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.

Can. Very pale gold beer. Crisp palate. Mild malt with a subtle tone of corn. A little metallic edge and virtually no hops. Utterly bland and a little offensive.

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.

Been looking for this for years. Finally got a bottle from Half Time. Pours pale gold with a 3 finger creamy/foamy white head. Smells bready. Tastes lightly sweet/bready but there actually seems to be a bit of hop present. Definitely better than many pale lagers, especially the Rheingold I just rated. Schlitz even seems to have some spicy hop.

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Can. Light clear pale color with a minimal frothy white head that mostly diminished with virtually no lacing. Light grass hop aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short duration. More drinkable than my expectations.

Ratman197 (13408) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Can poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, straw and light earthiness. Palate was ligt bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread dough and a hint of earthiness with a crisp clean finish.

bu11zeye (12756) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2009
(Can, provided by Bhops) Pours a pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grain, and metallic. Flavor of metal and grain with watery mouthfeel and dry, bitter finish. Claude what have done to deserve this punishment?

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
12 ounce can from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very pale yellow color. No head, lacing or retention worth noting. Godawful aroma is strongly grain with a stinky, sweaty vibe going on. Taste is almost palateable, strong grain, some corn, that odd stink in the finish. Absolutely no hops. Thin bodied.

12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a small sized head. Yep, it’s a Schlitz!
