32oz can, poured into a nonic pint glass.

A - pours a clear gold with a soapy white head that retains well and leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

S - Weak aroma overall; grains with a faint hop character.

T - Follows the nose. Sweet grains, slight hop bitterness. Standard for the style.

M - Very light-bodied, high carbonation. Clean finish, drinkability is its strong point.

O - Figured I'd snag this and try it while I still could. It's very okay.

What happened? I like High Life, despite the corn syrup, so I bought a 24 of the light version. Nearly threw up and had to trash 3/4 of the case.
If you're gonna go for the light just grab Miller Lite and party hardy.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass. Pours a 2" pillowy, frothy white head. Color is light straw with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma is of mild grains and water. Mouthfeel is very light, almost lighter than tap water. Flavor is also very mild, just some graininess, a bit of cracker, yeast roll, and a bit of hops in the finish. Overall: It is as expected -- a light easy drinker for a hot day.

Looks light gold with a white head that leaves a pretty thick lacing. Lots of carbonation popping up. Smell is corn, hay, wet grain. Taste is sweet corn syrup, grain, not much else. Clean finish. Light, thin body. Overall, eh...of the macros, I prefer Miller products, and this is basically just a throw em back kind of beer. Not a sipper, not one to savor, it just is.

Unfortunately, I dislike this one just as much as the regular. IMO, Lite is far superior to this, and I'm not a big fan of it. Has a watered down taste of the original and I can't stand that taste. Haven't had in a while and will probably never drink again.

Got 18 bottles for $10. That is the only good news I have to report. It’s not good. I didn’t think it would be good, but it’s worse that I thought. If you have other options, explore them.

A 12 pack of clear twist-off bottles ran me $8.49 at my local Total Wine & More; I don't know that I've ever actually seen this beer sold anywhere else.

This was a decent light lager, had the classic AAL taste but was not nearly as offensive as High Life, although you have to keep this beer as cold as possible.

Average light beer. It’s like Miller High Life with more water and a little less taste. It’s a good thirst quencher if nothing else. Have had it in cans and bottles. I think the bottles are better. Cheers.

It's hot outside, the wife's complaining. You're health conscious, you know it's hot, so you should stay hydrated, but you really do need a beer right now. This is what you should reach for, because it exists in a space between beer and water, lurching ever so slightly toward the world of beer, so that is good enough to enjoy.

Different beers for different jobs. If you're a line cook at an unprofessional eating establishment where drinking on the job is not only allowed but encouraged, trapped for hours over a sweltering flat-top grill, I highly recommend throwing a case of tallboys in the walk-in cooler. Your coworkers will thank you for it.

Looks like nothing. Smells like nothing. Feels like nothing. That's why this is enjoyable. Especially compared to the miserable "classic" highlife. This beer is okay. It doesn't try to be anything it's not.
