Can. Actually not too bad tasting. Bready, sweet and I could find some hops surprisingly. Body was super thin and wet, though and not at all enjoyable. Overall, better than it should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled at the Spur in Waterloo. This beer was neither old, nor a Vienna. Okay okay that was a lame joke! The most tiny and insignificant trace of caramalt sets this apart from other crappy beers at bars. Meh, I didn’t have to pay for it, which is always a good thing for the over-all impression score!

foul odour, skunky with a mild graininess. Macro appearance - 'nuff said. Mildly refreshing, not a real standout, but not as bad as its reputation.

Pretty shitty as one would expect. alot of corn in the aroma and flavor, a bit of a rotten apple flavor too. Good for causing intoxication and a hangover, thats about it though.

My goal is to rate all the beer I’ve tried. That means rating the bad ones along with the good ones. This is one of the bad ones. Where I went to University, this beer had the raunchy nickname of "’Ol Vag___", but I was not informed of that until after trying it. This is one of the old Carling O’Keefe products (Carling O’Keefe’s Ol’ Vienna Lager) that was popular in the late 70s and early 80s complete with television commercials. It pours a weak yellow colour with little head. The aroma was very skunky (every time I have tried this). The taste is rather skunky as well, not a friend to the mouth at all. Strong carbonation, and very little discernable maltiness. The more I thought about it, the less I liked it. After a couple, I was able to safely declare it among the worst Canadian beer I had ever tasted.

Draft pour. Clear and light gold with a tiny sudsy soap head. Aroma is mildly hop, grassy floral and grainy Crisp and clean, not much flavour. Lots of carbonation. Light toast and malt. Dull dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2003 So now it's 'OV' instead of 'Old Vienna.' As if anyone really cares. This is just foul.

Old Vienna is a clear, light golden lager with a quickly dissipating white film of a head. The aroma is very faint and fruity, perhaps wooden. Light to medium bodied, it starts smooth but ends up shredding the mouth. The flavor is pretty faint, but I can actually taste some hops. There are notes of grass, hay, corn; maybe wheat and lemon. I really expected much worse.

Always sampled from a 341ml bottle. This was a staple growing up, I remember it in a stubby bottle particularly. Typical mac golden colour. Grain and corn taste.
