After all the hype on the net and word on the street I finally broke down and had to try a PBR, (Pabst Blue Ribbon). Also to make the decision easier there was a single bottle in a markdown bin at the local store. Price, 69 cents for a bottle of liquid goodness. When I got home opened the bottle poured it into a glass. Light golden in color, aroma of the beer I used to enjoy as a teenager/young adult. Take a sip not bad. Not much flavor either. Not at all like one of my favorite IPA’s but drinkable. All in all the best 69 cent beer I’ve ever had. Maybe I should lower my standards for a while. After all I am saving for another bike. Somehow PBR and a Surly cross check don’t seem like a bad pairing after all.
