2.6/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

This beer is a very pale straw yellow color with about 2 fingers of white head that fades fast and little to no lacing in the glass

Smell is light can says brewed with choicest hops but the aromas would say otherwise, has an aroma most similar to a natty light or keystone light

Taste is sweet and light no real big flavors very watery for claiming to be a full body beer and not a "light" beer

Mouthfeel is light and clean not myuch substance to this

Overall this beer is very cheap so I didn't expect much this is a beer that you can drink a lot of on a tight budget and can give you a break from the eveyday major commercial cheap light beer and is neat to say that you had a beer called big flats. So if your looking to drink cheap this could be a good choice otherwise this should be avoided

2.45/5  rDev -3.5%
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

Don't go to Walgreens much. Saw this beer at $2.99 a six pack, knew I had never had it and basically said, "what the heck."
Based on the price tag, I will give a little rope. I can be harsh when I rate the expensive beers that I think are a poor value, and give a little slack for the cheap stuff.
Pours a pale hay straw yellow with a skimpy head that is gone in the blink of the eye.
Aroma is grassy with some earthy tones.
Taste is corn husk.
It is a little fizzy. This is beer that is best kept for a hot summer day after doing yard work and you just want a beer to chug down and quench a thirst.
