2.6/5  rDev +15.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

This to me is like a lighter, thinner, less full-bodied and flavourful version of Miller High Life, which makes sense. It is overall very similar but soon becomes a tad more bland and minerally.

It is gold, essentially the same colour as High Life, with a similar medium white head that slowly dissipates to a thin, wispy top, but the head is slightly weaker than High Life's and it leaves weaker lace - some, but almost none.

The aroma is again similar to High Life - fairly strong, perfumy, corn and grain dominated basic US lager with a faint meaty quality. It's not bad but perhaps a tad more rough to me.

The taste is also similar to High Life, but here the differences are a little more marked. It has a strong corn-grain quality and seams at first cleanr and more crisp but also more bland and lacking the lasting perfumy-grain quality of High Life. It also seems thinner, a ltitle more watery, with less of a winey character and it lacks the apple that I notice in High Life. It soon develops a noticeable mineral-water quality and becomes more bland with only weak grain aftertaste. It's close to High Life but not quite as good, yet it's a lot better than Coors and a number of others.

Miller Genuine Draft from Miller Brewing Co. Ya. That's right. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's got a typically waning head, clear golden body, and no lacing. It could be worse. We all know this.

I smell corn. Period.

I taste corn and grains. Not terrible. I think this brew is pretty decent-tasting. Sue me.

Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp.

Overall a 3 is given to Miller Genuine Draft from Miller Brewing Co. I am not biased to drink and review AAL's. I thank nicholas2121 for supplying this brew to me during a meeting concerning this website and its workings.

Miller Genuine Draft brewed by Miller Brewing Co. with an an abv of of 4.7% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a small white head. The smell you pick up on grains and corn. The look and smell is that of an American Adjunct Lager. There is nothing special about this brew so far. The taste is ok you pick up on the corn in this brew, but it is not bad. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. There is nothing bad about this brew.Miller Genuine Draft goes down smooth with a clean finish. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3.25 out of 5. This is not the worst I've had but not the best. I would get this brew again.
