- Pabst Blue Ribbon is brewed in the finest traditions of an American Premium Lager dating back to 1844. Brewed with a combination of 2 & 6-row malted barley, select cereal grains and American and European hops, Pabst Blue Ribbon is fermented with a proprietary lager yeast. Our unique fermentation and maturation process results in a smooth, full bodied beer with a clean, crisp finish with a fine noble hop aroma.

Served in a pilsner glass

A - I would say it has a clear, golden body. Three inches of fluffy white head leaves some lacing as it settles to an eighth inch of skim.

S - I get some fragrant soap and some steeped grain.

T - I get some of that wonderful adjunct grain. It has a crisp, clean finish.

M - Thin with plenty of biting carbonation.

O - This adjunct is sweeter than most. Tastes about like all the rest. I am not sure why the hipsters and college kids like it other than the cheap price.
