Most unethical brewing around, it may have been good in the 60s
Who knows I was not around, I once decided I liked this beer,
That was a mistake, I may have gotten 3 out of the 30 Twelve packs I got that was actually quality, the rest was complete tasteless garbage, Inconsistancy at its best. This beer is garbage you may as well be drinking anything else at this price, even coors banquet is leaps and bounds better than this rubbish, spend the extra dollar and enjoy something consistant.

L -- Pale straw color with an intense effervescence. Clear. Huge head quickly dissipates, minimal lacing. 3.25
A -- corn, grain,mild fruity aromas 3
T -- Bland, generic mass market lager taste 2.5
F -- The selling point of this beer. Lively carbonation and a light but not watery mouthfeel combine to make a very refreshing beer, that remains drinkable hours after opening. 4.25
O -- Tied with pbr for best widely available cheap beer 3.75

This beer is neither good or bad, it is the better of the miller products, there is nothing special here.

Straight out of the can from a 12-pack.

L- Extremely pale straw color. I normally don't like beers with this coloration, but I found this beer to be very visually appealing.

S- Unfortunately, it starts to fall off here. It smells better than coors, bud and Pabst, but unfortunately it still maintains the gross metallic grainy smell of cheap lagers.

T- It's neither good nor bad. Certainly not offensive, but not quite good either. Tastes like seltzer water flavored with grains and a very light bitterness on the back of the palette.

F- Very high in carbonation. I prefer it to the above mentioned alternatives.

O- It's very cheap, and beats most of the other beers in the price range. Overall, it just makes me wish I was drinking a better beer.

It's Miller as I remember it. A great American Pilsner . Excellent with brea and cheese or a sub sandwich. I first drank this in 1973. The champagne of beers! Crisp clean flavor. A bargain retro beer. I actually liked genuine draft better but they don't make it anymore

If you have any sort of gag reflex at all, I suggest you pass on this beer.
