COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Miller High Life, the "champagne of beers," dates to 1903. Miller High Life is a classic American-style lager recognized for its consistently crisp, smooth taste and iconic clear-glass bottle. Miller High Life embraces its rich heritage and is known by its drinkers as an authentic, unpretentious beer. As the best beer value in America, we encourage beer drinkers to "Take Back the High Life."

Such a good, palatable beer. Consistently good. I can always count on a 6 pack of High Life after work to relax. Probably the best commercialized lager of this style.

Light retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet corn and cereal. Tastes of malt and sweet corn. No aftertaste. Not offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice easy drinking pale lager from Miller. Who didnít enjoy this when in college? But mainly grain on the nose and palate without much else.

Ah yeah, the old "High Life." The champagne of beers. Here we go. There has been a variety of times this has been poured into pint glasses and pilseners and all of the time, its always the same. The appearance was a light golden yellow clear color with carbonation rising faster than a speeding bullet (ah, looks like champagne). Anyways, the less than a fingerís worth of white foamy head quickly dies and leaves some lacing that is all over the place and slides right into the body as the beer goes down. The smell was mostly over cooked sweetened corn. The taste was mainly the same with adding a terribly dry element to the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat extremely light and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation tends to assault my mouth fairly harsh. Overall, well, it wants to be called the "champagne of beers" and since champagne is over-rated, hey why not.

OK, hereís the story. My significant other bought a 40 oz bottle of this brew to boil up some fresh shrimp at the beach and I just had to give it a taste. Truth be told, this one of my favorite beers when I was in high school. Now it just presents itself as another boring pale lager with plenty of sweet corn flavors. Suggest you serve this one at 33 degrees. It really is disgusting at room temperature.

This is basically not beer, as it is full of maize and rice most likely. I donít want to spend time debating this, it is quite dreadful, but I have fond memories of drinking this at a baseball game and I just want to praise the beer makers for the look of the bottle, the label and the iconic name. But Iíd rather look at it than drink it. Not available in Norway.

Transfer from BA review on 3-13-12 - Poured from can into pint glass Appearance ĖPours a medium golden color with a big white head. Big carbonation bubbles could be seen coming up through the brew. The head faded very fast leaving no lacing. Smell Ė Nothing but corn here. Taste Ė The taste is much of the same in the nose. Corn mainly, although there is a slight bit of citrus hop flavor that comes in at the end of the taste. Mouthfeel Ė Thinner body and lots of carbonation. Easy to drink and good for the style. Overall Ė Since I paid $1.50 for 32 oz. what should I expect? Slightly subpar in comparison to the standard American adjunct lager.

Pours a pale, transparent straw yellow color, with a fizzy/foamy white head. The aroma is the expected grassy, musty hops over a lightly sweet malt base. The flavor is largely driven by sweet, grainy malts and a bit of a sweet corn character, although the dull, musty hops can be identified as well. As with most in this style, the light body and fizzy carbonation help this one go down easy, but it has more substance/body than others. In this regard, this beer is not much different than the other mass-produced adjunct lagers, but it doesnít come across as so watery and bland as others. Overall, its a fine beer to wash down a hot dog or any other situation where you just need a dumb beer, but itís certainly not something to crave and savor.

Poured a clear golden yellow from a can that I believe held a gallon or two. I kept pouring and if never ended. Three fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma seems sweet corn. Flavor is very sweet. Medium bodied. Two sweet for a lawnmower beer. Oh well.

Decent beer at its price point. Keep it at the house for the after yardwork or you donít want to drink your retirement fund beer. Itís not going to wow you but itís still refreshing when cold and beats Budwiser hands down
