This is the cold filtered, unpasteurized version of High Life.

It is a beautiful lager. Color, clarity, and head are all spot on. Head fades a little too quickly from the adjunct.

Mild, neutral, grainy aroma.

Top quality taste for a high adjunct, pale, American-style lager. The fact that this is not pasteurized is huge. The heat from pasteurization really diminishes the flavor of beer. Drink this side by side with a High Life and taste the difference. It is the same beer! MGD is malty and grainy, but with minimal astringency. The body is smooth but also somewhat rich and satisfying. Bitter, lemony, mild hops linger. Yes there is some corn / grain. But the beer tastes good and fresh and mild.

Mouthfeel is perfect for the style.

Overall pretty damn good and way underrated.

Pale golden color, smell was nearly completely absent (I honestly don't know how to describe what I did smell), taste was nearly completely absent (rice? Corn?). What can you say about a beer when the high light is the carbonation tickle?

I give this high rating because when it comes to MGD you have to compare it with other similar beers such as Budweiser, Heineken, Stella, Labatt Blue and so on. You shouldn't compare it to IPA's or stouts or ales but rather similar commercial beers and for me MGD gets a 5 because it's the most delicious. It is fraught canned and when you poke the tab as it suggests and pour it into a pint glass it just tastes very smooth with a creamy head and very crisp. If i tailgate this is my beer of choice. Although haven't had this beer since Budweiser took over so next time I have it my opinion might change.

Very crystal-clear taste, Corn and hop taste are there although not deep. Not bad for a commercial beer, on par with budweiser. I would be o.k. drinking this for a simple daily drink.

This beer is neither good or bad, the taste to me is somewhat bland and boring, there is nothing special here.
