SturmWulf (65) - USA - AUG 16, 2008
Aroma of corn, cereal and hops. Poured a pale yellow with a nice large white foamy head that left nice lacing. Head quickly reduced into a think cap. Flavor of corn, touch of malt, cereal and hops. Medium of body, thin texture, lively carbonation with a long slightly bitter finish. Served at 40 degrees in a stein. Not a bad lager, if you like lagers. Slightly better than average for a macro.

Pours an extremely clear almost colorless color. Has a nice head. Some lacing on the glass.

Aroma is a little more grainy than most. Itís very sweet and syrupy. Smells like some hops in there.

Taste is sweet. Sweet is followed by a hop bitterness. It seems like it has a metallic aftertaste. Thereís a lot of corn in this. Itís very watery. Heck it looks like water.

Mouthfeel is light. There is a sweet aftertaste, it comes in late and itís surprising. Itís super drinkable.

Overall, itís pretty tasty. I like it okay. Iíve had much better, Iíve had much worse. I think this is a little too light especially for a íregularí beer. Itís hard to find, but this isnít something that I would go store to store looking for. If I saw it, I would probably buy it again, because it is hard to find. I prefer Coors or Budweiser, or most any others over this, but still, itís not bad.

Seems less corny / sweet than other macro /subpremiums. Basic no frills adjunct lager that gets the job done on a hot summer day.

ametras (780) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
946ml bottle. Clear yellow with a foamy white head. Flavors are corn and lemon with fruity and grainy notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, watery texture.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Single 355 ml can from Sobeys Liquor, served in a straight-sided chalice. Pours a deep champagne shade with copious carbonation and a fluffy, milky-white head that retains for a few moments and leaves a minor amount of lace.. Aroma is sweet cereals, light corniness, and faintly grassy hops; flavor is cloyingly sweet malts and some grass. Bit of an alcohol burn in the throat, or is that the carbonic bite? Likely some of both. Thin, gassy, with a reasonably thin finish. There are better basic Big Beer lagers; Old Mil is rather below-par.

Jabah (205) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
Skunky aroma. Low end of the totum pole. Looks like pee. Sort of bitter. Besides that, if served super-cold, itís drinkable. Not much else to say.

One of the better lower cost offerings. Lots of corn, little hops. A less flavorful version of PBR basically.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Aroma- Grain, barley and corn!!! Appearance- A pale clear yellow color with a large white head. Taste- Typical AAL but not bad, consider the price and the total disdain most have this is better than what most people make it out to be. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a smooth crisp finish Overall- This brought me way back to my days in the Marines, "Old Milwaukee" beer tents out in the field. It tasted better back then, but hey it isnít horrible now.

MRMedellin (215) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAR 13, 2015
Clear Golden beer with a stable white head. Some dough and cereal aromas are felt. When is tasted a light body is felt, with clean flavor sadly with a strong acidity and alcoholic aftertaste. In my opinion, the alcohol is not well balanced with the rest of the beer, so it is almost like a light beer with a high alcoholic content.

Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is cereal grains. taste is cereal grains, typical mass brewed beer. Little taste but best served cold. OK beer.

Old Milwaukee Light has been awarded numerous awards at the Great American Beer Festival. Most recently, it was awarded the gold medal three consecutive years: 2005, 2006 and 2007. Many of you are not only snobs, youíre ignorant snobs.
