For $9 a 12 pack, this is an unbeatable bang for the buck. As I said in my review for Coors Edge, if you're expecting something out of this world, don't look here. But if you want a refreshing, inoffensive NA beer experience, Old Mil Non Alc is a must try. I used to drink the OG alcoholic stuff, and this is MUCH more palatable.

Rating skewed because this is pizza to wash down beer and potato chips, not to savor and analyze. Also skews high because many of its small set of NA peers (cheap domestic, not craft) have weird aftertastes and/or just dont taste like beer. It hits the spot when its called for!

When you have to go to that place this NA is very comforting. The lack of flatness is what grabbed me. Did some researching and learned the big houses basicly boiled there alcohol out and recarbonated the beer. Old Mil spins theirs in a centrifuge to a thin layer, and flash heats it. No need to recarbonate it and the flavor (I always liked) does not suffer. I just can't find it when I need too anymore. Becks NA comes next.

Have to have 1 or 2 nites per week no alcohol so I have these fake beers often. German, American, Canadian doesnt matter. All taste like crap but this one doesn’t have the tell tale after taste I am used to. Nice carbonation and not a malt bomb so is drinkable.

I loved it. For a non alcoholic beer it tasted just like a real beer. No malt or bad aftertaste at all. I absolutely love it and will start drinking this all the time.

Tried 3 ways. Standard pour into a standard pint glass (followed by same poured into Sam Adams IPA glass trying to capture more aroma though the former is obviously the most common serving method) and also from the can.

Pours a crystal clear yellow gold color with moderate large bubble carbonation. Initial frothy head reduces quickly to poor lacing and little rim retention. Adhesion on the glass is poor.

Smells of wet grass, hay, corn, corn syrup, and that paste you ate back in Kindergarten (although you won't admit it). Very poor though in carrying with the malt liquor and adjunct lager corn based beer category.

All three palette notes are the same--- lots of paste, envelope glue, candy corn, corn syrup, stale uncooked rice, and a bit of wet hay. Very poor if only average at best again considering the category.

Syrup like mouthfeel with not so clean finish. Lingering corn, paste, and a bit of skunk cabbage that I honestly wish was more. At least it would be less bland and less like I just revisited my love of paste during art class/non-savory snack time.

Poor if not below average at best overall. Not recommended. So many other good NAs out there... maybe if you want to drink a piece of history... as well as feel like you are... but beyond that checkbox move along young man/lady to something better. The original version is not much better... in fact it might be worse. So yeah. Move along after checking the box oh so regrettably.

The color and feel of a straw colored seroma, pleasantly metallic tasting notes with a clean, wispy finish. It’s a sentimental favorite—the groomsmen and I will always have Carmel and Old Milwaukee.

Rating it for what it is: a non-alcoholic, that is, fake, beer. If I want something in the garage fridge to help convince my wife why I smell strongly of beer, this is a good bet.

Comparing only NA beers, BUD Light and Miller Lite, not my favorite Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.:
[b]Only available in cans in my area.[/b] This poured with a very light straw yellow color
It produced a three finger head and still had a full head an hour later.
The aroma was definitely that of a decent beer!
The taste was that of a very light, but fairly full bodied light beer with no burnt or overtly sweet aftertastes.
I was not expecting much because Old Milwaukee has been in and out of production, but for a non alcoholic beer, this is one American NA beer I would serve to my guests along with Clausthaler and Becks, the best of the bunch!!

If you absolutely crave one of the worst beers in the world without the silver lining of at least catching a buzz "It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This". Falls flat on it's ass in every single category. I'd rather drink a Barq's root beer than this. At least Barq's doesn't make your stomach turn with every gulp.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium straw yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy bright white head that reduces to a large patch of medium thick film surrounded by a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of corn adjuncts over lighter aromas of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of grainy malts with light to moderate flavors of corn adjuncts, slightly vegetal. Minimal amounts of sweetness or hop presence. Overall the beer has a very light flavor more reminiscent of mineral water than a beer.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Very drinkable and definitely lacks the chemical-like flavor that you get in a lot of the American NA lagers. Very light flavor and aroma.
