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.

maybe because it is flavorless (in the most affectionate way) or maybe that it just goes down smooth, but i really enjoyed this beer. this macro isn’t overwhelmingly sweet and neither is it complex and bitter. it’s refreshing when ice cold, smooth and tastes great with some lime and salt (sue me, it’s summer time and dirt cheap!). pours very fizzy and its color is a pale yellow. it actually tastes better out of a twelve ounce can! i love me some pbr!

0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Quite pale, with a decent head, not too much carbonation. Taste and aroma are almost non existent as expected. This is for hot summer days. My bottle was imported by a Swedish company and it had 4.5% ABV. Also the new edition of 1001 Beers You Should Try Before You Die lists the original Pabst ABV as 4.7%. So, I’m not sure if this quite the same version which is sold in the USA. Probably, does not make much difference anyway.

If you are going to drink bad beer. This is the one to drink. It is by far the cheapest.

Flaska systembolaget. Gulaktig vätska. Lätt brödig doft med majs. Vattnig, tunn och sötaktig smak. Lite gräs, majs och söt malt.

Really can’t get much worse than this. The only real good thing this is good for is $3 pitchers to help you get a cheap buzz. Oh for those college days again.

An American classic. Tastes like nostalgia. Lawnmower beer that is refreshing. Widely available and loved by hipsters.

Tried from a bottle from an Irish pub in Brooklyn. Pours clear yellow with a light white head. hay, grain and water in the smell and taste. Clean, boring, watery. It’s better than bud but not by much.

This is a good beer for what it is. It has a nice clean taste and it goes down smooth.
