Miller High Life is a beer I used to drink often. like many folks, I switched to a Lite beer. After a few years of swilling various brands of light beer, I found myself at a place that sold out of Lite. So I ordered a High Life. Boy-oh-boy was it good. I had forgotten just how good a real beer tasted. Since I never drink more than two brews when I am driving, I always order Miller High Life now. "The Champagne of Bottled Beers", it is as true now as it ever was. it tastes like real beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Tasted On: 04-06-2013
Freshness: Best by 04-08-2013
Packaging: 16 oz. can
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: 4-pack from Kroger

A: Light golden color, with lots of bubbles streaming from the bottom. Head is nicely sized at 3+ fingers and sticks around well; lacing is fair.

S: Lightly sweet malt and corn aromas, plus some faint noble hop smells.

T: Taste is of semi-sweet grains but is light on flavor. No real hop presence or bitterness.

M: Crisp feel and very highly carbonated with a light body. The finish is grainy sweet.

O: For a macro lager and lawnmower beer I guess it's OK, but the flavor and other characteristics make this lackluster.

Serving type: can

Miller High Life is probably my favorite american adjunct lager. It is one of the beers I always have on hand in my refrigerator.

Pours a pale yellow and with a decent head for an adjunct. I don't know why, but the aroma gets me every time, maybe a hint of corn in the smell. I really didn't drink this until my 30's.

The taste is good for a solid american lager. Not overpowering but it does have some taste. The carbonation is a bit on the high side and it does fit the 'High Life' name. Nice mouthfeel.

If I have one adjunct lager in my fridge, it's this one.

Haters gonna hate, but in my humble opinion, this is the only mass produced American beer worth drinking. I wouldn't pair it with food, and in fact, I wouldn't want to be stuck drinking this except on special occasions. Those occasions are this: when you are really hot and just finished mowing the grass. When you go to the beach with a couple of friends and light a bonfire. And on those occasions, trust me, it's a winner. Feel free to ban me from ever writing another review now...
