High life light is not as good as straight high life. It is a typical light lager american style beer. The color is yellow/gold clear with big carbonation and head to start and then fades to nothing. The smell and taste are common to theis style....grain/barley/wheat and some hops. The mouthfeel is what it is....beer that has a lighter abv and taste. Overall its great for hot days.

Appearance- Extremely fizzy with loads of carbonation to spare. The white head builds quickly to two fingers and actually has great retention. I was surprised. Not even that, there is a lot of puffy lace as it does die down. That is the only surprise sitting on top of the adjunct straw body.

Smell- There is some sweet malt in here to go along with the hops. Also that wonderful adjunct flavor. It makes it a little off putting but not overwhelmingly bad.

Taste- There is just a little bit bread malt, maybe just the brewing yeast though. Slightly bitter adjunct hops, and brewing water. That is it, really thankful the adjunct flavor was not noticeable.

Mouth feel- For being so light and watery, the bubbles almost make it too much. Not smooth or creamy at all.

Overall- For an adjunct, it really was not that terrible, but who are we kidding, it is still an adjunct. I would never have it again.

What can I say. This is a twist on an old school beer and it tastes...well...old school. I often drink lite beers when not enjoying craft brews but I would certinaly choose plain-old miller lite above this blend. A Little too much skunky taste to be the champagne of beers for me. Perhaps I got a bad six-pack.

12 oz silver can poured into an pilsner glass.

A - Water thinks they beer is pale. Clear straw yellow with an effervescent white head. Lower retention but there sure is a lot of lace!

S - Adjunct-filled aroma consisting of corn and straw notes with a faintly tinny finish. Bland and uninviting aroma.

T - Faint pale malt hides behind dry straw and husky corn. An adjunct to the max, this one is very light in flavor.

M - Crisp and clean with a biting carbonation finish and slightly refreshing quality, like that of water.

O - I can personally attest to the drinkability of this one. Friends and I used to put it down by the case for $1 while playing darts downtown a few years back. Shameful, but it's got it's place I suppose. The question is though, with 110 calories in this light beer, why even drink it?

Poured a nice golden color with thick head that thins to a lace. Can't see much carbonation here. Standard adjunct corn aromas.
As I was expecting lots of adjunct flavor and there was very little of lit, I'm kinda impressed by the taste. Goes down pretty smooth, probably because of the lack of carbonation and it's a light beer, although there is a little dryness to it.

Overall I'm pretty impressed. Taste is better than expected (for a light adjunct beer). This might be the best light beer I've had.

High Life Original is my go to macro beer...why this travesty exists is beyond me. Pours a watery yellow with minimal head and not much character. Smells of pure grain and astringency. Flavor is really non existent with an off putting malt flavor and skunkiness making up the majority of the profile. Mouthfeel is very thin and the carbonation makes it seem even thinner. My least favorite of all light beers.
