Cheap American Adjunct Beer at its best!

A: It's yellow and has little bubbles, like beer.

S: Nothing bad. Smells like Cheap American Adjunct Beer.

T: Nice clean adjunct beer taste with no bad aftertaste.

M: Medium to high carbonation.

D: I'd buy it again for $2.99.

If you're in Walgreens, you're probably there to get a prescription filled, toothpaste or shampoo for the wife. Bland, boring shopping at its worst. As you're walking toward the register, you spot a display of Cheap American Adjunct Beer for only $2.99 a six-pack, which is about all you've got left after paying for the exciting tube of wart removal cream. Thank you Walgreens. Marketing genius and Cheap American Adjunct Beer at its best.

Pours into a pee colored light yellow with a 1" head that has no retention or lacing. It has very high carbonation. it hardly has any smell at all, maybe a little bit of an yeast and corn smell. The taste is very watery with rotting corn, and other vegetables. The taste makes me feel sick drinking it. it also tastes like some musty mildew or some old hay was in the brew when it was being made. The mouthfeel is very watery with a little bit of chalkiness, and because it is light bodied and watered down like most beers of this popular American style makes it very drinkable. It is the ideal beer for someone who is low on money and wants something cheap to get drunk off of and at $2.99 a 6/pack at Walgreen's you can't beat a deal like that.

Pours a crstal clear lighter-than-straw yellow with 3 fingers of foamy head and no lacing. Barely any color at all.

The aroma is corn heavy with a pleasant earthy tone and hints of citrus. Clove, pineapple, and watermelon rind deep in the background. Not a bad aroma for the style, actually.

The flavor is incredibly musty. This one was served at higher than cellar temp so I think some cold might have masked the mustiness a bit. But I want to taste the beer, so I chose to serve it this way. After a few sips, the watermelon notes begin to peek out ever so slightly, as well as some banana peel. Then, after a few more sips, it begins to just taste like water. Typical flavor profile of the style.

The body is light, perhaps medium for the style. Carbonation is a tad stinging.

Overall this beer is exactly what you would expect for the price. Not much. But screw it, its Walgreens beer so kick back your feet, pound a sixer, and enjoy a taste of corporate America.

Found this one at the local Walgreens. $2.99 for a six pack of cans. Poured into a pint glass

A: Very light, straw yellow in color. Small head.

S: Standard adjunct lager. Not much to smell.

T: Actually, not that bad. Somewhat sweet, malty finish. A lot better than I expected.

M: Thin. Somewhat watery.

D: A very easy drinking beer. I don't know how many I'd actually want to have in one session, but I'm sure someone would like to pound a bunch of these.

Overall: Not a horrible beer, but not good. You get what you pay for. For $2.99, I didn't expect much, and that's what I got.
