Pabst Blue Ribbon (can) - 1.7

Pabst Blue Ribbon
American-Style Lager
Pabst Brewing Company
Milwaukee, WI
Alcohol Content: 5%

This is the first time I've poured a PBR from a can into a glass, and I hope it's the last. It looks like ginger ale and smells like... well, it smells like bad beer. Nonetheless, PBR has a place in my heart for being cheap, refreshing, and readily available. Ah, memories of youth.

First of all, this is a working man's beer--no pouring--it stays in the can it came in. And the can is quite nice--a 3 for appearance from me. As far as taste, palate, and flavor, it's pretty much what you'd expect. It tastes like beer--classic American beer. Mmmm... cheap beer. Not great, but a bargain! Unfortunately it gives me a raging headache if I drink even one. Oh well...

Since Jon and I both poured ours into glasses, the slight variations in color and hue between the two were most apparent--clearly the QC process at this place leaves something to be desired... As for the taste, again, it's better than King Cobra, but that's not saying much.
