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.

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.
