RERATE: Had many from can at local band bar. Amazingly good taste - you wouldn’t believe it. No foulness that you would expect (a la Beast) - subtle taste and not overly carbonated. Tastes like beer should, not water like Bud Light. PBR & High Life are neck & neck for underrated beers of the century. OLD: Enjoyed out of the bottle recently. Surprising grainy aftertaste is delightful, almost wheatish. Better than any standard macrobrew and most midlevels, too.
Cheap as crap, so I would call it underpriced. Enjoyable on tap (yep, many bars here actually tap this stuff up) and really isn’t bad. Even my buddy’s girlfriend’s princess pals drink it.

One of those beers that is nostalgic for some people. Picked up a 30 pack over the summer more for the humor than the flavor. "PBR me A.S.A.P."!!! Not a bad beer for a hot Saturday afternoon while mowing the lawn.

Tastes like a Busch. Nothing special...just a regular beer for a poor man.

Well, it’s no Beast, but it’ll pass this Beer Expert’s tests. I like the ribbon on the can...I wish I were a BLUE RIBBON CHAMP like PBR!!! Yay for BEER!!!

What do you want? A PBR. What do you need? A Pabst Blue Ribbon. What do you want? A PBR. Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. Lol the jingle always gets to me. Not a bad bonging beer and game beer drinking beer.

Sweet aroma, pale yellow, with white fluffy head. Grassy, sweet, mildly bitter. Actually a pleasant mouthfeel. Ordinary.

Established in 1844. The beer must have been really bad back then for Pabst to win a blue ribbon.
