Harsh looking aal style beer, doesn't make a head or provide any lacing to be up on, just that returned yellow color, gold. Aroma was harsh, industrial metallic and bittering long boil hops.

Taste, more alcohol and metal. Lots of carbonation, corn, industrial again. Smells good when they make it, but everything goes downhill from there. Should be lighter than this, the fizziness is to the extreme. Lots of water. Mouthfeel is unpleasant like alka seltzer.

The light version of High Life. This beer was like water in almost every aspect. On the tongue it felt as if you were drinking a club soda, something I guess would be okay if you're into that. Aroma was almost nonexistent. Good for when you're doing yardwork and other home improvement projects. Taste was subdued and almost not there. Probably wouldn't have this again. I've only seen this in 32 Oz. cans, never bottles.

I am not a "beer" drinker, but enjoy Miller High Life Light. After my umpteenth kidney stone I decided to try a light beer, and of the several I tried this was my favorite. I tried higher rated beers such as Sam Adams and Guinness and could barely drink them. I found I like cheap domestics...go figure!

Taste is great for a non-beer drinker. Never liked the taste of beer, but being a light beer, it is smooth and easy to drink, and very refreshing. One reason I liked it is there is no aftertaste and tastes fresh! Oh and the carbonation is spot on, certainly the champagne of beers.

It has light straw color and thick head that takes a minute or so to diminish. Very appealing!

I like the smell, smells like beer! I compared it with the other beers I tried, and they all smell the same to me. Obviously I have no idea how to test taste, smell, etc. All I can say, is as a newbie, I like Miller High Life Lite.

For reference I compared Miller High Life to PBR (great, but too many cals), to Coors Light (okay), Miller Lite (did not like it), Bud Lite (okay).
