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.

What can I say? If I am drinking PBR, I am not expecting much. If I want something cheap and weak though, I would rather go with PBR than Miller Lite. I had some PBR in my beer fridge forever and I tasted more to see if it was skunky and worth keeping. It wasn't bad.

24oz can. Drank from can just as a beer like this should be consumed. Decided to try it out to see what the hipsters find so appealing about it. Labeling is traditional american lager styling. Smell was very faint; what I did pick up was just like what any other adjunct lager smells like. Typical beer flavored water taste. Not as much corn in the flavor as some of the other cheap lagers out there. Lots of carbonation. overall refreshing if you drink it as cold as possible. Hardly any flavor. A good choice if you are looking for something cheap, fizzy, low abv, and don't want strong flavor.
