Schlitz

Pabst Brewing Co

USA

Ahhh, The Beer that Made Milwaukee Famous. It was awful, but at least it wasn't God-awful. I wanted to get the full affect of this beer, so I sampled it straight from the can, out of a pilsner glass, and out of a plastic cup. My Wisconsin-born wife reminded me that cheap beers always taste better out of a plastic cup. From the can, it tasted like a flavored can, never a good sign. From the glass, it had a wonderful aroma of... a beer can. It had a watery, slightly malty can flavor (man, that's one strong can) that had a tinge of funk to it; I was surprised that the funk was of a non-canned origin. Finally, the Wisconsin rule of thumb proved true. It did indeed taste better out of a plastic cup. The smell was less can-like, the taste was less funky, and a bit smoother as well. Much more easy-drinking. I could probably drink this all night long at a Wisconsin wedding, which is the most common venue for drinking Schlitz in a plastic cup. Long story short, tastes like Pabst.

Wow. This sucks. Badly. Between this and budweiser, this loses. Seriously, I have nothing else to say about this. Find something else.
