Ah Stroh's. My first beer back in 1979.

Well It pours a pale gold with plenty of carbonation resulting in a modest one finger head which doesn't stick around for a minute.

It smells slightly sweet along with a typical macro lager smell.

Taste is quite pleasing. A delicate lager with slight malt taste and sweetness. I could see drinking this with sushi, a burger maybe pizza.

Mouthfeel. Decent for a macro. The carbonation is a little course for my liking but it's not atypical for an American Macro.

Overall, I feel that this beer is underrated amongst it's American macro lager peers. A nice addition to any cook out or to quench your thirst after chasing your dog around the neighborhood.

It's probably been a few decades since I last had Stroh's, sneaking sips off of adult's beers at some backyard bbq function in the early 80's. There are still a couple old Stroh's signs around town, a relic of the past at neighborhood corner taverns like Mickeys.

Pale anemic gold, racing carb trails, feeble head that fades after the first sip to a broken patchy skim on the surface.

It doesn't smell bad, but it doesn't smell good either. Swilly wet grains, manila folders.

Taste is astringent and watery, slightly harsh. Papery grainy "flavor" that's extremely hard to pick up. Bland and only slightly offensive. Has little redeeming value, it's not one of the better nostalgia macros out there, PBR is far better for a generic macro.

Because I can't get Old Style where I live, this might be the next best thing. Inexpensive and great tasting for an adjunct lager, especially out of the bottle. Very crisp and refreshing, especially during Summer while watching baseball. I'm sure it's not what it used to be when it was "Fire Brewed" in Detroit, but in my opinion, it's still pretty consistent. Look, smell, and taste are always the same every time.
