UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 Back to the original formula. More hoppy and a nice natural head. Good malt flavors for a mass produced. Beats the crap out of Bud and Miller.

Schlitz is the original "less filling" beer. Flavor is excellent, appearance is excellent, and overall it is an excellent beer for a small price. I’d love to see it become a prominent choice once again. My friends suffer from "snobbish" choices in beer and they are always surprised when I serve them Schlitz. I serve it in a glass and make them guess what brand it is. No one has ever guessed Schlitz and it surprises them to find that Schlitz is such an interesting beer. "Real gusto in the great light beer - Schlitz!"

Schlitz is by far the best beer I have ever had. I will never forget my first Schlitz. The moment it caressed my virgin lips, I knew I would never be the same...no, i was a changed man. I cant describe the chills I get just from popping the can open; or the pleasure I get from that first sip of Schlitz on a given night. I have found my reason for being, and his name is Schlitz.

Smells like warm bread, and flavor smacks of caramel! The best cheap beer in America!

mmm well, with not much out there we need a good cheap beer. I was happy to find an alternative to Bud. I like to spend maybe 50 cents a bier. Schlitz has been good I don’t know what has happened sinc it is now brewed by Miller

This is the best beer I have ever had. The only reason I don’t give the highest rating in every category is because I want to leave the possibility that there is always something better. But I have not found it yet. I started drinking Schlitz in college because it was cheap and it was kind of a fraternity joke where many of us started drinking this cheap beer. But I continue to drink it regularly to this day. Sure I drink other beers when at parties or bars where Schlitz is not available. But I will take a Schlitz over anything. Schlitz seems to be something of a conversational starter to because strangers will approach me when noticing I am drinking this "weird" beer.

Excellent. This is a great american lager. The name has become synonymous with cheap beer, but that is no longer the case. This beer is selling out in Milwaukee and its not just because of the pride. The overall rating of this is unfair since Schlitz just returned to the original 1970’s formula. I drank a PBR right after one of these and this blew it away.
