1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 Canned. I got a sixer to compare it to LaCrosse Lager, which is now being microbrewed in the original Old Style brewery. Even without a comparison, I could tell this was the loser. Corny taste among other adjuncts at work. Although there is... wait a minute... a hint of hops and yeasty lager taste poking through at the end. So not totally beyond redemption. Better than crappy Budweiser. Guess thatís why Wrigley Field switched to Bud: bad team, bad beer.
Slight re-rate, Nov. 03: I moved it up a notch after having another, and finding it still does what it does best: get you happy in a hurry.

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.

At Cubs spring training in Sloan Park so I HAD to have an old style! Traditional lager taste with a biscuit wheat tang. Rot gut but so what? Play ball!

Light pale yellow in color. "Like natty light, but not as good." Canít think of a better way to put it.

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.
