look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Had on-tap at lazy moon near UCF, at $0.25 a pint with a slice of pizza it's hard to beat, poured into a pint glass.

A-Liquid gold with a decent 1" stark white head that dissipated rather quickly, and... o my... is that lacing on my glass. Good for you PBR.

S-Corn, and grain, with a slight sweet smell, exactly what one would expect from an AAL.

T-Not bad at all, the corn certainly takes over along with the malt but there's a certain sweetness to it that makes this a decent beer.

M-Crisp, clean, a little watery with great carbonation.

D-This is pretty damn drinkable and went fantastic with my pizza, I'd say this is the best AAL I've ever had, and you can't beat the price, my pop would be proud.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
