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. I dont' know why, but in my area of the Midwest, this beer was always called "Old Mud" when I was younger.
The beer pours a very pale yellow golden, utterly sun
bleached straw. There is a very tall head of white, fluffy head. The aroma is
light grain, light tangy fruit, mostly apple, and just a hint of grassy straw. The taste follows
the aromas, light bready sweetness, turning mostly dry, with just a hint of
bitterness. The beer drinks crisp and refreshing, with just a touch of
smoothness. Not bad for its genre, but regular Old Milwaukee is better than the light. This beer is best straight from the can. It is a decent light compared to a lot of the macros.
