I saw that this did a lot better on here than I would have anticipated so I decided to experiment. At $6.79 a 12 pack how could you go wrong?
Good news is it's not as bad as I thought. Bad news is, it's still pretty bad.
A - nothing special - looks like yellow cheap beer from my college days
S - Honestly, nothing really positive to say here with the smell.
T - Taste is very malty but not terrible.
M - Honestly, this is where the beer does well. The mouthfeel has a carbonation that pops
D - I have to say that I could see myself drinking this beer during the summer in a session but I'm going to put the rest of this 12 pack on hold for now...

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.
