Had a PBR recently at a party after not drinking this for years and years and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Has a decent head without a lot of retention or lacing. Clear and yellow colored. The nose was probably the worst aspect of this beer; there was just something unpleasant about it that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Grassy, corn aroma, vaguely bitter, slightly skunky and rotten.
The taste was actually pretty good, much better than the standard AAL, BMC flavor by a good margin. Lightly sweet, a touch of bitter grassy hops, adjuncts aren’t too overpowering. Nothing too big or interesting but easy to drink and fairly pleasant to boot. Clean and crisp. Mouthfeel was light with a dry finish.
I’m not gonna grab a PBR if any sort of decent craft is offered instead but I’d definitely drink this one before a bud, coors, or miller to be sure. Hey, you could do worse!
