It is what it is. I would never expect this beer to impress anyone and I won't talk up something that isn't there, but it has been my go to for years when faced with nothing but a cooler full of macros at a backyard BBQ.

This beer is almost good. And for the price, it's very drinkable. In large quantities.

a beer of my youth. had some last summer for the first time in over 20 years. it has a very light refreshing flavor, quite good with a gooey cheeseburger or pizza. I like it best cold. it is nothing special, just a good basic beer.

On draft from a local bar. Poured into a mug. The color is straw yellow with a nice off white head of foam. The aroma was really faint. The taste was nothing special but did have just a hint of hops in the background. It was not overly watery. The feel was smooth and crisp. Very refreshing. Over all a really good choice for cheap beer that won't leave a dent in your wallet or a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach after a few. I would highly recommend PBR.
