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.

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.

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Pale golden with small head. Watery lager with corn and grain. Uninspiring, but not awful.

Nero55 (455) - Leeds, Alabama, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle. Golden with medium white head. Aroma of grains, corn (DMS), and some hop notes. Light body that is crisp and clean with a slight bitter finish. One of the better mass produced light lager beers.

I enjoyed the LaCrosse WI Version of Old Style in the 1980ís. I was surprised they Sold Out. The Taste and Alcohol Content Took a Huge Dive. It is now 1/2 as Strong. Change is not always good.

At a Cubs game, there was a certain obligation to try this beer. Appearance: AAL all the way. Yellow. Pretty large head. Surprisingly nice lacing, though. Actually, this looks a bit better than some AALs. Smell: Vanilla and corn. How does that work? Traces of grain in there as well, but sweet/buttered/corn with vanilla are the main notes. Taste: Like the smell. Truthfully, this tastes like a super sweetened Budweiser. Massive corn, and then vanilla. Sort of like a Gennessee Cream Ale might taste when blended with a Bud. This actually doesnít suck. The problem I have with this is that it may be *too* sweet for my tastes... I could see me not wanting much more after a few of these.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Yellow color, low to moderate carbonation, esp. after the initial burnoff of the head. Grassy and Cheerios-like malt flavor, with a relatively smooth finish, just a little attack on the palate. Better flavor than aroma.

Oh yeah. My dads favorite beer. Probably one of the better cheap beers out there. Nicely bitter and not skunky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
