Review: Maybe it is because I grew up in Wisconsin, home of the world’s largest Old Style six-pack, but I have an affinity toward cheap pale beer. Maybe it is simply because it is cheap.
At any given time last summer, you would always find one of two things in my refrigerator… Old Style or PBR. It makes sense since Old Style (dubbed “Wild Style” by my friends and I) and PBR have a long, intertwined and incestuous relationship.
When you get right down to it, PBR and Old Style don’t taste that different. I have a preference for PBR because it doesn’t taste quite as flat as Old Style tends to. Really though, this is like comparing apples and other apples.
Old style is a simple pale lager that is a perfect forehead-crushing, slow-sloshing, thirst-quenching beverage to cook with, get tanked with or just sip. And at $4.69 for 96oz., it is a perfect solution to a scorching afternoon in a bookstore with no air conditioning and an average inside temperature of 86 F. It’s no gourmet beer, but you could do much much worse.
Note: Unfortunately, the large Old Style sixer in LaCrosse Wisconsin is no longer there. It now is a LaCrosse Lager sixer. At least us Wisconsinites can agree on one thing: Beer is worth building a monument to.
Rating: 3.75 / 5

PBR and Old Style not that different? What state you from, boy?
PBR tastes, if anything, like Old Style minus half the flavor. Pabst is much lighter and sweeter tasting, whereas Old Style is a full flavored lager that is honestly the best beer for your money when compared with ANYTHING. Sure, sure, Guinness and St Pauli girl and all that crap might taste “better”, but when it comes to good, tasty, cost-efficient BEER, nothign beats the Style

I would have to agree with J, Old Style has great taste when it comes to in-x-pensive beer. I just tried it last week and I can’t stop buying it. Old Style has a smooth “creamy” taste that sits well, with out after burn. Man… Old Style Rocks for your money when buying cheap beer…

Old Style is great beer and remember the price factor . I drive almost 50 miles to get mine . It does have great taste not the sweet aftertaste of PBR . It even is better if you can get in on tap .
