2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Courtesy of Vinny’s at the La Crosse airport. Clear straw color with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Nil lacing. Aroma of mild hops and wet paper bag. Light-bodied and crisp with a decent hoppy character, along with a hint of malt. The finish is bitter but not flavorful. All in all this is an average Lager.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good for what it is. An ordinary light lager. Yellow color, very light and simple hop and malt flavor. No flaws.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of corn with a bit of sourness to it. Yellow color with a head that disappeared instantly. Corny sweet taste with very little hop character. It has a fairly full body. Pretty close to the Old Style of the 70’s. I wasn’t a big fan back then either.

Tastes EXACTLY like that Great "Old Style" that G.Heilman used to brew in the late 70’s when I would shank the stuff from my old man as a kid!

I used the can as an ashtray after I finished and the taste of the contents of the can didn’t change much. metalic and thin flavored.

Can. Poured starchy yellow with a big stark white foam head. Starchy and corny, this reminds me of the old school beers my grandpa used to drink.

This is a decent, inexpensive lager. Crisp taste, best served out of the freezer. Quite a bit of fizz, but as long as it is cold this does not bother.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I heard good things about this brew , since its brewed at the old Heiliemans brewery where the best brew ever made used to come from, OLD STYLE, so i drove way outta my way to get a 30 pk of this, kinda a tough find in the twin cities. anyway, the thing that worried me is that this case must of been on the shelf a while...a loooong while, it was canned in FEB of 2003!! still was in the commerative fish can that said 2003 seriers on it. never the less, i cracked one open, and it tasted fine despite its age. I would like to try a fresh one sometime. Obviolsy not a really big seller at this liquor store, as the case looked like it had been ran over too! It really does taste almost identical to old style and that makes me smile.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A step up from old style. pours a little darker then urine yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly goes away. Basically water with a kick.
