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.

Couple freebies at the Totom Resorts fish fry in MN. Not very good, drinkable but I could only have two before I decided water was a better choice.

A boring watery pale lager with aroma and taste of corn, sweet malt and grass. Pretty bad!!

Can. Looks great, with a great head on it for a time. Doesn’t smell great, hints of rice. Dry, again, rice, with a hint of malt bite and sweetness. This is pretty plain, worth a try and by no means bad for its style, but overall its a beer lacking in flavour.

Poured on tap. I will rate this has if there were no labels, if none cared about ownership, and if this was accidentally defined as a craft helles, lager, or kolsch. Delicate and grain driven. No hop profile or yeast driven flavor. Perfect clarity to showcase the consistent process. Flavor is minimal. A thin brilliant and bright straw hue with very thin white head.

Can from sobeys. Pours fizzy yellow with a dissipating white head. Taste and smells of corn. A bit over carbonated. Not undrinkable.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Bright pale straw color. White 2 finger head lasting around 3 minutes. Average legs and activity. Faint aromas and flavors of corn, citrus and sugar. A lot more bitter than sweet, slightly vinous. Slick light body with prickly carbonation. Faint finish, but quite long, ending with a dry bitter smoky roasted corn aftertaste and fake sweetness. Overall : Fresh but bland and overly accessible. Too bitter for a lager in my taste.

Not so bad for a cheap beer . Golden color . Medium-sized, white head , which quickly disappeared. Aroma of corn and hay . When it got warmer, notes of alcohol showed up. Sweet , malty taste with some bitterness at the end . Drinkable.

Can. Easy to obtain and cheap American lager. Just like Yuengling not that special, but still better than all the ’light’-brews that you can find. Drinkable when cold, easy to quench on a hot day. If you are in to nothing that special, Pabst is quite okay for a while.
