I spotted a 12-pack of cans of this classic 1960’s Schlitz formula, and just had to know what all the fuss in those ads in the 60’s 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 Bruno’s 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 you’re out of Schlitz, you’re out of beer!

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!

It’s 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.

SHIG (3868) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Can: Blew the fuck up, golden with white lacing head after I cleaned up my floors. Aroma is grassy and grain. Taste is grass, grain and very wet.

jackl (5474) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
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 there’s cascade in this.

i don’t know about experiencing timesless taste and all that...but this is miles better than the other garbage I’ve 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, doesn’t do much for me more than any other pale lager I’ve had. It’s clean and crisp, easy to drink a lot of, minimal flavor or aroma.

ordybill (539) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- A hint of hay and grass, a much cleaner smell than many other adjunct lagers Appearance- golden yellow hue, had a one inch white head. Taste- A much preferred taste for me, I could taste hay, corn and hops Palate- Pretty heavily carbonated but it works with this beer. I would consider this a full bodied beer on the palate for a lager Overall- A really good adjunct lager.

Good pale lager, probably my favorite domestic macro. Better than PBR. My wife loves to use it to make radlers.
