Bottle. Defintely better than BMC macro swill, but still macro swill nonetheless. Kind of tastes like Michelob to my novice palate.

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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Bottle. Pale yellow color with a weak white head. Malt and grain aroma. Grain and bread flavor with a light malt backbone. Solid old school beer.

My Bottom Line:
Light bubblegum, honey-laden corn and doughy yeast are streamlined in this drinkable lager.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the clear blond.
-Hops are an afterthought (way under what a German Pils has, for example).
-This is quite reminiscent of industrial Lithuanian brews in that it is very clean, shares only a touch of adjuncts and has a few well-placed esters.
On tap at The Prohibition Pig.

After its hiatus that lasted much of my adult lifetime, Schlitz reappeared in 2012 after its rumored restoration to its 1960s original swagger. After being subjected to this beer in the late 1980s during its horrible existence as stank swamp water, as a teenager, I considered it one of the worst beers available. I was so enthused by its renaissance, I labeled it the perfect example of the "bohemian style beer" that was consumed on the rooftop in "The Shawshank Redemption"....I gave it an "almost 3" because of that..it deserves a swig.
