look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance
Large fluffy white head. Decent retention. Some lacing. Clear, light golden body. Active carbonation.

Smell
Mild. Sweet malt. Light floral hops.

Taste
Stale corn and malt. Not as sweet as expected. Dry and stale.

Mouthfeel
Body is somewhere between light and medium. Dry stale finish lingers. Strong carbonation.

Overall
Maybe this beer was not stored properly or was abused somehow? I was expecting more. This beer is pretty smooth. The appearance and aroma are inviting. But it just doesn't taste that good.

Serving type: can

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....
