Quite simply this is the best I've been able to get for the price. PBR is far from being a great beer, but I love it anyway. When the occasion for a cheap American lager comes about, the only beer I'm interested in is PBR. No the light straw color, and the quickly dissipating head will not impress you, but once you've had a taste you have to admit that it is much better than most of the other options. You can actually taste a bit of hops! Some say there might be rice in there too, but I haven't tasted it like I have in others, i.e. Bud.
I just graduated from college, where there was an occasional need for a cheap session beer. Now that I'm out in the real world with no money, I will still stay loyal to good old PBR when I can't get my hands on a quality craft 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.
