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.

Really not a bad brew ... sits well and pretty under rated. Plan to drink more of this old college reliable beer.

"another macro lager that does nothing, for better or worse, to distinguish itself from all the other swill out there passing itself off as beer. i’ve had it, so i felt the need to review..."

Bork (241) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Moderately flavored pale lager with all the corn and cheap hops but a little bit of body. Make sure to drink it before it warms up.

bergstaden (1302) - Røros, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2014
PBR Sweden - Pale golden with a white head - some hints of malt - Weak and thin body, is there any bitterness at all here ? - finish does not exsist here - This was utterly boring

mkel07 (3556) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2014
Can from Liquor Mart in New York September 2013. Standard pale lager that doesn’t need a lot of thinking about, but sometimes that’s a good thing I guess.

EtTuCthulhu (1072) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2014
The color is a very light yellow, and it pours with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma blends corn, dough, and lager yeast, and the taste is mildly sour due to its overwhelming corn flavor. The after taste is fairly non-existent (but what is there is vaguely beer-y), and palate fuses a thick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation.

AlainG (1286) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Très pâle cette blonde. La mousse se résorbe en un mince voile tenace. Les arômes sont de maïs et d’herbes mouillées. Le goût est insipide, c’est même très près de l’eau avec un ajout de sucre. Ben coudonc! Ch’tu surpris moi là? (1216-030914)

mathieuc (1394) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours a lifeless pale golden with a thin white head that leaves in a moment’s notice and leave really light lacing. Nose is of corn, hay and cardboard. Taste is more or less of the same with some metallic notes as well. Good thing it isn’t too tasty! Well, maybe it is more cardboard-forward than the nose. Blah. This is nasty carbonated water, nothing good to say about it. Body is ultra light and carbonation fizzy. Mouthfeel is just watery. Never again.

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.
