I make no aploogies for rating PBR! Wait, no, I do: I bought for a friend, and because it was in the house, I might as well rate it, right? Right? God, I feel so dirty. Alcohol and corn aroma. Flavor is what I imagine corn soda would taste like. Spritzy and refresing, like a drink of club soda. Exactly like a drink of club soda.

This is one of those beers that falls into the 'drink to get drunk' category. As long as you think of it that way, it is quite good - better than bud in my opinion.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2004 I like PBR. I had my first one last week in a bottle, and have since picked up a six pack in cans, which wasn't as good. But the bottled version has a decent malt profile and enough bitterness to balance well. It reminds me of a watered down Pilsner Urquell. I can't see why this beer gets such a bad rap.

it inspires nostalgia; the only reason i give it an eight overall. Sharp but unfulfilling.

Slightly better than most of its buddies, also cheaper. Aftertaste is pretty nasty though.

This beer tastes like a men's locker room smells. The after-taste has some real staying power so be ready for it to fully engulf you in its digustingness.

Light yellow. Resembles urine in more ways than one. No head. No flavor. I seriously do not like this beer, and haven't had it in a while. However, I have decided to rate it so that people know how unacceptable it is on my list. I was shocked to discover they sell PBR in 40oz bottles in Montana. If you have any taste at all, fork over the extra $5 and select something in a 12 oz brown bottle.

Eh....very light....almost no aroma...very watery...I dunno...just a typical American light lager. Probably pretty damn good for what it's supposed to be according to style. Not my favorite style of beer...but would be pretty damn good if it was 115 degrees outside right now...but as it stands...it's 15 below zero right now...and a heartier beer would be better. :-)

Sample - 12 oz. can. Had a few buddies over recently and one of them had left a few of these in the fridge, so I gave it a whirl. Not alot to speak of here. No unpleasant aroma, but no real aroma to speak of. Smells like nothing but the can. Pours and creates a giant white head that I blinked and it was gone, only to leave a tiny tiny white lacing around the top. The beer itself is an almost crystal clear golden color - yes, urine-esque. Very flat tasting - little to no carbonation to speak of. This is good because alot of Am.Std's have too much, and the carbonation kills the flavor making it just taste like fizz. Here, all you get is a not totally unpleasant alcoholic twang. Alcoholic aftertaste as well. While not totally disgusting, its not something I will go out of my way to drink again. Can't really explain the recent increase in popularity of this, other than that it is different that the mindless choices of Bud or Bud Light, coupled with the fact that it is dirt cheap. I really wish they would drop the 1893 blue ribbon message though - It was 111 years ago - GET OVER IT! Quick - someone hand me a Coors Extra Gold!
