I admit a bit of nostalgiac feeling toward Stroh's. It was my go-to beer of choice during college when my wallet was a bit thin. It pours a pale gold with a frothy white head that hangs around for a few minutes and even manages a little lace. The aroma is dominated by pale malt with a slightly mineral undertone. The taste is, again, malty with some crisp hops bitterness providing balance but never usurping the malt. Thankfully (and surprisingly) the adjunct flavors which dominate other macroswill are absent here. A great value, I'd choose this over other macroswill in a heartbeat, on a hot day or any other. I give this brew a slight edge over Miller High Life, but both are tops in cheap U.S. macros.

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.
