After such a gobsmackingly brilliant drop like Weihenstephaner Vitus I come to a brew that averages D+ in BA score; Miller Genuine Draft. My first question is "As opposed to Miller Non-Genuine Draft?", which is soon followed by "why am I reviewing this?"... the answer to which apart from it being really cheap is fairly straightforward - I've reviewed enough nice beers so it's time to review some nasty ones (yay...).
Poured from a 330ml bottle into a 500ml Pokal.
A: Body presents as a clear filtered p*** yellow (same colour out as in perhaps?), with a light foamy white head that soon settles to lacing around the inside of the glass.
S: Smells like hay and non-roasted barley. No hop depth to be found. There is a slight muskiness overriding everything and it does not bode well.
T: Tastes like a beer shandy with some grains thrown into the mix. Crisp with a light dry aftertaste. Really wish I hadn't bought a six-pack, but I guess I can save them for when mates come over (separate from my tasty Pale Ale's). Fairly barren and grainy, not as bad as some of the classic Aussie macro's (VB, MB, Toohey's, or Carlton Cold), however this is merely due to the dilution of those ugly macro Lager flavours that run rampant in Aussie Lagers.
M: Like a glass of lemonade or cola - too much fizz and far too watery.
D: If it was very hot outside and the beer was kept very cold (and you weren't paying for it) I could see a reason to drink this; it's cooling and thirst-quenching in an "I don't want to challenge the drinkers taste buds" kinda way... but life is too short in my opinion, we may only have a limited amount of beer we can drink in our lifetime so why even waste a second on beers without flavour?
Food match: Anything really, you won't taste the beer anyhow so go nuts... chilli, pastrami, wasabi fries with a side of hot English mustard... yeah no, forget the last one.

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.
