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.

This was my reward to my self for clearing customs changing terminals and clearing TSA at ORD in what must be a world record of 20 minutes. This one was in the admirals club between concourse h/k in ORD. Right out of the bottle just to stay proper to style. Sloppy wet grains, some sweetness. Rice, grass, metal after taste. Light to medium body.

16 oz. can pours a clear golden color with fizzy white head. Aroma is not overwhelming, but has some corn, cereal, and perhaps apple. Taste is slightly sweet with a metallic finish. Body is light with lively carbonation. Pretty bland, but OK as far as cheap mass-produced pale lagers go. This one hasnít changed much since it was brewed in LaCrosse, WI where the brewery featured 6 silos painted as a six-pack of Old Style tall boys. Perhaps its longevity and nostalgia makes me rate this higher than I should.
