Perhaps the best of the ínameí American macrobrews. Despite the classy design on the can, it doesnít look all that great in the glass. But going down is another story. This crisp, refreshing beer starts out subtle and just rolls on in. Ends with a different, somewhat sweet taste that actually works (but Iím guessing would not if the beer isnít cold). A shame that this one is doomed to suffocate under Pabst ownership.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2015 Well, Pabst BC owns Strohís, but Strphís is better tasting than PBR, in my opinion, and costs a few dollars less than PBR, for a 12pk. Also, it beats any of the BMC beers.

Terrible stuff. But not more terrible than wierque. Drank this to keep myself awake during a boring dive safety video in Utila, Honduras. The local Honduran lager is better than this by a long shot, and thatís not saying a lot. Can.

Iím not going to rate this beer like I would for a microbrew. This beer is simply not in the same category as those beers. Its simple and its cheap. It tastes like a classic American Lager and it is very light. Overall I enjoy Strohís and I regularly drink the beer at bars and at home.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with minimal head. Aroma is sweet with corn and grains. Taste is similar. Some wet cardboard in the finish. Light bodied with a thin, watery texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Meh, not the worst Iíve had.

Can: Offered one by a friend. Sure, why not. Celebrating another fantastic Michigan Wolverines loss with a beer just as shitty as their head coach & athletic director. Pale straw-yellow, crackling & wispy white "head", gone in moments. Grainy smell, metallic, hard water, old, spent hops. Strange, corny sweetness. Metallic DMS flavor. Stale hops, stale yeast. Astringent, sharp & cutting mouth feel. As expected, this beer sucks. What am I doing with my life?

12oz can pours bright yellow with big white head that quickly disappears. Lots of carbonation. The aroma malt. The flavor is sweet and mildly malty. Not much else going on. Not drastically bad for a slick tasting malty beverage.

How is it possible for one brewer to make so many bad beer-like beverages? Who drinks this stuff anyway?

I remember this from back in the day but hadnít had one in a LONG time til the other day. Not turrible. Not a masterpiece. Itís almost nostalgic for me, so it probably tastes better than it really was. Not just pee water. Definitley the classic "beery" smell and taste of my youth

Alight look, this beer isnít trying to change the world here. Itís the BEST cheap beer you will ever drink. Itís actually not bad at all despite what anyone says. I would take this over a lot of the trendy beers right now. You can get a lot of beer for a small price. Itís the perfect cheap beer. It has all the weird flavors and smells but it works and works gloriously. I love Strohs, too bad itís hard to find. If you stumble across it get it and donít be damn snob.

What my dad and grandpa grew up on.
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a light yellow color with a quarter finger of white foamy head that died within seconds. Carbonation was rising at a pace that just seemed like it wanted to scream right on out of the glass.
The smell, well, that left a lot to be desired. Sweetened cereal?
The taste was the same as the smell.
On the palate, this sat extremely light and came across extremely smooth and simple.
Overall, its hard to bust on a beer that my relatives drank back in the day but for me, I canít really see myself having this again. I know better pale lagers out there if I want one.
