Purchased on 8/19/2018. Poured from the 12 ounce can into a 16 ounce plastic mug with handle. The beer poured straw yellow. As usual I could not detect any smell other than faint grains. The taste was typical of an American made lager. It tasted like beer. The mouth feel was also typical of this type of beer. It went down smoothly and was refreshing. Very crisp. I would drink it again and would reach for it over the usual A-B products.

L - Pours a straw yellow color with good head retention and lacing. Not as pale as other macro light beers.

S - Sweet malts and corn with a little hops. Predictably less strong scented than Beast Ice, but similar profile.

T - Tastes just like the smell. Corn and malts, tastes like crackers. Hops is little more than a pleasant aftertaste. Watery like any light beer, but very grainy and refreshing.

Overall - I have had very few light beers, but this is a personal favorite in the category. Very refreshing and inoffensive taste. A great beer for parties or relaxing at home. Better than the "premium" light beers, especially Bud Light.

I grew up, my Dad would drink Milwaukee's Best light. Now being 26, I thought I would give it a try. I don't drink light beer regularly, so I can only imagine what others have to say about it ie: bud and keystone drinkers. To start off, this is a good overly rounded beer. There is not too much complexity going on in this beer. Smells yeasty like pizza dough which is something I like in a beer. The beer has no top notes to speak of. Just goes in the mouth vaguely crisp and you get crackers, light toasted bread. Very dry all the way through. No hopp notes or none I can tell. Very easy to drink. This is a nice beer,but I would spend extra to get miller high life instead.

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 7/16/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not overly fruity. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and lightly sticky hop mouthfeel that is good. Pretty thin, but not watery finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.1%. Overall this is a decent light adjunct lager style. Solidly flavorful for the ABV. Nice clean malt/grains and decent earthy hop balance. Was a bit too heavy on the fruity corn notes, but definitely enjoyable for the style. Identical to regular MB with a lighter body, and without sacrificing much if any flavor.

This stuff is not that bad. No offensive smells or tastes. Just a simple, light American Adjunct Lager. My grandaddy and uncle both drank this stuff, so maybe there's some nostalgia there for me, but it is honestly worth a buy when placed up against other light beer.

Ehhh, not impressed. Not very tasty. The popping blue and dull gold colors on the can provide for slight redemption, but they are played out. A LOT of foam on these guys. Head doesn't settle very neatly. A sloppy drink that even the Tantroist of frat boys despise. I wouldn't serve this to my dog. I might sarcastically buy another case in the future, but I will never drink this again with a straight face.
