Poured from a can into a Pint Glass.
A- Semi-Aggressive pour resulted in a dense, foamy, all white head that didn't stick around too long. Minimal lacing. "Straw" yellow brew with a ton of clarity, I can see right through glass with ease.
S- Unlike most AAL'S out there, the smell of graininess is rather clean and appealing. A little sweet but in a way I totally dig. The faintest bit of hops pokes through. When I picture what an AAL should smell like, I picture this.
T/M- Crisp with plenty of carbonation, perfect on a hot summer day. A little bit of Malts, a little bit of Hops, tie in quite well with the light graininess of this brew. The dry finish caps off what is a hell of an easy drinking and refreshing AAL.
O- In the overcrowded/underwhelming world of American Adjunct Lagers, PBR stands alone, in my opinion, as the ideal, mindless yet refreshing, just plain beer. Take them for what they are. My go to AAL.

BG: Due primarily to the "hipness" of my friend group, I've drank a lot of these throughout college. I've never loved it, but I figured its popularity makes it worth a review. Poured from a can into my favorite Guinness pub glass.
Obtained from: Some shitty gas station near the outskirts of Atlanta, GA.
Appearance: Pours about three fingertip lengths head, pale yellow. Looks more appetizing than most beers in its class, but it isn't gonna win any awards in this area. 3.25
Smell: Smells like sweet corn...possibly malty? A hint of alcohol, which is ridiculous given the beer's low ABV. Again, not terrible, but isn't setting my world ablaze either. 2.75
Taste: Again, lots of sweetness, with a tiny bit of corn flavor near the end. It's thin, but it burns going down the throat. Not the greatest masking, but still decent. 3.25
Mouthfeel: Burns like crazy and has way too much carbonation. Almost sickly sweet. The cheap ingredients show here. 2.5
Overall: This is probably the most "average" beer I've ever had. If a friend gives me a choice between most macrobrews, this would win, but that's really not saying much. 3
Recommend? Depends on the situation. If you aren't hanging out with beer snobs, this is often the best you can do, I'm sorry to say. Also, if you're dead broke and hanging out in a shitty bar, buying this by the pitcher is the way to go. So, in short, don't seek it out, but don't reject it when it comes to you.

Great for the price..That's about it..
Smell: Very little smell of anything particular
Mouthfeel - pretty non existent body, carbonated a bit on the higher side.
For one of the cheapers beers to buy, its not bad, and does its job.
Serving type: can
