look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Same as out of the can: gold, clear, carbonated, and a stark-white head that leaves some lacing in the bottle. (I'm reviewing it from the bottle, because the bottle is clear.)

Aroma - Smells sweet, grainy, creamed-corn, a little bready. It smells like High Life from a can, but a little more subdued.

Taste - Some slight bitterness, grainy, a little sweet corn adjunct, and some white bread.

Finish - dry, crisp, refreshing, smooth.

Overall - A solid go-to beer.

For whatever reason, Miller High Life out of the bottle seems, by my judgment, much less flavorful and more subdued than when I drink from, or out of, a can. It's still a good beer, but I think I'd prefer it from the can, which is opposite from my usual preference for other beers.

poured from a 12 oz can to a SA perfect pint glass

A- looks like movie beer, straw golden yellow, crystal clear and clean, frothy white head tons of carbonation

S- Sweet grains on the nose, a touch of lemon, a slight touch of banana. Musty or mold scent on the end.

T- Soapy water, boiled grains, lemon pledge, slighty offensive after taste.

M- light, highly carbonated, blah...

O- well, it sucks, typical AAl, tastes like corn water, smells like gym socks.

Drank this bad boy right from the can

The body is a clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Loads of visible carbonation. I drank mine from the can, but others at this backyard shindig poured theirs into a glass. The aroma is of corn and grains, maybe a little green apple. The flavor profile mimics the nose. Green apple skins, corn starch, and grains. Extremely bland, lacking any real flavors. Light-bodied, high carbonation. This is probably a little more palatable than others in its style, but it is still not very desireable.
