Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.


Established in Milwaukee in 1844, this is the original Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Nature’s choicest products provide its prized flavor. Only the finest of hops and grains are used. Selected as America’s Best in 1893.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2017 This beer tastes like the worst corn whiskey you?ve ever had if it were extremely watered down. Very few pleasant flavors. The greatest redeeming quality is that it leaves behind some decent lacing. Would have rated it lower in flavor but I have tasted worse. I really don?t get the hipster attraction.

Pabst, not the famous German filmmaker of Louise Brooks' breakout Pandora's Box, but the beer that has always been there for me in one way shape or form. It may not be the best (it definitely is not) but it certainly isn't the worst, and it is usually cheap as hell. It has a slight sweat sock and corn smell with a light pisswasser look. The taste is watery and smooth like bubble water filtered through unpopped popcorn kernels. You can chug these and not feel ill, which is all I ask in a pale lager. Good for crummy Mondays and cuddles and planning for the Halloween season ahead wit yo Halloween baby boo!

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso identifica l'orzo. L'intensità olfattiva è flebile e la continuità olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma resiste poco. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La carbonazione è nella norma. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La frizzantezza si manifesta sotto forma di bollicine fini. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è medio. Il dolce è medio e l'amaro è medio: non si surclassano. L'intensità gustativa è normale e la costanza gustativa è corta. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L'aroma in bocca riporta sentori di cereali.

355ml can @ 4.6%. Clear golden yellow with a smooth white head, good retention. Aroma: grainy, malty, floral grassy hop. Taste: grainy malt, grassy, slight fruitiness, light sweet syrup, light bitterness. Light body, average carbonation, a bit thin. Ok... I mean I've had worse macros from the US.

Bottle 355ml, ABV 4.6%. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma is malts, some candies, light fruits, hay, cereals. Taste is grainy, malts, morning cereal meal, some fruits, light sweetness, fresh. Nice beer!

Pale golden, malty, corny grainy aroma, light-bodied, sweety grainy taste, no bitterness.

Bottle from Gristedes on 8th Avenue, New York. Pours pale gold with minimal white head. Aroma of light malt, touch of citrus and grass. Medium plus sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, weak and watery texture, soft carbonation. Not good.

Clean. Refreshing. Thankfully not some vile, disgusting, filthy hipster "beer".

SVD (2053) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2017
Can at home, brought to me by a friend. Pale golden beer, small-medium head. Aroma is grain, malt. Taste is the same, sweet and bitter. Honestly one of the better USA lagers....

More grain flavor than I expected, maybe a little grass and straw, but there is a wallop of corn-like flavor and in the finish some hop with some fairly prominent off flavors.

I do like and drink PBR but obviously it is a very cheap beer to drink, poor college kid shit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
