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.

Ok. This is not a top shelf beer. This stuff is cheap, corn-heavy adjunct lager. That being said, it's dang tasty when it's hot out, has a little more ABV than your run of the mill 3.2, and I love that when I bust one out, very few people swarm around to get their hands on one, making it an even better value! Pale yellow in color, It's got enough malty body to separate it from the miller/coors/bud barley pop, while still being easy to drink in quantity. No real discernible hoppiness, especially compared to my standard IPA/DIPA fare. Refreshing, but not a light beer. Taken for what it is, I believe it to be a great beer, when limited to class-comparison. I'm drinking one right now, as it's 85, sunny, and I'm grilling. Boom.
