Pretty bad, yet affordably priced beer. If you're on a budget go for Stroh's or Schiltz Bull instead, it's way better though apparently for some reason pabst is now "hip". Pabst tastes too much like a light beer, Coors Lite in particular. At least it's not Milwaukee's Best Lite, Miller High Life, or Schlitz Ice though. Those are truly un-swillable beers. This one goes down easy - there's just not much taste to it.

It ain't handsome. It ain't ambitious. But when you're low on funds, it's the best you can get.

I've been drinkin Pabst since the early 70's. It's my favorite beer, and it's flavor is the best. You can call me the Pabst Man!!

Pretty decent. Very mild, almost like a light beer. Tasty, but watery. Nice for a change, but doubt it is anyone's all-time favorite.

Beer is light in the yeast, malt, and hops. This actually tastes like water. But oh well..

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 I rate this beer higher based on value. Better than most swill from BMC, it is overly carbonated and warm it is just horrid. But, hey, it’s cheaper than budmillercoors and I DO get a tad of malt on the finish. There are not many other flavors there and the adjunct taste is reasonably attenuated.

Ahh yes, Pabst Blue Ribbon. A beer for all occassions. Assuming of course that by all occassions I'm only refering to playing beer pong.

This is better in bottles. I think the movie Blue Velvet is keeping this beer alive. It was better in the '70s, but then again so was Schmidt's, Schlitz, Olympia, Schaefer...the list goes on. If I can find it in bottles, I buy it. Otherwise, avoid. The beer develops a metallic taste in cans, more than other beers.

I was unimpressed by this beer. It's certainly more satisfying than Budweiser and the like, but save your money for some Sam Adams. You'll thank yourself for it.

A nice light tasting beer from a classic company. what a light beer is supposed to taste like except it isn't light.
