can do better with Drummond Bros. at around the same price. pjcoupe (105) - Perryton, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2002

Drinkable and weak, don’t pass on a free one. But don’t buy it unless it’s the only thing in the store not made by AB beer butchers. lewis13 (49) - Kokomo, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2007
I used to buy this stuff in college (not THAT long ago) strictly because it was $6.99 a case. While it’s fairly obvious that my priorities were different then, that may be why I can’t seem to remember anything about the way this beer tasted. I am guessing there’s a reason I haven’t bought it since.
