An aggressive pour generated a three-finger foam crown that lasted longer than I would have expected, then faded away leaving some nice lacing.
Slight aroma of malt and some adjunct; corn, I believe. Smooth mouthfeel, lightly carbonated and virtually no hint of hops. Truly a "Kiss of the Hops", as the 1960s Schlitz advertising states.
A not unpleasant bitterness lingers on the tongue, then fades away quickly.
OK for what it's meant to be, an inexpensive American Light Lager to compete against the macro brews. A nice, cheap lawnmower or session beer for those who aren't particularly discriminating.
Maybe 'retro' has some panache, but I thought it was worth keeping around for when I'm drinkin' cheap...

My dad use to drink Schlitz when I was a kid. So I thought I would give it a try. Well I liked it . Good beer nice taste not watery not to hoppy. Just a good easy drinking beer. Can't get it just anywhere. But will pick some more up when I get a chance.
Great for out at the lake. Or sitting in the back yard with a roaring fire shooting the bull with friends.
