It tastes like Schlitz. Wow, what a surprise! A good American lager, no noticeable flaws. The only thing is that I cannot see, smell or taste anything different about this Schlitz. But whatever, it´s a good beer for a hot summer afternoon.

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.

on tap at pro-pig, waterbury. served in a priceless schlitz glass. clear pale yellow pour with a very small and disappearing forever white cap, no lacing. grainy malts, pale cereals, white grape juice, pepper, metal, herbal-grassy blandness, plasticine. moderate to low carbonation, light body - oily and surprisingly not watery, smooth, relatively dry and bland herbal-grassy finish. drinkable.

Beautifully clear medium straw color. Fluffy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is hoppy and clean. Taste is light and hops are just right. I can really get some hops in this beer, without it being too hoppy. A little herbal. Crisp, clean palate. A nice all around beer for the style. I highly recommend.
