Old Milwaukee

Old Milwaukee was first released in 1955 by the Jos. Schlitz Brewing Company.  It ended up sold to Stroh's and is now owned by Pabst Brewing.

The beer pours a light golden color, with a tall white head of foam. The aroma has a light smell of grain with a hint of straw.  The taste follows the path of the aromas directly. It drinks crisp and refreshing.  Is it a German lager?  No.  But it has more flavor than the bigger boy macros like Bud, Coors or Miller.  It is a classic American macro lager, in the best sense of that.  Look down on them if you want, but Old Milwaukee is good cheap beer.  Oh the amount of Old Milwaukee returnables we used to drink in Minneapolis back in the day!
