Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.

Under the leadership of Otto Koehler, City Brewery began brewing quality beer from the water discovered in the "Country of 1100 Springs." It was named Pearl, just like the pearl-like bubbles that rose in every freshly poured glass of Pearl Beer. Only natureís finest ingredients and pure water allow the delicate flavor of Pearl to sparkle through-Since 1886.

this was my CHEAP beer of choice when I lived in Texas and rented a cockroach infesred apartment for $75 a week... why does Miller make so many awful brews? Their Miller high-life is the best they make and that aint sayin much!

This actually isnít that bad. Better than quite a few macros, some light but decent flavors. Good body and carbonation for drinking in the summer.

Looking through a list of old time beers an ran across this one that I had back in the day and forgot it existed. Must not have been too memorable, bad or good.

Grabbed a 12 pack of this just for a walk down memory lane. Drank alot of pearl when I was a teen and hadnít seen it on the shelves in probably the last 20 to 30 years. As a teen I would pretty much drink any old beer this one had to have been better than it is now to have made me keep coming back. Think someone took feed corn, mashed it, and canned it. Taste like corn water and that is it. Not very good at all. Oh well another beer of my past that I just donít get why I was drinking it all those years ago. Maybe cause it was cheap.

12oz snubby bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a lighter golden with no head. Aroma of grains, corn, and sweetness. Taste of the same with light hops. This light bodied brew always did the trick when playing beer pool plu sit had the puzzles on crown.

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.

(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.
