Old Milwaukee Light brewed by Pabst Brewing Company with an ABV 3.88. This brew pours out a nice light amber color with a small white head. This is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell is nice with some grains and malt. The taste is light, but rich. There is a lot going on in this brew. For being a light brew it has a lot of flavor and body. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Old Milwaukee Light has a real nice balance it. The mouthfeel is nice, clean, and refreshing. Pabst Brewing Company did a nice job with this one. I would buy this brew again. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.75 out 5.

Perfectly acceptable if you're looking to get drunk in mass quantity on a tight budget.

Poured into an IPA glass because of reasons.

Look: An amorous golden body with quaint and timely rising bubbles. A perfectly white fizzy head fizzes out and disappears! No lacing, none. Perfectly mediocre.

Aroma: Metal, aluminum, titanium, steel.

Taste: Amazingly metallic! Watery.

Mouthfeel: Seltzer.

Overall: Incredibly bland, normal, perfectly average.
