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

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.
