Thought I would give this a try bscause I like PBR, big mistake this stuff is undrinkable I couldnt even make one bottle. Those saying this beer has no off flavors, I am not sure what they didnt taste bc this beer tastes like stale moldy corn and urine it is one of the most unpleasant beers I have ever tasted.

Served on-tap in a large mug a local bar the other night. The appearance was watery and thin. Very sparse carbonation, and almost no head at all. Any scents were minimal, and very much alike any other macro lager. The taste was bland and crappy. Not much to really brag about. It did lack a bready aftertaste that I notice in most american macro lagers, which might have been its only upside in the taste department. The mouthfeel was thin, watery, and entirely too flat. Drinkability is okay, just not very desired. I suppose for the price, this beer does the trick, but its difficult to find many ways to compliment this one.

I was back in Chicago last week. A friend brought over and left some Old Style bottles in the fridge. Thought it would be as good of a time as ever to maybe review this brew, as I was never planning on paying for one any time soon. Having lived in the city for four years in the past, I was well familiar with Old Style.
Always dreaded showing up to parties and finding out that the keg was Old Style that night, and I would cringe whenever a buddy would come back from a beer run with this stuff.

Pours a fair amount of foam that quickly fades away. Some grain and miscellaneous smells on the nose. Nothing much. Taste is even more lacking. Compared to other cheap beers of this style, Old Style does have some distinctive qualities to it, but not in a good way (cant quite put my finger on exactly what it is). Back in college I drank my fair share of "cheap" American "macro" beers, and many were much more drinkable than this. I would pick just about anything over this.
