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.

Pabst is a real beer drinkers beer. This is the kind of beer that you rip down with your buddies while watching the Sox game on NESN. Great for getting hammered off of with a solid 5% alcohol by volume content. The flavor of this beer is also far superior to similar overpriced beers such as bud, coors, and some miller products. This is truely a time-honored hero of beers.

When poured, this beer had a small white head that consisted of small bubbles that quickly diminished. There was good lacing with this brew and the body was clear and yellow in hue. It had a light malty aroma to it and it was bitter tasting from start to finish. This beer definitely lacks character as there is nothing special that I have to say about it.

This brew poured a small head of quickly disappearing fine to large sized white bubbles and a carbonated straw yellow body. It has a mild malt-hop aroma with a mild fizzy flavor of wheat and bread. It was smooth initially and had a lingering slightly bitter aftertaste.

Why is it that every couple years I here someone saying that they got good reviews at a beer tasting contest? This beer is crap. If I had a yard I would drink Straub while mowing. I'll pass.

Well for a really cheap Macro-Brew this isn't as bad as it could be. Head evaporated quickly, with absolutely no lacing whatsoever. Color wasn't bad. Not much aroma and it seemed a bit light on the carbonation. Flavor wasn't too bad, but also on the light side. If you have to go with a super cheap macro, this one will do.

Really enjoyed PBR growing up in Milwaukee but I hadn't had any in years. It's got a clean light refreshing flavor and a dry, very brief finish. Great lawnmower beer.

Hadn't drank this since I was a kid in blue jeans with a pack of Camels rolled up in my t-shirt sleeve (before they put filters on them). Much better than I remember. A good flavor with a hoppy taste that tells you that you are drinking real beer again. This will be my every day beer and you can't beat the price of $9.99 for the 30 pack. I highly recommend you try it again.

Taste is almost non-existant, which can be considered a plus or a minus. Head? I've never poured one of these, doesnt seem like the right thing to do. When served ice cold at a poker night it is a nice refreshing drink that everyone can enjoy in quantity, or through a funnel. If you are looking for a beer to enjoy slowly over a tv show, this is not it. It does get higher marks than i would normally give for being so cheap however, and for tasting slightly better than the mid-range standbys (Coors, Miller, Bud).

Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal). Flavor is moderately sweet. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Adjuncty sweet, nearly odorless. No thank you.
