Poured from the can to a very tall weizen-flute hybrid.

A: As per style, very clear and straw pale. Slightly tight one finger head quickly dissipates in a flurry of carbo-action to a thin collar. Bubbles were pervasive at pour but have quickly died off. Minimal lacing and absolutely no legs to speak of. Can be agitated into a 1-2mm disk again at any time, proving saturation cabonation is high in solution.

S: Sewery mild euro style skunky hop with a wallop of adjunct corn sweetness. Some very faint breadiness. Very lightly toasted notes at edges. That sewery note is distracting. Gets less sewery as it warms, unlike most American AAL's.

T: Smooth on the uptake, as expected per style. Lager and light lager should be infinitely quaffable, and this one is no exception. Kinda boring and not much going on except a little very light american barley malt and a corny, almost "frito light" kinda note. Smooth on finish. Very well lagered and clarified tastes, just a bit flat and boring.

M: Carbo saturation leads to a smooth finish, slightly dry at ultimate finish. Slick on palate, and slightly sweet.

O: Good for exactly one thing and one thing only. If you want to sit around and pound a ton of beer without getting bent, this is not a bad option at this price point. It really is average in every way within the style and other examples have more flavor and less adjunct notes.

Light golden color with excellent clarity. A fingernail thin layer of white head rests on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is strongly of corn,but I get a bit of faint bittering hops. Mouth is very thin and highly quaffable. I get corn and some mild bittering hops in the flavor.

I have had many a Miller Lite over the years but not sense I started on Beer Advocate so decided to drink the one left at my house and do a review. I remember it being one of the better of the big boy lite beers. Anyway, poured it into a glass and already it is not going well. Yellow water? If I wrapped my hand around the glass and then looked in then it looked golden, but that is a lot of help. No smell to speak of, but nothing off-putting. Then the taste, I was disappointed. Nothing bad but nothing good either. I went back and forth in the range of 2.5 to 3 but then thought, I would rather drink water then use of liver function on this. Would only drink if it were the only thing available and I felt the need to be sociable.
