Why Old Milwaukee Light is rated so high and this one isn't is beyond me. Anyways, 16 oz pounder poured into a glass for appearances' sake.

Appearance (3.5) : Dusty, fluffy white cap about 3 fingers tall, receding to a stout two fingers and staying there. Impressive. Body is typical pale straw colored with almost no opacity.

Aroma (3.5) : Sweet grain, musty barley, some corn, roses, and the faintest whiff of a ghost of a hop leaf. Typical lager smell, a bit more floral and clean than others.

Flavor (3.25) : Malt, buttered corn, cereal grains, faint ripe banana, more corn. Some 2-D hop going on, not exactly palatable but it's there. This one isn't too bad, it's not real great either.

Mouthfeel (3) : Carbonated, crisp, very faintly smooth but not enough to classify as smooth. On par for the style.

Overall (3.06) : Hey, it's not all that bad. It's a bottom shelf beer, sure, but I've had way way way way worse. For $8 a 12 pack, or $4 a 6 pack...it's a cheap beer and great with beef sticks (which I opted for as a combo, instead of buying a bar beer at $2 a pop while I went to waste $10 at the vid lot machine. Seemed much more economical to spend $4 on a six pack.)
