Serving style : 12 oz bottle, poured into glass.

Appearance (3.25) : Pours a foamy, white sudsy head at about 2 fingers. It stays in place longer than I thought it would but eventually evaporates into a styrofoam type appearance, and finally - a ring. Lacing is left ringing around the glass. The body is a pale, golden straw color with about 10% opacity. This appearance is 10x better than the comparable Budweiser Select 55.

Aroma (2) : Let's see, we have sweet corn, rotten corn, musty corn, grain, some vegetable smells, and then more rotten corn...all trademark of Miller. This is 100% Miller in all of its corny glory. Much like High Life, but less fresh and less diacetyl. Bouquet is medium strength, if you can even call it a bouquet.

Taste (3) : It's got that Genuine Draft/High Life type of flavor, only it explodes with h2o right in the middle of the tasting. It seems to come back again after you swallow, leaving you with the (good) trademark Miller/Miller Lite dry pilsner taste. Out of the bottle it's a whole lot of nothing, except for the dry pilsner finish. Out of a glass it tastes better (but who's gonna pour it anyhow).

For those of you who don't know what any of the Miller products taste like, I'll break this beer down : corn on the cob, some musty barley, followed by a lightly dry roasted finish.

Mouthfeel (2) : Light bodied, carbonated, absent.

Overall (2.27) : Miles better than Budweiser Select 55. I was waiting to find a single of this so I could try it to decide which was better. The nine extra calories are worth it.

Now, this really doesn't matter to me anyways, as I spend most of my nights reviewing crafts...BUT, it's nice to know if I ever go to super low-cal beers again, this one is a better choice than the seltzer water 55. Drink it fast though - - if it warms up you're drinking stale cornbread!


Update a month later : I decided to buy a 24 pack case of this beer because it's easy to drink and when I feel like a beer but don't want to pack on calories, this one is about my best bet. It won't replace my crafts but it will give me something to guzzle after a bike ride or while making dinner. 64 Calories is asking a lot out of a beer, and for something to be drinkable at 64 calories it's gotta get some cred.

By the way, out of the can it's pretty nasty but if you pour it into a glass (or a mason jar) some esters are released and you get a nice almost wit-smelling aroma and a better overall flavor profile. I assume most folks are drinking this straight from the bottle/can. Try pouring it for better results.

Just way to watered down to consider an enjoyable beer, something to drink to get drunk and stay thin

If you like water with a hint of coloring, this "beer" is for you. If you'd like to get drunk off of this "beer" be prepared to drink a case and hit the head often.
