COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.

http://www.pabstblueribbon.com

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.

Yellow. White head that stuck to the glass for a long time. Sweet water. Nothing but an alcohol delivery system.

65 cl bottle in Hong Kong, 11.90 HK$, 4.7%. Clear yellow color with a thin but nice white head. Some american hops on the nose. Aroma is fairly grainy with hints of american hops. Taste is flat. Body is thin, watery, carbonated, Dry finish, ultra short. Fine as a session beer when ultra cold.

No aroma, short lasting white colored head. Pale straw color. An indistinctive taste easy to drink as it has no flavor and no palate. Watery feel.

If there are three things I hate in this world, which is bs since I hate a lot of stuff, it’s hipster. Followed closely by Yale students, and people who think Benidick Cuminsnatch can act, screw them. This beer is at least funish to drink if you’re in the right setting, which usually involves redneck, incest and loud metal music. However the sheer stigma of this beer ruins most of it. Just drink Tecate, same effect, less shame, and hey it teaches you spanish.

Drank plenty of this in college before it was trendy, because it was affordable. Cereal grains mostly, not much else.

Not sure what the hipsters in America see in this beer, I’d much rather a microbrew than this macro swill. Anyway, this is typical pale lager fare: golden colour; watery; white, fluffy, shortlived head; weakly flavoured, etc.

Blandness incarnate.

Dear god. The worst homebrew is better than this. PBR is the worst of the cheap beers. Avoid like the plague. If you must drink it, chill it to near freezing.

ComradeK (977) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2014
473ml can. Pours a clear pale gold, with a medium white head, which lasts well but leaves no lacing. No real aroma, aside from booziness. There are hops there, but they offer no specific flavour. Soap, cardboard and generic sweetness in the mid-palate fade to a featureless finish. At least there’s no metallic aftertaste. Very dull, but I’ve had worse.

Transfer from BA review from 6-21-12 - Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance - Served a light golden/ straw color with a medium head. The head faded very rapidly to leave almost no lacing. Smell - Very mild in the aroma department. There is a light corn and malt aroma as well as a somewhat papery aroma as well. Overall though very light. Taste - The taste throughout has a malty and very light rice and corn like flavor. Just as was with the nose the flavors are rather light. Mixed with this flavor is a light earthy flavor that comes in toward the end of the taste. Nothing too offensive but nothing to special either. Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is below average and the carbonation level is above average. Both make it super easy to down, and mixed with the lighter flavors, it is more like drinking seltzer. Overall - A watery, easy drinking, tolerable beer. Appropriate for hot days outside while session drinking; such as while tailgating or the like. Nothing to drink when looking for something with a lot of flavor and feel though.
