1.8/5  rDev -13%

This beer pours a pale yellow color with a fizzy bright white head on top. The head quickly receeds and leaves nothing behind.

The smell is basic, sweet corn and bready malt.

The taste is basic as well. It's lightly sweet, corn like again. Then lightly bitter on the finish.

The mouthfeel is thin with a bright fizzy carbonation.

Basically, this is a Corona knock off from the choice of packaging, including the color of packaging as well as the writing, to the color of the beer in the clear bottle complete with blue cap. Although Corona is not a great beer, it is certainly better than this one. I suspect AB is involved at some level as this beer has a twist off cap. Normally when a beer appears out of thin air with very professional packaging and is complete with a twist off, it often is some phantom brewery no one has heard of that eventually traces back to AB. That's just me starting gossip though, I have no proof. Anyway, shitty little beer and not much else to say.

A: light yellow.. very pale straw.. clear body.. head settles very quickly..

S: cheap adjuncts, veggie stew.. skunk..

T: very watered down.. the obvious skunk from the clear bottle, corn, grain.. weird sweetness to it.. no hops..

Mf: light, somewhat crisp.. very thin body..

O: an attempt at an already bland beer, Corona.. falls short. What do u expect at only 5.99 a six.. contracted for Walgreen's.

From the clear bottle marked 1601-11:20-I. Sampled on November 15, 2011. It pours the standard pale yellow of an adjunct so in that regard I give it an average. Lots of short-lived carbonated fizz that dissolves right off. The aroma is like toasted bread but not toasted malts along with grain and rice. Maybe there are some vague hops. The body is thin. The taste has a bit more of a grainy malt character and a light hop bite afterwards. I have not seen this anyplace else but at Walgreens so that in itself tells me something.

6 pack from Walgreens of all places .S.Salem. $3.99 This will be a short review. Slightly darker than say Corona with a better head Aroma? what there is is corn and cardboard. Taste is OK in fact, corn again but with a touch of hop that makes it go down pretty easy. OK on the palate for style Not too bad.. wasn’t dissapointed in spending the 4 bucks

This was the worst thing I have ever tried. Not only beer wise but anything. I will never, ever buy this again. I would rather never have a beer again than drink this. This is a foul, skunked (when fresh) horrible flavored beer. Unlike many light lagers that are just flavorless this has flavor but it is truly repelling.
