Poured from can into imperial pint.
A: Pale gold, crystal clear. Thick white head, thin lacing.
S: Faint grainy and slightly grassy aroma. Only faint traces of sweetness, if any. A little earthy.
T: Grainy and grassy, with a touch of hops at the end that is absent in other AALs. You can taste the alcohol at times on the back end.
M: Light bodied with more malt backbone than I expected. Carbonation is refreshing without going too far. A bit of a dryness at the end that lingers a bit too long, but not bad overall.
D: Much better poured into a glass than straight from the can IMO, this is a big step forward from the BMCs. I picked up a case of PBR cans on sale as a budget beer fridge stocker, and for a refreshing 'light' beer and change of pace. PBR fits that bill perfectly.

I rated this all 5's across the board because of the style. This beer has nothing that a Beer Advocate should search for or ponder. This is the ultimate, inoffensive, find-anywhere brew that you end your night with or drink at parties. It's cheaper and tastes better than the less cost-efficient alternatives (Budweiser, Miller, or Coors). It's hard to defend macro-lager once you've tasted the grass from the greener side, but this is my end-all cheap beer. All hail the Blue Ribbon (I always joke when I drink this beer, "Selected as America's Best in 1893...and never again"). My ancestors knew what they were talkin' about.

PBR is the staple of my drinking life. I have always enjoyed the smooth flavor and found it goes great no matter what I am doing. I have had some deep conversations over this beer but I've also found great comfort in watching TV and sipping one.
A-It is about what you would expect in a glass. However, to be fair, I will review the bottle. It is like an American flag to me. Every single time I see one I think Amuuurica!
S-The smell is a little nonexistent. It is made up for in flavor.
T-The taste is delicious and very crisp.
M-It has a nice refreshing feel in the mouth.
O-I love this beer and would recommend it for anyone!
Cheap and delicious!
