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.

bhensonb (14077) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Clean, light aroma of malt. Light brassy color with a white head that didn’t survive. Starts a bit malty, not too thin, medium carbonation, probably enough hop to balance the light malt. Better than Bud.

Can from my son. He likes this beer. So did I 30 years ago. Another macro brew that is cold wet and alcohol. Little aroma or flavor.

Ratman197 (13260) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Can poured a clear golden yellow with a white head. This is the best part of this beer. Aroma was sour malt and corn. Palate had a bit more body than your usual pale lagar. Flavor was breadlike with a very slight bitterness in the finish.

Palatable, especially on tap. Of course, I have to say that to justify what I drank all those many years ago.

Can, pasteurised. Pale straw colour highly carbonated. So terrible I thought up a limerick while trying to drink it;<!-- br --> There was a poor brewer called Brad;<!-- br --> Who’s beers were exceedingly bad;<!-- br --> So he chucked in some rice;<!-- br --> And doubled the price;<!-- br --> And sold it to the clinicaly mad.

(Can, courtesy of Swalden 28) Pours a pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of grass, corn grain, plastic, and sweaty gym socks. Flavor of corn and metallic with a watery mouthfeel.

Scopey (12504) - 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...
