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.

I like PBR, but it would be foolish to try and convince anyone it’s actually good. As far as cheap beers go, PBR is the one least likely to give me a hangover, and taken in 12oz can doses, it is very easy to control how drunk you get. I can’t imagine this actually has 5% a/v, it surely doesn’t pack the punch of (the inferior tasting) Budweiser.

Scopey (11555) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
24oz thanks to Fergus at level 42. It pours clear yellow with a massive white head. The aroma is paper, sweetcorn, cornbread, light sulphur, white bread and not much else. The taste is crisp, grassy, white bread, soda water and touch of corn with a dry finish. Light - medium body and high, foamy carbonation. Aroma isn’t great. Taste is pretty light, so at least you can chug a lot...

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. PBR is the "white trash chic" trend beer today. I have always liked it. It has a great hop flavor and is very smooth.

Beer #2 from the LCBO gift bucket a co-worker gave me (thanks for that by the way, my revenge will not be pretty) Clear gold pour, fast fizzy head, a tad bit of lace. Mainly hay in the aroma, a bit of corn, some actual malt presence! Hay, some bready malt, a bit grassy. Watery body with some malty aftertaste.. Begrudging credit where it’s due, it slays most of the other blando’s easily. Now where the hell are my monocle and tight black jeans?

Bottled, from k-market Karjaa. Pours clear yellow with a light white head. hay, grain and water in the smell and taste. Clean, boring, watery.

Drank straight from a bottle. Has an aroma of bread malts and light earthiness. Flavor is bread malts. Mostly bland, but crisp and highly carbonated.

Aroma discreto, cor dourada e espuma branca. Sabor marcante dos maltes. Boa para uma cervejada.

Maybe a little corn in the aroma after the pour to a foamy head that quickly dissipates. A little corn sweetness and hop bite, but not much of either. I recall my mid-1980s softball team went to a bar after games, everyone threw 2 bucks on the bar and we drank PBR until the singles were gone. Except they never were. Pabst was inexpensive even in the last century.
