Heileman’s Old Style Light beer has a thick, stark-white head, a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of faint, sweet, indistinguishable grains, and the flavor is the same, with a hint of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Heileman’s Old Style Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. It’s an excellent light beer. RJT

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pretty much the exact same are regular Old Style, except this one is a bit more watered down. Nothing really that special but I would take this over pretty much any other "lite" beer out there.

Not a fan, this beer isn’t even worthy of drinking when out at the ball park. If you have to choose between this beer and a clean looking rain puddle, go with the puddle....

Enjoyed while watching the Cubs play the Brewers at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL. This one was much lighter than the Budweiser I enjoyed earlier, definitely more watered down. Not bad?

Not that much different from regular Old Style, although more watery in every way.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
16oz can at the Cubs game...Super light clear and fizzy, very carbonated...Light aroma of skunk and hops...The taste is also very light, a light skunky finish but overall very plain, you can’t taste anything...The feel is super light, easy enough to drink, but not something I would go after.

This was one of my "get drunk" beers when I thought that I liked beer, but didn’t know enough to appreciate really good and great beer. Pale yellow, little head, taste of stale grain and tiny, tiny, tiny stale hop bitterness. Better than dog piss or tainted water I guess.
