Clear pale gold color with a decent but short-lived white head.

The aroma is mild floral hops with some hint of bread and corn in the background.

The taste is lightly sweet mild malt with a hint of corn and a definite, but mild touch of floral hops that lingers in the aftertaste.

Light bodied, crisp, refreshing and very drinkable. A definite alternbative to Bud and PBR for summer activities. I have to admit to some nostalgia points for what was my favorite beer 40 years ago, before they messed with it and before I even knew about other types of beer.

Serving type: bottle

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.
