Notes / Commercial Description:
Miller High Life, also known as the Champagne of Beers, is a quintessentially classic, American-style lager. In 1903, Frederick Miller created Miller High Life because he believed that the good life, the High Life, should be accessible to everyone, not just the upper crust. To this day, Miller High Life continues to be faithfully brewed as a golden pilsner, utilizing light-stable galena hops from the Pacific Northwest and a select combination of malted barley.

My favorite cheap beer after Coors Banquet. Light body, moderate carbonation. Taste is alright, goes down smooth, easy to chug. Good for college parties. If you're broke, it's one of the best.

This is the beer of rainy days. This is the beer of couch cushion money. This is the beer of all beers.

Crystal clear bottle that is filled with yellow purty liquid that pours sicky adjunct flatness down your throat while you stare in awe at the moon.

The smell of a two-stroke string strimmer mixed with the aroma of High-Life is my mediocre summer. Sweat and blood and sunshine and MHL is all that I need to feel alive anymore. I never knew I would get to this point of drinking step-dads beer. So I guess that is an accomplishment. I used to shake his beer so it would blow up all over the table when he opened it. He was always so lit at that point he blamed the witch on the bottle.

Terrible stuff...yet put it in your fridge and you will find every reason to drink it. And dang if I ain't even rating it. Amazing how the golden shower of beers finds her way into my grocery kart.

Good burping beer that reminds me of childhood for some strange reason.

I buy this beer on the occasions when I am broke. Which is often. This is a broken beer for all of us.

"To all of us who have failed yet still mow the lawn!", pours out some for my homies.

Looks golden. Smells like fosters. Tastes like fosters. Light body, a bit of carbonation. Overall, a typical adjunct lagers. Nothing extraordinary but not bad.

Very nice example of the AAL style. Had out of the bottle. Aroma is subtle, with cracker, white bread and grassy hops. Nice carbonation, very effervescent. Flavor was surprisingly fruity, with apple and grape mixed with cracker, bread, and earthy notes. An interesting contrast to the Stroh's I'd had just before.

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - crystal clear straw yellow color. Medium foam head fades rather quick leaving some glass lacing
Smell - Aroma is basically corn, musty or rusty basement, and some hops/yeast
Taste - Corn adjunct mostly. No skunk or off flavors. Extremely crisp and clean. Subtle sweetness and very subtle hop zing. Carbonation is high but not prickly.

Overall, there are tastier options for a BBQ, but at this price it is the most refreshing and drinkable.
I give this beer a B

Have always wanted to try this one - slightly disappointing but decent enough for what this beer is. Clear yellow color with no real lasting head and some good fizzy carbonation. Smells of malt and corn, tastes similarly along with some grain - basically like a typical AAL. Light mouthfeel, that slightly over-sweetened malt aftertaste just lingers and mars an otherwise decent cheap easy-to-drink beer.
