Bottle at blanski house. Corny! Wholesome, sweet. Tacky with peroxide but cleanish. Way better than PBR.

For an adjunct lager, the taste is surprisingly inoffensive. Yeasts, Cereal Grains, Malts, and a bitter hoppy finish. Itís good if you normally drink this style of beer, but I definitely wouldnít go out of my way to try this again.

Tasty beer to accompany a Chicago-style dog at a Cubs game, but not much more. Sure, there is some darker caramel color, but the beer is basically a fizzy macro brewed on a small scale.

12oz can. Rating #392. Clear, pale yellow with a white head. Mild aroma, lightly sweet grains, clean. Sweet graininess up front, a touch too sweet, mild aftertaste. Not bad. (2405)

Wrigley Field. Hot dog. Cubs and cold beer. Did I want anything with more flavor? Not really.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste is light bitter. Minimal hop presence with mostly corn and grain. Medium bodied with a surprisingly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, Iíll always like this beer. Unlike some other beers out there, it never pretends to be something itís not. Old Style will always be Old Style, and will always have a place in my fridge and my heart. Go Cubbies!

Prior tastings from back in the day. High school beer - cheap, tasteless and not too strong. What can I say? They didnít have good beer back then and I had no money.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium yellow with a fizzy white head. Actually some lacing with this one which surprised me.
Aroma has some corn but also some bready grain and grassy hops faintly resembling a german pilsner. Pretty good.
The flavor starts off with some light cooked vegetable and corn and is unfortunately not as good as the smell. Some faint hop flavor and a light bitterness coming forward about halfway through. Mouthfeel is watery.
Overall, this is a pretty good AAL. A lot more flavor than BMC and a nice, cheap option.

16 oz can sans the brown bag. Ok, I am going to be gererous due to the narcotic effect of nostalgia...this beer brings back memories of yore, like the sleepy 50ís and crazy 60ís specifically. This beer, and itís more refined sibling, Special Export, WERE very good beers during my maturation days. And, truth be told, I always liked the pictorial of monks parading on the cans, drinking beer on the way to matins, or whatever. That was then, before the brewery closings, shakeouts, buyoffs, how-to- ruin-beer-by-letting-the-suits-run-the-fundamental itself! OK, Iíll shut up about that. Anyways, regarding todayís new Old Style, I was pleasantly surprised, no small feat as I am an import brand slave (read my other reviews please). This is a very fine American Lager, with great aroma, small bubble carbonation due to krausening again, that girl-next-door kiss of the hops (nothing overwhelming here), mild background maltiness and all around smooth finish. Pricewise, I guess they call this a "premium" beer. Worth a try. Prosit!

Can @ home. I picked up a twelver of this for todayís Chicago Cubs opening day game. How the fuck havenít I rated this already? Piss yellow color with a white head. Bland, grassy, straw, pale malty aroma. Thin body but it does have more flavor than other macros and not nearly as bitter. Easily chuggable and the thing is that it is unpretentious!
