I was given an Old Milwaukee Light at a get together when nothing else was available. This beer is pale in color, no foamy head, skunky and green both in taste and aroma. I don't think I got a bad can, I think this beer just flat out sucks. Who drinks this shit? This was so bad it gave me a headache. Cheaply made, by far the worst beer I have ever drank in my life.

Metallic. This beer actually has a cold metal taste to it. Very water and highly carbonated. Not a good beer at all.

Tastes like regular Old Milwaukee after some ice cubes melted in it. Very clear color, absent of any hops that I could detect. I don't think they use any barley either. It is drinkable, but so is anti-freeze.

I went into this review not expecting much. Guess what I got in return... not much. A yellowish color under some fizzy river suds. Smells and taste like a hybrid between rice, corn and garbage water. Watery but fizzy body. Maybe someday I will find a light lager that does not give me bad dreams.
