Pours a near clear yellow with little head. Not a lot of smell either. Or taste.

Surprised at reviewers here saying "don't feel hungover after drinking" etc etc ... er, it's an EXTREMELY light beer, like water with a beer crayon dipped in it. Of course you won't feel hungover, unless you drink a case.

Meh quality meh taste meh look. Cheap. Get what you pay for.

This is the best tasting lawnmower beer and everyday drinker. Gives least amount of hangover and has best taste for any American style lite beer. Best beer for a night out drinking 4+ beers and not feeling bloated and sick that night or next day. If you are in a situation where you are drinking for a long period of time, there is simply no better choice.

Out of the AAL category, this isn't too bad (especially compared to light beers). At least has a good amount flavor compared to the other light beers. I'm reaching for this over Corona, Dos Equis, Heineken, Coors Light, and Bud every single day if that's what's available.

It's the bag of chips for beer. Where you buy a bag of chips for the snack contentc you mostly get air, you buy miller for the beer and get water.

All depends on your expectations. Good beer to drink a lot of. Way better than bud light or coors light.

Miller Lite, one sip and you'll know it's Miller Lite. Pretty distinctive taste, you can taste the watered down feeling of the beverage. Here in the Midwest (Chicago/Milwaukee area) it's quite popular and served at virtually every bar in the area.

Pint on tap at Howie's in Portland, Maine.

Appearance: Clear yellow with a slight white head that is gone quickly. Very carbonated.

Aroma: Not much. Some cooked corn, some very faint hops and grass.

Taste: Not much in the way of flavor, but not offensive. Some grassy hints along with mostly water.

Mouthfeel: Quite watery.

Overall: It's better than Bud Light. So is most stuff.

Continuing with the light beer redux. I think this one is the grand daddy of them all, and I've always liked this one a little better than other light beers. A moderate pour from a tallboy can into a shaker pint produces a one inch head that dissipates rapidly, but leaves a ring of lace along the edge and an island in the middle. The beer is a pale straw color and highly carbonated.

Plenty of adjunct aroma which tones down as the beer progresses. The taste is rather sweet, with a faint touch of caramel. A touch of wet cardboard at first, but this also mellows out. The mouth feel is thin and watery, but with a little spritz on the tongue. Clean finish.

I can remember buying this brand when they came in eight packs of the little bottles. When I was a kid, these little bottles were popular for cruising down the road because of course you could drink them fast, but they also fit in your hand really well and were the best for throwing at road signs and mailboxes. I think Schmidt big mouth barrels were the best for this, or Mickey's grenades. Hitting one of those signs is harder than you might think because you have to take into account the speed of the vehicle, etc. So don't knock it.
