I’ve had one or two too many kegs and cases of the Pibber. Drink this beer in volume. incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2007 Ah, PBR. Oh so tasty. Making quite a comeback in the Mpls/St Paul area. Almost every bar seems to carry it now, and even some fancier ones. College type kids/emo punks like to drink it to be "different" You do just plain feel cool when having a PBR. Still get odd looks from the waitress at times when ordered. sometimes accompnied by a "what did you say" the PBR abbreviation is sometimes hard for them to figure out i guess. Im 24, and i KNow the history of this fine WI brew(know brewed in TX though, bastards) AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Pabst Blue Ribbon is totally awesome, in a nostalgic, broke-ass, college kid kind of way.
As much as I love this stuff, it is an example of watery, yellow, adjunct sugary garbage. But you look pretty cool drinking one out of a can in a fancy restaurant (and there are a few that serve it just for that purpose).
If you want to see what your dad means when he tells you about how tough he had it as a kid, pick up a six-pack of PBR. It’s certainly worth the three bucks. Arayaga2 (2224) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2005
It’s a clear value leader, and not badly flavored, either. PBR is the best of the crappy beers, and really hasn’t earned its rep as an actually crappy beer. Besides... it’s an institution! crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 $.99 tallboy can’t beat that, haven’t had this before but I think I might get it from now on when going into a gas station with only a buck or two in my pocket, way better than bud light by far, and I could taste my beer, it wasn’t that bad at all and actually was better than some beers i’ve paid way too much for.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2005 I don’t know...there’s something kind of charming about this beer (mostly the price). Honestly, I prefer it over most major domestic lagers. That said, PBR is over carbonated and tastes cheap. Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Commits most of the sins that cheap beers are known for -- smells bad, thin yellow color, white foamy head. At least it’s more flavorful than other beers in the price range, without the rancid tastes of Milwaukee’s Best. Good for large attendance parties on your bill, when in college. At least it’s not a light beer. giarcsr (104) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Ah, a classic. What can you say about PBR that hasn’t been already said. So I’ll leave at that. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Light gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy, touch of cardboard. A medium to light bodied pale lager. Malts are sweet, corn and cardboard. Slightly spicy hops. Little to no carbonation. Kind of bland and not much flavor, its not that objectionable, but that could just be the sinus infection talking. It is way better than most of the usual BMC products. It swill, but its OK for swill. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is sweet. MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2005
What can I say? Probably the worst beer I’ve ever had. And that’s REALLY saying something, as I’ve had some really terrible beers.
