kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a nice amber color with a white head that was gone very quickly. Aroma is typical adjunct lager with the addition of some kind of artificial sweet smell. Taste is ok until you get to that weird sweetness. Good body for a lager. Overall this is a little tough to finish (16 oz can ). Wouldnít get this ever again.

Been sitting in the back of the fridge for a while after it was on a 99 cent rack at Antioch - looking for the tick by style. Very clear yellowish orange pour. Off white head with some streaky lace. 4 Corn and earth in the nose. Strong basement smells. Taste is bland; earth, corn, some light fruit. Yeast is a bit tangy. Medium bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes short and rough. Shrug? Glad not reliant on malt liquor in my life. 9.5

OK, so itís a macro, but give it a fair shake. Pours clear, pale amber with a thick but effervescent eggshell head - not impressive, but not off-putting. Aroma is on the weak side, malty and a little fruity. Flavor is passable, malty, fruity, a bit sweet. Smooth texture has average body and just a little fizz. Well, had to try it.

ordybill (539) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a real malty smell, OK smelling not great. Appearance- A dark amber color with a small white head. Taste- A corn and malt flavor that was pretty good. Palate- A medium bodied, highly carbonated beer with a creamy texture Overall- Not a world class brew, then again it wasnít brewed to be, it is an inexpensive session beer that has a high ABV. You get what you pay for and this is great for tailgating.

Pours a beautiful almost amber color. Pretty thick poofy off white head, quite a shocker. It looks inviting.

Aroma is a little metallic, a little hoppy. A little floral, also a little alcohol.

Taste is a little stout. I can certainly taste the alcohol in it. I can also taste some apple. Just took a sip, I think I could taste some grape. Interesting taste.

Mouthfeel is light. Taste doesnít linger, goes down easy. Perhaps too easy. Maybe slightly filmy aftertaste, also metallic.

Overall, itís pretty good. Not something I would grab again. Perhaps a little too much alcohol for my liking. I keep adjusting my ratings, because I really donít know how I feel about it. Itís worth a try.

ffbot (26) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pours a wonderful golden color with a soapy head that if you blink youíll miss with how fast it disappears. No lacing on the glass at all. Smell is nothing special, some sweetness, some skunkiness. Tasting follows the smell, no alcohol taste, some sweetness there. I had it not as cold as usual so I may be tasting more of the beer than they "intended". No lingering taste or after taste makes it easy to drink. Itís nothing to celebrate, but I might get it again if it was cheap.

shanoknowsfood (63) - Hawaii, USA - MAR 30, 2015
UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 Bottle from my neighbor. Not the worst Miller beer Iíve had. But still swill. If you have a really vivid imagination, you can just think youíre drinking a chocolaty bock...which it does resemble, on the tongue...but once it hits the palate that all changes. Made me feel pretty good, though.

Bottle->shaker. Clear blonde with big frothy white head. A: lager grains and malt, grass, hint of peat. T: mild, with malt, spice. Not nearly as bad as I expected.

Appearance - dark? not sure , I drink it from the bottle Taste - Very Good , Very drinkable, not really filling or sickening after 2-3 Donít let the 6.9% scare you, itís a steady buzz like all beer (Should) be. If youíre an American light beer lover, itís not for you - It tastes like beer. Only 2 complaints - 1. Dark packaging color - when looking for it in a store cooler itís invisible. 2. All 3 local stores stopped selling it???

You know you may be in denial about your drinking problem when you find yourself in a Shell station around midnight and youíre grabbing a 24oz can of something you wouldnít buy unless you were desperate, and the choices were this or Corona (...and Iíd rather drink my own fucking piss than that horrible Mexican skunk shit) so thatís how we got here. Anyway, yeah so this pours an orange gold, medium whitish head, actually decent retention and some lacing. Nose is kind of caramelized corn sugar and some malt, candy like, touch metallic. Mouth is medium bodied, mildly sweet, some caramel, sponge cake, corn, and finishes a touch tart on the fadeaway. I hate to say it... because I am certainly not a Miller fan or for that matter been much of a ímalt liquorí drinker since my high school days 25+ years ago, smoking herb and hanging out in the park... but this is actually not bad. Way better than Colt 45, or OE, St. Ideís, Crazy Horse etc.

Nice amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is corn and cereal grains. Taste is a little sweet, cereal grain. little malt aftertaste.
