I've had my fair share of it.

It rhymes with "****s" for a reason.

Turrible stuff. Just turrible.

Was it in a bottle or can?
The can is the discontinued style, while the bottle is the return to the early 1960's version that still had some taste( it was the best selling beer in America at the time)

Schlitz is the best American Lager available. It has the most flavor for a beer that is less than $7 a twelver.

Yeah said they switched back to the old formula last year. Yet they came out with the bottles this year? I wonder how they did that? I am pissed that they claim that the bottles are the new stuff while the cans are the old stuff.

Its the can........taste good ( well in macro terms) to me


I've never seen the bottles in my area......I barely noticed the 12 packs of cans it was in the bottom of one of the glass door refrigerators on its side

meh I guess its the best I can get in Budweiser territory
