2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
I havenít as yet had the privledge of sampling this superb lager, but I have seen it savored in a movie at a dinner scene, which made it look pretty decent.
The film is Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, and the scene which I recall is when Henry, his roomate and fellow scumbag Otis, and Otisí (actually very nice) sister are finishing up a supurb fish dinner.
The scene starts with some song by an unknown band which goes, "IIIIIíve got my FINGERS ON IT"..then the music is subdued, and we see the camera pan out, revealing the broiled fish, with what looks like some potatoes and some sort of vegetable (broccoli?).
Henry is rolling a cigarette (possibly pot, as Otis sometimes sells it) and they are all sipping on Old Styles.
After Henry introduces Otis to the wonderful world of murder (killing a couple of ladies of the night, and dumping their bodies in a dumpster), he first comforts Otis with some fries; then when they get home, he offers Otis more comforting words ("You didnít have no choice here, either."), he asks Otis if he wants a beer; Otis replies in the affirmative, then Henry quickly returns with a can of Old Style - Henry first takes a sip himself before he hands it over, explaining "There was only one left".
It seems that not even a notorious serial killer can resist this one - Iíd sure like to try it - with some fish & potatoes...however Iíll pass on the murder as Iím ethically opposed to it.

Tap. Buttery. Strong corn taste. Sweet. Nothing special here folks. End of notes from last night.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Another run-of-the-mill lager that I drank when young...and on a budget. Details foggy, but low rating is accurate.

Not bad, from a pounder can. Taste like many other cheaper pale lagers and although its not over the top in personality, it does come across as a little more processed, perhaps like a beer made by city brwing. Decent and somewhat refreshing fer sure. Not sure if I could handle more than a few of these babies.

I used to drink this in college, before there was good beer in the US. It was peer pressure, I guess, since they were from Chicago and I was a New Yorker. I felt like I had to drink it, especially on football weekends. I didnít like it very much and I used any excuse to avoid drinking it.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap at Wrigley because that is probably the best (only) place you should drink this. Pours clear yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty bland, sweet grainy malts, some skunky notes, grass. I was at Wrigley though. I have heard stories that this wasnít as bad many years ago.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. can. Generic pale lager. Better than BMC by a long shot, still with the sweet corn/grain flavor, but actually fairly crisp and clean. One of the best of the "old school" pale lagers. Superior to PBR, Rolling Rock, Hammís, etc.
