This is an ugly beer that stinks, but is an underdog that rises to the occasion...watch out Keystone!

The beer that made Milwaukee famous...Hey, wait a damn minuet, this says it was brewed in Michigan!!!! In my younger days, If I was having a hard time deciding what to drink, I would threaten myself that if I didn’t decide in five minuets, I would have to buy Schlitz. I usually came up with something in about 2 minuets.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 Excellent! The dubious reputation of this beer is totally undeserved. Flavorful with a nice crisp hoppy finish, I'd stand this one up against most any beer in this category. I cannot understand why folks line up to worship King Bud when there are wonderful alternatives like Schlitz out there.

This is bad beer. Almost as bad as Genesee... but not quite so offensive.

a great ’underdog’ of a beer among the heavy weights out there, will give Bud a standing 8 count at half the price
