A:Hazy Straw Yellow

S:Light Hop notes

T:Light and refreshing, slight taste of hops with a crisp clean finish

M:Wow it is nearly as refreshing as water which is what the style is going for.

O:This is the best of the Light Lagers that I have from any of the big guys. As stated, if rating to style, this is one of the top beers in this category... if I want to kick a midget then yes, I'd rate all of the big guys beers with a 1.5... but this one doesn't deserve it.

A light pour got me a finger and a half of very active almost-white head over a clear pale straw body. This head up and vanished in less than 30 seconds. The beer is obviously heavily carbonated as there is a strong cluster of bubbles clinging to a lot of the glass and a serious rush to the surface. Lacing? Thees beer don't need no steenkin' lacing.

Mmmmm, corn. This beer smells of sweet corn, the weakest, palest possible malt and hops that are past their prime.

The beginning is an overly sweet blend of corn and pale malt. For a beer that says "Triple hops brewed" on the can, this is the opposite of what I, or any other hophead would ever be interested in, as there is no hop flavor detected.

Whoa is that baby light bodied! I might say that it were overly carbonated, but that seems to be what they're going for. It is refreshing, washes down anything, and wouldn't necessarily be refused on a hot summers day... unless you offer me a DIPA. Or an IPA. Or a decent pale ale.

It's hard to believe that just a few short years ago, my beer appreciation began here, and didn't end much further.

I liked this beer quite a bit when I was younger. However, it just doesn't produce like it once did. Triple-hops brewed means nothing to me nor my taste buds. It's not a bad light beer, it's just okay. I've had some in the aluminum bottles and they are pretty good. Refuse to drink the ones that come in Packer aluminums. It's a lite beer, a classic lite beer from Wisconsin which does score points, but it just doesn't end up in my fridge much.

At packer games if I cant go down to the concourse and find a fat tire or guiness, this is my go to beer. It tastes best out of the miller choices. I could say Im saving calories, but if this is the case I actually choose to just have water.

This is a lawnmower beer.

I also notice at lambeau that its the one that the fan who is most likely to start standing up to get everyone to do the wave has been bugging his fellow fans with, both in ordering one every twenty minutes from the candy striper and relieving himself of one every thirty minutes and having to pass all his felllow fans.

Thats okay, he and his two buddies will disappear during the second and sometimes the third quarter if they come back in the fourth quarter and still havent started the wave, will pick up their seats and go, tripping over the small pile of plastic bottles at their feet.

If he is staying look around for the bikini girls or for him to try sharing his flask that he snuck in with his buddies and after taking off his shirt and yelling a few obscenities at a visiting vikings or bears fan, he will slump over into the lap of the friend that took him hear and be gone early in the fourth quarter.

This is in no way miller lites fault.

Oh and I always go for miller lite in the beer races on the jumbotron. At least I will until miller chill is added.

T:Corn and grain sweetness, maybe alittle hops. Can't tell, though it's "triple hops brewed"

M:Typical fizzy light lager mouthfeel

O:Good on a hot day, more flavor than Bud Light and Coors Light if that's help

Poured from bottle to an imperial pint. Best by 04/09/2012.

A: Crystal clear, straw colored, with a thin, foamy stark white head that leaves some lacing and doesn't hang around for long.

S: Not a strong aroma, but smells of corn syrup and malt. Nothing offensive, however.

T: Again, not offensive, but not much going on, either. Slight taste of corn with a more pronounced aftertaste of cereal. Perhaps a slight hint of grassy hops.

M: Crisp, clean, and damn near water on the way down, with a very drying finish from active carbonation. If you like light beers, you probably just keep drinking to wet the palate.

O: I've always thought Miller Lite was less offensive than Bud Light. If I ever try Bud Light again, I'll have to compare notes. There are many worse things than to be at a kegger where your only option is Miller Lite. Pretty much the definition of a non-offensive American Light Lager.
