2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Actually, I've revisited this beer recently, mostly as a lark. I used to get it when I was a poor, working teenager for $4.99 a
case back in the mid 80's. It wasn't so bad back then, actually it isn't so bad nowadays, if you like cheap, mass produced swill,
that is. Has a cloudy, orangish-yellow color to it when poured. Smells about like you'd expect too. Corn, rice, and cheap
6-row grain are the dominating factors in it's aroma. Actually has some hops aroma to it, or maybe that was just my
imagination, running away with me. It was just my imagination. Makes for an okay summertime beer, I guess. I tasted some
malts in it, actually tasted kind of good, for a macro-swill. It tastes better than Bud, that's for sure. Definite metallic finish to it,
however. Probably from being in the can so long. No freshness date on it either.

No head, no flavor, no excitement. It gets you drunk, but that's about it. Not awful.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. Oddly this was the first time I had a Pabst, Jumped right to the good stuff, anyway. This was an old mans beer. Very yellow with almost no flavor.

Not as bad as everyone thinks if you consider it competition (Miller & Bud). Ice cold this is a good beer, they actually serve it at Milwaukee Public Golf courses. Don't let it get warm, however.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 cheap, somewhat better than other macros... the price is the main good point of this.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 For $12 a 30/pack and $3.75/6-pounders, it really isnt horrible. Just drink it REALLY cold or it will taste like crap. The upside is that the more you drink, the less you taste it.

It's not good, so why do we love it? Is it because it makes us thing of paneled basements and the stolen pleasures of Dad's forbidden stash? Whatever. Just make sure to drink it really really cold.

I drank this on the beach today..and it did the job..it's one of those thirst quenching but NOT good beers that i would never buy unless i was going to the beach (cans only) and had no choice..but i must say..very creamy mouthfeel although the carbination was a bit low..everything else mirrored adjuncty american lager though..but not all that bad.
