Definitely the best AAL.
Runs rings around Budweiser yet remains cheaper.
It's the only AAL that has a crisp finish, no funky-off flavors.
Best drunken from the can or bottle.
If lack of money forces you to the adjunct section of the beer fridge, always go with PBR.
These kinds of beers need their own scaling system, reviewed in the context of what they are (cheaper alternatives to craft) My rating reflects my opinion of it within it's market. Also would be pretty cool to see this beer hitting the "okay" mark on BeerAdvocate (it deserves it)

With all the sentimental reviews, plus it's popularity amongst the trendy, I decided to buy a can. Poured it into a glass. It pours a nice clear straw color with a foamy head and has good lacing. It tastes better than most AALs. But. It's a tad on the light side for me. If it had a richer flavor, I would have bolstered my rating.

Ole PBR don't get much love. Overall one of the best of the old time Americans. Most people don't give it its due simply because of the stigma that has been placed upon this legend. Get it cold and its hard to beat Ain't no namby pamby beer for sure
