The self proclaimed "Champange of Beers" for a mass brewer it may well be! This is my wife's favorite beer( she of no taste buds and no sense of exploration when it comes to food or drink!)
It is a decent, clean brew that must be drunk cold and quick! Abalanced mix of corn,malt,hops equal a neutral taste and aroma. Recommend having it when washing down a Big Mac.

I'm drinking this out of an oversized wine glass, as befits the Champagne of Beers. High Life pours a very pale gold color, good head, good lacing. Doesn't really smell like much, but tastes remarkably good for "swill," sweetly malty with a nice biscuity finish. Mouthfeel is overly fizzy--the "champagne," I suppose--but still, High Life's not so bad. Easily my beer of choice for its class, and better than stuff like New Glarus's Totally Naked.
I'll hopefully pick up a bottle of High Life soon for comparison, as I remember it being superior to the canned version.

Miller High Life is a great all around beer. However, I wouldn't necessarily call it the "Champagne of Beers." I mean its good and all, but that title is very prestigious. I like the bottle it is in, very unique look. Its got a great taste, and one of my favorite beers around right now.

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.

One of several "exciting" brews left over from our friends on Mardi Gras.
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that quickly dissipates.
Smell is of sweet corn and not much else.
Taste is just corn and grain with a slight sweetness. This is actually probably one of the better tatsing macros out there but I don't think that is really saying much.
Feels like carbonated water but there's nothing really horrible about this beer. For whatever reason it seems to be the most tolerable macro I can remember but obviously I'd still avoid it if I can help it. But hell, for those guys who just drink beer for the effects, I suppose this is the best tasting thing you can get for about the cheapest price around. Is that worth anything?

Super clear and fizzy, this looks a bit darker than normal urine. Not a totally gross looking beer. Nice foamy head. Smells of adjuncts, mostly corn. No hops noticeable. Taste is the same, a little sour. Feels thin and watery, of course. A little worse than I thought it would be, but mostly just...meh.

Not just a bottle, but a 40 oz bottle from the local 7-11. Keeping it classy!
App - Very pale gold color, brilliantly clear. Let it warm up a bit, and it poured a monster head with surprisingly good retention.
Smell - After an initial whiff of sweetness (DMS?) it settles into a slightly earthy, possible hop aroma. Slight hints of sulfur or something similar.
Taste - A clean taste with little flavor initially, but with a hint of sweetness. Some very subtle hop bitterness that lingers into a generally clean finish.
MF - surprisingly low carbonation, and light body. No astringency or warming. Not sure if it gassed out in my pour, but the lack of carbonation hurts the experience for me.
Overall - Not a disagreeably flavored beer for me, but certainly on the bland side. As such, it probably hits the mark for an American Macro Lager.

Poured from 24oz can to 20oz(?) glass beer mug, golden hue with a 3 finger head that fades down, highly carbonated.
smells of apple/vegetableyness (corn, rice, etc), malts, sweetness
taste is straw dry, easy to drink, rice, corn, wheat, slight bitterness, crisp from high carbonation.
mouthfeel was watery, bitter, crisp
overall not the first choice one might make, but it's not the worst that could be made either.
