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.

This is the first beer I ever drank with my dad. I remember sitting on the river bank catching trout all day, and drinking this golden beauty while grilling steaks that night. If this brew is still around when my son comes of age, it will by his first drink with his dad too.

Other than the nestalgic priciple of it, this is my go to cheap beer. To tired from a hard day of work to grab a glass and pour? Simply grab a piece of the High Life. Now excuse me while I crack one open and relax :D

Drank from a 12 fluid ounces (.355 liters) bottle purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits, Somerville, MA
Served in a pint glass

You gotta love the classic bottle that "The Champagne of Beers" comes in. As for the beer, it started out with a very impressive appearance. The crystal clear, pale gold liquid was topped by a tight, cottony, bright white, one-finger crown. The head slowly faded to a thin film. Thick, clingy rings of lacing coated the entire glass.

Initially, the nose was respectable. Grainy malts and sweet corn notes were noticeable. Some dry, powdery, lager-like yeastiness. Semi-sweet. Touch of grassy hops. As the beer sat, the nose became much more muted. All I picked up were generic adjunct notes.

The flavor profile had more going on than did the nose. Raw, grainy, husky malts came through on the front end. Touch of grassy hops and corn. Crisp, bright and mildly lemony in the center. The husky grains made an appearance again in the finish. Touch of noble hops as well.

The liquid was super light and spritzy on the palate. Crisp and bubbly. Slightly creamy.

Miller High Life is an unoffensive and refreshing American adjunct lager that would be perfect at a summer cookout. Overall, a fairly decent beer.

Poured from 12oz can into 1liter stein

A- golden color almost hay/straw colored. Heavy foam almost milky in some way?

S- when really cold almost no smell, kinda veggy smell, corn etc. when the beer warms almost overpowering corn smell.

T- very light on the palate, not too much of flavor maybe a little metallic, cooked corn kinda taste, refreshing.

M- kinda milky thickness, overall enjoyable on a dry hot day here in New Mexico, when the beer warms all of the veg taste comes with a vengeance.

I just turned 21 about 2 months ago and have been experimenting with a ton of beers to find my own, this one for some reason is my go too budget beer. Good on a dry hot day and great with pizza. Haha not too bad but far from the best. Good if you are on a budget and want a quantity. 17.97 for a 30.
