COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since 2001, contract-brewed for Pabst Brewing (San Antonio), as Pabst no longer owns a brewery of its own.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Straw color with a initially fluffy white head that dissipates to a small lid and a spattering of lace. Initial rubber nose, that mellows to a lightly malty and grassy aroma. Initial simple sweetness, near corn syrup. Middle has more of a grainy sweetness and a touch of depth and bitterness. Near malt finish, but also seems more watery. A dry chalky bump does some damage right at the end. A decent thickness for style. Still not much.

Hardly any different from regular Old Style. Perhaps a bit hoppier and slightly more carbonated. Pretty good.

Ouch, this one will hurt you the next day. It has some nice characteristics to it, but do not let that fool you. Somewhat full - bodied with that bite to it in the aftertaste, anyone that has had this knows what I am talking about. Don't knock it...it's cheap

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 6, 2006
Golden in color with a pillowy head that diminished about half way through. Very light malt aroma with a little sweetness as well. Flavor was generic. Malt and sweet with a little bitterness to round it out. Better than a Miller, but still not all that great. Cheap though...

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Light golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was nothing special with a light malt side some sweetness and just a hint of hops.The flavor came off as being a light malt and some hops with a cereal like quality coming through as well.sort of on the sweet side,but over all nothing special for a brew.it’s worth a try but little more then that.

This "draft beer" blows MGD away. It has some body to it. Still has that nasty Old Style aftertaste.

pkbites (694) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2002
This is the only ’genuine draft’ style beer that I actually find to be worth the hoopla. Real full body, and a nice, bitter after taste. It’s thick, not light and wimpy.
