12 oz. can poured into pilsener
(July 10, 2017 best-by date)

L: yellow, twinge of gold, clear, pushes up 1 1/4-inch head of white foam, very little sticking or lacing, loads of activity in glass push up constant collar of white foam and piece of skin

S: house paint, peach, grain ... toasted grain

T: grain, slight medicinal note, slight hop bitterness with a little earthy hop flavor

F: lightweight, almost watery, filled out from the carbonation

O: a nice throwback to my youth but not a stalwart of the style; still, there's no flaws and for the price, it's a crushing candidate

12 FL. OZ. can
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.
