Drank this from the can at a Christmas Eve get together. Usually I wouldn't review under these circumstances, but when else am I going to have a Stroh's handed to me.
The nose was grainy and a bit metallic, but there's a noticeable hop aroma. The taste is mildly grainy with a really nice grassy, earthy, bitter hop characteristic. There are also some fruity notes, but not necessarily off flavors. This is a very crisp, light beer that's a little heavily carbonated.
Surprisingly, I enjoyed this. For the style the hops were impeccable. The grainy qualities were kept to a minimum and it was easy to drink.

Along with Miller High Life and PBR, I think this is one of the better American macro lagers.
Not sure how macro the brand is, anymore, but this is a Grandpa beer. It no longer has much of the caramel notes that it had when it was "fire brewed."
What it's got going for it now is bittering hops. For an American macro lager, all I really ask of it is that it taste like beer. This tastes like beer. There is a mixed barley and corn grainy dryness here as well, but it has a clean hop bitterness and a slight sourness in the finish.
It succeeds at being all that it's trying to be. And how many of us can say that?
