Pabst Blue Ribbon is a beer you should drink if you need a lot of beer. Better than most American cheap beer(Bud/Miller), but nothing to get excited over. Blah taste, golden pale appearance, goes down fast for chugging, but still better than most 50 cent a pop beers. Not bad on tap either.

Non-offensive brew. Good for $6 a 12 pack. Acceptable trash beer. Better than Bud Light et al in my mind, especially for the price.

It was a good one time beer but, I don't plan on having it again. I wouldn't tell you to try it unless you are just trying to add more beers to your total.

Been drinking this beer for over 20 years. It has a nice flavor, something you can drink all afternoon while watching football. It does not have a terrible aftertaste like allot of the microbrew lagers. It does have the feel of a American lager, and it brings back allot of memories from all the small bars I visited in NE.

Drinkable, but just barely...

This was the keg at a friend's party. Um... well... not much to say, other than I guess it beats Bud Light. Maybe. It's easy to chug, but that's all it has going for it.

Golden, with a medium-sized white head that is almost entirely diminishing. However, the lacing IS rather nice, so extra points for that. Sour grain aroma. Sour flavor initially, finish is slightly sweet. Extremely watery palate. Nothing sets this apart from other American standards. I'd like to know what the "blue ribbon" was won for...

this I bought in the long neck 12 oz bottles In appearance this is not bad at all average on the whole, but looks much better than most macros in a glass, the head is quite impressive and lingers to a fine lace down the whole glass. Smell is slightly odd..hard to place a alittle sour some wheat ? maybe..but not totally unpleasant. Taste is pretty average for its style but at the price thats good there actually is a slight after taste with this beer..unlike many American macros Feels grat and is very drinkable as a result..all in all a good American lager..no frills but beware in my opinion its far better this way ( in the bottle) than in the can

This beer sucks in every way. Better yet, this whole company is pathetic. They are in the business of buying up a lot of good, old, unique beers and turning them into different versions of their blue ribbon crap. I HATE THESE CREEPS.

I would drink this over some of the other mass produced beers that the kids are chugging these days. It only cost me 2.99 for a sixer, so it didn't waste my money in the whole scope of things.
