look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Amber colour, nothing special. Aroma has a slighty sweet corn smell. Tastes like a typical amber lager. Not bad, but has no hint of hops. High APV for a inexpensive price.

Has a nice golden color to it, usual cheap grain/corn smell, but on the taste it's a rich corn and malt with a creamy mouthfeel to it, much like a good cream ale, very very good considering it's from miller, will buy again.

Pretty good. Best of the Miller Beers I've had. Higher ABV and for a lower price than many others

I purchased a can of Miller Fortune in El Monte, CA/USA for $2.29 USD.
Appearance: The appearance of Miller Fortune had a fizzy bunch of bubbles amidst a yellow puddle of beer within the can.
Colour: Miller Fortune had a vague yellow appearance.
Smell: Miller Fortune had an aroma that resembled the scent of rotten corn.
Taste: Miller Fortune had a vague taste of malts, stale/sweet corn, metal, and grain.
Mouthfeel: Miller Fortune had a light feeling of mellow but kind carbonation. Later, Miller Fortune lost its carbonation. Mellow Fortune had a slight weight within the mouth which would remind a person that time was going too fast because the beer is losing carbonation. One positive point is that Miller Fortune has decent alcohol content.
Overall: People who enjoy the aroma of rotten corn and stale malt will derive amusement from Miller Fortune. People who like a beer that reminds them of grain mixed with light metal will enjoy Miller Fortune.

2.68/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Poured a deeper Amber than most AAL offerings, which was refreshing from Miller. Nice and clear.
Color: Deeper amber, similar to that of a Vienna lager.
Smell: Hints of chocolate and caramel malts, very little hop character.
Taste: High malt character with far less cereal/biscuit tastes. Got the feeling this beer could not decide what it wanted to be. Definitely alcohol-forward, but not harsh.
Mouthfeel: Too much carbonation for my on taste, but this had much more gravity - taste settled and stayed on the palette for an extended period of time.
Overall: Not a bad addition to the Miller lineup. It is not pretending to be anything else besides a step up from High Life, MGD, etc. I would drink it again, but it is not exactly a go-to.

Blah all over. Only thing enjoyable was that it was a higher ABV than miller light.

Pretty good, I found it the best of the Miller Beers I've had. Higher ABV got me buzzed after a few.

Good beer for Miller to do. Dark and high alc. content makes for a decent beer.

It's to me a poor man's flashy beer. I'll give it to miller on trying to venture out of light beers but they need alot more testing. The flavor goes from a dark lager to a burnt chocolate and hops, it to much going on and throws flavor way off and way to much carbonation . Packaging is cool though.

Not good. If you want a mainstream moderately darker beer, pick something else.

Best Miller product IMHO but then again, they have a low bar to begin with. If you can't find anything else, this is not too bad.

There is no way to try and mask this beers intended market! This beer was made for people who like strong inexpensive beers. I happen to like all beers and depending on the mood I might want a cheap strong beer. That being said this beer is not expensive, so I will treat and rate it as so. Like other strong beers in its category, Malt liquors, High Gravity lagers, Ice beers... this beer is a cut above the rest. This kind of reminds me of a cross between Olde English and Leffe Blonde, of course it’s made at 1/4 the budget of Leffe Blonde so please don't bash it. If you want a better tasting strong beer/ale then go for something like a Leffe Blonde. If you want a six pack of strong beer for the price of two Leffe Blonde's than look no further! Miller Fortune will do the trick.

Kind of bias due to my dislike of reds and Miller, but a passable beer for sure
