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.

Color and head are average, by mass-produced standards. The flavor is smooth, but not overly powerful (a Monty Python beer) and the aroma (when you can get it) is lightly wheat. A perfectly drinkable beer, and the price is right for the quality. You get what you pay for, and not a penny less.

LOL. this is some true trailer-trash sh*t beer. Definitely the kind of beer to expect to drink while fishing with your grandfather.. or with your dad when you're 16. Good for pawning off on college freshman sorority chicks that arent into bud light or wine coolers..

Had corny overtones and didn't seem very smooth. Nothing like ordering the PBR bottles at a bar though.

Light yellow beer. Fizzy with a white rapidly diminishing head. Aroma is almost non existant. Taste exhibits some malty sweatness, Not much else here. Drink only if you are desperate and it is free.

I've heard this used to be a world class beer. Not to happy with this. Very bad taste. But at least I can say I've had PBR.

For a pilsner this stuff gets a bad rap. Dont't get me wrong it's not a world class beer. It is however better than bud or coors. Its very light in color and drinks the same way.

We eat at Ray's in Kent enough that they know our habits. Kyle the waiter knows that Chloe is going to order a hot dog, with ketchup and cheese, and that she will probably not eat much of it. Kyle knows that my usual is a pint of Arrogant Bastard. So, I ordered a bottle of PBR (with a glass, please). Kyle gave me this look like "Have you LOST YOUR MIND?!" As for the beer itself: Poured a yellow straw color, short fizzy head, no lacing. There's a good bit of corn in the overly carbonated beverage. Cold, it edges toward flavorlessness, but as it warmed some hops appeared in the finish (or was that dirt?). Better than some macro's, but that's not saying much. Kyle will be relieved next week when I return to ordering my "usual".

Ok - score is based on it's "style" - mass produced macro american light lager. Compare it to crap like Bud, Miller, Michelob etc., PBR is better than that swill (though it's still swill itself, IMHO). There are some places here in Philly (including noted good beer bar Sugar Moms) that offer a shot and a PBR for $3.00. It's a deal if you're on a budget!

Hmm. I guess the easiest way to say how terrible this beer is would be to quote the price of 50 cent draughts at the local bar.

Okay, so I guess they changed the formula for this beer...right. Still PBR piss water, popular among the young male crowd for an easy drunk but it holds no outstanding characteristics to write about. Hell, it has no character at all. Too many PBR's and you'll turn into a SMF. Hangover city. 100% American corn water.
