Pabst Blue Ribbon

    Tonight I stumbled upon a beer I was unfamiliar with. A brewery known as Pabst offering a "Blue Ribbon" beer was too tempting for me to pass up. Apparently, this beer was selected as "America's Best" in 1844.

    Appearance: Golden, crystal clear, good head that quickly dissipates.

    Aroma: Light and crisp. There is definite corn aromas, but not off-putting

    Taste: While there is some definite corn taste, I can detect a toasted flavor from the malt, along with a surprising (although subtle) fruitiness reminiscent of bananas. This is a different fruitiness than what one would experience from a warm-fermented ale. It is much more crisp.

    Drinkability: Very drinkable. I was able to quaff 6 of them from the beer-bong without stopping to breathe.

    Overall impression: Crisp, clean, and easy to quaff. For the style of Light Lager (what other style is there?), I would give it a 4.7 out of 5.0.

    this is by far the most thought out and complete tasting review we've had on this site... somewhat disconcerting.

    One of the most popular styles, yet so little talk about it. I wish some "craft breweries" did some light lagers. A 8% lager with lots of corn is damn good, yet hard to find... in fact I've only had one because I brewed it.
