Old Style is not just a beer, itís an experience, at least in Chicago. I wish I could get it in Ohio.

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.

Pours a light golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with more cereal grains. One dimensional.

Can @ some bowling alley. Light gold pour with a small head. Plenty of artificial honey. Candy corn. Syrup. Pretty light flavor. Artificial sweetener. Apple. Grain. Pretty flabby. Effervescent carb. Fine as far as cheap pale lagers go.

12 oz can. Pours clear/golden with minimal white head. Aroma is corn and grains. Taste was watered down. Best to drink while ice cold.

Beerdrinker79 (1861) - Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2015
16 oz can- Pours clear golden with a decent head that reduces. Aroma is corn, cheap grains, typical pale lager. The taste is sweet, corn, candy, grainy. About what i expected, the sweetness is a bit odd though.

Draft at a Polish dive bar in Chicago. i think it was called Mr. Zís??? 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.

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.
