Can to glass shaker. Pours a light yellow with a moderate white head. Decent lacing. Really watery and is just typical of any / all light beers.
12oz can pours a clear pale golden straw with a large white head. Grainy malt apple cider aroma. Beery watery grain malt with a light hop bitterness. Light on flavor but not offensive and drinkable. A college favorite. Kleg (278) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2017
12 oz can. Very pale yellow pour with a large white head and decent retention. No lacing. Lively carbonation. Light and grainy taste, like a very light lager mixed with seltzer. Crisp mouthfeel. Not bad, not great. gripweed57 (2589) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2017
From old tasting notes. Pale yellow gold. Big bubbles lead to a brief disappearing white head. Faint briny malt aroma. Excessively carbonated. Little flavor or body. Thin, watery finish. wlajwl (6877) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2017
Aroma and flavor is not much of anything, watery with rather mild malts but surpringly drinkable. slowrunner77 (12147) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2016

Originally rated on 9/19/08. Old milwaukee aint that great to begin with and its worse watered down. Lower end as far as light beers go, there are plenty others i would chose first reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Let’s face it -- this beer serves a purpose, and it serves it well. A 30 pack costs less than 17 bucks here, and if you slam enough of these, you will get drunk. And that’s the point...you CAN slam enough of these. Doesn’t cause headaches for me. However, it is what it is, and is scored as such. LetsRiff (16) - Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2015
It’s refreshing. It’s a lawnmower beer. You could definitely chug a few of these while playing Flip Cup or Beer Pong. Not for the beer aficionado. Jabah (500) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
It is what it is....lawnmower beer basically. Mostly like the regular OM, but watered down a bit. I may prefer it more over the original. There may be a few worse, but not too many. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 21, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 1-2-13-
Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance –Pours a light straw color with a big billowy white head. The head has a surprisingly nice level of retention slowly fading over time to leave a rather decent level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is quite basic and consists mostly of some sweet corn malt smells as well as some light bready aromas. Mixed with the rest is also a very light papery smell.
Taste – Overall the taste is very light and watery. The taste begins with a lighter corn and bready flavor. The corn flavor is actually quite a bit lighter then would have been expected from the nose. As the taste advances these two flavors remain relatively constant but are, at the end, joined by a light caramel sweetness, a light papery taste, and a tiny bit of citrus. Overall it leaves a rather dry and crisp taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is very low in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is average to above average. Quite appropriate for the style, although even more carbonation may have been better for the very light flavors and drinkability of the beer.
Overall – If you are looking for something light then this is your choice. It’s flavors are super mellow, it is very watery,highly drinkable, and decently refreshing.
