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.

Has a very pale yellow color. Smell is mild, some corn, Taste is crisp, light, some corn and grains. Overall not bad for the price point, but nothing special.

DATE: August 21, 2016... OCCASION: saying goodbye to the Olympics, I celebrate 120 medals with an American original... GLASSWARE: Browns pilsner.... crystal clear, tawny yellow body--as light as could be while still considered gold--with large, sparse bubbles jetting upward... white head is filmy, hazy, and clinging unevenly to the glass... fresh bread malts combine with corn to make for a beefy, tangy inhalation... some off-center funk is prevalent... flows as swiftly as water, with only a slight brackishness... refreshing, but flirts with apology as it exits swiftly with a light body.... taste is as expected--corn, honey, malted barley, and water, with water as the predominant factor... a mouth rinser, but having read the the excellent Ambitious Brew, this former Schlitz product is a solid American creation that gave the People what they wanted--a beer that could be slammed at serious rates without residual.... good for what it’s meant to do...

Originally rated on 9/19/08. Old mil. isnt the worst thing out there but it sure aint the best. Its greatest redeeming quality is price, easy on the old wallet. Bad aroma, so-so flavor middle of the pack swill.

De la macro cervecera Pabst Brewing Company(USA) esta American Adjunt Lager de nombre “Old Milwaukee” con la cantidad de 4.6% ABV. En aspecto es una lager genérica con corona de espuma amplia pero de duración efímera, perlas grandes, el color es un pajizo cristalino,se puede ver una actividad de carbonatación agresiva, un cuerpo escaso similar a el agua. El aroma es dulce, algo de grano, pan blanco, sencillo, el aroma es básico, muy limpio, ausencia de frutosidad y aroma de lúpulo. En el sabor hay muy poco, inclusive las lagers nacionales tienen mas carácter, se siente un ligero dulzor acompañado de carácter sulfuroso y limpio, granos muy al fondo, insípida y acuosa, en el paladar no aporta textura.👎

Actually much better than its more well-known cousin, PBR. The corn flavor is less metallic and solvent-like than most of its ilk. Surprisingly pleasant shit-beer alternative.

One of my favorite beers. It does the job well. Great tasting, inexpensive and just overall, impressive. I love how the Canadian cans have the cute girls on them as well.

Bottle at The Bowler in Fargo. Because this is what you do here. Piss yellow color (I’m assuming) and a grainy, slightly metallic aroma. Taste is also grainy and minimal. Basically water with some malty alcohol elements. Not a beer for beer fans but a beer for people who want to drink excessively while playing pool. Finish non-existent. Something your dad would enjoy.

Bottle. Pabst Blue Ribbon exportversion 4.5 %. From Kvickly Grenå. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. not good but not bad either.

35,5cl bottle@home in lager glass@approx 5 degrees C. Thought I was drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon but was in effect drinking a re-branded Old Milwaukee which is marketed in Scandinavia! Humbug and I urge you to buy neither when the brewers cheat like that. Pours clear light yellow with finger of white head with sufficient retention. Very faint aroma of malt and corn. This is also reflected in the almost nonexistent taste. Very faint malt and hops and no off tastes makes this close to drinking water with alcohol. Refreshing on a hot day I can imagine, but what is the point of drinking virtually tasteless beer like this?
