It's not good, so why do we love it? Is it because it makes us thing of paneled basements and the stolen pleasures of Dad's forbidden stash? Whatever. Just make sure to drink it really really cold.

I drank this on the beach today..and it did the job..it's one of those thirst quenching but NOT good beers that i would never buy unless i was going to the beach (cans only) and had no choice..but i must say..very creamy mouthfeel although the carbination was a bit low..everything else mirrored adjuncty american lager though..but not all that bad.

You can actually find this on draught in Champaign, Illinois. Surpringly good for a frat beer. Weak color, nose and palate, but richer taste than I expected and highly drinkable like I did. Grandpa's beer has come of age.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2004 Too bad this beer is trendy and all the hippies like to order it at the local pub. It's a small notch above the other BMC suspects. It actually has some malt flavor and its an easy one to chug back. Quite a thirst quencher on a hot day and it doesn't have too much of that corn flavor showing through. Standard stuff but a decent pick up for some swillin and chillin.

I have often driven by the big rotating sign in downtown Milwaukee that has the big blue ribbon on it, and have wondered how this beer tastes. Now I know, and it is pretty crappy. But for the price, it cannot be beat, and it is a great alternative to that other Milwaukee beer.

It may not rate high but when compared to other cheap beers Pabst takes the Blue Ribbon.

I don't know where this beer got a blue ribbon, but those people were on crack. This stuff is water and...well there is nothing else to say.

Bitter, bitter, and more bitter. My Wisconsonite friend swears by the stuff. So cheap, yet so bad. My stomach and GI tract did not appreciate this, suprisingly, I can take live yeast culture but not PBR.

Better than malt likka, worse than Busch. Tart, clingy aftertaste. Goes to show you that you can make beer out of only sugar, rice, cornstarch and yeast.
