COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For nearly 110 years, the secret of this Great Northwest beer hasn’t been a secret at all: “It’s the Water.” This and a whole lot more. Since 1896, our famous brewing water, superior ingredients and unsurpassed skill as brewers have combined to make “Oly” an affordable beer with a particularly satisfying taste.

95% malt.

This beer is at the top of the inexpensive heap in my mind. Its main use is for getting drunk without spending money and sacrificing taste.

We found three cans of oly when we were kids riding bikes. Someone didn’t like it I guess and through it in the rode. We drank it. I think it falls into that Hamms, PBR, Blatz class of beer. No class.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2003 Ahhh, good ol Oly Stubbies come to mind on this one. If it wasn't for the puzzles I'm not sure that I would have drank as much of it as I have. Good cheap beer! Good times!

I like trying to figure out the bottle cap puzzles. Has a little more hop flavor and quality in it that other american standards.

It’s the water...sure. Still better than the more-expensive Bud Light, and you won’t look like a sheep. Mountains on a CAN are generally a bad sign.

This was the first American beer we had in BC liquor stores

Wrong advertisment on the bottle "It’s the water", no no "It is water!". Sweet and dusty smell, pale yellow, nearly no head, fizzy carbonation. Malt, light sugarwater.
