    Hope the Charmin marketing folks are paying attention. I see a cross-promotional opportunity here!

    Re: Rejoice beer fans!

    Confession, I saw this at the 128th and University walgreens about a month ago and grabbed a 6 pack since it was only $2.99 and I was curious. For the money it was drinkable...although I like Keystone Light so take it for what its worth.

    Re: Rejoice beer fans!

    Picked some up before Xmas as the guy at the counter told me it tasted like Busch Light. For 50 cents a can, I figured I'd give it a shot. Not bad

    Ames store has it, I haven't bought it yet. It's a great idea.

    Re: Rejoice beer fans!

    I can generally find High Life and HL Light in 30 packs for .50/.60 cents per can and I doubt that this would be better tasting.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    By the way, rejoice for what - a crappy lager w/ just enough hops to say that it has hops?
