Served in an old school Busch Beer thumbprint goblet

This beer pours a brilliant yellow color. It is topped with less than an inch of white head that actually leaves a little lacing.

I get some grain aroma and enough hop presence so it doesn't come across as sweet smelling.

This Pabst offering has more flavor than a lot of their Rust Belt portfolio. It has a slight sweetness in the beginning, but there are enough hops to balance the flavor. It is crisp and clean.

Thin to moderate mouthfeel

I am a fan of old Rust Belt breweries and malt liquor. This was not bad at all for what it is.

Long distance calling, Texas on the phone.

Like a coworker who doesn't contribute much but is always dependably on time. Don't recall ever having this outside of Texas and only rarely when there. Still, left a good impression of a mild beer without the negatives of cheap AALs. No harshness, pleasing flavor, no bitey lingering aftertaste, just pleasant. Wish I could say the same about all my Texas acquaintances but hey, let's be nice.

Sure, I'd buy it again and take it to a cookout.
