look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz can, no freshness date. I love the boasting on the can; 1999 GABF Gold medal winner … America’s Best Tasting Light Beer.

Appearance: Translucent very pale yellow, perfect clarity with a minimal yet sticky lace on top.

Smell: Very clean nose with hints of grain and a smidgen of hops.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Super smooth with a spot on crispness, watery malt and cereal grain flavour. Very little hops at all, just a small amount of bitterness and not flavour. Very clean on the palate with little to no off flavours … I could not detect any. Clean and dry.

Notes: This is what a light beer is supposed to be, If I was a light beer drinker this is the one I would go for time and time again.

Serving type: can

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.

Old Milwaukee Light... A very long time ago, the Stroh Brewery used to own Old Milwaukee... When Stroh chose to compete with the Bud and Miller breweries, they chose to make Stroh's a Premium style lager.. and put it in Funky Blue cans to symbolize the upgrade to sudsy royalty.. Bad plan. Bad Beer.. Great company basically gone.. sigh.. Well for the old formula.. from my taste-bud perspective, OM took on the Golden Canned Brew's persona.. And I still love this light lager.. To me, this is the real Stroh Beer!! God Bless Bernhard Stroh.. my hero and great-great-Great Uncle.. (well.. maybe not..).. but OM is the Stroh I used to drink in the last century..
Amen to Beer!!!
Carry On Citizens!!!
