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.

Better than most watery american macros, though the blue ribbon must have come from a color blind judge.

draught. thin head. yellow. watery but still noticeable beer taste. A little sour. not much to like in this beer besides the price.

(Bottle) When desperation sets in... reach for the Blue Ribbon! Pours a thin white head and a yellow body. Faint aroma. Well over-carbonated. Typical cheap brew with some above 'cheap' characteristics like less watery and more flavour.

not bad for a cheap beer. no overpowering adjunct flavor. beats any AB or MB product

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 One of the better cheap beers out there. Watery. Has a better flavor than Bud or Miller. Good beer when you have no money. I have a friend that either drinks Strohs or Pabst. We drink it regularly out on the boat in the summer. It's good when you are baking in the hot sun. I do know a few bars that have PBR on tap and it's good. Well, it's not great but it's fun to drink. Shits and giggles. Ok. PBR is my guilty pleasure. PBR makes me proud to be alive. PBR ME ASAP!!!!!!

I truly like this beer. I have had better tasting beers, but for the price, it is my day to day beer no question. MUCH better than the rest of the macros, ie bud, miller, etc

Finally found this beauty hidden behind some stuff at a local store! Yellow, fizzy head. Light hops, quite a bit of sugar and some grass in the nose. Spritzy...oh man, i can't handle this. Sourish, tinny and relatively disgusting with a rancid bitter finish. I feel for you Oakes, even 355mL of this is way too much. I'll take Florisgaarden, yes please.

Far better than I expected. It complemented my halloween costume (a construction worker) quite nicely.

another economic feasable beer. i still know people who go around looking for places that have this beer on tap, they live in california though.

So its cheap ($3.69 a six) - that does not necessarily mean that it is a bad beer. Beats all the macros in my opinion. No pretenses - just a good old-fashioned American beer that does not get the attention it deserves due to a small advertising budget. Decent "beer" aroma - not skunky at all. Kind of a sweet hoppy aftertaste - goes down smooth.
