Ok. Here we go. I havenít had the high life since I was 15. And back then it truly was touted as the "Champagne of Beers". Mostly bottled it held an upper middle class clientel. Back then the three kings were Bud, High Life and Michelob. Some of you can relate. Well lets get back to the rating. Pours a deep yellow classic pilsner color with a very white head. Nose is nasty. Corn galore. Then all of a sudden you take a sip and lo and behold a contrast is at large. Light with a bisquit malt running through. Iím not kidding. Who would have thought. Sure thereís a bit of corn in there. But by golly this is not a bad brew.

Bottle in Chicago. Light gold. Crisp and refreshing, but thatís about it. Has a solid cheap beer flavor. I feel old, but it could be worse. Living the low life.

Iíll say this - It is better than I expected. I used to really hate it - classic pisswater, bland as can be, a ticket to a depressing evening. You had to drink it down fast before it could start to flatten and warm. Even when I was younger and pretty much only macro pale lagers and malt lickers were available, I would avoid this stuff. But it is not a disaster. The aroma is decent, and the flavor is light rice and white bread, with a sprinkle of hops. This would still be terrible warm, but cold it is drinkable enough.

Malty and a bit sweet. Sever this classic cold and drink it fast. Otherwise you will taste it.

Pretty boring. I like new Schlitz recipe a lot better. This is a decent beer though.

Can, best by September 8, 2014.
Appearance: Clear pale golden body, lots of carbonation showing, with a tall and foamy white head that resembles dish soap. This would be perfect if the head wasnít thin and foamy.
Aroma: Mild sweetness with a touch of caramel, a whiff of corn, and a slight floral hop presence. Rather mild aroma and rather expected.
Taste: Mildly sweet with a hint of caramel and light corn. The finish is dry with carbonic acid. This is refreshing and not watery.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately high carbonation.
Overall: I used to drink this stuff when I was under the age. I know why I chose it over the light beers now. While itís not great, itís definitely a decent macro option and certainly better than any light beer.
