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

I do my best to like the big American brands. Why spend a bunch for beer if you can buy the lower priced stuff that is easy to get?

I told my wife. Somebody sent this home with me from a party and I will dump it out if I don't like it.

I poured it and it had a decent 1" head and was as clear straw yellow as the next one. The nose is nonexistent but the nice feature is that it does not have an aftersmell or an off scent that makes it difficult to enjoy some of the other macros. They may taste ok but don't smell good at all. Not mentioning any names.

The taste is clean sweet and grainy. Quite easy to drink and quite easy to enjoy. I told myself, this will go downhill as the beer sits and beer warms. It tasted the same at the end as at the beginning. I must say, this is one of the best, if not the best, macro made in America. The quest goes on, but I think I have had most of them..

3.1/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pale clear yellow, no head, a bit of lacing.

Smell: Smells a bit like eggs...

Taste: Fine, not a whole lot of flavor but seems balanced.

Mouthfeel: Thin and a little too carbonated. I love me some carbonation, but this isn't a good ratio for me.

Overall: I was preparing for an awful experience but was pleasantly surprised by this beer! I probably wouldn't get this to drink at home but wouldn't mind if it's one of a few options at a party or something.

This is buy far the best beer for your money. Tastes great though maybe not less filling that high life lite. you can't beat that its tastes good and I only pay 7.99 for a 12ver of bottles. Not enough people appreciate a good crisp clean american lager. i poo on the beer snobs.

2012 Miller High Life - Reviewed 10/4/2012

Appearance: Miller High life pours a light straw color. Carbonation is visible in the bottle but not after decanting. Head starts off strong, but quickly dissipates to a light dusting. Lacing is minimal, but persistent.

Aroma: Very sweet corn with general malt and light hints of a Subway dining room.

Taste: Once again, very prominent sweet corn notes with lager adjuncts, caramel malts. One of the fresher High Life's that I've had, yet still a bit of skunkiness on the back end, followed by a clear finish.

Mouthfeel: This beverage is pleasant carbonated, and has the body of a nice light beer rather than a normal malt liquor.

Overall: This is a highly underrated beer. If looking for 40oz that pairs well with fish, chicken, or vegetarian meal, look no further than Miller High Life. Looking for a gateway beverage between malt liquor and craft beer? Grab a High Life 40. The semi-sweetness of the malt is very well balanced with the burn of the alcohol, making this one of the most drinkable 40's available.

What can you say about the Champagne Of Beers? It's imminently drinkable, and even more forgettable.

It's like malt-water for hot days. It sure isn't bad, but it sure ain't good, either. A perfect middle-of-the-road beer. Inoffensive in every way.
