This popular light ale is the lightest of the McGuire’s beers. McGuire’s Old Fashioned Ale is similar to, but a step up from, ordinary American factory beer.

Draught at the brewery. Pours clear yellow with a medium, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is cracker malt and light earthy hops. Flavor is lightly sweet cracker malt, light earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Pours a lifeless golden with no head. Pretty flat. Stale lager corn flavor. Yeast dominates, like it is old. Pretty bad.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Draft in Destin chosen because it was a cream ale tick and low ABV. Fairly boring to look at...just like a macro lager. Slightly sweet, corny aroma but a hint of hops. Pleasant and easy drinking; very sessionable.

Meh. On tap at Mcguires. Looks and smells like Corn Pops. Aromas of light grainy malt, a hint of sweetness. Clear yellow color and not much for a head. Not too bad.

markwise (5187) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On draft at Destin location. Pours a light hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is light malt and a bit of mild bitterness. Flavor follows- light malt and a dash of hops. Beer for the uninitiated, but a great gateway beer. Light in body and sessionably nice.
