I love this beer when I am just hanging around friends and just having a good time. A lot of my friends, myself included, drink this beer because it tastes like home. (Well kinda, more psychological if anything) You see a lot of my friends parents and grandparents, as well as mine, worked at the both original breweries. We all live within a 10 minutes radius, and now that Pabst bought Oly, when I was in middle school I think, there are just 2 empty structures that used to proudly show the Olympia beer signs. I can only hope that one day the slogan "Its the water" can come to mean something again by using the Deschutes river water to brew the beer. You can see, the art used on the can and everything, that is the Tumwater Falls park, where the brewery sat right next too. Its just too bad that a big box office brewery bought out our lovely hometown brew. Anyway.
ABOUT THE BEER ITSELF:
Not much too it. Super light in every way; color, taste, smell. Doesn't hold its head for more than a minute. Like I said above, this beer is a beer to not worry about. Kinda like Bud Light, you dont drink it to tell everyone about the amazing qualities. You drink it because its refreshing and you can drink a lot of it and you can have a good time with the buds.

Appearance: Looks like a yellow lager beer.
Smell: Smells like a lager beer , which smells of grains. It does not have a foul smell like some lagers have.
taste: Taste of grains and malts with a lemony zest to it. then some bitterness at the end. This is a very drinkable beer. It is well rounded lager with no off putting taste. It is a summer time and lawnmower beer which is refreshing.
Mouthfeel; It has medium carbonation and it is not over done like some american adjunct lagers are.
Overall: Olympia beer is good beer for price , drank ability high , refreshing with lemon taste to it. which make it different then regular lagers on market.
