1.25/5 rDev -43.4%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5
Poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very clear light yellow color. Fizzy white head struggled to hang around, but ultimately failed.
S: Dry, crisp scent of pale malt and corn. Also present is something quite unpleasant that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Perhaps the smell brought out a lot of repressed memories from my college days, but it wasn't good.
T: Very shallow taste. I picked up some harsh graininess and perhaps a smattering of hop flavor, but I really struggled to taste anything.
M: Very thin with a lot of carbonation. The beer was there for a second or two, and then it was washed away. It's almost like it doesn't want me to know it was there.
D: I suppose it goes down easy enough, and one could drink this all night, provided you can stand the taste...
...Unfortunately, this is not one that I enjoyed. The tiny smidgen of smell and taste present are not very pleasant. This beer borders on foul, but the word that consistently comes to mind is "shallow." Not quite at the bottom of my list, but pretty damn close.

This beer is my go to summer beer when I am not drinking craft.
It blows bud, miller, and pabst out of the water. I know that's not a ringing endorsement but, it needs to be noted.
This is a solid tasting and enjoyable beer. I prefer mine on the beach or in front of the grill.
Grab a 30 pack cans, put your snooty nose away and enjoy a few beers your dad had and wonder why this has not been in your rotation before.

3.33/5 rDev +50.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: (From can poured into a pint glass): Golden with moderate carbonation bubbles, white head.
Smell: Grainy, Malty
Taste: People may disagree with me, but I have to say that out of all of the cheap priced beers, Miller High Life Light is my favorite. I will go even further than that and say that I prefer this over Coors Light, and I like it as much as Bud Light. There's just a smooth taste here that doesn't leave me with a bitter aftertaste in my mouth like so many other cheap light beers. A fairly tasty beer with perfect grain and malt mixtures; crispy finish. I guess what I appreciate the most is that this beer is definitely no skunk like so many other cheap beers.
NOTE: for those who slagged Miller High Life Light in the review section, here's a trick: Try a can or bottle of this after it has been in a cooler full of ice cubes for a while until the cans/bottles are ice cold. Even better, pour into a frosty mug that's been in the freezer.
Mouthfeel: Mild and bubbly; the "Champagne of Beers" designation on the side may be overdoing things just a tad (that is on the non-lights as well, although truthfully there are a lot of better beers than this one, albeit much higher priced), but really the analogy is accurate in terms of mouthfeel because it is a pleasant swig.
Overall: Hey, everyone has their opinions; but for my budget being what it is; and my propensity to gain weight if I'm not careful (among regular beers, without worries to price or calorie content, Miller High Life/Miller High Life Light would rank very far down my list), Miller High Life Light cannot be beat. Easily a 3.25 overall, maybe even higher.
