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.

Very Light Pale Yellow, Big Head, Dissipates Quickly, Some Spotty Lacing. Peppery Aroma. Little Taste. Whatever Taste there is, it is of Corn, Light Malt. Slightly Sweet, Light Hint Of Bitter. Watery, Bland. Beats drinking water or pop. American classic, although I’ve lived in Milwaukee and never tried it before. Since not much going in the can, they try to mix it up on the outside of can. This one came in camouflage and orange colors. I guess you could use it as a calendar reminding you that it is a hunting season. However, It is a safe bet, that You are a Redneck if you use beer can designs to tell seasons... Pass it...

Bottle. 4.5% Pabst Blue Ribbon. Pale yellow colour with a white head. Not much flavor here. Watery mouthfeel. It?s drinkable, but I just don?t see the point.

A steady pour into my teku glass produces a 1/2-finger thick, almost perfectly white colored head that leaves little lacing on the sides of the glass. The beer is a dull yellow color that shows a brilliantly clear, yellow gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells grainy, vanilla, lightly boring like notes, and it has a corn candy like character to it as well.

Fairly dry tasting, with lots of water and grain notes that permeate the palate and a touch of firm, bubbly character in the finish. Bubbly notes provide drinkability, chuggability, and low boost. The body is really quite light, and the carbonation provides a nice, balancing texture to keep this lively on the tongue.

This is half bad, definitely a notch above the Milwaukee’s Best Light that I just had. This is fairly dry, with no yeast derived spiciness and character; it could dial back the cornjust a bit and could have a more interesting pale grain character, but it is better than I was expecting and is enjoyable enough.

(35 cl bottle from local supermarket; label reads "Pabst Blue Ribbon. This is the EXPORT PBR beer.; No BBD but a stamp on the neck reads O1272014BO7080850) Apparently foreigners are not good enough to receive the actual PBR and instead we’re given this swill. Pours a clear piss yellow with little, white head that dissipates immediately leaving nothing but a thin film on the surface. Aroma is weak and dominated by malty, cereal notes as well as corn and a hint of dust. Medium carbonation, light body, watery texture and a short and sweet finish. Flavour is mostly water with a bit of sweetness and no noticeable hops. Penalty points for deceiving European hipster wannabes and a drainpour either way.

jsquire (3464) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pale yellow color out of the bottle. Fizzy white head that disappeared quickly. Corny nose with lots of acetate. Sweet beer with an odd metallic taste. Corn, cardboard and some finger nail polish remover. Not even good crap beer.

574deadzone (1037) - North Central, Indiana, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Fuck yeah, buddy. Pours a very pale straw golden with a thick rocky off white head that leaves a shitload of clumpy lace like you wouldn’t believe. Nose is chrome and cake frosting, with a touch of biodiesel. Kinda sweet, not really bitter at all. Very, very light bodied, not much to it at all, with a metallic twinge on the finish. Completely inoffensive, yet slightly offensive. Those fucking Will Ferrell commercials are great though.
