Had this beer a while back, wow it was awful. I heard that the reason that this beer tasted so bad was that they changed the recipe, and that the original recipe was far better. It's a mystery that they did that, as this version of Schlitz was dreadful, hell I don't even want to try the original flavor, since the company brought it back. This one poured yellow with a lot of foam, far too much in my opinion, and tasted like sewage. Good thing that they discontinued this swill.
