A tall can for $.99, how could I resist? Well, it's better than Bud, that's the nicest thing I can say!

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2005 This may be the most ghetto brew out there. When bars sell it for .50 cents a pint, you know something is wrong. But it is the best macro out there. BUY ME.....BUY ME NOW!!!!!!

Crappy. Its certainly a step above Beast but not that much better. Could be one of the least offensive of the macro swill category.

This should be the "king of (macro) beers". Sure, it's a typical corn/rice swill, but it has a decent flavor and....wait, do I detect a hint of barley malt?? Overall much more enjoyable swill than BMC.

Slightly sweet aroma and no substantial flavor, but for the price it's a great beer on hot summer days.

You know Ive either been hanging out in New York too much or Im taking the rating game to new levels, lower levels. Ive justified this emotional scaring as a necessary history lesson, which will help me appreciate more fully the good beers I drink. This tastes just like Tooheys New. Chemical, bitter rubbish

Yeah its terrible and ricey/corny but its good for drinking a bunch, especially when its warm. I was amazed to find out one of the bars closest to me has this on tap. And for $1.50 a pint and the rest of the bar's beers being way more expensive, gimme PBR.

I tried this standard Yankee mega lager from 2 separate franchised brewers in Ontario Canada. Too bad Pabst franchises the brand without too much QC of it's franchisees. The one bottle I had from Sleeman's was good . Totally representitive of the American lager style; hints of hop and gains (and rice?) highly carbonated with a head that wastes quite quickly. Certainly not overpowering in the taste department but a welcome drink on a hot day. The other time I had this beer it was brewed by Lakeport brewes in Hamilton and the quality sucked. The taste was off. Harsh and slightly spoiled. Maybe the bar had it in the fridge too long. At any rate this second ribbon was enough to make a lesser man blow chunks. My experience with the Sleeman's rendering was pleasant enough that I may buy a 6-pack or so in hot weather if my cashflow is a bit limp at the time.

Smells like corn. Looks OK, light gold with a lasting white skiff. For $7 CDN a 6 it is a decent can. Hint of flavour but no bad aftertaste or off-flavours. An unpretentious macro!

The choice beer of my roommate's surprise birthday party, not my choice The appearance is clear with slight yellow tint. Head is substantial and white but dissipates pretty quickly Aroma is grainy with adjuncts all over the nose. The flavor is malty and corny with no real detectable hops. Not impressive but the adjuncts in this one are not really offensive, it was actually surprising. The fact that its not overwhelmingly corny/ricey *which is what I expected* makes the drinkability slightly above average.
