16 oz. can poured into tall mug
(best by Nov. 6, 2017 printed on bottom of can)

L: dark yellow-gold, crystal clear, big head of foam about an inch tall and slightly sticky; loads and loads of activity keep a full skin and super thick collar of white foam; slight lacing; beautiful brew

S: that AAL house paint thing ... grain, sour grain ... very weak aroma, so not much offensive but also not much to enjoy

T: corn, corn tortilla chip, loads and loads of grain, pinch of medicinality but also a pinch of earthy/black peppery hops ... it's just a pinch, but it's there and adding something;

F: light, almost watery but loads of carbonation fill it out and make it a model of drinkability

O: easily the best light American adjunct lager I've had, though the style is one I steer clear of over 99% of the time; this beer is good enough that I wouldn't hesitate to go with it when all other choices are terrible, and frankly, I probably will use it as a "drinker" to fill out my fridge when the fridge is running low ... it compares nicely to my favorite AALs, and I enjoy AALs, so me and Miller Lite will be meeting often

I know im of the minority on this brew but i truly enjoy it. Yeah its light and has hardly any flavor but what it has is great and you can literally find it anywhere. This is my lawnmower beer of choice.

A step up from Coors light, a step down from Keystone. Take that how you will. Looks just as much as Ginger ale as those two but retains at least some bit of froth on top as to not be mistook for a soda. An unattractive light apple smell with a bit of sulfer like burn in the sinus. The taste is the same very lightly fruity, but also has the hollow stale wheat notes on after taste. Feels lighter than a soda, which isn't necessarily a good thing.

Pours a light straw gold with a quickly-dissipating white head. Smells of nothing but a corn and malt mix. Tastes just the same. Very light bitterness towards the end of swallow, but more or less just a carry over of the corn and bready taste. Lingers on the palate, and not in a good way. This is just another light lager to avoid.
