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 Iím into my third one down, its going down good too. I was in upstate NY in early 1990ís 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.

Pours clear golden with a fluffy white head and a skunky lager aroma. There is a very thin sweet malt flavor with a hint of hop bitterness.

Can from a Walgreens. Pours gold with a foamy white head. Bready aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly bready with not much hop at all. The light version seems more hop flavorful, though this has more malt character. As ever, the question is why. It must be for the alcohol.

I can hardly believe all the insults. I bought my first 6-pack of Big Flats probably a year ago or more. I am VERY impressed with the nice balanced flavor of this beer. Nothing remarkable about this beer except for one major thing - there is absolutely nothing to complain about. It is not too bitter, not watery, not hard to drink, not "skunky" smelling like someone had complained about. I like it as much or better than any regular priced beer I have had in my whole life, and I am 59 years old. I have tried a few.

Not bad, $2.99 a sixer canít go wrong. Alot easer to drink than some of those trendy $8 and $9 six pack beers. This is a good beer to take fishing, camping or if doing shooters as a chaser! Over all in a child mug or glass itís good to go! Better than BUD!!

Reading some comments are funny, what the hell do you expect from a $3.00 six pack. Haha.

~Sweet sugary corn aroma with mild maltiness. ~Pours clear golden with quickly disappearing white head. ~Sweet corn like flavor with bready malts. Little to no hop flavor. ~medium light bodied with medium high CO2, sweet quick bready finish. ~For the style its really not a bad brew. This is one of the better Pale Lagers that I have had.
