My Guess is that "Fortune" is Miller's attempt to compete against AB's "Black Crown",and Honestly, I Myself Like Both of them a LOT,but while Black Crown seems to have more of a striaght up Euro Lager taste profile,Miller's Fortune reminds me more of a Malt Liquor,which is not a dig @ it whatsoever,Because I LOVE My malt liquors and enjoy them quite often~
Fortune also packs a pretty good punch @ 6.9 ABV,which more than likley will make it a big hit with the Party Crowd,This is a Beer you had better respect though,because it will Hammer your ass into the dirt before you know it, if you are not used to drinking "Malt liquors or Strong & extra Strong Beers" you may want to use some common sense with this Beer,it is pretty smooth and easy drinking also,and I Myself do not get that 6.9 percent @ All,I do not pick up any alcohol Burn,or any Boozy notes either,and if you are used to slammin back light Beer all night,and try it with this one? you may wake up in a shrubbery,and a lampshade on yer head,lol~
anyway,I think Miller did a GR8 Job with this Beer,and while I Myself really enjoy it's overall Flavor and Taste quite a Bit,I just do not know if it will take off to become the Huge Seller Miller is Banking on..it may be a bit too Obscure for mass consumption,too pricey for the College Kids who will more than likley stick with the $10.99 30 packs or cheaper malt liquors like Mickey's and Steel reserve,and perhaps a bit too bold for the average Beer drinker ..I Guess only time will tell eh? cheers and Peace2all:)

3.25/5  rDev +28%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Nice clear copper/amber shade. Decent head that disappears very quickly. Moderate lacing and carbonation.

Smell: Malt and a hint of floral hops.

Taste: Sweet malts, grain, and a touch of hops.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a slight hop bitterness at the end.

The Verdict: Not bad. There’s no doubting that it’s a macrobrew, but it’s a drinkable one. The bourbon flavor it supposedly carries evades my taste buds, though.

Let's all face the facts. We wouldn't have bought, and tried this beer if it didn't have 6.9% It's an aweful beer, don't try to pull out flavors. I like the one comment about all the corn - that's funny - because that's what it is. I mean, compared to all macros, it fits the bill. And with the 1.9% higher abv than most macros, it's okay for the masses. It's basically marketed to the "club" crowd in their early twenties. It's marketed as "classy" and has a higher abv that bars can charge 7-8 bucks a pint. All the while guys with way too much cologne and hair gel think they're drinking something great in their futile attempt of bringing home a girl drinking pina coladas. Yeah, you know it :) I had to try it - because I pretty much drink every beer. But just another Platinum rip-off. Blah
