12oz. can poured into pint glass.

A: Pale and straw-yellow colored. Damn near transparent. Started with a two-finger head, but that reduced to maybe a pinky-size by the time it started nearing my mouth. Minimal to no lacing to speak of. After about two sips the head is nearly non-existent. Very soda-like.

S: Very, very difficult to put any specifics here. Beneath the stale, metallic scent is a very slight grain aroma. I might be detecting some corn... Definitely not picking up on the hops. Overall, weak. Maybe the bottled variety might fare better in this category, as I assume the offensive metallic scent of the can wouldn't be an issue.

T: The head tastes of nothing more than metallic can flavor. Beneath the horrid-tasting head, there's a bit of grain flavor, a touch of bland sweetness. I'm detecting the faintest hint of bitterness on the back of my tongue. Finishes rather... well... flavorless.

M: Average carbonation. Thin-bodied. Drinks sort of like a soft drink. Nothing to really comment on here. Moving along.

O: This is essentially adult soda. It's light, it doesn't fill you up, and it's really easy to drink when you're standing around at a baseball game with 5 of your closest friends in the heat of a mid-summer night. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this beer, and I probably wouldn't even make it my second choice... But, if your only other choices are Bud Light, Coors, or another similar light lager, Miller Lite wins by a landslide. It's the quintessential "lets pound down 9 or 10 of these bad boys!" light lager.

ive long said I would rather drink anything else in the world than a miller lite, and maybe I still stand by that. maybe bud light on principal, but this is pretty bad. its one of those mass market crap beers that's little more than adjunct metallic tasting corn water, although I have no idea whats actually in this beer. I don't mind the mouthfeel, which is well carbonated and maybe a little meatier than some of its peers, but the taste is so minimal and bad. old malt, out of place sweetness, generic yeast, it just isn't very good. I guess for a late night games of kings cup or something it is passable, but at that point there are better options for less money. sometimes the commercials are comical, but that's about all I can really say for miller lite. hope to not encounter this again, but what are the odds of that.
