Pretty decent. Very mild, almost like a light beer. Tasty, but watery. Nice for a change, but doubt it is anyone's all-time favorite.

This is better in bottles. I think the movie Blue Velvet is keeping this beer alive. It was better in the '70s, but then again so was Schmidt's, Schlitz, Olympia, Schaefer...the list goes on. If I can find it in bottles, I buy it. Otherwise, avoid. The beer develops a metallic taste in cans, more than other beers.

I heard Pabst was making a bit of a comeback so I bought a six pack of longnecks and chilled them. I must say that Pabst is once again an excellent example of the American standard style. It's miles better than Budweiser or Miller and it has a nice balanced flavor. I'd definitely keep some around as a summertime lawnmowing beer. PBR is better now than it has tasted in years. I always thought the old Milwaukee-brewed PBR was much better than the version we used to get out of the Pearl plant in San Antonio but today's PBR is a nice, reasonably priced beer.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 I rate this beer higher based on value. Better than most swill from BMC, it is overly carbonated and warm it is just horrid. But, hey, its cheaper than budmillercoors and I DO get a tad of malt on the finish. There are not many other flavors there and the adjunct taste is reasonably attenuated.

Beer is light in the yeast, malt, and hops. This actually tastes like water. But oh well..

I was unimpressed by this beer. It's certainly more satisfying than Budweiser and the like, but save your money for some Sam Adams. You'll thank yourself for it.

Get ya drunk... it's got history.. AND it's cheap. Hell, perfect beer to feed drunken sluts at a party!

Ahh yes, Pabst Blue Ribbon. A beer for all occassions. Assuming of course that by all occassions I'm only refering to playing beer pong.

F*** this S***! Heineken Lager! Except that is little better. PBR is the typical Am. St. light gold--perhaps a little darker, with a litter nicer head than usual. I've always wondered what people meant by the cooked vegetable smell; I guess like being "5'd" you just will know it when it happens. Man, I just want to put some salt and pepper on this and eat it with some pot roast. It's a bit sour and lacks both hop and malt flavors, although it does have this interesting flavor that is like the smell when the motor is burning on your vacuum cleaner. Swillable, but there are better cheap beers.
