It's like water if water was really pissed off at you. Nothing here that screams "worthwhile" unless you just need to swig beer with few calories. Personally, I'd drink half as many full bodied beers if calories are that important.

Why do I try this stuff that gets left over from parties...I must be a masochist. Thank you Sarah for bringing (and leaving) yet another beer sample.

Very pale yellow....quickly falling head.

Tastes like Pellegrino, mixed with a splash of beer, with a funky (and not the good kind) aftertaste. Skip it, unless it's left at your party, and even then, skip it.

This is the worst beer I have ever had. Miller took their concocted piss water and added even more water to it. Stale flavor and smell, mouthfeel of lukewarm water, and a miserable sickly pale color. The only reason I could imagine drinking this is because of the low calories, but if that is the issue, eat a salad once in a while. Weighing in at 2.8 ABV, you'd have to bong a case of these things just to get a slight buzz, which would offset the low calories. As will everything under the Miller label, this is just downright awful. I actually heard there was a scene in the movie Zero Dark Thirty when they interrogated a guy by making him drink one of these. After one sip, he begged to be water boarded. This beer is pure torture.

This is an awful beer. Not that it tastes bad, it actually has no taste whatsoever.

Pours pale clearish straw, some artificial co2 bubbles and head hang precariously to the side of the glass.

Almost no aroma at all. Slight fizziness, like soda is all I can smell. The first taste is of, lightness, almost no trace of malt, hops, or even corn adjuncts. Just fizziness like alka seltzer.

One positive about this is that it is so unobtrusive that it is better than some ultra light beers. It's that there is nothing in there to be offensive. There is nothing in there to be tasty either.

They ruined a great light beer and made it this. Shame on miller.

I am a lover of craft beers but by no means do I turn my nose up to a macro beer from time to time...I enjoy kicking back pitchers of Labatts, Miller High Life or Pabst or whatever is on tap with the boys after hockey. I was interested in finding out if Miller somehow made a drinkable beer with only 64 calories. If it measured up to even the old MGD light I would probably purchase it from time to time.

Unfortunately this is about as bad as it gets for a light beer. Tastes like a seltzer water mixed with MGD...about 98 percent seltzer water and 2% MGD....just a real nasty charged up water feel to it...pours an excessive white head...very watery flavor and feel....this is bad....I've seriously had NA beers with more taste...seriously....It has no beer taste whatsoever..

Personally I think it needs at least 5 more calories to add some flavor and then they could call it Miler Genuine Draft 69...then they'd be on to something.

Appearance - Has a thin head and pours a very pale yellow color.

Smell - Some corn and that's about it.

Taste - Corn and water, not much there.

Mouthfeel - Thin and watery as expected, but still, is this the best they could do?

Drinkablity - No thank you. Not again. Be careful what you drink at Memorial Day get togethers.

64 (sixty-four) is the natural number following 63 and preceding 65.

Clear faint yellow appearance, slim white, soapy head, ...average look, not much to say.

Sixty-four is the square of 8, the cube of 4, and the sixth power of 2. It is the smallest number with exactly seven divisors. It is the lowest positive power of two that is adjacent to neither a Mersenne prime nor a Fermat prime. 64 is the sum of Euler's totient function for the first fourteen integers. It is also a dodecagonal number and a centered triangular number.

Aroma: wet air. Faint cereal scent. Mostly moistness. Hollow.

64 is a superperfect number - a number such that σ(σ(n))=2n.
In 8-bit home computers, a common shorthand for the Commodore 64

Bleeech!!! Awful! A wreck! Messy carbonation, and no flavor whatsoever. Nothing. Charged water, and water. Like Zap said, no beer flavor. Just water and harsh, horrible ...the less said the better.

Number of hexagrams in the I Ching.
Number of sexual positions in the Kama Sutra.
Number of demons in the Dictionnaire Infernal.

Texture: none.
Body: none.
Drinkability: pass. Having no flavor, you are not incited to "enjoy." Terrible.

What else can we say about 64?
The code for international direct dial calls to New Zealand
The designation of US Interstate 64, a freeway from Missouri to Virginia
The designation of U.S. Route 64, a highway from Arizona to North Carolina
The subject of the Beatles song "When I'm Sixty-Four".
The amount of crayons in the popular Crayola 64 pack.

and one crappy-ass offering from Miller Brewing Company.

Lately, as a consequence of my many personal and financial failures, I've been drinking a lot of low-rated beers. Today is the day I have forced myself to turn my notes into reviews, and I would like to end, bitterly, with this one, the shittiest of shitstains.

The only impressive aspect of this beer is that is officially considered a beer. That's not meant sarcastically: I realize that some genuine craftsmanship goes into making something this light that is still actually beer. But that's all that's worthwhile.

This is like Michelob Ultra. There's that same footy taste. I was expecting seltzer with a little bit of beeriness mixed into it. That would have been bad but still drinkable, since seltzer tastes okay and beer tastes good. This, however, is a badness beyond blandness. It's feet. The main aroma is the way your shoes smell, and the main flavor is like brusselsprouts steamed with laundry water.

If you're desperate to get a cheap, mild buzz but don't want to ingest too many calories, go sniff some glue.

pours out of the clear bottle a clear, light golden colour with a thin fizzy head that sticks just a bit from some active carbonation. some sparse lace, also. light corny aroma...nothing offensive. the taste can be best described as corn syrup flavoured seltzer water. it's pretty bad. the mouthfeel is all seltzery and prickly like a club soda. there is no body to speak of. terrible. drinkability is horrible. i had a hard time slugging down one bottle, and i can't imagine this even being thirst quenching on a hot day.

this is a new low in the ultra mega light beer world. putrid.

Poured into a pint glass, barely yellow with a foamy white, surprisingly decent sized head. At first. Smelled nothing like beer to me, though; more like dirty dishwater. So imagine my surprise when I discovered it tasted more like *clean* dishwater. Thin, watery (with apologies to water), and not worth finishing.

POurs a clean pale yellow color, with a small white head. In the aroma, very faint, small, sweet malt and a touch of skunky saaz-like hops. In the taste, a small maltiness, but really no flavor at all. A clean and light (or LITE) bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry to a clean aftertaste. Seriously, what was the point. Brewed for the masses and for the people who really don't like beer.

A:Very pale clear golden yellow color. Has just a few carbonation bubbles. Just a very small head with no retention or lace to speak of
S:Clean aroma, light corn and grain odor with a small amount of hops also noticeable.
T:Light sweet corn hoppy taste, very carbonated. Almost too watery and too crisp. The low alcohol content is very noticeable
M:Very thin bodied, somewhat good drinkability because it has just enough flavor not to taste horrible
O:Not a great beer in any way. Has good color but fails to impress in the other three categories. Not a beer that you would ever want to brag about or spend lots of money on

Served from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance- Almost clear, a slight yellowish tint.

Smell- Corn, rice, and slight stale hop oil.

Taste- Watery with a hint of hop extract. I'm quite unsure why someone would want to drink this. I'm really unclear if this is even beer.

Mouthfeel-umm it's like that water you get in europe if you ask for water with a meal, but do not specify tap water. bitter and carbonated.

This is pretty much intolerable, possibly used to say you're drinking beer, but not actually interested in taste or trying not to get buzzed at a party. This was given to me at a miller sponsered event that I won, while the Redwings game was fun, i'm actually sad I was exposed to the beers offered.

This beer truly has a funny aftertaste. Is it brewed with Hi Karate cologne left over from the 70s? I have tried this on several occasions, and it never improves. Note to self: Quit trying this on any occasion. Overtones of corn with the funky aftertaste just mentioned.

Comes out of the tap a typical clear straw-yellow, but it does at least have a fine-bubbled head. Aroma is weak, though crisp and malty - not at all promising. Flavor is very thin, like beer that has been cut with water. Texture is so watery, one might as well be drinking water - there is just a teeny bit of tingle, not near enough to feel like beer. Fuhgeddaboutit.

I wish you could give this less than 1. I understand that we are to keep in mind the style when rating but this tastes like the brewery workers drank some Miller Light, filtered it through their own kidneys, stored it in their bladders for a while, then...well you get the picture. Seriously, this is bad beer.

Are you really thirsty? Have you been lost in the Outback for a week without water? Or maybe you're on a strict diet. If this is the case, you might like this beer.

Of course, this is not a poor beer masquerading as a great one. You know what you're getting into here. So, there's nothing to do but tell the truth.

This beer pours a pale yellow and smells of nothing. It tastes as light as it looks. The lager flavor is faint, as if diluted. It's not that it tastes like the worst beer ever. It's just hardly there.

To sum up, drink if dehydrated. Otherwise, be afraid. Be very afraid.

I actually have a hard time thinking of this beverage as "beer"! Typical "Light" beer look and scent. Very little taste to speak water??? One possible use would be as a spacer for a night a tasting higher ABV selections!

Pours an almost clear yellow with no head. The smell was very metallic even though it was from a bottle. The taste was a lot of rice and some metal. Not very appetizing.

If you like water with a hint of coloring, this "beer" is for you. If you'd like to get drunk off of this "beer" be prepared to drink a case and hit the head often.

We bought a whole bunch of cases of this beer at the bar which employs me because we were told that the Miller girls were going to come by and do a promotion. Well they came by, and only stayed for about 20 minutes, so we were left with A LOT of this beer left. We all choked it down in a few days to make room in our refrigerators.

Appearance- Pale yellow. Looks like it smells - cat urine.

Aroma- Very slight hints of corn, and that's it.

Mouth Feel- Beyond light. Like club soda.

Taste- As I said before, cat urine. Also tastes like tin, like bad tap water.

Drinkability- It's drinkable in that you can throw back 15 without getting that drunk, but that actually hurts the drinkability, since you cant get drunk enough quick enough to not care about horrid taste.

Poured out of a clear bottle into a chilled glass, this beer produced a half finger head that disappeared before I could get a good look at it. No thin ring, no lacing. The color is light amber rating a 3 on the SRM chart. Bad smell, like that of a can of mushrooms that has just been opened...bad. I didn't know if I wanted to taste is, but I did. Bland, mushroom taste, with a little corn and rice. I guess I should expect much taste for 64 calories. Feels like water in my mouth, but a little dry. I will avoid this beer, as there are better light beers out there. Maybe this beer is just old, I don't know as there is no date on the bottle.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving traces of lace. Crystal clear pale straw color, like looking through colored water. Light-medium carbonation and very light bodied. Faint corn nose. Flavor is lacking, mostly hints of corn, no hops, no malt. Who drinks this stuff?? $1.25 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

LOOK:Clear, Very Clear with a hint of yellow. Then, I added a drop of Green Food Coloring for St. Patrick's Day; but otherwise this would look like some one pissed in your tap water.
TASTE: Water, Water,What is there to say really.

Okay, this is a light beer, and I suppose that I should review it in that light. However, it is also nearly tasteless. It is watery, pale yellow in color...moderately carbonated, and nearly completely devoid of any smell or flavor. Some spritzy carbonic bite, but nothing that tastes like beer. Not worth drinking if you want to taste your beverage.
