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.

Ok, I gave it a 3 overall because I had the beer during a hockey tournament in which I did well. Otherwise it is as I remember it a reasonable light lager that is boring but serviceable in certain circumstances - like hockey tournaments.

Stop with all the twisted panties! This is a light beer. Not an IPA. Not some Icelandic spring water purified concoction...LIGHT BEER. So, I like it...I take it for what it is. It’s the best light beer out there. :)

Pours a clear pale yellow color with a thin white head that keeps a little white ring about the glass. Smell is notes of corn syrup followed by hints of malts and a little grassy hop note. Taste follows, first with notes of corn syrup, followed by a little bit of grain and grass hop flavor. Some bitterness present. Finishes with a sweet corn flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation. Taste is too sweet for me, there is a little too much corn flavor.
