This beer actually tastes like BEER. Not some lousy, fruity elixir. I thoroughly enjoyed every sip of this beer and I have no doubt that, based on taste and price, that this beer will be one of my regular beer brands for decades to come. It had a very nice flavor, but it was in no way overpowering like some beers. I highly recommend this beer to anyone who likes the taste of beer and likes to save money.

In my opinion this is one of the better american adjunct lagers out on the market. it is crisp, clean tasting and refreshing. I didnt bother to pour in a glass and inspect color and to release its smells because it smells like a american adjunct lager without the burnt vegetable smell like you would get with a miller high life. I believe that pabst has a one of a kind unique flavor and for what it is. Its worth trying, even though it is $5.99 a 4 pack of 16 ounces.
