From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue IV:

Wheat what? Ale or lager? "Beer with natural flavor" and "contains no additive or preservatives" on the label. What is the natural flavor? The website insinuates that orange flavor has been added and eludes that brewers add natural flavors and citrusy hops. A little confusing. Let's be thankful they did not label this as a Hefeweizen.

Thin white lacing with minimal retention, pale yellow-beige color dons a thick cloudiness, yet there is no sediment on the bottom of the bottle. The orange aroma comes off like organic household cleaner rather than a wedge on the side of the glass. Crispness is there, light-bodied, though a slight dextrin within makes it seems a bit bigger. Watery orange flavor, similar to a diet orange soda. No real hop character to be found. Faint wet cracker maltiness fades quickly into the bone dry orange finish.

Blindfolded this could have been mistaken for a watered-down diet no-name orange soda. Miller would have been better off filtering this, killing off the orange flavor and adding a bit more wheat. Not undrinkable, though clearly on the path that strays away from being a beer.

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From the 120z bottle to a weizen glass.

A co-worker in the Twin Cities picked this up for me so I'm not sure how she stored it. Given the other reviews of this beer and the fact that Miller has decided not to roll this out nationally, I don't think it would matter how she stored it.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden/orange color with a thick white head that disappeared pretty quickly. Cloudiness is OK, but color is a tad off.

Smell: Smells like a lemon Miller Lite and a little skunky.

Taste: Not much going on here. Slightly more sweet than a regular Lite, but not much.

Mouthfeel: Very light-bodied with too much carbonation and watery.

Drinkability: Give to guests that don't know any better.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Hazy yellow color. Poured with less than a one finger head that dissipated quickly to a skim with a thickining ring at the edges. No noticeable lacing.

S: Light lemon zest and grass; that's about it.

T: Condistent with the smell, lemons and grass. No finish.

M: Very light bodiy and thin (not in a good way). Weak carbonation.

D: Drinkable, sure. Forgettable, definitely.

a: pours a hazy yellow color with about a quarter inch of head that reduces to an eigth of an inch quickly and remains there for the entire time i drink
s: lemons and grass mainly no bitterness
t: grassy lemonade comes to mind
m: light bodied beer with a little carbonation

overall, this isnt too bad but not anything that i would buy again, this is the best of the miller lite "craft series" but still not good

Poured a cloudy medium amber color with massive white puffy head.

Smell shows some citrus (lemon) notes.

Taste is also dominated by lemon, almost as if lemonade was mixed with my beer. Too overpowering.

Finished too thin with no taste.

Poor example of the style. Stick to making Miller Lite.

Although this had a very attractive, cloudy pour, this is still Miller Lite. Being cloudy, I expected some sediment in the bottle. There was none. The label says it has a hint of citrus. It had a thin and watery mouthfeel and reminded me of a shandy...or maybe just a lemon soda.

Let's just say it had the word beer on the label.

I taste these beers for the beer club I have. I should get Hazard Pay for this one.

Again, another lack luster offering from Miller.

Color: Hey this actually may taste good. Like Blue Moon or Hoegaarden.
Aroma: ok.
Taste: Nope. Just nothing there to write home about.
