Another bad purchase by mistake. Tastes unbelievable watered down. It still gives you diheara, but without the calories. I think the water used in the brewing comes from a bad stream in Mexico.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some corn. Taste is virtually non-existent. Maybe some mild notes of beer, extremely week. Feels light in the mouth and has poor drinkability. Overall I was unimpressed with this beer.

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, just 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.

Stroh’s Light has a thick, stark-white head and a clear, slightly bubbly, golden appearance with even a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, with light, sweet grain. The flavor is similar- very standard light beer taste. Bitterness is practically nil. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Stroh’s Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. For a light beer it’s excellent. Overall pretty good.

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.
