So, I’m about to sample my first Pabst... Wait a minute, that smell is vaguely familiar, so is the taste... This isn’t my first one, but it is the first I’ve had since i was about 14. Taste is somewhat grassy and corny, as you’d expect out o an ultra-cheap beer- but it’s really not that bad. I could see myself sitting around and drinking this at a BBQ where I wasn’t in charge of the beer. SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUL 1, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 PBR, what can I say? Its horrible compared to a real beer brewed with some love. But as at least one person already wrote, its the best of the ultra-cheap beers. Remarkably better out of a bottle than a can. Maybe because it’s just wrong to have a beer out of a can. Except if it’s Pabst. xip (2) - USA - JUN 24, 2004 does not count
Sure, it’s funky. It tastes and smells like Budweiser that has been chilled, left out in the sun, and chilled again. Still, it’s my favorite of the ultra-cheap beers. shadey (2166) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2004
After reading the forum post about this brew I realized I hadn’t rated it yet. I am going to agree with Oakes on this and say that the best part of PBR is reading the posts/rating it inspires. There are far too many grandpas that are kept alive by this stuff and far too many REAL men that drink it.... and yes F Heinekin. Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2004
my only advice for this brew is drink it as cold as you can.
Pabst ain’t that bad for what it is! A Cheap, workin’ man’s beer! I’d take one over a Mic ultra anyday! lol, It was good for grandpa, and I’ll drink it too on occasion, Especially if I’m low on cash!

Growing up in the seventies in Wisconsin I thought this was the only beer there was. Only until I was older did I discover how awful this stuff is. No color, head has big bubbles, makes me want to puke when I smell it. Nostalgia gives this an overall 2, but this clearly is a 0 wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Very light color. White, fizzy head. It is amazing how they get that canned taste even in draught. Very light on malt but fairly smooth. I used to drink a lot of PBR when I was in college--oh the nostalgia.... robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Had in Bar in Superior. I think they should keep it there....Agony on my part. Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2004

Straw in color with a medium white head. aroma of mellow hops, a touch of malt and corn.Flavor of sweet corn and malt, high carbonation fills the mouth. Dry finish.
