Serving: On tap in a bar game
Served: 17 August 2013

Appearance: Very pale yellow with no head to speak of unless agitated violently. Crystal clear and clean looking. This would get more points if it had a better color, but it almost looks sickly yellow, rather than something a little fuller bodied.

Smell: Is there a smell? This one just smells like "beer" not much else to say. No off smells to speak of, so that's good, but this nose is almost too squeaky clean- there's nothing going on here at all.

Taste: This beer was so cold, I almost got brain freeze. The bar I was at said their serving temp was below 32F. I can't imagine what this beer would taste like if it warmed up to a more reasonable temperature, but I can't imagine it would be good. All I tasted really was "cold", if you can imagine that in a bottle.

Mouthfeel: Nice a spritzy, good carbonation for a light lager style. Could be very refreshing in a hot environment such as a tailgate or ballgame.

Overall: This really is a terrible beer. Not much to say about this, because there isn't much too this beer. The appearance is bland and sickly at best, the nose is non-existent and the coldness of serving temperature way overpowers any possible flavor you might get out of this. The mouthfeel was somewhat redeeming, since it made the beer very spritzy- almost like a soda, though with a flavor as bland as this, I think I would have preferred to be drinking that!

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?
