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.

Sight: Golden yellow with a thick head. Smell: not much aroma. Slight hay and bitter notes. Taste: Taste like a worse Budweiser. medium body and no hopy notes. Aftertaste: Short and mellow. Not much flavor lingers. Overall a good cheap beer, but not something to drink for pleasure.

Tap at Memory Lanes. I realize it should be out of a can but honestly does it really matter? Piss yellow and head just isn’t happening. Taste is super cereal and malty and I say that just to be nice. Smell is bad. Taste is worse. Not a horrible choice in the right environment but there are not a lot of right environments for this beer. Ugh.

Hipsters love it but that doesn’t make it good. Good option to drink on the cheap if nothing better is available.

Pours a clear straw with one finger of foamy white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is corn and grainy malt. Taste follows suit. Light body and watery mouth feel, with moderately high carbonation. Foul. It doesn’t smell as if there’s something actually nasty going on in there, but it sure tastes that way. Cheap, horrible swill. Actual sink pour territory - I couldn’t finish it. Literally the only reason I tried this was to get the tick in my 1001 Beers list, and I regret it. No joke - do not waste your time by subjecting your taste buds to this. This makes Bud Light or Molson Canadian look like a top-shelf alternative.

Weak and watery. The best one can say about this it is drinkable and not unpleasant. Hardly tastes like beer.

Regular watery macro corn lager. Fairly clean but with some corn sweetness and astringent finish.

On tap. Comes a pale gold with a decent white head. Mild aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt and corn. Not unpleasant. Mild and thin.

Pours a pale golden with a medium white head that disappears in a blink of an eye and leave close to no lacing. Nose is of corn and water, pretty weak. Taste is of corn and a little hay, nothing else. Body is light and mouthfeel is watery. In fact, I’d argue that tap water is a little tastier. Overall an easy to drink brew, brainless.

Straw yellow with foamy head. Smells of corn and bread. Watery taste with not much going on. Cheap beer for drinking after yard work or binge drinking with buddies while watching the game or race. Probably one of the first beers I ever had, our neighbor growing up drank enough of this stuff to float a battleship and I may have snuck one or two back in the day.

I drank this in college when it was cheap and I did not know any better. Thankfully I received a beer education while living in Europe and never have to drink this one again.
