Served in cans in dive bars across the nation. If you're paying more than $2 for this you better have naked or nearly naked (depending on the local laws regarding such places) flesh in front of you.
I've never started off a night with PBR so I can't comment on the appearance other than to note that the can exerts no class whatsoever. If it becomes a conversation-starter, you can at least thank your lucky stars you're not talking about the weather.
Over the years, the smell has become less and less like stale cigarette smoke as more and more states enact anti-smoking laws. By the time you're on your 10th or 20th the smell doesn't even make you nauseous.
It tastes like "beer". Like a picture in a dictionary. A cheap dictionary though.
Enough carbonation to not taste watered down and usually surprisingly drinkable, though I'd never pass up something from even the lowest rungs of microbreweries for this.

Surprisingly full of character, and not like other American lagers. Much better - and plenty of history to boot ! I love the retro renewal - goes great with a sandwich, hot dog, at the ball park, picnic, Sunday afternoon on the driveway, whatever. Great stuff!
