0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 35,5cl bottle@home in lager glass@approx 5 degrees C. Re-rating this beer as I thought I was drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon but was in effect drinking a re-branded Old Milwaukee! Humbug and my rating shows it! Pours clear light yellow with finger of white head with sufficient retention. Very faint aroma of malt and corn. This is also reflected in the almost nonexistent taste. Very faint malt and hops and no off tastes makes this close to drinking water with alcohol. Refreshing on a hot day I can imagine, but what is the point of drinking virtually tasteless beer like this? Will re-rate if I ever get a real Pabst Blue Ribbon.

It has a nice and moderate foam, a faint aroma of floral hops and the taste is also somewhat anonymous. The watery fullness with some slight caramel malt and a sweetness which is probably a little higher than the European standard lagers. Hop bitterness is a bit spicy and really very pleasant, but still lacks some malt richness and character fixed hopping before it comes into line with the European tradition of lagers.

Every time I try a beer like this, it follows much better beers and Iím forced to play the comparison game. Iíll try to avoid that part of it. Draft pour pint at Razzals. I keep ordering beers like this that I havenít ticked yet, hoping to find a macro that I truly enjoy. This task has proved itself difficult. This beer could be considered refreshing, but that depends on just how thirsty I am. This beer cost me about half the price of the majority of all other drafts, so itís hard to complain. But I will anyway. I drink beer because I enjoy the flavor. This doesnt really have any. Closer to a water than a beer. I can understand why people love this beer. Because they donít love beer. Since there is no flavor to be bad, I canít really hate too much, but this isnít worth drinking more than the amount needed to properly rate this. I feel accomplished today.

0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Quite pale, with a decent head, not too much carbonation. Taste and aroma are almost non existent as expected. This is for hot summer days. My bottle was imported by a Swedish company and it had 4.5% ABV. Also the new edition of 1001 Beers You Should Try Before You Die lists the original Pabst ABV as 4.7%. So, Iím not sure if this quite the same version which is sold in the USA. Probably, does not make much difference anyway.

If you are going to drink bad beer. This is the one to drink. It is by far the cheapest.
