I like this a little better than Schlitz, because it's easier to find and its about $2.50 cheaper, and taste a little better.
Color-Nice golden yellow
Smell-VERY clean sweet beer smell
Taste- nice balance of Bitter to sweet, very smooth
Overall- My 12 pack of bottles was $7.49 at Kroger, it was NOT past the date on the bottle, (Something that is COMMON for pabst products in my area). I really Enjoyed this American Classic.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a mug. Pours the color of straw with a thick white head. Plenty of bubbles stream up from the bottom of the glass. Aromas of lightly toasted barley malt, sweet corn, and hops greet the nose. It tastes much like it smells. It's a well-balanced flavor of lightly toasted barley malt, corn, and hops. It's crisp and clean. The carbonation is abundant, but not supercharged. The mouthfeel is light. It's very easy to gulp this down. It's a solid adjunct lager and one of my old go to session beers. PBR me, ASAP.

A: Pours a clear gold with a thin, fizzy white head that quickly settles into a ring of white lace. Compared to many American adjunct lagers, the head retention is pretty good.
S: Typical of the style, PBR is bland and inoffensive. Subtle aromas of grain husks, grass, lemon, and minerals are just barely detectable on the nose.
T: Compared to many other macro lagers, this is pretty tasty. Notes of lemon, grass, hay, straw, chalk, minerals, and grain husks wash across the palate. The finish is fleeting with a combination of grain and lemon notes.
M: Light-bodied, but somewhat heavier and fuller than many adjunct-laden lagers. Carbonation is very heavy, resulting in a bloating, but more filling and substantial beverage.
O: For the style, PBR is pretty hard to beat. It may not be exciting or interesting, and it certainly is nowhere near complex, but this is a solid, simple beer than one can return to time and time again. It's definitely better and more satisfying than the likes of Bud, Miller, and Coors.
