Feeling rather nostalgic, I ordered a longneck at the local watering hole. Having not had a PBR in about 30 years, I was surprised at the familiarity of the first sip...nothing special here, just a very average brew you can pound-down on the cheap. It definitely helps to have it ice cold, and be really thirsty.

A: Pale golden colr with thin white head that leaves little lace.
S: Grain, corn, malt, musty.
T: Tastes like its aromas, but weaker.
M: Thin, watery like most American adjunct lagers. Moderately carbonated.
O: Not bad, but far from great. On a hot summer day, this would do a good job of cooling you off. However, as a beer, it is largely simple and uninteresting.
