Miller Lite is one of the better American-produced light beers, but that's also like saying getting punched in the face is better than getting kicked in the junk. Will you watch the waste line with this? Yeah, probably, but the flavor is non-existent and this is one of those beers that's more popular because it's cheap instead of being popular because it's good.

I am furious to read all of the terrible ratings for this beer... Miller lite, as a very seasoned craft brew drinker, is an OUTSTANDING light beer. All of the American popular go-to session beers are shitty lagers (yuengling is a decent exception) and Miller Lite is a Pilsner that is in the same ballpark, but is tremendously better. Honestly, Miller lite is one of those beers that if I literally had to choose one single beer that I could only drink the rest of my life, I may choose it (although, a % or 2 higher abv would make it an immediate choice). I think Miller is complex and perfected considering its position in beer. It’s not amazing to anyone really, other than the fact that it’s so refreshing and delicious to someone who loves a standard, regular beer flavor, and it’s so light you could drink them all day. It’s so crisp and delicious in the context wherein it lies. People need to stop rating it for shit because it’s a “lazy brew from a corporate conglomerate”. Well, that’s not untrue necessarily, but that fact does not make this beer bad or anything less than what it should be to veteran beer enthusiasts. It is beyond expectation for what it is and what it’s intended for as far as drinking goes. This beer is a beautiful pioneer of the beer culture in America. Bud light sucks bud heavy sucks, Budweiser overall just kinda sucks... coors is ok, Miller is incredible in comparison... even against yuengling which I also quite like. Surprisingly, I never buy cheap or light beer besides cervezas and Miller. I am a craft brew connoisseur. I love my IPAs, stouts, porters, Sours. Pale ales, literally every category, yet Miller is still a great standard for light beer and always a go to I can drink at anytime. Please stop rating this brew out of context and bashing it. The condescending shit review that’s at the top of this page was really getting to me, because Miller lite is a beautiful beer for what it is. And I love high life almost equally and it’s soooooo cheap.

16oz can bb 2/18/18 consumed ice cold from the can. The beer looks like most AAL, you've probably seen it before, but I can't right now. The aroma is actually ok with a little bit of sweet corn and a hint of vague hops. The taste is watery malt, some vague hops and some off taste of butter. The mouthfeel is thin bodied, well carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is a definite oily/ soapy finish that ruins the experience for me. Overall, average AAL. I've had much worse and also had better.

Utter hogwash swill. Essentially in the most comprehensible of terms a can of the poor mans piss. Tastes like my mums unwashed arsehole after a day in the blistering summer sun when I'm being punished for being bad. Never have I not enjoyed the salty particulate of feces so much as when I consumed this beer. Heed my warning mates, at all costs avoid this rather unsavory brew or have ur tastebuds rendered to this shitting orfice of a cow

I drink miller lite when there is nothing else around. It is a fine light pilsner as the name suggests. No real smell, pours light gold, no head, and the mouthfeel is satisfactory. Out of the big brand commercial light beers, miller is leagues ahead of bud light, coors light, and its other competition.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Date code on can bottom is 'MAR1518'.
Clear, pale straw colored body. Minimal head and carbonation. No lacing.
Straight grain aroma, slight hops.
Mild grain taste, mild hop addition.
Thin body, with carbonic sting (which provides some sense of sensation overall).
A beer made for gulping, with refreshing, clean aspect. Minimal aroma and taste, but the beer is made for session drinking without having to pay attention to the beer.

Ok..to be fair...we’ve all had those times when we couldn’t afford better...namely 14 years ago in college. Get it. It’s bad...tastes like amber urine....and water. That’s about it...
