look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

The sample I had was made by Molson's Canadian brewery in Toronto (no SARS jokes please) Ontario Canada.

I'm gonna PO some of the "beer snots" again but, this is a good standard American lager. Better than most of the mega brews, not as good as some...but that is personal preference. It does have quality process and ingredients as it advertises....I just don't care for corn or rice in beer..too sweet for my personal taste......that's all.

Color: straw as a pale lager should be.
Poured into a very thick foamy head that stayed for 3/4 of the beer.
Aroma: sweet, boiled grains with a wisp of hops.
Start: mellow..lots grain and malt taste....very flavourful for an American mega brew
Palate: a medium body full of malt taste with a smooth sweet finish and slight hop after taste.
All in all, a great American lager. Seeing how no one made these sudz-o-phile reviews of beer when Miller was a main stay brew from Milwaukee at the turn of the century, I have no way to tell how this franchised modern drink compares to the traditional Miller of old.

I have the feeling that it is a familiar taste but not as heavy as the original American lagers.

Look, this stuff is the america beer for broke folks. Im not going to lie. Heck ive been to the point where my local walmart was selling this stuff near the price of budweiser, and yes it was because budweiser was on sale. Im not going to say hate this beer, but for some reason it is so hard to kill, its like putting ur mouth up to a drain full of piss and saying " Damn this stuff acutally gets you drunk" It should be less than 9.79 a 12 pack. I understand the nice bottles, and the hot little blondie we all wish we could of Fuked in highschool was on the bottle but still its not that great of a beer. Would i buy it more? Probably not, because this beer makes me want to work overtime so i can get good beer. I love this beer thou still, cause it can provide me with a cheap buzz, and its better than keystone light, and coor by far. So im so undecide on what to go to. I guess all i can say is quit drinking and save ur money for some good stuff. Then you will appreciate beer more. I waste all my money on beer, and i suffer to drink this like you know who as well. Good luck, and god bless America :)

Pennsylvania

3.1/5  rDev +16.1%
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.
