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.

seymour (1471) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Drank from can at The Handle Bar, The Grove, St Louis, Missouri, USA. Cheap and drinkable when frigid. Fizzy and neutral. Overall, a pretty rough, watery light lager. I like the redesigned can, though.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2011
12 oz can. Pours a pale yellow golden with a small white froth. Aroma is sweet, grainy, a bit of honey and a touch of bread. Flavor is a little apple type of bite along with grainy and straw, kind of more bleck towards the finish as the sharp and bland grainy character kicks in. Light body and a sharp carbonation. Refreshing but pretty bleh

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Tin from neighbour. Shudder shudder shudder. Weak aroma, flavour and finish. It’s water, or rather it’s in the water. Looks rather like urine, fortunately tastes rather like a near beer. Pas Op.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
12oz can. Rating #247. Golden color with an orange tint and a decent white head. Slightly sweet grainy aroma, pale malts. Bitter bite initially, not hops though, just a little rough upon first sip. Aftertaste was mild and overall was drinkable. (1881)

"it’s the water" definitely tastes like "its water". Clear thin and general beer flavor

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Can @ Hi-Dive Denver. Slighty orangish golden yellow appearance with a white head. Grainy pale lager nose. Smooth, sweet, somewhat grainy pale lager flavor. More malty flavor and character in general than most pale lagers.

12 oz can, why even bother pouring it, I already know it is a light pale gold with a soapy looking white head. This is a lighter adjunct lager, and to be honest, one of the most unoffensive ones out there, the corn doesn’t blast you in the face, it is also cheap, but don’t drink it unless you are broke. For an adjunct lager, this is about as unoffensive as you will get. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 09-17-2010 05:54:07
