foul odour, skunky with a mild graininess. Macro appearance - 'nuff said. Mildly refreshing, not a real standout, but not as bad as its reputation.

Suitcase Of Cans - Basic budget brew, tastes better than most in that age bracket

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2003 So now it's 'OV' instead of 'Old Vienna.' As if anyone really cares. This is just foul.

Old Vienna is a clear, light golden lager with a quickly dissipating white film of a head. The aroma is very faint and fruity, perhaps wooden. Light to medium bodied, it starts smooth but ends up shredding the mouth. The flavor is pretty faint, but I can actually taste some hops. There are notes of grass, hay, corn; maybe wheat and lemon. I really expected much worse.

Always sampled from a 341ml bottle. This was a staple growing up, I remember it in a stubby bottle particularly. Typical mac golden colour. Grain and corn taste.

355 ml can from TBS. Pours golden in colour, small white head. Adjunct aroma and taste.

Probably the first beer I tried when I was a child... stored in my father’s cellar in the old stubby bottles... dusty and a bitter, flat, overaged mess by the time I got around to it (probably about a decade after it was purchased) but a recent venture brought it back to life. Not as bad as I remembered, but probably not as good as carling.

This has to be the best beer you can get for a $6.00 12-pack. Not offensive in anyway and quite pleasurable to drink. OV, you are a pour mans dream.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 My favorite of the ’Canadian Standards’, which isn’t saying much. Very drinkable, happy little beer.
