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.

Ok. This is not a top shelf beer. This stuff is cheap, corn-heavy adjunct lager. That being said, it's dang tasty when it's hot out, has a little more ABV than your run of the mill 3.2, and I love that when I bust one out, very few people swarm around to get their hands on one, making it an even better value! Pale yellow in color, It's got enough malty body to separate it from the miller/coors/bud barley pop, while still being easy to drink in quantity. No real discernible hoppiness, especially compared to my standard IPA/DIPA fare. Refreshing, but not a light beer. Taken for what it is, I believe it to be a great beer, when limited to class-comparison. I'm drinking one right now, as it's 85, sunny, and I'm grilling. Boom.
