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.

look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

poured from a 12 oz can to a SA perfect pint glass

A- looks like movie beer, straw golden yellow, crystal clear and clean, frothy white head tons of carbonation

S- Sweet grains on the nose, a touch of lemon, a slight touch of banana. Musty or mold scent on the end.

T- Soapy water, boiled grains, lemon pledge, slighty offensive after taste.

M- light, highly carbonated, blah...

O- well, it sucks, typical AAl, tastes like corn water, smells like gym socks.

Drank this bad boy right from the can

The body is a clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Loads of visible carbonation. I drank mine from the can, but others at this backyard shindig poured theirs into a glass. The aroma is of corn and grains, maybe a little green apple. The flavor profile mimics the nose. Green apple skins, corn starch, and grains. Extremely bland, lacking any real flavors. Light-bodied, high carbonation. This is probably a little more palatable than others in its style, but it is still not very desireable.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours straw color like any other adjunct lager, with a bubbly head that dissipates quickly, but with some lacing. Smells of adjunct grain, especially corn, really sweet. Sweet malty taste dominates, probably from the corn used, but actually has taste unlike many adjuncts. This light bodied beer has full taste, can go down really easily, and is not over carbonated. Overall, an average beer, but better than most adjuncts.

One of my favorites! Retains head for a while compared to most cheap beers on the market.

Looks like usual as a cheap beer should. Goes down easy and doesn't make you look like a poon while holdin a bottle.

And it leaves a thick residue on the glass from all the lace.

Hail Fredrick Miller!!

Official beer of me. WORD!
