Listed as a Vienna lager, but it really does drink like a really good high gravity malt liquor. Smooth, a bit of boozy residual sweetness comes through but doesn’t linger for long after.

cmonster (979) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours clear orange with a short head. Minimal retention and lace. Nose of corn malt and some heat. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation and a malty mid-sweet blah finish.

Transfer from BA review on 2-28-14- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a crystal clear deeper amber color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades rather fast to leave the tiniest level of fizzy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is sweeter overall with aromas of caramel and toffee as well as some lighter hints of a more peach and apricot fruit nature. With these aromas are some quite light oaky and woodsy aromas as well as a bit of a doughy smell. Taste – The taste begins a lightly roasted and drier flavor with some notes of a fruit nature of apricot and peach. These fruits are quite light with them being complemented by a very light caramel as well, bringing a lighter level of sweetness to the brew overall. While upfront the taste is on the slightly crisper side, as the flavor advances other flavors of a more oaky and bourbon flavor begin coming to the tongue as well, taking away from the crispness. The oak and bourbon flavors are rather decent, but unfortunately they are not the only flavors that come to the tongue at this time. Some more grainy and other more astringent flavors with some medicine like tastes as well as a bit of hay and grass come to the tongue. With the advent of the bourbon, oak, medicine and hay that come to the tongue, one is left with a slightly none-complimentary and off flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer on the thinner side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the medium to higher side. Overall the feel was decent, as it was nice of the crisper tastes of the beer upfront, all while not over accentuating some of the more off flavors of the brew that come more toward the end of the taste. Overall – Really nothing too spectacular here in my opinion. The bourbon flavors decent, but with the off flavors that accompany them, it really pulls away from the quality of the brew.

Pours a clear gold and nice frothy Head. Aroma. Is sweet corn malts and a very slight caramel note and slight. Citrus note. Taste follows the aroma with a medium Mouth feel. Not bad really for a macro brew I’m actually Impressed

I’ve never rated beer before, but Miller Fortune is the BEST I’ve ever consumed. Most beer after awhile makes one gag at its aroma to the point you don’t want to drink beer anymore. So, I turned to wine. But a friend offered a Miller Fortune, I was skeptical, but I tried it. I’ve been hooked ever since. The taste is smooth, inviting and just plain yummy. Please continue supplying my local stores and I hope to see it in most restaurants very SOON! Well Done Miller!

Miller has something going on with this brew. Smooth, Strong and Cheap just like I like my women. No, really this beer is priced well, and truly is very smooth to the palate. Fortune is a nice everyday brew to come home to after a hard day of work.

berkshirejohn (4576) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
12oz bottle from a Tops store in Buffalo, NY. Golden amber with a thin white head and moderate carbonation; grainy aroma; rough corn syrup taste; and an industrial finish. Not good, despite the cool looking bottle - or perhaps because all the money went on marketing, and the bottle, rather than the contents.

From the bottle...surprisingly flavorful for a macro...not a favorite, but a pleasure nonetheless

Foxbush (1283) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2014
12 oz This was enjoyed on the Jackson River near Covington, Virginia. This lager poured a clear golden color with a lingering head. The aroma was of light caramel malts. The medium body lager had average carbonation. This is an interesting lager with higher than normal ABV. The finish was crisp with some bitterness.

Well... It doesn’t say good fortune. Saying this is better than others with Miller on the label air sayin much. Not offensive...unless you make the mistake of taking more than 5 minutes to drink and allow to warm. Blech...
