Don't try this at home

Or anywhere...

Schlitz high gravity. Ugh. Said new. Looked fancy. Was cheap. Smelled like, well a lot like "schlitz", but without the L, capisce? Undrinkable unless nose was held. Or, as I (Mrs. Brew Meister) found, take it with a tablespoon of straight lemon juice poured in. Then it was tolerable. Seriously, save the buck and a half.

The smell was sign enough that this was a bad idea, but we endeavored anyway. It was odd that the beer smelled bad, had little taste, and then a strong hop/alcohol finish. I'm not sure what the source of the smell is, but that is probably best left for the professionals.

I don't remember seeing "malt liquor" on the can; however, if I did, I wouldn't have authorized the purchase. Certainly not 2 cans "just in case we liked it".
