Strohs is a light colored beer with a quickly dissipating head. For the style it goes down nice and simple if you get a nice batch. Not a lot to talk with the taste. Really like that you can buy a 15 pack. made by pabst better then the bud or miller offerings

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Yellow to straw and clear, fizzy, but the head was surprisingly decent and left some decent lacing too. Tons of rising bubbles.

Grains and grassy aromas, maybe a touch of hops, adjuncts round out the smell.

Taste followed the smell, lots of corn and grains with a little bit of hops and nothing too special.

Feel is light and well carbonated, fizzy.

Overall it's quite unimpressive but not entirely undrinkable.

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of slight sweet malt, pale malt, grain, and slight citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Adjunct Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of grain, pale malt, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of citrus hops. Overall, decent aroma, blend, and body for an American Adjunct Lager.

Quite a pale yellow beer, typical macro looks. Decent head, a little thicker than most and lasts about as long as any mass-produced AAL; that is, not very long. Not much visible carbonation, glass like clarity. Boring looks. Smell is grainy, a faint hops nose, subtle metallic aroma, wet grass. Taste has a brief flash of grainy sweetness, fades quickly to adjunct/barley lager tastes. Minimal hops bitterness, clean finish. About average tastes. Light, bubbly carbonation, a little too much for my tastes, but not bad overall.

In the interest of not trashing a beer I love, this review will be a bit more "to-style".

Brilliant light yellow with a single finger, quickly receding, white head. Some lace, but not much.

They must do a short boil on this, cause I get that corn smell. A hint of earthy hops, grain.

Brisk. Cheap grain taste, but has the slightest hint of citrus and pine. More bitter than most beers of the style.

Light-bodied and effervescent, what else?

Overall, I definitely think that Stroh's is one of the best, if not THE best, of the macro adjunct lagers. The fact that the price is right only makes it better. While I would still rather have a well down craft ale, sometimes you just want a simple, cheap beer, and this fits the bill.
