Better than most domestics. I appreciate that they have still kept this beer going from the Old Cumberland brewery days.

16oz can. Pale yellow, not much of a head. Sweet grain aroma and flavor, not much going on at all, typical large lager. Better than the BMC

dry sweet and corny...chalky refreshing and tart...sudsy soapy and satisfying thatís how i prefer to remember old german. with the burp of royalty! too bad you couldnt get the taste from the can it had to roll around in your gut for awhile so the flavor could be released. hey what about that bud girl on tv? the perfect pour ? give me a break! she knows as much about beer as i know about darning stockings.

As my friend said, this Old German is part of a clever scheme. It has such a tinny aftertaste that you want to take another sip immediately to wash the aftertaste out of your mouth. This can go on for quite a while.

Old German was another one of the cheap beers I used to drink back in the day. It cost $10 for a case of 16 oz bottles and didnít taste bad like the Millwaukee duo(Old and Beast) did. I bought a case recently just for old times sake and I found it kind of flavorless.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Reminds me of the 3.2% beer us G.I.ís had at the enlisted manís club at Fort Ord in the 1960ís. It was safe, easy to drink, and cheap. I recently tried the standard Iron City Beer and it was actually not bad. This tastes like the light version or water-added type brew. Has a hint of bitter hops that adds some astringency to the finish. Nothing bad about this beer just way too mild for a craft beer or even a BMC drinker. Might be a good beer for someone who dislikes beer with taste! Good belches though.

Bought a six pack of this beer at a local store to try. Typical light gold color with small white head; the usual look for its style. Aroma was light, some hoppy tones, adjuncts, nothing fancy. The flavor was not bad, but again, largely indistinguishable from its counterparts. The palate was thin, and bit oily, and mostly dry with light carbonation. A suitable beer for its type with a good price, but not exciting.
