Default Will Flat Beer Keep?

I recenctly realized my co2 tank was leaking and is now empty. I have new batch in a corny that has probably been sitting flat at a controled temp in my freezer for 3 weeks. I have not had time to get a co2 fill up. Does it hurt the beer to sit in the freezer flat at all until i have time to carbonate ? It is sealed in the corney under a little bit of pressure, enough to keep the lid tight.

Had the keg been purged of O2 in the headspace (i.e. "burping" the keg)? If so, you should be ok.

If there is O2 in the keg and the beer is not carbonated, it may absorb or at least contact the O2, potentially causing problems.

Just get CO2 on it quick and drink it even more quickly.
