Not bad brew very similar to PBR but not as good....still rather have an ice cold Old Mil than a Budweiser or Coors any day....Old Mil has decent hops for a cheap beer and it is excellent for mixing with stouts and porters to make cheap amber lagers. For $6.99 a 12 pack it is hard to beat and much better than it's main competitor on the shelf Milwaukee's Best. This beer actually won some awards back in the day so give it a break and evaluate it for what it is.... a cheap American Style beer....

Comparable to pbr, I don't know why theres so much hate for this beer. Its a good alternative to bud light, highlife, nat light, or keystone.

Its not going to challenge or excite your tongue. But it dosn't bother mine at all. I think pbr is better but this one is better that high life in my opinion.

look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: pours a thick white head which recedes quickly. Light lacing. Pale straw color with much streaming carbonation.
Aroma: corn husks, lightly toasted barley, not much else
Mouthfeel: light and watery, a little papery. Finish is quite dry.
Flavor: white bread, corn sweetness, maybe a hint of hop bite.
Overall: ok, especially at the bargain price, but nothing to get excited about.
