Miller High Life is often referred to as the “working man’s beer”. It is a product that has been around for a long time and it has an image and low price that make it appealing to the blue collar crowd.

As for the beer itself, it is sweetish in taste with light grains and adjuncts dominating the flavor and only a dash of hops in the finish. The overall taste is on the weak side and it doesn’t leave a very lasting impression. It does manage to hold its foam a little longer than other beers of its style but its aroma, taste, body, and finish are all typical of a mass produced product.

Miller High Life is crisp and bubbly; hence the nickname as the “champagne of beers”. But don’t get carried away with this name- High Life is pretty ordinary and bland overall. It is very inexpensive and this alone will continue to result in steady sales year after year. But the taste is very plain and unexciting- the type of beer you reach for when you need some crisp refreshment but don’t want anything full- bodied.

When I need to go for a macro pils, I invariably pick this one over all others. Pours a light yellowish color with a small bubbly white head that does not stick around too long. Smell is of grain and then another dose of grain. Taste is not very complex with a nice, non overpowering malt sweetness, slight hop flavor in the background and a nice crisp finish on the flavor and the mouthfeel that is refreshing on a hot day. When I don't want something too complex and just a refreshing brew on a hot day, I'll take this over any other macro any day of the week.
