OK, so itís not the greatest beer on the planet, but it won the blue ribbon. you canít deny that. and at least when i lived in california it costs like 5 dollars for a twelve pack, and at that price... you canít do better. long live pbr.

This has almost 2400 ratings on RB, and today is the first time Iíve heard of it. 355ml bottle BB Aug 2015, 4.6%. Brewed in the US of A since 1844. Clear yellow, sparkling, small foamy white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is light and musty, cardboard box, new shoes, polish. Body is medium, quite foamy, some spritzy carbonation. Taste is very light - sodawater with boiled sweets, earth, potato peel and some solvent. Itís OK if you can see past the solvent.

A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer.

Run of the mill, but still better than most of its kind. Slightly metallic taste. No aroma.

PBR is a decent light beer to have if there arenít any others. Itís quite lacking in flavor although it does pour similar to a Coors Light for color and carbonation.

Donít care if this beer is an icon. If youíre going to drink this type of beer there are definitely better options. No aroma with the occasional whiff of corn or cereal. Light golden and fizzy. Lightweight and heavily carbonated. Grassy and filler tasting. Like drinking Wonderbread.

From memory, not quite as good as Bud overall. I wonít waste money on this now. For the style, it deserves a good rating.

Can into pilsner glass. No aroma. Mild to flavorless and inoffensive - unless you expect flavor in your beer. Quaffing beer for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I thought I liked this beer as well as any domestic lager so I brought home a 6 pack. Compared to two other competitors the PBR had much stronger corn and alcohol taste/aroma. Americaís best in 1893...hmm. Where has it ranked since then for the last 122 years? How was this #1 ranking determined? I would imbibe this again during a zombie apocalypse as a source of life-sustaining water.

473 ml can from LCBO, served child in a tulip glass. Clear straw with a full, bright white head. Clean, lightly grainy with light grassy hops. Medium light body and fairly full carbonation. Like the nose...light grains and faint grassy hops, a touch of wet cardboard, possibly; dry with minimal bitterness and a clean finish. Good olí PBR.
