3.68/5  rDev +25.2%
look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

hello: ah, pbr! it's just one of those things. this is the beer you conspire with when you do bad things on a friday night. this is the beer you lose track of how many you've had because the 16oz. cans are only two bucks. this beer is as much a drinking buddy as your actual drinking buddies are. its not trying for world class, its trying for honesty. this beer is no ferrari, but it is a totally sweet jeep.

appearance: nothing special, just golden ameri-beer. but it's got great cans, so i gave it a 5.0 anyway.

smell: hay? kinda skunk? meh, im not here to sniff it, im here to drink it.

taste: the first impression is just like the smell, kind of hay-ish. the middle of the taste has the tiniest kick of hops to midtounge. and the finale dries right off the back of your mouth. not a loud talker, just inofensive beery refreshment.

mouthfeel: could drink it forever. smooth as a lake in the morning. not a trace of stickiness.

Serving type: can

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.
