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.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Shaker pint glass, "Best By" date "FEB1819".

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, light golden color with one-finger white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is heavy lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, sweet sugar and corn husk, faint to the nose.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet sugar and bread then corn, the hops are extremely faint.

PALATE: light body and medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a classic lawnmower beer, one of the first beers I ever had with my buddies in high school during my misspent youth, I did not really care what it tasted like, it was beer and I was not allowed to have it, stay in school kids!

Pretty much a watery, but fortunately bubbly, lightweight beer. Easy enough to drink, but yeah. There are plenty of better lightweight beers out there. 2017/12/20

look: 1.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Look: Pale, golden, clear lacklustre colour
Low density head that disappears in seconds
Intense carbonation when first poured that quickly dissipates into nothing

Smell: Faint Malty, metallic

Taste: Slight Metallic, watery not much body or flavour, grain, bread, very faint sweetness as beer warms up

Feel: Watery with almost no body

Overall: Very light tasting beer that is extremely easy to drink. If your looking for something to drink a lot of in a short period of time this is a good choice. Not a bad beer for what its trying to be which is a smooth easy drinking beer. Better head retention and density is an area of improvement for this beer.

Perfectly fine AAL. Tastes like grain, not overly sweet for the style nor is it particularly hoppy. Cheap and drinkable, better than bud and most other beers of the style.

Bad bottle choice Because clear glasses skunk faster, but what do I know. I am tasting some mild corn, a little watery, faint hops. Beer Advocate says that a C score is poor but I think a C score is fair & not poor, but that's just my opinion. Cheers! C

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.
