A - This beer is ridiculously clear and transparent....looks like those Blu-Blocker aviator yellow sunglasses. The head is about one finger and short lived. It drops to nothing but a tiny ring of suds after a minute flat.
S - Husky and grainy just like PBR. I can smell the Heilman's DNA here, and that's not necessarily a bad think since I think they make some of the best cheapo lagers out there...definitely better than BMC water.
T - Wow. This is A LOT more flavorful than I expected! This actually has some decent toffee malt flavors and a nice hop tang. Damn...this is mind boggling. It looks like crap and smells decent, but basically like every other cheap "grandpa" lager but it tastes so much more assertive than any other macro I ever had. I'm impressed.
M - Medium bodied (quite full for the style) and highly carbonated to give a hefty feel on the tongue, while remaining playful and light enough to session like crazy.
D - I'm floored by this one. If I could find this more easily this would be my cheap fall back session lager of choice...I currently drink PBR or Old Milwaukee (strangely, both Heilman brews) when I just want to drink four or five beers with my buddies on the cheap. Good stuff for what it is.

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.
