look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I was accompanying TheLibrarianGirl on a late-night trek to Walgreen's in search of some beloved, though soon-to-be discontinued facial moisturizer. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a six-pack of beer I did not recognize. Big Flats! And for the price of $3.49!

Appearance: Pours a clear, thinly-hued, light yellow body with an initially charged, white head that soon settles into a inner-glass encircling ring.

Smell: Nose of displaced, ultra-light malts, faint spicy hops, and grains ruefully dipped in chemical solvents.

Taste: Superficial maltiness, a hint of powdered sugar sweetness. Though the choicest hops were utilized, what's present is incredibly light, giving only a touch of spiciness and even less bitterness. Nearing the swallow, there's a little twitch of chemically harshness, like you're drinking a really, really watered down malt liquor. This very, very faint virulence lasts into the thin finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied, a bit watery, but, as the can says, "it's the water that makes it." Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: A light, lackluster lager, but, being so cheapo-beapo, I can't really hold that against it. Drink it quick, drink it cold, friends.

2.45/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Purchased from one of the local drug stores.

A: Golden with a slight orange tinge. Moderate head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.

S: A little malt and adjunct grain. Slightly sweet and sour. Not good.

T: Much like the smell, but not quite as offensive. No real hops to speak of.

M: Watery, but not excessively so. Not a ton of carbonation.

O: For 3.19 a sixer you don't expect much. You also don't get much. I have had worse.

This beer is $2.99 a six pack but to me tastes much better than Bud, Coors, or Miller...not skunky and I can taste a slight hint of malt. Does not have the bitterness of cheap brews like malt liquor. Overall I would compare it with a Pabst Blue Ribbon in quality and price....did not expect it to taste like a Samuel Adams for the price but it was not disappointing.

had this one on halloween last year got a 6pack at walgreens for a few bucks drank the whole 6 pack to myself not a drop for anybody else it was tolerable i remember it being especially bland tasting like a cross between a bud light and a budwieser with the bud light being most of the taste with under 5% alc you will need 3 or 4 to get that feeling but if you like previously said need a cheap can to sip on while doing some hard work outside this is one to try
