Best served in an Old Bay-rimmed glass.

Poured from the can into a Libbey style pilsner glass. Can good till Oct 2014.

A classic straw and bright brass yellow body, crystal clear with not too much pale quality. Head is bleach white and foamy. Manages to stick around for three fingers and leave a fairly soapy collar when settling to a simple thin puck. Not bad looking.

Nose is classic sweet corn adjunct, but not too horrific or faulty. Kind of thin, slightly papery a little, more like a light rice perhaps also. Not getting any chemical faults or off qualities either. Comes out fairly middle of the road on the aroma nothing much to get excited about.

Palate sort of hints at the light pappery quality, but give a bit of malt depth, but very fleeting. Moderate carbonation surprisingly, but some of that classic sweetness comes through. Finishes very thin but inoffensively without the classic seltzery big beer lager feel.

Overall if I want to drink a beer where I don't want to think or be disappointed, or horrified, this is pretty much it in a nutshell.

I've had a lot of adjunct lagers and pilsners and for its style Natty Boh isn't terrible. There's no complexity, but that's not what Pabst is aiming for. Good for baseball.

good old boh! so many great memories were made with this beer which may be the reason for my higher rating. I still say the best way to enjoy natty boh is poured into a plastic cup at an o's game on a mid summer night...although it will cost you $8. well worth it in my opinion!
