Pointless. Absolutely pointless. Since it is safe the drink the tap water now in Milwaukee, there is no further need for this beer.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-31-12-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a straw color with a big billowy white head. The head has a pretty good level of retention, slowly fading to give a quite nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is a mix of corn sweetness, some grainy aromas as well as a light citrus hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a grainy flavor mixed with flavors of corn and rice. While lightly sweet initially, some more sweetness comes to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. At the end of the taste a light citrus hop and a tiny bit of paper flavors comes to the tongue giving a rather simple and mild, but mostly clean (beyond the light paper taste) and crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite light in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather high. The light body and the higher carbonation level are very fitting for the simple flavors and crispness of the brew, accentuating the drinkability of the brew.
Overall – Simple and highly drinkable with no highly offensive off flavors. With its cheap price, it makes for a decent party/session brew.

My grandfather’s beer. This one is on the light end of the pale lager spectrum. The aroma is grassy, the taste grainy and mild, the palate light, and the finish smooth. Overly gassy carbonation. I can drink it with him but it’s not something I would buy.

Enjoyed on tap at Franks Power Plant in Milwaukee, WI while doing karaoke with friends. This one isn't exceptionally good, but it's also not exceptionally bad either. I can drink multiple and have horrible stomach pains, but no blistering hangover the next day. So that's good, I guess.

Nummenrannassa. 0,355 l bottle labelled as Pabst Blue Ribboon, is this the same stuff? Nothing disturbing, nothing to remember in this beer.

Drank from a can while on holiday and couldn’t find any good beer. The beer has very little taste, maybe a hint of hops.

Anyone out there remember the commercial "tastes as great as its name."
Hmmm...I hope I don’t sound too old saying that, well, anyways, here’s my take on this.
When this was actually poured into a pint glass, this is what I saw.
There was a semi-decent golden to yellow color with a rapidly dissipating foamy white head. There wasn’t any lacing.
The smell had some cooked corn/rice of sorts and that was it.
The taste was sweet through the cooked corn/rice of sorts.
The palate sat about a light to medium and had a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, hmmm....growing up this was my father’s go to beer to pour over the Memorial Day pig roast. I remember fairly well watching him sip over the can and then pour over the pig. It was kinda fun back in the day to watch everyone around me have a good ol’ time with beer and I thought back then maybe some day I’ll have my beer. Wow, what a walk down memory lane tonight as I see how many beers I’ve actually consumed and finally got around to this and honestly, would I have this again? Probably not. Why? Well, there just really isn’t much there. Maybe someday, I’ll do my own pig roast with my son and buy some of this just to show my son how much of an idiot I look like.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is bland malt and slight bitterness. Adjuncts and some carbonation present. Taste is much the same. Some sweet maltiness that is consumed by bland bitterness and malt dryness. Appearance is a clear gold with a pearl head that retains poorly.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
355ml bottle from a supermarket in Helsinki, labelled as Pabst Blue Ribbon, 4.5% abv, seems to be the same stuff as in Sweden. Clear light yellow colour, tiny fully disappearing fizzy white head, no lacing. Aroma is mainly grain and corn with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is slightly sweet initially turning into a short bitterish finish with a metallic and chalky feel. Light body, dry/thin texture, lively carbonation. Quite a cheap feeling bulk lager, perhaps not quite as awful as Budweiser but on par with the cheaper stuff here.
