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.

A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer.

Run of the mill, but still better than most of its kind. Slightly metallic taste. No aroma.

PBR is a decent light beer to have if there aren’t any others. It’s quite lacking in flavor although it does pour similar to a Coors Light for color and carbonation.

Don’t care if this beer is an icon. If you’re going to drink this type of beer there are definitely better options. No aroma with the occasional whiff of corn or cereal. Light golden and fizzy. Lightweight and heavily carbonated. Grassy and filler tasting. Like drinking Wonderbread.

From memory, not quite as good as Bud overall. I won’t waste money on this now. For the style, it deserves a good rating.

Can into pilsner glass. No aroma. Mild to flavorless and inoffensive - unless you expect flavor in your beer. Quaffing beer for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I thought I liked this beer as well as any domestic lager so I brought home a 6 pack. Compared to two other competitors the PBR had much stronger corn and alcohol taste/aroma. America’s best in 1893...hmm. Where has it ranked since then for the last 122 years? How was this #1 ranking determined? I would imbibe this again during a zombie apocalypse as a source of life-sustaining water.

473 ml can from LCBO, served child in a tulip glass. Clear straw with a full, bright white head. Clean, lightly grainy with light grassy hops. Medium light body and fairly full carbonation. Like the nose...light grains and faint grassy hops, a touch of wet cardboard, possibly; dry with minimal bitterness and a clean finish. Good ol’ PBR.

Bottle from misoula, manc. Yellow, white head. Aroma is not really there, grain and a bit of corn. Taste is bland, very slightly sweet and tiniest hint of bitterness. Fizzy and watery.
