Old Milwaukee Light - Pabst Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a glass mug, this brew's got a 2 finger thick soapy white head, no lacing, and a pale golden body.

I smell earthy, grassy grains. A decent malt characteristic shows up right at the end. No adjunct sweetness.

Ok, now for the taste. I'm picking up light malt tastes with a general light grain thing going on. You know, for an adjunct, this is pretty damned good!

Mouthfeel is clean as water. I mean, this brew is very refreshing *takes another hearty swig*

Overall a 4 for the underdog known as Old Milwaukee Light - Pabst Brewing Company. Wish I woulda known ya sooner, you will be missed...

Old Milwaukee Light brewed by Pabst Brewing Company with an ABV 3.88. This brew pours out a nice light amber color with a small white head. This is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell is nice with some grains and malt. The taste is light, but rich. There is a lot going on in this brew. For being a light brew it has a lot of flavor and body. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Old Milwaukee Light has a real nice balance it. The mouthfeel is nice, clean, and refreshing. Pabst Brewing Company did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.75 out 5.

Perfectly acceptable if you're looking to get drunk in mass quantity on a tight budget.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into an IPA glass because of reasons.

Look: An amorous golden body with quaint and timely rising bubbles. A perfectly white fizzy head fizzes out and disappears! No lacing, none. Perfectly mediocre.

Aroma: Metal, aluminum, titanium, steel.

Taste: Amazingly metallic! Watery.

Mouthfeel: Seltzer.

Overall: Incredibly bland, normal, perfectly average.
