The first time I had a beer was when a friend stole two Schlitz from his parent's fridge when we were 14. I drank half a beer and it tasted so bad I never drank another until I was 24. I tried Schlitz again for nostalgia's sake a year ago (age 36) and...yeah, it wasn't as bad as I remember. Mostly just your typical American adjunct lager, though the look and mouth feel were a wee bit better than Bud, Coors, etc.

There is nothing special about this beer. Light hops, with a slightly dirty grain taste.
