nice golden color for an american lager. nice head too.

smells like it says on the can, champagain of beers I got that wine champaign smell.

has a bit of a floral taste a little metalic maybe from the can.

it was a little dry but a little more smooth than what i remembe from my binge drinking days.

overall not to bad for an amarican lager.

Poured a pint can into a glass mug. Pours pale yellow with a towering, white head. The head does dissipate, but it leaves a nice cap on top with some lacing around the edge. There are plenty of bubbles rising up from the bottom of the glass. The smell is of malt and corn. There is some mild hop aroma as well, but it's hard to detect. The flavors of grainy barley malt and slightly sweet corn are the dominant flavors. The hops are very mild. The body is light and it is abundantly carbonated. It's crisp and refreshing. This beer is very easy to drink. Overall, this is a solid adjunct lager that is good for a tailgate, a fishing trip, a picnic, or just for a nice summer day when you have the barbecue pit going. For the price, you can't go wrong with this beer.

Poured from a keg in my kegerator.

Appearance: A bright golden yellow color with a lot of bubbles (perhaps my fault, but High Life is usually pretty carbonated in cans or bottles). After pouring, it developed a nice white head with just enough lacing.

Smell: Very grainy. Corn is definitely present with a touch of hops in the background.

Taste: Tastes of sweet corn and grain. A nice kick to it as well.

Mouthfeel: A very good mouthfeel. A nice medium body with just enough carbonation.

Overall: This is one of my go-to beers because it has a good balance between price and quality. Compared to other beers in the same price range (Natural Light, Busch, Keystone, Pabst), Miller High Life is definitely a home run. Not to heavy, but has all the flavor you wish you had in lighter beers.

Serving type: On-tap (but equally good in bottle. Not as nice in a can)
