A: Holy mother of god the head on this beer is like five fingers. It is a clear gold with a white head. The head SLOWLY fades and leaves a lot of lace on the glass. The head of this beer is very similar to a coke float.

S: Get a little bit of corn and some sweet grain. To be honest there just really isnt anything there.

T: Again a strong amount of sweet corn, some grain and a little bit of malt. This actually isn't terrible.

M: There is a good of carbonation going down, but in the mouth it feels more like water.

O: I can understand why people drink this stuff. Its super easy to drink, not much flavor so it doesnt offend and its easy on the wallet. I have had a lot of bad beers in my life, but I would say that this is actually one of the better adjunct beers.

A - Color is a typical straw yellow. Head seems to have decent retention. Seems to have a bit of stickiness to it. Leaves some pretty good lacing.

S - Getting some light corn and some light grains. Also a soft lemon scent. Nothing offensive and nothing really remarkable.

T - A tad sweet with lot of corn in the flavor. There is a mild hop bitterness through the middle but quickly fades into nothing.

M - Average macro lager feel. Medium to light bodied with high carbonation. Not bad not good. It is what it is.

O - Another easy drinking macro. I don't understand why people find these so offensive. If anything they are the exact opposite. Bland, low in alcohol and easy to know back and entire six pack. This is one of the better ones in my opinion. And cheaper.

Poured unto a pint.

Appearance: Clear yellow, white head pretty subtle but comes off 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Light hops, nothing extravagant here.

Taste: Slight corn, comes off like a light lager but slightly bitter, not so tasty but nothing i would buy again (thank god I didn't).

Mouth: Light-medium carbonation, easy to drink not easy to love but thus far not a bad balance.

Overall: I personally would not purchase this beer, not to knock on Miller but I do drink before I look anything up and this is nothing crazy, no need to disrespect but if you consider yourself a beer connoisseur you have to be a low life to like the "High Life". Salud!
