Considering its place in the world of beer, PBR ain't that bad. It is my favorite of the cheap macros. Much rather drink this than Busch, High Life, or god-forbid Milwaukee's Best. Its a little sweeter than the others which helps its drinkability for me. Helps overcome some of the inherent nastiness of this style of beer. Prefer to get it in the bottles, which I cannot do here in Georgia but Tennessee is just a few miles away. If you need beer on the cheap on a hot summer day, you can do a lot worse than PBR.

Oregon

3.51/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz : pint glass

Clear, golden yellow with a thick, creamy white head with decent retention.

Fairly typical adjunct lager profile. Balanced flavors of grainy, lightly sweet malt and the faintest grassy-ish hop profile.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

Nothing special, but for an American Adjunct Lager it certainly isn't a bad beer.
