2.78/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
12 oz. bottle, with best by date of August 26, 2013 printed on the side. I just couldn't resist the allure of seeing Pabst Blue Ribbon in bottles, $8.50 for a twelve pack.
Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.
A - Pours two fingers of milky eggshell white fizz for a head, on top of a clear golden yellow colored body. Head thins to about a half finger and lingers for a few minutes of retention. Your typical American adjunct lager appearance.
S - Cooked grains and dusty malts; your usual boring adjunct beer smell. A bit of carbonation present, along with a hint of lemon / citrus twang, which isn't bad.
T - Taste follows the nose: cooked grains, corn kernels, dusty cheap barley, some artificial sweetness, and a hint of citrus lemongrass, which is obviously the most pleasing thing about this beer, considering most other adjuncts are too pitiful for even that much. Not bad for what it is.
M - Feel is grainy and dry. Light-bodied with ideal carbonation.
Overall, definitely one of the better cheap larger American adjuncts out there. Not world-class or wonderful by any means, but it is what it is, and it is well worth it considering how cheap it is. Ideal for a party or cookout or whatever, and will assuredly go well with BBQ on a hot summer day.

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.

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
