2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
I haven’t 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 Otis’ (actually very nice) sister are finishing up a supurb fish dinner.
The scene starts with some song by an unknown band which goes, "IIIII’ve 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 didn’t 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 - I’d sure like to try it - with some fish & potatoes...however I’ll pass on the murder as I’m ethically opposed to it.

Draft at a Polish dive bar in Chicago. i think it was called Mr. Z’s??? Flavorless pale lager with no character. Touch of sweetness. Corny, adjuncts, $1.50 pint. The best part of this experience was watching the 60 yr old blonde polish bartender (dressed like a Eurohooker) yelling in Polish at all the drunk Polish old men.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in pint glass.
Appearance: standard light lager appearance-- clear pale straw, thin white head, scant lacing, plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: some corn and lightly toasted barley
Mouthfeel: light, crisp, refreshing
Flavor: light barley sweetness, plenty of corn, maybe a tiny bit of hop bitterness
Overall: it is what it is. It paired well with my burger and fries. Not exciting, but no offensive in any way.

Not good, but tastes like Chicago in the summer. Watery grassy corny. But one of my favorite of these macro lager sorts.

Not much to say here, but it feels good to be back in Chicago. Goes down like water.

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.
