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.

Poured from the can, it has a light, sunny yellow color and a thick but light, whipped-cream-like white head. The aroma has a light, dry sweetness underneath, but it is predominated by a dull mustiness that is expected but doesn’t veer towards unpleasant like many in the style. The mild cereal sweetness is more pronounced in the flavor and melds with a wheat-like, almost lemony tanginess. Overall, it has more and better flavor than most mass-produced light lagers, making it a fine option to have for nights when you just want a light-tasting beer.

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.
