2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can. Not the worst macro lager Iíve had - itís a good bad beer. The smell is a little ugly and unappealing, but the taste is fine, just a touch of toast and slightly bitter. Some basic cereals and basic malts, nothing fancy with the light hops. Light body, well carbonated. What can you say, itís a "classic" - whatever that means.

No major deficiencies. A macro light lager with a little but more nose and body than competitors, and has a nice pour with head retention too. Good lawnmower.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(can - 12 oz - The Esquire - San Antonio, TX) Pale gold pour with a soapy white head. Generic beer aroma with some light corn and grass. Flavor is mild corn, grass and can taste. Watery but refreshing when in a hot climate.

This is definitely better than water, because there is a small flavor of pale ale in the palate. After that, it is all water. Whatís not to like? (actually, whatís to like?)

Sweet can. Good all icy cold. Woman beside me asked sincerely: "is this beer or water?" Answer: yes.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poor, poor Pearl. A beer that I very much enjoyed while in Texas in the mid-seventies, reduced to a name brand sans a real Pearl brewery, with nary a resemblence to its former self.
Pours very light, with a small head, and pretty fizzy. Looks, and somewhat smells, like a cream soda. Very light on the palate, thin and watery. Fizz and some cereal grain flavor, with very little in the way of hops.
Iím almost sorry I even tried this beer, again. I would have preferred remembering it as it once was.

In the can at Taste of Texas in San Antonio. Pours pale yellow with a fizzy white head. Vegetal marmite corn pone aroma. This as water and far less refreshing. Is this beer slowly dissolving its can? So metallic that it seems so.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
NOTE: I bought this 12 pack of 12 oz. cans in Beaumont, Tx. Pearl beer is not sold in Louisiana. Pearl has a thick, white head, and very clear and bubbly golden appearance, and a faint aroma. The taste, while mild, has a roasted aspect, which prevents it from being bland. Mouth-feel is light and watery. Pearl finishes crisp and satisfying. Overall, this is a good beer and I recommend a sample, if it can be found.
