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.

This beer makes me cringe. It’s pretty popular around me as I live in a college town. But for me I’d rather pay the extra money and drink something that doesn’t taste like it was filtered thru a jock strap.

Good cheap beer willing to drink at any time, get by the crate or by the can also very easy to get. Great with any food and nice to have when grilling. Overall very good - Rated with Beer Rater for Windows Phone

Bu un lendemain de cuite au réveil dans un dinner de Toronto, alors vous vous doutez bien que je n’ai foutrement aucune idée de son goût... Vomi à la rigueur...

Aroma is light and somewhat musty with hay, corn and hints of boiled vegetables. Flavour is also rather light with some boiled vegetables and slight malt notes. Perhaps also some butter. Dry and slightly leathery finish. Very watery and straightforward.

Gets a bit better as ice cold in sauna; some cider-like green apple notes come through and the unpleasant flavours step aside. Grade in sauna: 1.5.

Refreshingly clear taste and golden color. Extraordinarily pure and free from polluting elements. Not just the best beer of America, but the best in the whole world as well.

Pale, flat and boring. Does it get any more generic than this? Take a pass.

12oz can. Pale straw color with white head. Sweet malt aroma. Very thin palate. Very light taste. Not good.

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Pale golden with small head. Rather bland lager, but I’d probably drink this over a budweiser. That’s about as nice as I can be.

From can while having my haircut. Not the worst macro out there. Thin, metallic nose. A little cardboard. Taste is...well...there isn’t really a lot of taste. Which, for a macro, I guess, is a good thing. As the beer warmed, it did not suffer from that horrible cornlike sweetness that its peers have. Some basic straw notes. A pinch of bitterness.
