Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR)

$7.99, 12 pack, Kroger Supermarket, Thornton Road, Atlanta, GA. $4.99 for the 6 pack at Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
PBR – a legend? Well, its reputation clearly goes before it, and helps it get reviewed in a generally far more favorable light than it really should. This is a fairly nasty swill that I don’t think deserves a lot of the praise it gets. It seems to benefit from the idea that if lots of people used to drink it, it must be a classic. I see no more than classic, North American flavored water.
Standard grainy aroma and pale appearance with the usual lack of head and no lacing. Typical in all respects except when it comes to mouthfeel. PBR is one of the thinnest beers I recall ever drinking. This kind of beer is one that I find difficult to consume in any other context outside of lawnmower or “standing in front of grill on 100 degree afternoon”. Good for those activities and not much else.
