Drank straight out of the can. FIRST REVIEW!!!

A: I've poured it before and the beer is very piss yellow with a decent short lasting head.

S: My beer smell abilities are not great but to me this smells like opening a can of sweet corn and taking a big whiff.

T: The first thing I taste is the familiar macro brew corn taste with a hint club soda. The middle of the taste has a bit of caramel and hops but it's very low key. The beer finishes with a clean trip back to the club soda and corn flavors.

M: Very clean and crisp. Perfect for humid summer nights and consumed in mass quantities.

D: This beer is one of my go-to lazy night on the couch beers. It's no craft beer and is priced as such, but it is great at giving you what you expect to get in a light, cheap macro brew. It goes down easy and leaves little to no after taste. I do prefer a nice craft beer but when the funds are low and the mouth just wants old fashioned dad-type lawnmowing beer, Old Mud will do the trick!

Serving type: can

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.
