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.

You can never go wrong with a Pabst Blue Ribbon. Cheap, tasty, and drinkable. Only problem with it are those damn hipsters ruining it for us.

Bottle from systembolaget Sweden. Short white head that goes down to a lasting lace. The color is watered yellow. Aroma of violer vegetabilier and small bitterness in the taste.

It’s a commercial american beer. I’m kinda offended drinking this really. Tastes like nothing. Maybe a little bit malt and a slight bitterness, but this is clearly targeted at the mass market.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. To be honest, this was nowhere near as bad as I was expecting. Really clean and easy going for their version of our export. Not too shabby at all

Paid $1.39 at a local gas station. I feel like a shit head for rating this but I wanted to rate this next to another pale lager. "Grain Belt". Color is crystal clear color with weak carbonation. Almost no head. Aroma is corn and sweet malt.

Flavor is about as bland and flavorless as it gets. Nothing offensive here just no flavor. Light sweet bread notes. If it warms up you can get faint lager yeast and grassy dead hops. I guess PBR is reserved for hipsters that don’t care about anything in life or broke college kids. Drinkable but why bother??? Also, Grain Belt wins this battle of pale lagers, in case anybody actually reads this review.

The biggest hipster beer out there. No flavor to speak of. Not good. Go get some real beer.

C’est certain que si on compare la Pabst avec une Hill Farmstead, elle va manger une méchante volée! Mais si on la compare avec des bières de sa catégorie, c’est à dire avec des lagers peu dispendieuses, elle se démarque selon moi. Oui, ça goûte les céréales bas de gamme et il n’y a pratiquement aucune profondeur, mais elle est aussi exempte de défauts souvent présents. Elle cache bien son alcool, se boit extrêmement bien, et n’a aucune saveur particulièrement désagréable. À mon avis, une très bonne lager commerciale.

"Hein*ken? That’s sh*t man, Pabst Blue Ribbon!" Hmm.. Clear straw, head goes fast. Dull grainy aroma has little nuances, bit roasted rubber, ugly. Light and watery, low carbonation, short finish of corn mostly, slightly sweet. Dull, diluted, boring.
