Notes/Commercial Description:
- 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.

This is one of the better adjunct lagers I've had. It's a little too sweet, probably because the adjunct ingredient happens to be corn syrup. Not as carbonated as BMC beers and looks a tad better. Still not great smelling though. Not as much of a corn, skunk, metal flavor like you'd expect.

Not a bad beer if it's found cheap.

We did a blind taste test with this beer against five other light american lagers to objectively determine which one is best. The beers were Coors Light, Bud Light, Miller Light, Natural Light, and Pabst Blue Ribbon. You can check it out here:
