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.

Drinkable but not much else. I drank it on the dare of someone else. If it was the only thing available I'd probably drink it again.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2006 When I was in college I would drink this beer every now-and-then. It was ok. I was poor and quality was not my priority. It did the job and gave me a wicked headache. Recently I went on a road trip with a friend to Syracuse, NY. Since I was sitting in the passenger seat and it was a friday night I figured I’d need some beer for the ride. I saw Olympia and bought a 12 pack for nostalgic reasons. It was the first time I have seen it since I college. Well, it sucks and gave me a shitty buzz. It also gave me gas that I think cleared out two isles in Wegman’s.

As cAPSLOCK and the bottle say, It is...the water. Not bad for the price, although the shape of the bottle makes me think I should be drinking apple juice or something

I remember my dad drinking this when I was a kid, and I think they must have changed recipes, because I taste it now and it is godawful.

Not the absolute worst, but lousy. I remember an old neighbor of mine used to drink this stuff when I was a kid and acted like it was a premium brew. (Who knows, maybe before Pabst-zilla swallowed it, it may have been) At any rate, I wanted to like it but didn’t. Just another old-man lawnmower "I’ll take one if that’s all there is" kind of brew. Tastes cheap and doesn’t make you crave another one. A typical piss-beer

I have 8 in the fridge and cant bring my self to drink them. The other four of the 12 pk were used as part of a piss beer taste test.

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.
