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!!!

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!
