COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 there’s nothing more refreshing than a commitment to fundamentals.

AgentAle (792) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Aroma is bland malt and slight bitterness. Adjuncts and some carbonation present. Taste is much the same. Some sweet maltiness that is consumed by bland bitterness and malt dryness. Appearance is a clear gold with a pearl head that retains poorly.

Zarkam (464) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2014
355ml bottle from a supermarket in Helsinki, labelled as Pabst Blue Ribbon, 4.5% abv, seems to be the same stuff as in Sweden. Clear light yellow colour, tiny fully disappearing fizzy white head, no lacing. Aroma is mainly grain and corn with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is slightly sweet initially turning into a short bitterish finish with a metallic and chalky feel. Light body, dry/thin texture, lively carbonation. Quite a cheap feeling bulk lager, perhaps not quite as awful as Budweiser but on par with the cheaper stuff here.

Patrickctenchi (4090) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Can: Pours clear, bubbly gold with a gigantic white head. Lemon, barley aroma. Watery, cereal-honey malt flavor. Fairly sweet. Dull...aroma is not offensive, but the taste is incredibly lifeless.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2014

Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma of corn, grains, and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not bad as it fills the need when drinking mass amounts.

foyle (254) - Wyoming, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Appearance: pours a thick white head which recedes quickly. Light lacing. Pale straw color with much streaming carbonation. Aroma: corn husks, lightly toasted barley, not much else Mouthfeel: light and watery, a little papery. Finish is quite dry. Flavor: white bread, corn sweetness, maybe a hint of hop bite. Overall: ok, especially at the bargain price, but nothing to get excited about.

gmellison (426) - Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
