1/02/2011: Big Flats Lager Beer... Aroma: Wet grain, weak Hawaiian bread, and lots of corn (slightly toasted and sweet like creamed cown). Appearance: Extremely pale straw color; ultra-transparent; ribbony waves of ample carbonation; large, lasting white head. Flavor: Extremely weak flavor - ALMOST tastes like beer; slightly doughy with notes of sweet corn and weak grass; sweet, smooth finish that ends almost as quickly as it starts. Palate: Light, gassy, short-lived; body is actually not watery. Overall: Cold wet beer, but just BARELY!

12 fl. oz. can from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #189 for this beer.

Can from Walgreens. Aroma is cheap, malt forward, lager from a can. metalic. Taste is a little too flavorful in a pale lager. Lemony malt with some more metal and corn. No hops. Not as bad as some other super cheap pale lagers but this is not good.

This beer is cheap, but has a sweet fruity taste that is a nice change from the normal beers like Busch, Miller, Bud ect. I have been on a can kick lately because my neighbor takes them to the recycle center for a few extra bucks and these pour nicely into my frosted mugs. I’m sure other people give this a lower rating but it is one of my faves.

12 fl oz / 355ml can into a frosty mug. Served cold. Aroma: Corny. No hop profile. Sweetish. Appearance: Completely clear, pale yellow body with a thick, soapy, white head. Taste: Mild malt. not as bad as I was expecting, to be honest. Still pretty bad, though. Palate: Light body, instafinish. Watery as it gets. Overall: Yellow, sweet water.

Can thanks to Chudwick. Aroma is skunky with corn and rice. Some hops come out. Typical American style lager. A little better than the macros.

at first I thought it was root beer, as I stood there waiting for pictures at Walgreens.Sure enough, the box said lager. $2.99 a six pack - couldn’t pass it up. pours pale yellow with quickly diminishing white head. Nose is corn. Flavor adds grass and cereal. watery. quite inoffensive. easy to drink. I may volunteer to go get our photos more often.

I really can't complain for a cheap beer from Walgreens, it's drinkable but it's not good. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

I know its dirt beer, but it worked that day. Not bad as a summer sipper while checking out the food trucks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I bought this beer today at Walgreens, got it for 3.33 six pack total with tax. At first, thought this was kind of a funny tasting beer, but I’m into my third one down, its going down good too. I was in upstate NY in early 1990’s and familiar with Genesee beers, it was the local cheapest beer on draft, not the best tasting of beers but it did the trick. I do like the foam part of it, and the taste for the price does the trick. I would drink it again. Not a bad beer, not the best but not that bad.

12 oz can from bhensonb poured into my "Golden Harvest Drinking Jar". Nose is sweet caramel corn with a hint of bubblegum. Clear urine yellow with a medium white head. Flavor is sweet malt with a hint of cotton candy. Actually slightly pleasant to drink with the malty body on this hot afternoon after I just got home from a long steep bicycle ride.
