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.

Out of all the American macro lagers, miller high life is one of the better ones. Very smooth and easy to drink with no harshness what so ever. Some yeast notes but not as much as I like. The over all taste is bread/cracker like. There is some old Apple juice like flavor that i get with all American lagers. Very little bitterness and mildly sweet. Faint canned vegetable flavor but its very unoticable. Overall very drinkable and smooth. You could easily drink this at a family bbq or gathering without worry. I think this is a good afterwork beer. Not a beer I would buy all the time but a decent stand by. I would take this over budweiser any day!

Fairly typical mass produced beer. However it brings back memories of travelling to the USA with my father and this is his beer of choice to buy down there as its not sold in Canada. Great refreshing "chugging" beer

Golden filtered with a little carbonation and 4 fingers of off white head.

Smells of pale malts, honey, grass, and aspirin.

Tastes like pale malts, and pizza dough with very little hops on the end.

Light, smooth body, with little carbonation.

Got at LCBO, drinking on Lake Muskoka, May 4th, 2018. Better than Labatt Blue.

I drank this beer back in college in the 1960's. It was decent then, and it is decent now. I know it is fashionable to bash American Lager, and rightfully so. However, I can pick up a 30 pack at the liquor store two blocks from my house for $17.99 American. For a lawn-mower, mass quantity beer for a professional alcoholic, it's hard to beat for the taste and the price.

I really think many that review this beer give it lower marks because they think it's not cool to drink an 'old' beer. SOOO many people think higher price = better... just not true. Don't be a follower. This is just a good, drinkable beer. As always, better in a bottle, but don't let light get to the clear bottles.

Okay so I bleed Red, White and Blue! To be honest this is one my favorites AAL! The taste is of corn, slight malt and grains. Light carbonation and corn after taste which I love, LOL. Definitely 100% American. Sorry if I seem a little too patriotic. That's just how I am. In NJ you can get a case of (12) of 32 oz tall boys for $14 before taxes. Can you really ask for more than that. I truly love MHL and AAL beers, especially those made here in the USA. Pick up a case if you can, you'll enjoy it! God bless America and MHL!

Drank from 12 ounce glass bottle. Ratings are done based on this style of beer.

Look - The clear slender bottle looks great. Labels are nice with a bit of pseudo-classiness. Beer is a pale golden color with lots of visible carbonation. Creates a thick pillowy white head.

Smell - Slight grain odor, but otherwise very neutral with not much going on.

Taste - Mild malt tones with a bit of corn sweetness and hints of rice. Par for the course in the style.

Feel - Thin with far too much carbonation. Lives up to the tagline of "Champagne of Beers," as far as its bubbly nature is concerned.

Overall - It's extreme carbonation gives it an interesting character, and it's great looks make it more appealing from the shelf than other macrobrews.
