Boy, was I surprised to see this ol' beauty. I noticed it for some reason in a carry-out cooler, and knew I had to pick it up. I've never seen it for sale forever. The taste reminds me of a beer long ago, tastes ok, not the best, but the kind of beer you put in a styrofoam cooler and head out to the fishing hole. Cheap and decent, and sometimes that's the best beer of all.

They still make this shit? It tasted horrible 20 years ago! It was the water alright, after your body had processed it!

Drinkable but not much else. I drank it on the dare of someone else. If it was the only thing available I'd probably drink it again.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2006 When I was in college I would drink this beer every now-and-then. It was ok. I was poor and quality was not my priority. It did the job and gave me a wicked headache. Recently I went on a road trip with a friend to Syracuse, NY. Since I was sitting in the passenger seat and it was a friday night I figured Id need some beer for the ride. I saw Olympia and bought a 12 pack for nostalgic reasons. It was the first time I have seen it since I college. Well, it sucks and gave me a shitty buzz. It also gave me gas that I think cleared out two isles in Wegmans.

As cAPSLOCK and the bottle say, It is...the water. Not bad for the price, although the shape of the bottle makes me think I should be drinking apple juice or something

I remember my dad drinking this when I was a kid, and I think they must have changed recipes, because I taste it now and it is godawful.

Not the absolute worst, but lousy. I remember an old neighbor of mine used to drink this stuff when I was a kid and acted like it was a premium brew. (Who knows, maybe before Pabst-zilla swallowed it, it may have been) At any rate, I wanted to like it but didnt. Just another old-man lawnmower "Ill take one if thats all there is" kind of brew. Tastes cheap and doesnt make you crave another one. A typical piss-beer
