Poured from a 16 oz. can into a pilsner glass. So light yellow in color that is almost clear. White head dissipates very quickly. Smells surprisingly malty for being so clear, which combines with the corn smell to make something that is not that bad for being of the malt liquor ilk. Full-bodied and lightly malted, this beer does a wondeful job of hiding that pesky 7.1% abv. Tastes a lot like many other macros, but somehow this doesn't have any of the skunky or foul adjunct tastes that many do. Not a bad buy for $4.50 for a 6 pack of 16 oz. cans.

Red Bull pours a darkish yellow, white head and it’s gone in a flash. The nose is sweet, maybe some alcohol notes, some malt, and some can. The flavors in this beer are, and not surprisingly, rather limited to corn, alcohol, and some malt. More carbonation might have helped. The hops are absent. Actually the alcohol punch hides well. Beer finishes sweet. Mouthfeel is thin.

This is not a BA worthy beer, this is a “getting drunk beer”… not my style.

I have not had a malt liquor beer in a long time; I can’t imagine this being one of the better ones. You can skip it.

2.5/5  rDev -2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Crystal clear, pale gold body topped by a bright white head that's in-and-out in nothing flat. The aroma is heavily estery. Alot of fruitiness, very little malt, no hops. The body is medium/light but the mouthfeel is dull. The flavor is aggressive in everything but what a good beer should be. Rough. The malt that is present is sweet and basic, but lacking in character. There are no hops to speak of. The finish leaves a "sweet spot" at the front of the tongue, and a slight stickiness at the back of the throat. Not alot of good things to say about this beer. There are much better choices in the malt liquor category.

Out of the 24oz can Schlitz Red Bull pours a common amber. Not a hint of red colour in this "Red Bull", as I thought that this was going to be some kind of red Beer.

Head forms quickly and leaves in the same manner, no wispy ring no foam film on the side of the glass, no nothing.

Nose mostly of alcohol, with the smallest amount of corn.

Palate has that carbonation bite at first, slight malt, and then its corn the rest of the way. Schlitz must have blown in that "just the kiss of the hops" from some distance, because I'm still waiting for the hops to make an entrance. I'm starting to believe the hops are going to be a no show.

After all of the above, the alcohol kicks in and you are on your way with a healthy 7.1% abv.

I didn't pick up on any plastic can liner taste, or any hops with the 24oz can Schlitz Red Bull. But all the same, we will be seeing each other again.

uff-da......take schlitz malt liquor bull and ratchet it up a notch....yikes! actually if you can get by all the adjunct unpleasantness, there is a bit of hop bite on the tongue that compliments the alcohol kick. this is the high octane, quick buzz brew for those who like the tongue tingling sensation of "just the kiss of the hops" schlitz products. my foray into malt liquor territory has left me feeling comfortably numb, but not totally stupid. try red bull for yourself. you might like it, but your liver might not.
