Sampled at an esbls tasting. Lemonade looking. No foam. Smells like lemonade. Artificial sweetening flavors dominates. Funky lemonade. That sweetener ruins any hope this had.

Ah yes, the five classic ingredients of beer: water, malt, hops, yeast, and sucralose. Interesting in that this can be considered a beer. In fact, I wasn’t aware that any beer or other malt beverage could be as low in alcohol as 2.8% and NOT be considered a non-alcoholic beer. Even as a thirst-quencher this stuff is seriously lacking any admirable qualities. It’s just pissy and rancid.

Purchased a single of this at a very pricey $1.17. I believe this to be of the "Summer 2011" vintage. Poured into a tulip glass at roughly 40 degrees, just above when the mountains would have turned blue.
A - Honestly, it doesn’t look terrible. Pale yellow body with a soapy white head that stuck around for a bit. Its slightly cloudy and maybe a shade or two darker than most AAL’s.
S - Citrus scented Lysol. Well not exactly lysol, more like the discount generic brand that you would find on the bottom shelf for a dollar less. The robust chemical nose is followed out by the dryness of pool chlorine tablets. A dash of sweet corn to round it all out.
T - My initial reaction was, and I quote "Eughhugh". Incredibly sweet and artificial lemonade flavor. Its like what would you get if you made lemonade and added way to much sugar. Only instead of using sugar, you used splenda. And then spiked the lemonade with corn and hatred. An odd aftertaste to say the least.
O - I normally don’t bash macro lagers, because the product they produce is so consistent and precise. But there was a reason why this beverage was pulled. I could polish off a few MGD’s. This is a straight drain pour.

12 oz. bottle- Pours a wonderful pale yellow with a soapy thin head. The aroma is lemon pledge, excellent. The taste is an excellent lemon flavor followed by cleaning solution and diet lemon lime soda for complexity. The body is thin, carbonation is soft and not in your face. Overall a wonderful beer that matches my top five beers (Avery Mephistopheles, Big sky Ivan the terrible, Stone IRS, Delirium tremens, and Westvelteren 12), too bad it is discontinued.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker because that is all it deserves. Pours a bright neon yellow. Like lemonheads candy. Almost no head but what is there is bright white and dissipates almost immediately. Not much to speak of in way of aroma. Kinda smells like lemonheads. Taste is light sweet. Tastes like Splenda. Light bodied with a thin texture. Flat carbonation and zero finish. Overall, it’s pretty bad even for what it is. That said, it actually has taste, compared to regular MGD 64. Would this have rated higher had I not just drank a glass of Bells Expedition Stout? Probably not. But at $6.99 a 12-pack on the disco rack, I’ll drink it.

I read that Miller is discontinuing MGD Light 64 Lemonade. The bar I work at had a few bottles so decided to try one for a shift drink. Saying it had a wet rag aroma may be too kind, cloudy yellow body, bone white foam. I knew this was going to be a stinker of a beer, but damn this wasn’t even a thirst quencher. Disjointed flavors, some lemon coming through. It basically tasted like a jungle juice concoction from stale beer, and Wylers cheap ass lemonade powder mix. It’s not going to be around much longer, just let it die on the vine. AVOID!

12 oz bottle into flute. Expired on July 18. Hopefully that won’t detract from the quality of this fine fine brew. Pours a hazy lemonade-yellow hue with a nice-sized crackling white head with good retention; collapses into a collar and blanket; even leaves some lace! Aroma consists of lemons, corn, a whiff of vomit. Taste is all sweet and sugary, grainy. Tastes like a diet Sprite with a faint beery undertone. Highly carbonated and I can still taste that sucralose, dammit. There’s no way I could drink more than one of these. What am I going to do with the rest of this 12-pack? Free beer up for grabs! Anybody? Hello, anybody out there? Hello? Is this thing on?

this wasnt horrible. the lemon flavour hid the gross pale sour malt flavour one usually gets from these beers. kind of refreshing actually.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is light citrus. Flavor is artificial sweetener and water. You’d do better to pour a glass of water dump in the Splenda and a lemon.

How many ways can one say a beer sucks? I don’t mean to be unhelpful in this review, but damn! Tastes like fizzy unsweetened lemonade mixed with stale lager. I mean this is really terrible.
