People are nuts. I have liked Miller beer, but this beer is unbelievably good. Try it for yourself and stop trying to say what you think is cool. Just be honest with yourself. This beer is GOOD!. And at 7% alcohol, you don't have to drink a bunch to get a nice buzz.

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, caramelized malts, some fruit and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel and fruit. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are others in the style that I would pick first.

Miller Fortune is the best economic equation of price vs. taste vs. ABV. It defies your natural expectations for a beer that has 6.9% alcohol by volume. It's ethanol taste is remarkably subtle, the liquid has a light crisp feel. It's light on spice and flavor, but it delivers what it promises which is a higher than mainstream ABV that is potable for the masses. I don't perceive it as insulting. Personally, It's one of my new guilty pleasure beers.

Someone left this in my fridge so I decided to give it a shot...kinda wish I didn't. Taste starts off with promise and then there's the nasty aftertaste that fills you full of booze and regret. Tastes like it was filtered through a hobo's sock.

This stuff was so bad it made me mad. All I could taste was the booze and some sweet maltiness but that almost just tasted like sugar. It tasted like barf and sugar combined. This was not good. I got it for free but next time I would even drink it for free... and that's saying something.
