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).

Look-It is as clear as is its deception on your palate. Light yellow colors like piss and nothing special.

Smell-It smells like a beer that you should not let touch your tongue.

Taste-It tastes like you really shouldn’t have tasted this beer. Your nose was trying to save you from a catastrophe.

Mouthfeel-It feels like sticky garbage and once again this is just punishment for drinking this awful beer.

Overall-I cannot be more clear than DO NOT DRINK THIS!

Not good, flavored water that only has one redeeming feature. Served very cold it takes care of a beer thirst on a very hot day. Other than that, avoid

Hard to find in bottles but this is my favorite light beer. I usually enjoy it in two coozies...one thin bottle coozie placed inside a thick foam can coozie. I also enjoy it out of a mug when I am feeling fancy or watching a baseball game. It's not bad out of a can either. Much easier to find in an 18 pack of cans around me. Also widely available in a 32 oz travel size.
Because this beer is value priced I think most beer drinkers underestimate it. It has a great beer taste without the sweetness of regular high life and most other adjunct lagers. I have some nose-in-the-air friends who will only drink their overpriced bud light but I think they are missing the boat with high life light. It pairs well with almost anything...except jack daniels. Nachos, fries, wings, pizza, taco bell...very versatile beer for any cuisine. The mouthfeel is good and keeps getting better as you drink more. The clear bottle is great for when youre outside because you can easily see if a bug is floating around on the top.
This is truly the champagne of light beers...I think that much is clear.
