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.

This Beer has flavor?!?!?! Simply uninspired. Yet when you’re low on cash a buck fifty for a 40, oh well it’s (loosely) beer.(Bonus: FREE paper bag w/purchase!)Like water for hopheads.

Lacking in appearance and aroma Pabst Blue Ribbon still comes through with a clean refreshing flavor that’s leaves you wanting another.

PBR is a good value but lacks a lot in complexity. Consistent and not bad if your hot but would not recommend for any other occasion.

Scopey (11793) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
24oz thanks to Fergus at level 42. It pours clear yellow with a massive white head. The aroma is paper, sweetcorn, cornbread, light sulphur, white bread and not much else. The taste is crisp, grassy, white bread, soda water and touch of corn with a dry finish. Light - medium body and high, foamy carbonation. Aroma isn’t great. Taste is pretty light, so at least you can chug a lot...

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. PBR is the "white trash chic" trend beer today. I have always liked it. It has a great hop flavor and is very smooth.

Beer #2 from the LCBO gift bucket a co-worker gave me (thanks for that by the way, my revenge will not be pretty) Clear gold pour, fast fizzy head, a tad bit of lace. Mainly hay in the aroma, a bit of corn, some actual malt presence! Hay, some bready malt, a bit grassy. Watery body with some malty aftertaste.. Begrudging credit where it’s due, it slays most of the other blando’s easily. Now where the hell are my monocle and tight black jeans?
