OK..Pabst Blue Ribbon is what it is man,Another mass produced American Macro Lager,nothing special or outstanding,nothing that hits you upside the head and makes you go WOW! man is this a great Beer!..however on the flip side,there also is nothing that makes you go YUCK! god is this stuff nasty!..hehe,and seeing how "PBR" is Generaly priced much lower then a lot of other American Macro Lagers,and IMHO is as good or better then most of them,it has it's place in my beer fridge~if you are throwning a backyard BBQ,or outdoor party with more then just a few close friends stopping by,PBR is a great choice,chill down a few cases of Pabst,and everyone will have plenty of Ice cold beer,gr8 with hot dogs and burgers,grilled chicken,and other BBQ grub,you can spring for all the beer without breaking your wallet,and on a Hot summer day,an Ice cold PBR taste purty damn good!;)
I consider Pabst Blue Ribbon to be pretty much just like Most American Macro Lagers as far as Taste ,smell,appearance & such,not much flavor to speak of,but that is true of almost all American Macro beers,Grainy & grassy with little to no Hop flavor is pretty much the norm,but Pabst Blue Ribbon is a VERY Refreshing brew to be sure,and is a gr8 choice when you are tapped out,or looking for a Beer you can stock your fridge full of for friends and company,or just want a Cold beer on a hot day~
anyway,as far as looking to mass produced American Macro Lagers for Originality,Tons of Flavor,Choice Hops & very well crafted brewing in general,you would pretty much be wasting your time,because you are just not going to find it,thats what Micro Breweries and Cratf Beer is for,but I think American Mass produced Macro Beers have their place too,they may not make any beers you can sit down with and enjoy while pondering just how the brewer created such a masterpiece of brewing Art,but they taste pretty damn good when all you are looking for is an Ice cold one to quench your thirst, Cheers and Peace2all:)

My 1000th review! I tried getting Westvleteran 12, but since that failed, I decided to go Old School. Somehow, I had never had this.
Serving glass: Poured from can into Frankfurter.
Appearance: Clear straw color with good sized, bubbly head.
Smell: Straw, pepper and dried out apple. Dry and spicy overall, without much noticeable adjunct aroma. Much better than expected.
Taste: At first, it tastes pretty damn good, with straw, hay, pepper and spicy hops. Almost could be a German Pilsner, but then a lingering corn aftertaste makes it clear that this is the bastard child of the Pilsner - the Adjunct Lager.
Feel: Crisp and effervescent. Light bodied. Would be dry if not for the aftertaste.
Overall: Good for an Adjunct Lager, especially at the price. It is too bad that the corn aftertaste messes up what is otherwise a surprisingly good beer.

Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) 16 oz can $1.29(OH)
16 oz can poured into a stemless white wine glass. Drink before date printed on the bottom.
Pours a straw yellow color. A two finger white head that goes away with a quickness. Minimal to no lacing is left on the glass. An endless stream of bubbles shoot towards the surface. Just by looking this brew is way over carbonated.
The aroma is very light. light malts, and an adjunct smell of corn.
The taste is light and crisp, Kind of an apple taste. followed by a corny taste. finishes smooth with a dry grape like taste. Hardly any taste at all, so it is smooth.
mouth feel is very light. over carbonated. Any taste is gone seconds after i swallowed.
Overall this is Your typical adjunct lager. I normally don't review brews like this but after reading in some forums that PBR was a preferred cheap beer i thought i would try it. Waste of time. Its your typical corny american adjunct lager.
