The first thing I noticed, this beer smells like a doctors office. Kind of that weird super sterile alcohol smell that makes you think you'll get a super virus. it has a bitter taste with a slightly skunky aftertaste. At least is is pretty smooth so it does have that going for it.

On tap into a pils glass at the Milwaukee airport.

A-My beer arrived with about one finger of shiny, white head that disappears pretty quickly. A stray wave or two of lacing remains the glass. The brew is clear, very-light golden in color, and reveals a few bubbles of carbonation.

S-Not a whole going on here...some corn grain and a bit of dry grass is all.

T-The taste is more steely than I recall from beers past, but there is still some sweet corn taste and vague grassy bite. Pretty mild. Finish is drying.

M-Very light feel with moderate carbonation and a crisp dry finish.

O-I couldn't leave Milwaukee without at least sampling one Miller product.... Anyway, this brew is pretty bland with a light, grassy hop note being the lone highlight as far as taste goes. Flavor aside, the feel wasn't half bad for the style. On a kind of related note, I certainly had better beer on my trip, but the Miller put me in a strangely good mood for my flight as I appreciated seeing one of my good friends tie the knot over a glorious mid-western weekend in Wisconsin and, honestly, good moods have to be worth something.

You can't go into this expecting a micro brew with a complex flavor and alot of body
and feel, or you will be heavily disappointed.
Honestly though, for a mainstream light beer though I don't find this very bad, but I am a big fan of pilsners in general (labatt etc)
So I mean it serves its purpose and goes down easy.

Only drinkable in 90 degree weather. Wouldn't use to make beer brats or water pan in my smoker unless it was the only choice. Don't waste money on this beer if it is beer. Unfortunately, people will only drink this b/c of the light taste and think they'll get hammered faster. Untrue, have one Revolution Anti-hero and see how the buzz goes. Why am I even reviewing Miller Lite?

Poured into a Guinness glass

A: Straw yellow with high carbonation. Poured aggressively and the two finger head reduced to a thin lacing that stood there for the entire time (that surprised me).

S: Corn, and really nothing else. There is really no smell.

T: You get a bit corn and then some faint malt at the back once you swallow. Out of all the macro beers, I honestly think I have gotten the most flavor from Miller than any other. So if you need to drink a BMC, go for a Milller

MF: Super watery, smooth, clean finish. Carbonated water really.

O: Now we all now this isn't a craft beer but I don't think it's as terrible as some of the other beers out there; Bud Light, Coors Light, Corona, Modelo, etc. I would much rather have this beer if I'm going to a party where only BMC's will be available. It is what it is.
