Old Style Light an off-shoot of a Chicago favorite. Sitting at the Cubs game downing some OSL and it tastes F'ing fantastic....but who are we kidding? As a beer....not so much...mix in the nostalgia of Wrigley...golden. This beer is like anyother American macro light beer. Its great during the situations that call for an all-american beer!

Wrigley 16 oz can poured into clear plastic cup. I'm giving it 4.5 because it's light, but it's still G.H.'s Old Style. Looked, smelled, and tasted like Old Style. Which means it looked like, smelled like, and tasted like an adjunct lager. Little less carbonation than the original, which in turn probably translates into less calories and carbohydrates than the Original. Still, very good on a Spring day at the "Friendly Confines"!

Heileman’s Old Style Light beer has a thick, stark-white head, a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of faint, sweet, indistinguishable grains, and the flavor is the same, with a hint of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Heileman’s Old Style Light finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. It’s an excellent light beer.

Served in a plastic cup at Wrigley Field.

When seeing a Cubs game, there should be no other beers allowed than Old Style and Old Style Light (unless you want something that has flavor...). Get some. It pours a clear jaundice topped by a barely-alive half-finger of white foam. The nose comprises light flowers, grass, a vague sense of mild citrus, and what may or may not be wheat. The taste holds notes of mild wheat, milder hops(yeah, it tastes as vague as it sounds), lemon zest, and hard water. The body is rather light, with a mildly fizzy carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, there really ain't much difference between normal Old Style and this light counterpart. I guess that's what they were going for, though, right...?
