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.

I love the way the champagne of beers (light) looks in the bottle. Quintessential lawnmower beer. Smell? Not much to really speak to. Taste is clean and crisp, dry grainy flavor. Best served ice cold. This son of a bitch was actually in the freezer for a while. Very smooth in a watery kind of way, maybe good at a tailgate when that's the sort of thing a drinker is looking for. Also, it's cheap as all get-out if that matters for anything. It went very well on a warm June evening with my blackened salmon over greens. All in all, a refreshing and satisfying brew.

for its class of beer, which i have little love for, this really is pretty solid. i dont drink much american adjunct light lager, but if i am, this isnt a bad pick. i should say though, that the bottle is an awful experience, but the cans, when ice cold, can be refreshing if nothing else. when ice cold, the flavors of the can and the extracty malt stay back, and just clean yellow beer comes through, just like grand pappy likes it, and although it would never stack up, in my opinion, against even a lousy craft lager, i think it has redeeming value, and i would take it over scores and scores of its peers. i cant stand miller light, one of the worst beers on earth, but this high life light is a big improvement over it, when fresh enough, and when freezing. the temperature is important, more than in other beers, because a warm beer in this category is not a nice thing. its also not bad when you are full of wedding cake, thirsty, and stoned. i have to give it that, it has earned it enough times now to warrant this meager review...

Miller High Life Light brewed by Miller Brewing Co., with an ABV of 4.5% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. High Life Light has the look of most light Lager on the market. However it has a bit more of an ABV. The smell is rich with flavors. You pick up on grains, malts and some hops. It smells like beer, what more can I say. Now for the taste it is light with some grains and malts. There is nothing overpowering about Miller High Life Light, it is smooth going down. The mouthfeel is smooth clean and refreshing. This is not a brew with a lot of flavor however it is a nice drinking brew. Overall I'm giving Miller High Life Light a 3.75 out of 5. Miller High Life Light is what it is Light brew. Miller Brewing Co. did a nice job with this one I would buy this brew again.
