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.

Yes, it is not "good" beer. But it is also extremely cheap, and very drinkable. Make sure it is cold; really cold. This is my beer of choice when I am doing yard work. Better than its competition.

Frankly if I go to an event where only AAL's are being served, I hope I can find this swimming in the bottom of the ice chest. The color is pale straw with a big but fleeting head that gives way to minimum lacing. The smell and taste are both dominated by adjuncts, but if cold enough the flavor is tolerable. The carbonation level is good and the beer does feel rich in your mouth. Overall one of the best in a generally poor class.

Served: 12 August 2014
Serving: 24oz can into pint glass

Appearance: Crystal clear gold color with massive carbonation coming from the bottom initially before slowing to a trickle. Nice one and a half finger white head that sticks around for a bit before collapsing into a sheen of bubbles. Minimal lacing.

Smell: Light and corny. Very sweet.

Taste: Very clean and sweet with big corn grainy notes. No hop flavor at all, as expected.

Mouthfeel: Huge bubbly carbonation gives this one some nice body in the tongue.

Overall: For an AAL this is actually pretty far up there for me- one of the best in the style. A very refreshing, unadulterated beer for weather when it's hotter than hell and you just want something quaffable. I would NEVER get this in a format other than a can considering the clear bottle.
