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

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.

blutt59 (6142) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2014
canned, thanks to Art, old school grainy corn lager, nice clean sweet flavor, antiseptic aroma, mild thin palate

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

milewide (1682) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2014
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.

Travlr (14775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
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 didn’t like it very much and I used any excuse to avoid drinking it.

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 wasn’t as bad many years ago.
