another cheepie, nothing special, aroma and taste were just like the other american standard beers I would rather have a natty ice opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - FEB 10, 2004
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. :-) AcctError10541 (9) - Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2004 does not count
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! randomdude (8) - Yorktown Heights, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2004 does not count
PBR...college...somehow now trendy in the cities. This beer became popular because it didn't advertise. The question is, does is deserve this posistion? Think cheap American rice beer. It did win a blue ribbon, many, many, many years ago. For schwill beer it doesn't really get much better than this. Light, cheap and drinkable. Yurch27 (1) - USA - FEB 8, 2004 does not count
Possibly my favorite beer, great tasting, cans are great, 30 packs are amazing. If your looking for a good beer for an extremely affordable price, can't go wrong with the this one, the blue ribbon isn't for nothing folks.Great brew.

Well, today is Wednesday so it must be Hong Kong. And what do I find in the 7-11 across the road from my hotel? Fully imported from the US it trumpets. So this is the real deal PBR. God its pale, thin headed and corny on the nose. I like the description on the can where it says that it was America’s best in 1893. I am pleased that we have moved on from those non-heady days 111 years ago. I would hate to see what gets the red and gold ribbons. JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Dark straw color with a Dininished white fluffy head. Metallic and mild malt aroma. Had this on tap a few months ago and the aroma actually had some hops, but I wasn't rating that night so this will have to stick. More metal in the flavor. Suggests that the tap version is much better as american standards go. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2004

From the first time you stick your nose in the glass, you know you're going to be disappointed. There is noting inviting about the aroma. The aftertaste seems stronger than the taste, but not as pleasant. My throat feels full of phlegm afterwards. The only thing to like about this beer is nostalgia, and what did I know back then?

Tastes cheap. Drink this stuff ice-cold if you want to finish it. They charge more for it than they should. It will hammer you and give you a nasty hangover too! Be careful. but hey, knock one back in memory of Dad and Granpa. Aside from that Fuggetabouttit!
