Ice cold pint can into NB globe

Look - Just about like any other AAL: pale straw hue, head dissipates to nothing, lots of carb bubbles streaming upwards. Standard for style, not super appealing.

Smell - Very light and sweet generic cereal graininess, light sulfur, light metallic and light vegetals/fruit. All this is barely perceptible, really - not good but not offensive either. Neutral.

Taste - Very neutral light cereal grains pervade, quite dry all around, vague apple/raspberry, mellow grassy hoppiness and cereal grains in the dry finish. Good balance, once again, very neutral and inoffensive flavor, but at least has some flavor.

Feel - Creamy smooth at first thanks to the effervescent carbonation, then turns watery because body is very light. Crushable.

Overall - I dunno, gang, I'm thinking this one is about as good as it gets when it comes to a light beer. I reviewed and rated this taking style into consideration as much as the beer at its face value. At only 96 calories (3.2g carbs) and 4.2% ABV, it actually has some flavor, and what's there isn't too shabby at all. Sure, it's light and watery, but c'mon man... it's a very light beer, and it fulfills the role really well by my estimation. Fantastic with any food really - super crushable. A great beer if you want to stretch out your drinking session and don't need something to think about too much.

This is a pretty solid Adjunct lager that is very drinkable and relatively tasty. It's slightly underrated

For the American light beer category. 5 out of 5 for the style. For beer in general I give it a C- nothing bad about this beer at all. Very refreshing and has taste compared to some other light beer will pair with just about any kind grilling foods or sandwiches

Slow poured 16 oz can into a tall Willi Becher glass. Served very cold

The color of the beer is considerably darker than other lite beers. It is inviting with its rocky head (which sadly does not last long) and looking refreshing.

Smell is fairly mute, but smells like American mass lagers, plain and simple. Grains, light sweetness, some mild pilsner like qualities

Here, I gulp. The beer is ice cold and it is meant for thirst quenching, which it does well on. The flavor is quite promising for a light lager, and I see no real faults to speak of when the beer is this cold. Many will argue that a beer's worth is evident when the beer warms. Me, as an educated beer consumer, knows that American lagers should be served very cold for optimum enjoyment.

Carbonation is on point. Body is light as expected. Lacing holds on the glass in tiger patterns.

Decent beer for slugging on a hot day - and is really helping me keep the pounds off while I recover from a back injury.

Thank you, for that, Miller Lite. You're alright

Worst of the major light beers, Everything about it is vile, tastes like someone put out a lit cigarette in it

Talking to a neighbor, he invited me over for a beer. We went over and sat in his garage and he handed me a Miller Lite. Drank from the can, so I can't comment on the appearance. I didn't notice an aroma. I don't like diet cola, and this tasted better than diet cola, pretty bland though, not much flavor. Mouthfeel was unremarkable. On a hot and sweaty afternoon, this might be kind of refreshing, but it's not what I would ask for. Afterward, I had kind of a thirsty feeling in the back of my mouth.

I have always enjoyed this beer. It’s light but not too light. A good beer for after yard work and at bbqs. Have had it on tap and bottles and cans. Always smooth and refreshing. Cheers.

Miller Lite is a pretty perfect beer for what it is, and it definitely does not deserve the low score it has here, just because it's one of the big boys.

Sparkling soft gold with a thick white head and clinging collar leaving drippy lace all around the rim.

Smell has hints of white grape and raspberry within primarily white bread and sweet corn overtones.

The medium body and unobtrusive, medium soft yet crisp carbonation delivers flavors of semi-sweet corn, grape and white wheat with faint accents of strawberry salt water taffy, finishing semi-dry. Somehow it remains balanced despite those descriptors, and is not too sweet or bready like many other mass market lagers, executing its purpose of being supremely drinkable admirably.

This actually is a great light beer. Good smell, light taste, and refreshing to drink. A wonderful party beer, with a clean finish. Much better than High Life with its weird, chemical lingering awful taste. Forget what all the beer snobs negative comments on Miller Lite are. They have no clue what a refreshing beer is.

Pale golden color, brilliantly clear as you'd expect. Pours a decent sized fizzy white head that disperses fairly quickly.

Very muted aroma, a soft sweetness that I can't definitively say is from grain. Clean once any initial stuff disperses.

Soft slightly sweet flavor, likely from grains or adjuncts. Carbonation is so high that the carbonic acid bite comes into play, probably doing as much as whatever hops are in this thing to provide a dry and very slightly bitter finish. If there are hops, they are hidden beneath the carbonation.

Light body, high carbonation as expected in the style. Lower carbonation would improve it.

Not a beer that I hate, given how clean the flavor profile is. A little less carbonation and a little more hops and they might have something.
