0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Well, today is Wednesday so it must be Hong Kong. And what do I find in the 7-11 across the road from my hotel? Fully imported from the US it trumpets. So this is the real deal PBR. God its pale, thin headed and corny on the nose. I like the description on the can where it says that it was America’s best in 1893. I am pleased that we have moved on from those non-heady days 111 years ago. I would hate to see what gets the red and gold ribbons.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark straw color with a Dininished white fluffy head. Metallic and mild malt aroma. Had this on tap a few months ago and the aroma actually had some hops, but I wasn't rating that night so this will have to stick. More metal in the flavor. Suggests that the tap version is much better as american standards go.

From the first time you stick your nose in the glass, you know you're going to be disappointed. There is noting inviting about the aroma. The aftertaste seems stronger than the taste, but not as pleasant. My throat feels full of phlegm afterwards. The only thing to like about this beer is nostalgia, and what did I know back then?

Tastes cheap. Drink this stuff ice-cold if you want to finish it. They charge more for it than they should. It will hammer you and give you a nasty hangover too! Be careful. but hey, knock one back in memory of Dad and Granpa. Aside from that Fuggetabouttit!

Just another cheap light beer, nothing to write home about. I would enjoy a stronger flavor.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
This tastes exactly like any other light beer I've ever had. Really nothing to get excited about here. Extra points because its great to boil brats in.

Not entirely ceratain why this has become some sort of cult favorite. The normal fizzy yellow, better than average head, aroma of adjuncts. Tastes like corn. Admittedly has more flavor than Bud. Still prefer the High Life when I'm slumming beers.

As bad a reputaion this stuff has, i think it somewhat drinkable. teh palate on it is rather interesting and its not as watery as other beers.
