UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Well, it was either a Coors, a Bud, a Miller, a Pabst , a Hamms or, this one that still tastes like Schlitz, back then where there were these beers. And we had sayings or rhymes that went with each, like, 2 Coors for 2 whores or Schlitz will give ya the shits; ya know, kinda stuff like that. I’m on my 3rd Schlitz now and so far, easy on it. I keep athinkin’ "this is a brew that has a historic depth of taste to it" flavor. A beer that was drank without judgement other than enjoying it.

Originally rated on 9/19/08. Pretty average american macro, comparable to the buds, coors and millers of the world. Flavor of corn, a little malt and hops. Not the worst thing out there.

This is the rebound of an ancient 60’s Classic. Gone is the ABM method that tanked this monolithic brew in the 80’s and 90’s. This brand has been re-re-born promising to echo yesterday-years greatness by embracing those Druidic incantations and magical utterances used prior to the greedy catastrophe. Not found in Virginia - yet - but soon...soon...soon

Can sent to me as a joke, but I’m actually quite glad I got to try this! Pours clear light yellow with a lot of white foam that quickly disappears. Corny taste. Slightly earthy hop nose with a hint of butter in the nose. Metallic finish.

I had this one in New Orleans. It’s a light beer and I thought it was kind of a joke. It’s bad.

Going through old beers With nostalgia this morning. Pretty much bad even for bad beer standards. Piss and cardboard.

Bright yellow pour from draft at Baumgartner in Monroe, WI. White creamy head. Fruit and wheat aroma. Balanced lager. Expected it to be gross and it wasn't. Had it before a bunch of times but forgot about it

This was recently brought back to South Carolina with the "Classic 60s Formula" tag removed. Was the recipe changed again???tastes of sugary malt, corn, and barley. It does not taste like the great beer I had 2 years ago which was Schlitz Gusto.
