Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own. The old time Schlitz purchased from Stroh’s which was purchased from Joseph Schlitz. Different than Schlitz Malt Liquor.

There is also a listing for "Schlitz Classic 1960s Formula". Please note version, and rate in the appropriate entry.

I only drink this brew in memory of my grandpa. He drank this stuff back in WWII and that’s why I drink it. This beer sucks. Don’t waste your money.

This is what I drank as a teenager in New York when I didn’t know better, couldn’t afford anything else, and didn’t have much choice. Typical boring lager.

Again, drank a lot of this in college before developing a real palate. Gold pour with skunked grains on the nose and palate.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. Typical sweet grainy, corn, light grassy aroma of macro pale lagers. Moving on.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Page crystal golden with a bubbly head like cola. Inoffensive pale malt aroma. Inoffensive pale malt and light wheat flavour. Dry, sorta refreshing, very light bitterness. I feared it would be worse, however this is actually ok. Better than BMC, for sure.

bwa5879 (706) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Clearish goldn pour, small bright white head. Sour rubbery lager yeast aroma, hint of citrus rind and cream. Average carbonation, thinner but bubbly mouthfeel, dry finish. Taste is grainy and every so slightly sweet, no detectable bitter. Easy tasting decent american lager.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grains, and malt. Taste of grains and malt. This light bodied brew was the thing in the past.

Had a taste of this at the bar last night - someone was joking about craft beer connoisseur-ship. As I said then, papery taste of garbage with some piss. Yum.
