I haven’t as yet had the privledge of sampling this superb lager, but I have seen it savored in a movie at a dinner scene, which made it look pretty decent. The film is Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, and the scene which I recall is when Henry, his roomate and fellow scumbag Otis, and Otis’ (actually very nice) sister are finishing up a supurb fish dinner. The scene starts with some song by an unknown band which goes, "IIIII’ve got my FINGERS ON IT"..then the music is subdued, and we see the camera pan out, revealing the broiled fish, with what looks like some potatoes and some sort of vegetable (broccoli?). Henry is rolling a cigarette (possibly pot, as Otis sometimes sells it) and they are all sipping on Old Styles. After Henry introduces Otis to the wonderful world of murder (killing a couple of ladies of the night, and dumping their bodies in a dumpster), he first comforts Otis with some fries; then when they get home, he offers Otis more comforting words ("You didn’t have no choice here, either."), he asks Otis if he wants a beer; Otis replies in the affirmative, then Henry quickly returns with a can of Old Style - Henry first takes a sip himself before he hands it over, explaining "There was only one left". It seems that not even a notorious serial killer can resist this one - I’d sure like to try it - with some fish & potatoes...however I’ll pass on the murder as I’m ethically opposed to it.

A blip of grassy hop character brings a bit more balance to it judging by the aroma. Pours a very transparent pale gold leaving a finger of frothy white foam behind. Small hop taste and finishes with a buttered corn taste. Light, crisp bodied, fizzy carbonation thanks to their so-called "krausening" process

Can at Starlight. I've recently discovered Hamm's, which I consider not too bad for an ultra budget brand. Sometimes I've been known to reach for PBR which hits a satisfactory price to quality ratio (albeit low). So, why not try out some Old Style. I can't remember if I've previously drunk this before. It's noticeably rougher around the edges than even those aforementioned bargain brands. Old Style has more pronounced candy corn and cardboard box flavors. It's a little sour and metallic. Probably won't be reaching for this one again, but I have to say I still prefer it to Bud.

If not for the cult following of this "beer", it would have been gone long ago. Some people seem to enjoy drinking this kind of "beer". Not much taste, no flavor, flat is the best way to describe it. Hops? Sure, all USA beers have that stuff by the bucket because it gives their "beer" longer shelf life. Longer shelf life???????? What happened to the screams for "fresher" beer by all the craft beer crazies?????????????????? They seem to forget that when the price is lower. I cant see drinking any more of this, even if it is the last can of beer on earth.

An old stand by that I'm way overdue to rate. Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head that rapidly recedes. The aroma is grainy and has lots of corn, along with some light grassiness, bread, and spice. The taste has a bit of sweetness. Flavor is grainy and full of barley. However, it is balanced by grass, lemon, and cereal, and these flavors really save things here. Faint bready aftertaste. Light in body and with a thin texture. Not all that good by any means, but this is really good at a Cubs game. Trust me.

Bottle at ORD. Corny, sweet nose, touch of lemon hops. Pale gold with a fine head. Sweet, grainy, corny, lemon, some grass. Thin, watery. Ass, but could be worse.

12oz can from High Life Bar Milwaukee. Clear and headless I assume. Grain aroma. Easy drinking. None of that pesky flavor to get in the way. It is beer I guess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

michcam8 (585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Pours a light golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, honey, light malts, faint earthy hops. Taste is of lemon, grainy malt, honey dew, doughy bread and grass. Thin mouthful. Dry finish. Not bad.
