Re-rate: 1/18/03: Hands-down my favorite, cheapie, macro-type beer. There is actual taste to this one. Pours out to a darker than usual gold for this style with a light aroma of grain. Taste is very refreshing and their is some actual hop and malt taste, albeit light, here. A staple of my 'fridge, next to Bell's Stout/Two-Hearted/Oberon.

12-14-01: When this beer was made in Detroit, it was hands-down better than other U.S. macros. When production shifted out of state, the taste suffered. Pabst has done a decent job of reviving it in recent years, but it is still a notch below what it was years ago. I still have a soft spot for this beer, but it isn't as widely available as it used to be. Good old Detroit Strohs was a very good American Lager.

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.
