2.88/5  rDev -2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

PBR is a relatively decent beer for the price.

Mouth - a bit thin, no head. refreshing

taste - very light. Light hint of hops and other earthy flavors but very much an undertone

look - very light yellow, pale.

Nose - the smell to me is always a bit off. I can't explain it more than that. A little hint of hops but almost a hint of skunk or some other scent I can't identify

Overall I actually like PBR and it is my go to beer for a night of heavy drinking with some buddies but it also works as a very light summer beer as it is actually refreshing being low in ABU (bittering units) and ABV (alcohol content).

Serving type: can
