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.

This was the keg at a friend's party. Um... well... not much to say, other than I guess it beats Bud Light. Maybe. It's easy to chug, but that's all it has going for it.

Golden, with a medium-sized white head that is almost entirely diminishing. However, the lacing IS rather nice, so extra points for that. Sour grain aroma. Sour flavor initially, finish is slightly sweet. Extremely watery palate. Nothing sets this apart from other American standards. I'd like to know what the "blue ribbon" was won for...

this I bought in the long neck 12 oz bottles In appearance this is not bad at all average on the whole, but looks much better than most macros in a glass, the head is quite impressive and lingers to a fine lace down the whole glass. Smell is slightly odd..hard to place a alittle sour some wheat ? maybe..but not totally unpleasant. Taste is pretty average for its style but at the price thats good there actually is a slight after taste with this beer..unlike many American macros Feels grat and is very drinkable as a result..all in all a good American lager..no frills but beware in my opinion its far better this way ( in the bottle) than in the can

This beer sucks in every way. Better yet, this whole company is pathetic. They are in the business of buying up a lot of good, old, unique beers and turning them into different versions of their blue ribbon crap. I HATE THESE CREEPS.

I would drink this over some of the other mass produced beers that the kids are chugging these days. It only cost me 2.99 for a sixer, so it didn't waste my money in the whole scope of things.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 I prefer the bottled or canned version to tap. It pours with a typical bright gold body and a thin white head. The aroma is corny with a little bit of grass. Not in any way offensice. The taste is light and refreshing with corn and some light carrots. A crisp finish. Pretty good considering the style you are drinking. My preferred macro swill.

Clear gold. Pillowy white head. Sweet, grainy aroma. Mild DMS. Fizzy body. Very light, slightly grainy, bland flavour. Finish is mineral & metallic.

I like this beer for sentimental reasons. I used to order a 40oz of this stuff, served in a rusty bucket at the Delta Cafe in Portland, Oregon. This place served the best damn ribs this side of Memphis. Anyway the beer is best served very cold. Has a slight metallic taste. Other than that it is your typical "American" beer. Long live the Delta!
