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

http://www.pabstblueribbon.com

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.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2003 One of the better CHEAP american standards.Good very cold but very bad warm. Yellow with hardly any aroma.

Now we're talking mass produced American standard! Kind of depressing if this is what America Brewing is known for. Anyway, PBR is drinkable, slightly better than Bud. Make sure it was on ice before drinking.

This is one of the worse beers i have had, i bought a six pack once and never tried it again, the aftertaste is bad, smells like a mass produced cheap swill.

One of my preferred americal lagers. Maybe it's the can design, maybe something else. Less cloyingly sweet than others with a better finish. Serve ice cold. Decent choice for a can you're gonna consume quickly.

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.
