Poured from a cab into a plastic cup. Pours golden straw yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells of corn and cereal grain, underwhelming. Tastes of watery grain, no hops of any sort. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a below average beer.

L- Just to as close to water as possible. Lots of carbonation, one-finger bubbly white head.
S- Sweet grain smell.
T- Suprisingly good. I will drink Old Style especially at Wrigley. It does have some good grain and malt taste, especially for a light. Way better than Bud, Coors and others.
F- Crisp, light and refreshing like it is supposed to be.
O- As good as macro gets. I will drink this, Pabst and Moosehead.

Old Style Light | Pabst Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a pint glass, this brew's head is two fingers thick, with spotty lacing, and a rather pale light golden clear body.

Smells like corn with a touch of other full-bodied grains.

Lighter on the corm/malt than others, but still enjoyable nonetheless. At least it actually has a flavor to it.

The mouthfeel is medium-light with mild carbonation.

I'll give Old Style Light an overall rating with a solid 4. I could chill on these on a nice hot day.

Old Style Light brewed by Pabst Brewing Company, with an ABV of 3.80% This brew pours out a golden amber color with a small white head. There is a nice amount of carbonation to this light brew. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass nice. The smell of Old Style Light is rich with grains and malts. Lots of corn and other malts in the smell. You pick up a hint of hops in the smell of this brew. This light brew has the look and smell of most light brews on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, light and crisp with grains and malts. For the style this brew is pretty decent. Not the best but it is smooth. I like how smooth this brew goes down. There is nothing overpowering about this light brew, Old Style Light has an decent balance to it. The mouth feel of Old Style Light is Light, crisp, clean, smooth,and refreshing. Overall I'm giving Old Style Light a 4.25 out of 5. Not a bad drinking brew, it would go down good on a hot summer day. I would buy this brew again. Pabst Brewing Company, did a nice job with this light brew.

Painfully average, but heavier a light beer than I expected. I thoroughly enjoy Old Style, despite a lot of the divided and often negative opinions it merits (my father cites it and Miller High Life as the two worst beers he has ever had), and this light alternative is almost the same in terms of matching how filling its brother beer is. Other than that, it brings a middling taste to the table, but after Miller 64, everything seems so exquisite in flavor.

Left the night shift early to hit the casino with a coworker. He had a case of Old Style Light in his backseat. We shotgunned a few of them in the parking lot each. I then walked in like I owned the place, put $100 down on red, and lost. After we each lost a little more money, we laughed about the whole thing over some more Old Style Lights and an illegal cigarette.

Overall: Old Style Light isn't Weihenstephaner Original, but it's now the traditional casino beer.

I have maintained the original is not absolutely terrible. But with the lightening of the beer somehow the corn adjunct is more painful, and the grains are now more noticeable in the taste. But for a light macro, this strangely does have a decent malt present while being fizzy and watery. Pass on this
