DEC09 2013 printed on the can, possibly a "born on" since Miller brews this.

Very pale dull canary yellow color, bright clarity and rapid carbonation. Clumpy soapy foam with some dish soap lacing. Looks boring.

Smells like a musty old dishrag, nasty.

Tastes better than that thankfully, some apple from the yeast, vague crackery malt. Dry aftertaste, thin and watery, bland. A real dumbed down lager, no structure or nuance at all, cheap buzz is all it is, at least it's not pretending.

As an aside, i've only spotted a couple old Strohs signs around town, but they're pretty cool actually, if you are into old breweriana.

12 fl oz. can, best by date on the bottom reads April 01, 2013, so I'm a few days late here, but that's nothing to cry over. Just learned from BeerAdvocate that this is a Pabst product, with a dismal 3.00% abv, not listed on the can anywhere, which is probably for the better. Landed the random bundle 15 pack on sale for $4.99 at the local beer store.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours a clear, see-through, faint yellow colored glass of water with about two fingers of fizzing white head that settles down to a layer of foam covering the top. One of the palest sickest yellow colored beers that I've ever beheld.

S - Smell consists of cheap dusty malted barley, carbonation, and corn adjuncts.

T - Thin & light-bodied. Some corn kernel, wet cardboard, and water.

M - Feel is clean, light, smooth. Virtually nothing here.

Overall, you already know what you're getting yourself into with this one before you even pop the top. This is quite possibly the "lightest" or, the lowest abv lager that I have tried yet. On the path to becoming a non-beer, or beer flavored water. With that said, it isn't nearly as foul or disgusting as heavier malt liquors like Steel Reserve 211 High Gravity. A fairly inoffensive, light lager that achieves what it is trying to do. I've got 14 more cans of this swill to mull it over also.

Pabst Stroh's Light ---2/5.
