Schlitz was great drinking brew. This brew had an ABV of 4.6% It pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The brew went down smooth. I really Like this brew when it was out on the market. It it a shame It is retired. Overall I giving this brew a 4 out 5

This is a Re review of This brew. got the last six pack. 10/23/14

Schlitz brewed JOS. Schlitz Brewing Co. (Pabst) with an ABV of 4.6%. This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. The smell is rich with grains and malts. This brew has look and the smell of an American Lager. The taste is smooth but sweet. There is a lot of flavor in this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. There is nothing over powering in this brew. I really like this brew. it has a nice crisp taste to it. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5.

Had this beer a while back, wow it was awful. I heard that the reason that this beer tasted so bad was that they changed the recipe, and that the original recipe was far better. It's a mystery that they did that, as this version of Schlitz was dreadful, hell I don't even want to try the original flavor, since the company brought it back. This one poured yellow with a lot of foam, far too much in my opinion, and tasted like sewage. Good thing that they discontinued this swill.
