16 oz can with no freshness date to be found. Just a kiss of the hops and The Beer That Made Milwaukee Famous on the can.
Appearance: There is some decent lace that formed after the initial rush of foam.
Smell: Thick harshness of corn and hop, other than that no much else in the semi-clean aroma.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Very crisp light body, brash hop bitterness (Cluster?). The graininess takes a bite into the palate, some astringency in the back. Light on the malt with some alcohol in the middle. Clean and dry with a grainy in the finish.
Notes: Hands down this is my choice cheap lager, its right up there with PBR. This beer is served cheap at real bars and there is a bigger following for this brand than you think. Once the warm weather hits Schlitz and others like it will be on my mind.
Serving type: can

It's hard to knock such a classic piece of American beer history. Sure it's not the best but I still love it's easy drinkability and touch of hops and sweetness.
$2 a pint down at one of my locals. Gotta love that!
Serving type: on-tap

Sampling right now on 6/9/14. Bought a 6-pack last week for $5.89 at the Hy-Vee in Council Bluffs, Iowa...right next door. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 'Schlitz' glass. BA says it is 'retired' but guess they started making it again as the label says" Jos. Schiltz Brewing Company, Milwaukee, Wis."
Pours a golden yellow in color with just a thin white head. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. Good carbonation. The aroma is mostly of grains and malt. The taste is about the same with some corn 'sweetness'. Actually goes now easy and isn't that bad. No bitter or harsh aftertaste for this old time brew.
