I spotted a 12-pack of cans of this classic 1960ís Schlitz formula, and just had to know what all the fuss in those ads in the 60ís were all about (mind you, I did try the modern Schlitz, which tasted like it had the "piss of the hops", ie, it sucked balls).
The classic formula was consumed with some gourmet olives from the old Brunoís at the corner of hwy 31 and hwy 150, across from the Galleria.
I was indeed impressed with "the kiss of the hops"; I was able to, as the Commodores said in their Schlitz ad, "Sail on to easy taste"; but when I was done, I knew then what the old-timers knew - when youíre out of Schlitz, youíre out of beer!

Was pretty good. Nose was hints of grain and corn. I wanted to rate this higher, but for an AAL it should suffice.

One of the best of its style. It always astounds me when people write these like they're supposed to be Hoppy, malty etc. and they complain about the corn sweetness. This is American adjunct lager And as such for that style this is one of the best￼. superior to Bud, Coors, or Highlife in my opinion.

16 ounce can bought in Chattanooga, TN. Nice color, big white head. Nice flavorful AAL. Canít get this where I live, but I would buy it if I could.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a decent frothy white head. Aroma is malt, grass, and a little skunk. Taste is crisp but not too watery. I actually detect a slight hop presence. Good carbonation and lively mouth feel. Not too sweet on the finish. This is what I remember sampling from my dad as a kid. A classic!

Itís hilarious how this beer is owned by Pabst and it beats the crap out of PBR, in so many ways. PBR is pathetic compared to Schlitz Gusto.

New England Bucket List Trip Beer #124. Keg at Prohibition Pig Restaurant. Clear golden with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grainy malt, grassy hops. The taste is corn, grainy malt, mild floral hops. Thin bodied.

Can @ Parlour, Minneapolis. Light gold pour with a small head. Nose of white bread and sugary apple concentrate. Taste is right in that cheap pale lager wheelhouse. Syrupy sweetness. Apples. Grain. Pretty watery. Light and fizzy. Very active. Cheap stuff. Hilarious to know that thereís cascade in this.

i donít know about experiencing timesless taste and all that...but this is miles better than the other garbage Iíve tried under the Schlitz label. Still not good, but not horrid.

Wow, this had incredibly high trains for an adjunct pale lager. Not sure why, doesnít do much for me more than any other pale lager Iíve had. Itís clean and crisp, easy to drink a lot of, minimal flavor or aroma.
