$5 pitcher at Harry's in West Lafayette.

This is the Cubs' beer, so as a Reds fan, it's everything I despise. That being said, if you're looking for an adjunct lager to drink, it's not bad. Appearance is typical AAL....light golden, little head retention, and little lacing. Smell is all rice and other adjunct grains. Taste is pretty smooth, light, and all adjuncts. Nothing terrific here as far as cheap, shitty beers go, but better than Coors or Miller.

16 oz. can poured into pint glass.

This one is a midwest classic!

A: Clear yellow liquid and a thick, white head. Plenty of carbonation.

S: Honestly hard to get much of a smell out of it. A bit of grain and cereal.

T: Taste is thankfully better. Not offensive at all. Some cereal, grain husks, little bit of hop bite and some malts. When I'm drinking AALs, I'm looking for beers that are not offensive rather than groundbreaking, amazing taste. Many macros are just horrible, so the further away from horrible, the better.

M: Mouthfeel is actually thicker than you'd think.

O: There's something about this beer that makes it better than many other macros. Maybe it's the mouthfeel? Maybe it's the pleasant taste?

Go into any small town pub and you'll find Old Style in every one. A classic to have while chilling out and watching a football game or while at the ball park enjoying a hot dog.

One of the better macros out there.
