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.

You get what you pay for. I actually rather like this beer for a cheap option, and drink it semi-regularly, but I'm giving it an honest 2.5 overall rating here. It's not awful. It's not great. The taste and aroma are fairly mild and inoffensive. There's a little heft to the mouthfeel, but not much. It does look nice, which is probably the best thing going for it.

This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had the displeasure of drinking. It smells awful, it tastes like sewer water, and it looks just as bad(but if you actually drink it out of a bottle you’re a sucker). The only thing I give it points for is the feel not being too miserably thin, and the obvious low price. If this didn’t have the miller name attached though they’d mark probably 2 dollars off an already disturbingly cheap case at least.

Kill me. This beer is a hangover after one sip. No idea what god awful nonsense they fill this with, but WOW it's terrible. There's somehow both not enough and too much flavor. Too sweet. Not enough dark tones. No balance. Garbage. Scrap this brand and sell it for parts.

Look: Urine yellow with barely any white head, which only makes it look MORE like a bottle of piss.

Smell: The most generic "adjunct beer" smell possible. Sweet corn and malt.

Taste: Barely even there! A vague hint of cornbread at the back of your tongue after you swallow is all you get. Otherwise it's like drinking soda water.

Mouthfeel: Thin and highly carbonated. Again, like soda water.

Overall: At the very least, it doesn't taste or smell skunky like Sapporo or Stella Artois. But it's also incredibly boring and tasteless.

Pretty darn awful. Or is it the best?

I know that it remains popular, but it just doesn't do much for me.
