depends on the occasion, ambiance, situation, etc... mowing the lawn- it's a darned fine beer... ordering it draught at the local squeeze bar where the girls are letting it all hang out for a bigger tip- it's a darned fine beer....bringing a couple cases of it home for numerous neighbors after your next door neighbor has just returned home after a 10 month stay away from home due to a divorce- yep, still a darned fine beer. lookin' for an easy evening in front of TV sports with some fine grub... yeah, it'll work. but sitting home sampling beers and pretending you're michael jackson critiquing world class brews from around the world- yeah, right. this was my dad's beer (RIP old man). when i took his keg/frig out of his apartment when he was locked up, and brought it home to my barracks at nellis afb, it had miller lite in it. we all went crazy with it. not because it was good beer, but because it was a STINKIN' KEG!!! and then we bought ANOTHER ONE!!!
well, tonight finds me cracking open a bottle of $100, 18 year old, single malt scotch (just wanted to see what all the fuss is about, ya know?) and after the first petite pour was down, i popped open a can of this glorious brew as a chaser for the next pour. plus, i need to get really buzzed before the girlfriend gets home for reasons i can explain later....
so, without further ado . . . .
A- typicaL, generic, american, commercial pi$$ color . . . .
S- typical, generic, american, commercial pi$$ smell (but still better than buttwiper)
T- typical generic, american, commercial pi$$ taste (but still WAY BETTER than buttwiper)
M- typical generic, american, commercial pi$$ taste (trust me, it was more difficult and annoying to cut n paste this than it would have been to simply write it)
O- come on. this stuff is WAY easier to session (if you really have to) than those other typical, generic, american, commercial pi$$ beers on tap at the local skank bar. WAY EASIER to continue drinking throughout the night although at such a low ABV you'll need to mix in a few whiskeys to get to your 'happy' place.
there's a place in costa mesa, ca, called the goat hill tavern. about 20 years ago it featured a $100 lunch special of Dom Perignon and hot dogs. i feel like that lunch special tonight.
so anyway . . . . . the miller lite is okay. the good whiskey made it pale, but it was a good side note.
thank god for belgium and germany.
update- forgot to mention the hilarious review (and call name) of LACQUEREDMOUSE earlier. dude, if i had thought of that name i would have been bummed to find out it was already taken. but it was also right on the mark....

Mowing the yard , dont care what the neighbors think kind of beer. Ive had 3 great beers and just want to binge drink kind of beer. You get the picture , put it up against , Bud Light , and any other American beer and it would be hard to pick out in a blind taste test

This is one of those "punch-top" cans. It's a good marketing gimmick, not sure how useful it is unless you suck the can when you drink..

Smell is water, grain, corn, rice? Taste is like regular miller with the already lackluster taste zapped out. Seriously, the big tastes here are metallic water, carbonation, and a hint of grain and corn... in that order. Highly carbonated and extremely drinkable as long as you want a watery refresher, not a flavorful beer.

Best thing I can say about this is that it's inoffensive, drinkable, and has alcohol in it.
