Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.


Established in Milwaukee in 1844, this is the original Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Nature’s choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America’s Best in 1893.

Drank plenty of this in college before it was trendy, because it was affordable. Cereal grains mostly, not much else.

Not sure what the hipsters in America see in this beer, I’d much rather a microbrew than this macro swill. Anyway, this is typical pale lager fare: golden colour; watery; white, fluffy, shortlived head; weakly flavoured, etc.

Blandness incarnate.

Dear god. The worst homebrew is better than this. PBR is the worst of the cheap beers. Avoid like the plague. If you must drink it, chill it to near freezing.

473ml can. Pours a clear pale gold, with a medium white head, which lasts well but leaves no lacing. No real aroma, aside from booziness. There are hops there, but they offer no specific flavour. Soap, cardboard and generic sweetness in the mid-palate fade to a featureless finish. At least there’s no metallic aftertaste. Very dull, but I’ve had worse.

Transfer from BA review from 6-21-12 - Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance - Served a light golden/ straw color with a medium head. The head faded very rapidly to leave almost no lacing. Smell - Very mild in the aroma department. There is a light corn and malt aroma as well as a somewhat papery aroma as well. Overall though very light. Taste - The taste throughout has a malty and very light rice and corn like flavor. Just as was with the nose the flavors are rather light. Mixed with this flavor is a light earthy flavor that comes in toward the end of the taste. Nothing too offensive but nothing to special either. Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is below average and the carbonation level is above average. Both make it super easy to down, and mixed with the lighter flavors, it is more like drinking seltzer. Overall - A watery, easy drinking, tolerable beer. Appropriate for hot days outside while session drinking; such as while tailgating or the like. Nothing to drink when looking for something with a lot of flavor and feel though.

16 Fl OZ ($3.00) had this on tap. pretty good on tap; far better than canned. I always considered this a hipster beer. you will always see the people who ride fixie bikes drinking ths. at least its a pale lager and not a malt.

You can never go wrong with a Pabst Blue Ribbon. Cheap, tasty, and drinkable. Only problem with it are those damn hipsters ruining it for us.

Bottle from systembolaget Sweden. Short white head that goes down to a lasting lace. The color is watered yellow. Aroma of violer vegetabilier and small bitterness in the taste.
