Very light straw appearance. Crystal clear. Thin, white head. Shows very good carbonation. Bready aroma with some grassy hops. Mild taste with a little bitterness from the hops. Watery mouthfeel. Semi-dry finish. Smooth. Refreshing. Overall, a decent beer. Nothing special about it, but at the same time there is nothing off-putting about it either. Enjoyable. Good one for hot weather.

I was raised on the Southside of Chicago. In high school, in the 80s, this was THE brew. I didn't know any better and I loved it. Nothing tastier on a hot summer day than one of those ice cold little round bottles. Dare to dream. Now I'm old and can afford better beer and I buy better beer. Every now and then I have an Old Style and I'm young and stupid again.

2.50 pints at the bar and washes down the burger good. It serves a purpose.

Just awful. For me, it was easily the very worst of the ultra low-end beers.

Smells like overly sweet corn and has a very sugary and unbalanced aftertaste. The mouthfeel us the best thing it has.

The look of the beer is pretty good for the style(no pun intended). The main reason I enjoy this beer is the location and circumstance under which I am drinking it. It is almost always in Chicago at Wrigley Field. How could you not enjoy almost any beer on a nice day at Wrigley? So, yeah, the beer isn't that great, but the beer and the experience together take it up a couple notches!

It's Old Style. When you are in Chicago and you want the local version of Bud, they got you covered.

It is no better or worse than you will expect.
