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.

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.

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.

It had a skunky smell and aftertaste. Won a few points becasue it wasn't watered down as much as expected.

Best of the worst. Great for poker playing, camping and the Indy 500. The patriotic appeal of the weathered aluminum reminds me of drive-in movies, cow tipping and now Kid Rock. This is probably the best beer value in America.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 Well, this is the beer of choice for the "indie-kids" here. It sucks pretty bad though. I will drink it however if I’m at a bar where New Castle or Anchor are nearly four dollars a pop (see "Waterworks"). Also, I think I can actually stand this beer if it is on tap.

In my younger days, read college, this was one of my beer of choice. Now that I am aware of all of the alternates, and can afford a little better brew, it doesn't make it off the store shelf.
