Bought this one at the local wally world thinking, how bad can a Miller craft beer be? Ah, pretty bad. I won’t waste much time on this as others have said pretty much the same thing I would. Very disappointing “foray” into craft; I believe this is just marketing hype and agree that it’s competition with the similar lackluster Bud Platinum. Very mediocre appearance, substandard nose (adjunct grains), acerbic, un-redeeming flavor, and OK mouth. Overall: There are so many good and even mediocre alternatives available even at your local Wal-Mart. Do not bother with this over-marketed swill.

Picked this up because Butler's (Riverside Liquors in Frederick) was clearing a bunch out for $3.99 a six. I mean, how bad could it be at 7% for that cost. Well, not much to look at. For a, albeit slightly, bigger beer there was nothing to the appearance, maybe a little more color than a typical Miller beer. Smell, well, pretty much the same, a little better than typical Miller. However, it was not bad. Reasonably tasty and easy to drink, a little better than Miller High Life which is not horrible. Plus, at almost 7% it gets a little bonus overall, especially if you can get if for 4 buck a six. I will be stopping back by to stock up on this, it is drinkable and I can fill the fridge with it for guests who do not like beer snob stuff, and if I have to end up drinking it, or if I am having a quantity day, giddy up.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

This beer does not remind me of any mainstream beer. The closest I can think of is Carlsberg Elephant. If Miller would only add some more hops this beer could be a 5.0 instead of 4.5 as it is a big malty brew with a good mouth feel but without the requisite hop nose and bittering hop level to balance it. I would call it's style as Maibock if I were to give it an international style description. Miller please rethink the inadequate hop level on this beer and add an adequate hop level and you will sell more. I would still be more inclined to drink this than any of the other American Pilsner lager beers available.

Hefty feel to the bottle, pours amber in color and above average in appearance. Aroma is corn/vegetal and in line with other macro brew. Taste is also similar to macro. Its a little more malty, given the higher abv, but most of the sweetness is from corn. Underwhelming taste with minimal hop presence. Mouthfeel is ok, and overall this is slightly below average for style. $7.49 for a sixer with 6.9% abv - I mean, I'll probably get it again but its definitely more about the buzz than the flavor with this one.
