This is my "cheap go to" beer. Nothing outstanding, but the taste is just fine. Much better than Bud products. Those tend to give me a headache after a single beer. Miller isn't something you drink just one of and feel satiated, but you drink a handful to get the end result.

When you rate this beer you have to compare it to other lite beers. That being said, it has more color than a bud or coors and many others, and has more flavor and a stronger smell than many lite beers. Whether one likes it or not is subjective. Yeah, it probably does taste like water after you've had a few. That's usually the case with ANY light beer. You don't drink a lite beer like wine and sip it for an hour. Most people I know who drink any light beer aren't looking for spectacular taste or want to sit and analyze the flavor sip by sip. They want cold, refreshing alcohol that won't fill them up, and usually its only the first sip of a light beer that I've ever heard, " damn that's good". This is basically that, drink it before it gets warm, don't expect a lot of impressive flavor. It's a straight up beer. Few people crave salads, they don't offer excessive and awesome flavor, but its something to eat. Few people crave light beer, but its a beer to drink.

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Yellow golden color with a thin fluffy head with low retention.
Unpleasant aroma of corn and some bread with butter.
Sweet flavor of corn with light hints of floral and herbal hops. Quite metallic with some Diacetyl.
Light to watery body with good carbonation.
Not a good example of this questionable style, being not even that refreshing.
