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.

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

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 (1055) - 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.

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 (1348) - 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.

Transfer from BA review on 12-31-12- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – 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 – The smell is a mix of corn sweetness, some grainy aromas as well as a light citrus hop smell. Taste – 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 – 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 – Simple and highly drinkable with no highly offensive off flavors. With its cheap price, it makes for a decent party/session brew.

My grandfather’s 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 it’s not something I would buy.
