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.
*Haven't had on in a long time. Had some recently and seems like it has taken a bit of a nose dive. Did not taste as good as previous times. Don't know if it's the water, recipe, etc. That is why I'm lowering my review.

12 oz. can poured into a coke glass.
A - Straw. Half- inch head goes away fast. Spotty lacing.
S - Barley and bread.
T - Lightly carbonated with sweet barley malt, grains, and faint hops. Crisp with no aftertaste.
M - Light.
O - Tastes much better than I remember 20 years ago. Quite refreshing! I think I'll have a couple more tonight. Cheers!
