9-6-14. Can. Pilsner glass.
A: Pours a pale gold with 3 fingers white rocky head. Fades to 1/4" grayish white foam. Decent lacing.
S: Grainy. Surprisingly clean. Little hop presence to speak of.
T: Almost nothing. Mild, fizzy arrival; slight sweetness across mid-palate. Clean, dry, slightly bitter finish. Mild, funky adjunct taste after it warms up.
M: Light-to-mid bodied. Not overwhelming carbonation (surprisingly).
O: This is a perfect American Adjunct Lager. It surprised me to remember how little flavor these have. But it serves its purpose very well; affordable, refreshing, pairs outstandingly with food. The category is dull, but this beer shines.

You can never go wrong with a Pabst Blue Ribbon. Cheap, tasty, and drinkable. Only problem with it are those damn hipsters ruining it for us.
