look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
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.

Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR) 16 oz can $1.29(OH)
16 oz can poured into a stemless white wine glass. Drink before date printed on the bottom.
Pours a straw yellow color. A two finger white head that goes away with a quickness. Minimal to no lacing is left on the glass. An endless stream of bubbles shoot towards the surface. Just by looking this brew is way over carbonated.
The aroma is very light. light malts, and an adjunct smell of corn.
The taste is light and crisp, Kind of an apple taste. followed by a corny taste. finishes smooth with a dry grape like taste. Hardly any taste at all, so it is smooth.
mouth feel is very light. over carbonated. Any taste is gone seconds after i swallowed.
Overall this is Your typical adjunct lager. I normally don't review brews like this but after reading in some forums that PBR was a preferred cheap beer i thought i would try it. Waste of time. Its your typical corny american adjunct lager.
