look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of corn, somewhat musty. WTF? I would describe the taste as soon as I find one. The is by far the weakest beer I have ever tried, I am struggling to find any flavor profile other than water. Feels like water in the mouth and overall most NA beers I have had taste more like beer than this one.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear light yellow. Looks very light. A small white foamy head that doesn't stick around. Lots of big bubbles.

S: Corn, sugar

T: Clean, mellow... hardly any flavor at all. Just a slight corn flavor. You can hardly tell this is beer.

M: Descent carbonation for what it is. This is just very very light bodied.

O: Despite its light, almost non-beer stature in individual scoring, I still like this as a refreshing drink. It's one of those classically easy-to-drink lagers that go good with a lawn barbecue or a good college football tailgate -- in settings where beer isn't necessarily the culinary focus, but having a couple refreshing easy-to-drink beers with friends is key. It's an American tradition... it would do many of us good to remember why we started drinking beer in the first place ;)

12 oz can poured into a pint glass, a friend left this at my apartment, so i figured what the heck.

Appearance: 3 fingers of frothy white foam that quickly dissipates, suprisingly decent lacing. Very clear, looks like apple juice.

Smell: Corn, sugar, and water muddled together. Not much else there.

Taste: Also, not much here, a slight bit or corny grains and raw sugar sweetness, carbonated water.

Mouthfeel: Thin and very carbonated

Overall: During my college days i drank beers like this, not my style nowadays but, if its a hot summer day it would probably be better than gatorade. I like the term "lawnmower beer".

I'm not even sure how this has as high ratings as it does, it might have to do with the fact they dye the beer to make it darker than it actually is. I would definitely choose this over miller lite buts thats like deciding between animal blood and urine. There is no head, no smell, its extremely light but if your a fatty and you think this will help keep the pounds off then feel free to drink this yellow dye

Miller 64 is a lawnmower beer for sure. Obviously for those who are conscious about their carb intake but still have a hankerin for beer. I say....quality over quantity. Anyway...the beer pours yellow clear with good carbonation that forms a head...which dissipates over time. The smell and taste are typical...grain slight hop. Mouthfeel is nothing to describe really...more like water than beer. Overall its water with beer flavoring.

I enjoy good, flavorful beer. I also can not see my toes. Considering that the good stuff is usually upwards of 200 calories, I can stand to drink a light beer or two. My wife hardly drinks at all anymore but when we go to parties we'll buy a 12 pack and she'll only drink two so we always have this in the fridge. This beer is not offensive, just not much there. Pale yellow with average mouthfeel. No smell to speak of. Tastes like nothing really. I guess 6 of these would be pretty refreshing and then by that point I guess you don't really care what it tastes like. Oh well. Just finished a 5 mile run and was feeling healthy so I tried one. I'll probably drink some more, but not because I want to. My gut says I need to. Like having sex in a canoe, indeed.

12oz can poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours a clear pale yellow color. Produced a decent pure white cap of froth. Lots of lace.

(S)- A sweet, almost sugary smelling rice and dry corn husk.

(T)- An extremely mild, almost bland rice and a sugary corn flavor.

(M)- A good carbonation level. Crisp and refreshing, but little to no flavor to speak of.

(D)- Very light and crisp with a refreshing finish. Easy to drink, but with this lack of really any flavor, I will gladly pass

Are you really thirsty? Have you been lost in the Outback for a week without water? Or maybe you're on a strict diet. If this is the case, you might like this beer.

Of course, this is not a poor beer masquerading as a great one. You know what you're getting into here. So, there's nothing to do but tell the truth.

This beer pours a pale yellow and smells of nothing. It tastes as light as it looks. The lager flavor is faint, as if diluted. It's not that it tastes like the worst beer ever. It's just hardly there.

To sum up, drink if dehydrated. Otherwise, be afraid. Be very afraid.

This is my cheap, low calorie go to beer. Overall, nothing too impressive. Good for a break between better and more alcoholic beers. This is a good replacement for water. Next to no taste and is fairly carbonated. The only good part of the beer is that it is cheap and cold. Still, better than Bud Light.

I accidently picked this up for a get together we were having. I bought one case of 12 oz bottles. What a mistake.

It pours ok, a light head, and looks good, and that's where it ends. It tastes awful, lot's of fizz, not drinkable at all. It leaves no after taste.

Overall, I would never drink it again, ever.

Pours very pale gold with maybe a half inch of white head. Head exits rapidly. Smell is maybe a touch of corny grains. Really hard to smell anything at all. Taste is beer water. Take a standard Miller Genuine Draft and dump half the glass. Fill to the top with sparkling water and this is what you would get. O.K. maybe just pout out 40%. Yes you could drink this every waking hour and still function pretty well but why would you? Much better to cut back to one good beer per day if calories or abv. is an issue.

A very light straw color with lots of bubbles. No smell here at all, hmm. No taste either, just fizzy water, and maybe some grain. Mouthfeel is extremely light with lots of bubbles, very smooth. The beer is very drinkable and there is nothing that taste bad about it. If you plan on getting hammered and want to save the calories then this beer will do the trick.

Might as well tick this one from my mystery box of beer at the local store. Really had to clean out my glass to make sure Maine's Lunch did not leave any godly deliciousness in there.

A-Very light in color. Fizzy head barely appears. No lacing really. Just Macro.

S-Very watery. Oh wait, this is 2.8%! There we go. Might as well start drinking those Non-Alcoholic ones at this point. Macro smell, but even more dumbed-down.

T-Yeah, that what I was expecting. Watery, and Macro-esqe flavor. Not too much to be said beyond this point.

M-Agua!

O/D-I guess I understand the concept behind this beer concerning the calories and what not. Nevertheless, this beer sucks. You would have to drink about seventy if your trying to get drunk, and by that point, the calories will probably add up. Boo.

The 64!!! I could think of 64 reasons to drink this beer on a 93 degree day...alcohol content is not one of them.

The appearance is a crystal clear slightly bright yellow body with many carbonation bubbles popping around, foamy white head that dies quickly.

The aroma is nothing more than adjunct and water, all the way. Corn? I think? I'm not sure but I'm pretty sure this beer is all adjunct.

Flavor comes in considerably sweet, which is odd with the low alcohol content...did they add artificial flavorings and sweetener? No particular good qualities, nothing terrible, a little grainy but beyond that beer water.

Good crisp mouthfeel, a little watery, but for the style good.

I certainly don't hate it like I do a lot of other light lagers. It is slightly respectable in its attempt to market itself as a 64 calorie beer. But it is so low alcohol it seems its only use is to swig when you are hot.

12oz bottle, my final stop on the beer menu of a self-proclaimed craft beer friendly, chicken wings crazy, restaurant in Idaho Falls.

This beer pours a crystal clear, pale straw colour, with tons of thin puffy, foamy white head, which leaves a fair bit of stringy cotton ball lace around the glass in its hasty wake. It smells of very faint, indistinguishable sweet grain, and hard water. The taste is thin doughy malt, adrift in mineral water. The carbonation is very soft (low-carb, get it?), the body very light, and of course smooth. It finishes a bit surprisingly, the ghost of a sourdough loaf wafting about.

These types of further dumbed-down beers remind me of one thing - when you pour too much water into a cask-strength whiskey. At least then, you could fix it by just topping up with more whiskey. No such luck here, I'm afraid.

12oz can taken from a case, poured into a 12oz beer glass.

Appearance - Poured a perfectly clear lite yellow, about 1 finger of rocky white head, misc. sized bubbles - down to a cap in a minute. I'm actually getting some lacing here, a pleasant surprise. *After finishing the glass, I had solid defined lacing from top to the bottom of my glass, this alone will raise the appearance to a 3.0 for me, I'm a sucker for lacing ;)

Smell - From the can, metallics from the can over-ride the smell a bit, slight grain and sweetness. From the glass, lite grain smell, lite sweetness, all is pretty faint.

Taste - The strongest sensation is a crisp tingle from lots of carbonation. There is some slight grain taste, and some slight sweetness, slight dry breadcrust long in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very lite and watered down, lots of carbonation, the carb adds a crisp finish. Very easy to drink, but not much for mouthfeel.

Overall - To be fair I must consider what this is - a 64 calorie lite beer. In comparison with other beers of this specific style I really can't knock it. In fact it's fairly refreshing after being in the heat, and I like being able to throw back a few of these quickly and not be buzzed or bloated - it's exactly what I want from a 64 calorie lite beer.

Miller Genuine Draft Light 64 has a thick, but quickly dissipating, white head and a clear, straw appearance, with some lacing left behind. The aroma is a lighter version of regular MGD: corn & barley, plus sweetness. Taste is also similar to Miller High Life or the Genuine Draft: corn, sweetness, and that odd cooked vegetable flavor, but MGD 64 is like the regular ones with water added to half the glass. The mouthfeel is light and extremely watery, and MGD Light 64 finishes dull, veggie, and dry. Overall, this is poor, and I would recommend that you avoid it. RJT

I already had a couple of beers and did not want to get loaded but still felt like drinking. So I opted for the MGD 64.
Pretty much as expected.
A weak, watery light beer, but I knew that going in.

It is weak on flavor, but I think it tastes better than the regular MGD. It does not have the weird vegetable taste that MGD has.

Needless to say this is easy to drink. Goes down like Gatorade.

For what it is, its not half bad.

Give it a try if you want a low alcohol, low calorie, light beer that is refreshing and easy to drink.

A:Very pale clear golden yellow color. Has just a few carbonation bubbles. Just a very small head with no retention or lace to speak of
S:Clean aroma, light corn and grain odor with a small amount of hops also noticeable.
T:Light sweet corn hoppy taste, very carbonated. Almost too watery and too crisp. The low alcohol content is very noticeable
M:Very thin bodied, somewhat good drinkability because it has just enough flavor not to taste horrible
O:Not a great beer in any way. Has good color but fails to impress in the other three categories. Not a beer that you would ever want to brag about or spend lots of money on

This is a little better than Bud Select 55. Either way though this brew is weak. Far too light for anyone to enjoy on a quality level. This beer doesn't serve much of a purpose other than for economic reasons. Topping off at 2.8% ABV they should almost consider making this beer an NA brew.

Canned: 02/28/2011. 12 oz. can at 42 degrees into a pint glass.

A: This pours a pale yellow color with a finger and a half of white head that lasts a little longer than expected and actually laces a bit. Obviously I was not expecting much here but the head holds well considering how weak this shit is.

S: Light corn sweetness and grass.

T: Lightly sweet corn, grassiness, and some very light hops.

M: The body is thin and watery with lots of carbonation.

D: This is as close to water as a "beer" gets. It is altogether unoffensive but only because it is so weak.

A: Clear straw yellow typical of that of the usual light adjunct lager. A finger width head that actually lingered for a few moments before fading, moderate lacing left behind.

S: Ever so faint grains. Hardly any hop presence along with a slight grassy scent.

T: Faint grains along with a bit sweet hop presence. Not offensive, but not much there at all.

M: Very light feel with a pretty moderate amount of carbonation. Very smooth. Plenty of carbonation at the head.

D: Great drinkability.

I think this is the most boring, bland beer I've ever had.

A- pale yellow with fizzy white head that fades fast and leaves spotty lace.

S- Corn, water, and earthy hops. Be careful not to snort the beer trying to find an actual smell.

T- Corn, water, and touch of hops.

M- Slightly fizzy, watery, bland, and thin

D- So boring, like fizzy water with a touch of corn. yawn.

Bottle poured into pint glass

Appearance: Pale yellow with a little lacing.

Smell: Cooked corn malts. I'm actually excited that this beer even has a smell.

Taste: Really crisp, a little too much so. A little bit of malt character, mainly corn. That's about it for this beer. Can't detect much in the way of alcohol, but at 2.8% that isn't surprising.

Drinkability: I can stomach this beer because it has some flavor; it is still a boring beer, though. In the realm of light beer's though, this brew is better than most.
