Will turn your stomach if you have any kind of food in it at all. Intensely carbonated. My least favorite out of all bargain light beers.

From a bottle
This lager is not too sweet, as some critics say it is, the corn sweetness is not too bad and it's well balanced with the rest of the ingredients. Forget about the stupid beer logo and slogan "the champaign of beer" I wish MBC would get rid of that slogan already. This is just a good tasting AAL and very low priced. If you want to get the most out of this beer, then drink it from bottles, not cans.

Has craft brewing ruined the party? Check out the legendary "Bros" rating. 80. Yup 80. Why? How could they? Is it because Miller High Life is, was, and always will be the best party beer on the market? You can bet your only can of "Heady Topper" it is. Try drinking 12 cans of Heady Topper. I guarantee you will puke. Not so with High Life. Light, crisp, slight hop taste with a wet finish. Easily put away 12 of these babies with no sickness or bloated feeling. No headache. High Life deserves more credit. It taught us all how to drink beers.

I have always liked Miller High Life. It is pretty refreshing and crisp but not completely tasteless. It is nothing special but pretty good for an adjunct lager.

High Life is for the everday drinker enjoys a clean crisp taste, quantity - emphasized taste. You drink High Life to escape. You drink high life because you're content. You drink high because your a dreamer. You drink high life because you're not quite sure of who you are. You drink High Life for many reasons, but the take away is that you drink High Life. So, you're on the right track.

For a Pilsner I find this beer good, much better than most american beers. I think if people did a blind taste test they would rate it higher.

Look: pale straw yellow, not necessarily appetizing but it's appropriate for the style.
Smell: Faint hay and grassy smell.
Taste: Corn, hay, grass, husk.
Feel: Fizzy, smooth. Makes you want to take another sip.
Overall: It would not be hard to drink a 6 pack of these. One of my preferred AALs and one of the best quality beers for the price.

Has maybe the best head and lacing of an American Lager I've tasted. A quality beer especially considering the value price point. Not fancy but solid.

One of the best cheap party beers out there. My go-to for quantity over quality is a tie between this and yuengling.
