The Old Milwaukee brands have always stood for steadfast American quality. These masterfully crafted lagers revel in being predictably superior and uncomplicated. No gimmicks, just great tasting beer. How great? Old Milwaukee Light is the most award-winning light beer in the history of the Great American Beer Festival. Which proves that thereís nothing more refreshing than a commitment to fundamentals.

Old Milwaukee is a great staple beer. My family has drank Old Mil for 3 generations. It is affordable and non-offending. Nose is Empty beer-can. Appearance is yellow like a draft is supposed to be. Palate is light hops and malt. Overall 17. Simple and loveable.

Pointless. Absolutely pointless. Since it is safe the drink the tap water now in Milwaukee, there is no further need for this beer.

Transfer from BA review on 12-31-12- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance Ė Pours a straw color with a big billowy white head. The head has a pretty good level of retention, slowly fading to give a quite nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The smell is a mix of corn sweetness, some grainy aromas as well as a light citrus hop smell. Taste Ė The taste begins with a grainy flavor mixed with flavors of corn and rice. While lightly sweet initially, some more sweetness comes to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. At the end of the taste a light citrus hop and a tiny bit of paper flavors comes to the tongue giving a rather simple and mild, but mostly clean (beyond the light paper taste) and crisp flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel Ė The body of the beer is quite light in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather high. The light body and the higher carbonation level are very fitting for the simple flavors and crispness of the brew, accentuating the drinkability of the brew. Overall Ė Simple and highly drinkable with no highly offensive off flavors. With its cheap price, it makes for a decent party/session brew.

My grandfatherís beer. This one is on the light end of the pale lager spectrum. The aroma is grassy, the taste grainy and mild, the palate light, and the finish smooth. Overly gassy carbonation. I can drink it with him but itís not something I would buy.

Enjoyed on tap at Franks Power Plant in Milwaukee, WI while doing karaoke with friends. This one isn't exceptionally good, but it's also not exceptionally bad either. I can drink multiple and have horrible stomach pains, but no blistering hangover the next day. So that's good, I guess.

Nummenrannassa. 0,355 l bottle labelled as Pabst Blue Ribboon, is this the same stuff? Nothing disturbing, nothing to remember in this beer.

Drank from a can while on holiday and couldnít find any good beer. The beer has very little taste, maybe a hint of hops.

Anyone out there remember the commercial "tastes as great as its name." Hmmm...I hope I donít sound too old saying that, well, anyways, hereís my take on this. When this was actually poured into a pint glass, this is what I saw. There was a semi-decent golden to yellow color with a rapidly dissipating foamy white head. There wasnít any lacing. The smell had some cooked corn/rice of sorts and that was it. The taste was sweet through the cooked corn/rice of sorts. The palate sat about a light to medium and had a decent sessionability about it. Overall, hmmm....growing up this was my fatherís go to beer to pour over the Memorial Day pig roast. I remember fairly well watching him sip over the can and then pour over the pig. It was kinda fun back in the day to watch everyone around me have a good olí time with beer and I thought back then maybe some day Iíll have my beer. Wow, what a walk down memory lane tonight as I see how many beers Iíve actually consumed and finally got around to this and honestly, would I have this again? Probably not. Why? Well, there just really isnít much there. Maybe someday, Iíll do my own pig roast with my son and buy some of this just to show my son how much of an idiot I look like.
