I canít wait to try the new Schlitz from the old recipe before the tried all that fancy schmancy stuff . Give me a good solid Hoppy malty brew thatís drinkable and has a nice brew finish... Not this over done Miller Lite, Bud Lite stuff

This is what I drank as a teenager in New York when I didnít know better, couldnít afford anything else, and didnít 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 (4066) - 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 (655) - 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 (3303) - 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.

Ever since they brought back the original recipe from the 1960ís I will drink it on occassion. Decent tasting beer. Not the best Iíve had but not the worst. Worth drinking.

I recall buying this since it was so cheap and Iím pretty sure I drank an entire 12pack once and just peed all night and felt bloated.
