Colbert drinks cheap beer and loves it
In a hilarious segment on his show, Stephen Colbert tips his hat to Big Flats beer, Walgreens' private label beer selling for $2.99 a six pack.  Colbert said that this beer is a great idea because since people can't afford prescription drugs, they can go one aisle over and get the beer. He also noted that the beer is a clever marketing tool for Walgreen's because they're selling a product that causes people to buy more of their other wares - mainly Tylenol for the Big Flats-induced headache and Febreeze for the "skunk odor" that Big Flats has been rumored to have.

Colbert then tries the stuff and states he's not drunk enough to enjoy it, but it might be the perfect beer to drink AFTER drinking beer that costs more than a carnival goldfish. Video after the jump.

Im still trying to figure out where the skunk smell is, it has a light aroma, tastes pretty clean(given its a weak taste since its a light lager), for the price its pretty damn good. It wont replace my Shiner but when low on cash ill gladly buy it

just FYI, Don't consume Tylenol if you are in fact a chronic drinker! It taxes your liver twice as hard.

This beer is the worst beer I've ever tasted and I've tasted close to 300 beers of varying qualities.

It takes like Steel Reserve, but worse. At least Steel Reserve has a lot of alcohol, if that's what you want. This beer has no redeeming qualities. Actually it does have a redeeming quality. Rehab centers could serve this beer to alcoholics. It will cause them to forsake beer for the rest of their lives.

The skunk smell comes from your ass after you drink it

It tastes like every other generic light lager. To say it tastes like malt liquor means you are an idiot.

Wrong, I just went down to WalGREENS and bought a sixer. It's no worse than any other budget light beer, we're just getting overcharged for the big brand stuff.

If you honestly believe that then, at best, you're not really paying attention to what you're drinking.

Beer has more variety in flavor and nuance than wine does.

If it only takes you two beers to not care what your drinking, your a cheap date. And obviously dont like beer.

Indeed! I have a feeling these guys making these comments are either paid by other beer or are high school kids who no jack about beer. It tastes EXACTLY like any cheap beer(bud,miller,coors) It isn't bad. It defiantly doesn't taste anything like malt liquor. It isn't sweet whatsoever. more watery with a SLIGHT hops flavor
