Pabst Blue Ribbon

Beer review: Pabst Blue Ribbon

Style & glass: Pale lager; dimpled mug

12 fl oz x 5% ABV = 60 / 60 = 1 beers * 150 C = 150 calories (est.)

Available at: everywhere, for Pete’s sake for $.50 a can

smell is mostly corn, sight is mostly yellow, taste is mostly corn and rice, feel is thin and light, overall I’d say drink in the event you want to recall what it was like before you drank craft beer.

This was a simple lager. Nothing great, but better than Bud, if only by a bit. Aroma was missing, visuals were typical, taste was rice and corn, and palate was short and bland. Perfectly average.



Anheuser Busch Natural Light

ABV: 1.2%
Type: Pilsner

first impression: smells stale, faint and unwholesome.

Color: lemony, clear, and without depth
Aroma: faint and fleeting
Hoppiness: just a hint
Maltiness: most of the flavor is malt, but that’s not saying much.
Weight: surprisingly weighty.
Mouthfeel: thin, like a flat soda.
Belgian Lace: absent without a trace
Bite: just the slightest

second impression: what an absolute loser.
