Draught at Georges Buffet in Iowa City, IA. Clear golden color with bubbly white head. Dilute cereal grain aroma with a sprucy, metallic note that presumably comes from the hops. Flavor follows the aroma with the addition of light corn and a pleasant hint of malty caramel at the end if you breath out through your nose. This beer was overcarbonated in my opinion.

My personal mass produced Beer of Choice when I want to pound down a six pack or find in on tap (not often do I find it on tap) The original recipie of Heilemans Old Style (or so I was told) that uses the Original Old Style artesian spring water and Kruesiened. (sp?). You will notice that when Pabst moved production from LaCrosse to Miller, they removed those descriptions from the OldStyle Can. Yes, it not Sam Adams, nor a Cask Condiitioned Ale, but it is a very good Macro Beer (City Brewery is the 5th largest Brewery in the US). It is not brewed to be a $7 a pint micro and should not be compared.

Very light and unassuming lager. Nothing out of the ordinary. A baby step for a BMC drinker to try getting into micros...

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Courtesy of Vinnys at the La Crosse airport. Clear straw color with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Nil lacing. Aroma of mild hops and wet paper bag. Light-bodied and crisp with a decent hoppy character, along with a hint of malt. The finish is bitter but not flavorful. All in all this is an average Lager.

Pretty good for what it is. An ordinary light lager. Yellow color, very light and simple hop and malt flavor. No flaws.

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Aroma of corn with a bit of sourness to it. Yellow color with a head that disappeared instantly. Corny sweet taste with very little hop character. It has a fairly full body. Pretty close to the Old Style of the 70s. I wasnt a big fan back then either.

Tastes EXACTLY like that Great "Old Style" that G.Heilman used to brew in the late 70s when I would shank the stuff from my old man as a kid! Good Bier!!

I used the can as an ashtray after I finished and the taste of the contents of the can didnt change much. metalic and thin flavored.

Can. Poured starchy yellow with a big stark white foam head. Starchy and corny, this reminds me of the old school beers my grandpa used to drink.
