Oh, what to be said about PBR. I'm of the age where it's a rather popular drink, it seems to be the philly hipster beer of choice, in my short life on living in the city I've watched in double in price and have remained baffled.
Now though, I think I understand. PBR doesn't taste awful, atleast as long as I'm not paying 6 dollars for 22oz of it at a bar. It's also much better then you're Natural Ice and Busch.
The Main flavour I've noticed in PBR is water, thats always the first thing that hits my pallet, water, then some slight grain flavor that mixes with the alchohal.
The appeal to PBR is that it isn't the University Beer bong beer, so cheers to you PBR for being the beer of an Overpaying Counter Culture.

3.34/5 rDev +12.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Presentation: 12 oz can, with the classic blurb about PBR being #1 close to the end of Reconstruction and using nature's choicest products.
Appearance: Semblance of a head and some lacing (!) when poured into a glass; pale golden-yellow hue.
Smell: Sweet corn and malts; slight touch of booze.
Taste and Mouthfeel: Crisp and carbonated; a bit grassy and slightly bitter; pinch of sweetness in the middle and a dry and satisfying finish.
Notes: My go-to "cheap" beer. It gets the job done and can stand on its own, even if it is generally revered for being better than the other adjunct lagers out there. Recommended.

3.38/5 rDev +14.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Can: a standard-looking white macro can. Pretty much what you expect from a major macro.
Appearance: pours a standard adjunct lager - clear yellow-amber with a fair ol' whack of head that fizzles away to a white half-finger. Decent.
Aroma: smells of the usual grain and light hop aromas, but with a small amount of fruits.
Taste: pretty much follows the nose - standard grains and hops with a small amount of fruit behind. A refreshing and decent lager.
Aftertaste: drops away fairly quickly as is standard for the adjunct lager style. Quite drinkable.
Mouth feel: plenty of carbonation as expected - a decently refreshing beer for a hot day.
Overall: I'm not entirely sure why this beer scored 'poor' - it's a decent, refreshing lager as good as any other standard macro, for a much lower price than many others. It isn't going to blow your socks off if you're after something special, but as an every day lager, it's pretty much unbeatable.

3.29/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
16oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Crystal clear yellow and a surprising two-finger head
S: Light malt, rice/corn. Simple but clean
T: Light malt, here a touch of butterscotch comes into play rather than the adjunct grains
M: Light-bodied but crisp & refreshing
O: Sure this may lack the complexity of the smaller production brews we're more familiar with but I don't understand its 'poor' overall rating. It's refreshing and not a flaw to be found, and I haven't had any BMC in forever but it tastes better than I recall those being
