Miller High Life, the Champagne of Beers! Yee Haw. I feel like a dirty hippie tonight.

Serving Style : 24 oz liquor mart can complete with the homeless brown bag, poured into a fiesta ware glass for appearance (how's THAT for a contrast?)

Appearance (3.5) : Soapy, sudsy white head that's easily penetrable and recedes like the revolting blob. Bubbles grace the bottom surface of the head, much like Champagne would! Pale golden color with medium transparency.

Smell (2.5) : Dirty corn, grass and straw, hay, wheat, adjunct. Touch of orange at the tip. Dirty underwear. A pretty dirty smell.

Taste (3.5) : Straight out of the can it's heavenly. The best $1.49 beer you can get. If you're down on your luck and you just want to pass out, look no further. If you want to enjoy it, it's good for that too. Out of the glass it's refreshing and light bodied with a full bore creamed corn flavor profile. If you liquidized creamed corn and added some alcohol you'd be close. Other flavors I'm getting are some citrusy wheaty zestiness, hint of pepper. Not bad. Not bad at all...

The corn beer. Nebraska, eat your heart out!

Mouthfeel (3) : Heavily carbonated, refreshing, light bodied. Like a heavy Sprite with some mild creaminess. The foam even comes up in belches a little bit. This won't win any awards but it sure isn't awful. For its style it's just what it needs to be.

Overall (3.29) : Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. This beer isn't out to compete against crafts, it's meant to be a working man's beer after a long day in the sun. For that purpose it does just fine. High Life is a tasty treat, abundant with corn. If you hate corn or corn-based beers, stay away! Very adjunct-y, mildly sweet, absolute zero bitter. No hops. This is one of my favorite beers because it's so cheap and it's still tasty. Where else can you get an 18 pack of bottles for $10 or a 30 pack of cans for $15? Or a 24 oz. for $1.49 for that matter??? Long live High Life!

This poured golden and with bright clarity, a fat head of white foam that did persist in the form of lace that clung to the glass. The nose is faint grain and a bit of corn. The taste follows the nose all the way. it's mild. It has a bit of corn girts, a touch of corn sweetness and not too much malt. The carbonation is ample and bites a bit. There is a sour taste on the back end. I can't place it. Is it the beginnings of metallic? is ti yeasty? It gives a slight pucker tothe finish and a nice edge to the drink.

This beer was actually quite pleasant. Had no off flavors, no fruitiness at all and drank easily and without effort. It did not develop any off flavors as it warmed. It leaves a touch of sweetness as it finishes dry.

It says it right on the label- the champagne of beer. You get all the effervescence and character of a fine champagne with the drinkability and flavor of a light Pilsner. High enough abv to drink all day, but classy enough to impress a date. High-life truly has it all.

I stole this from someone's garage when I was 17. After drinking 1, I put the rest back.
