2.93/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium golden body, with an off white, coarse head which fades rapidly., despite blizzards of carbonation. The lacing is thin and scattered.

Aroma: Lots of cooked cereal and cooked vegetables, a slight mineral note and faint hops.

Taste: Very restrained malt notes and faint hops vie with mineral water notes. As the taste progresses, the impression of mineral water is strengthened. Finishes clean with a faint herbal hop flavor.

Mouth feel: Thin and seltzer-like.

Drinkability/notes: Not as bad as one might think. It would surely be refreshing on a hot summer day. Old Milwaukee Light is a quintessential "lawnmower" beer. Its surely not craft beer, but no one ever said it was. For what it is, its not bad.

Presentation: Packaged in a sixteen fluid ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: can

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.

Nothing like a can of fresh toilet water to make your day shine but to be serious I have had many great times hanging with friends while drinking this beer so out of respect for old mil light and all the great times and memories I have been given I wanted to give this beer a good review.
