2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
What can I say?
I sort of like this cheap stuff.
Granted, it’s not Heineken, but if you hold your nose with the back of your tounge and chase it with a sip of soda, it’s not so bad.
......Errr........I like the can.....
The commercials are good as well (except the ludicrous one which featured a bunch of drunk co-eds breathing "Beer Breath" into the camera as some sort of sacrifice to the "Beer gods".
The old magazine ads from the ’50’s are pretty amusing as well.
Overall, cheap stuff, but not really awful and certainly tolerable.
The can and slogan "champagne of beers" make it looks sort of "classy" in a faux way, even though it’s not.

I had this at Fridays. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste light, similar to the other mass produced American lagers. I thought this was so so. I could drink this again.

I know this is a low rate beer but I think it is underrated. Easy to drink, pretty bitter and tasty. Pours a light yellow in color and smells like nothing.

My second one of these in 10 years and im not any fonder of it. I try to like it but cant get past the adjuncts. Decently smooth & crisp and would be good at a sunday baseball game.

This is my lawn mower beer simply because it is very low cost and is slightly better than other mass commercial beer. No other reason to drink

Don’t let the low score fool you, this stuff is the bomb. They don’t claim it to be "The Champagne of Beers" just for S&Gs. Best consumed straight outs da’bottle during summer months. I prefer the 7oz pony bottles sold in 8-packs. Great for road trips. I recommend NOT drinking out of a glass, as the ability to smell the stuff is less than complimentary. Do not order at a bar, unless you’re cool with going home alone.
My boys and I make drinking this stuff a prerequisite whilst moving, as in relocating. Never has smashing your knuckles while caressing a 300lb sleeper-sofa thru a door jamb been so much fun. Makes driving a rented box truck a trip too. True story, we once lost a $1000 TV and merely giggled. Thank you High Life!
Give it a whirl, you can thank me later.

I actually used to drink this frequently at the baseball park. Can’t handle it now. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma is corn, grain, and a sweet taste. Light body.

To me this tastes almost exactly like pbr, maybe a little cleaner finish though. I have never and will never buy stuff like this but, if someone gives it to you for free at a social event why not? There is nothing good about it, but there is nothing terrible either. Its a step up from bud lite, coors, nat ice, or icehouse. I just feel bad for people that think ’high life’ is actually ’high end’...

I find this beer from a clear bottle to be just as good as water for clearing the palate. Makes me want to through an old lady around the double-wide, except I don’t have a double-wide.... or an old lady....

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can poured into a Pint glass, Best By: 11/25/13 Pours a light yellowy color, with almost no opacity. Fizzy, with a MASSIVE (overflowing) white head that lasts. The aroma is of grass and corn. Very light on taste, as is the goal. A hint of corn, medium sweetness, absolutely no bitterness or hops. Water like body, the mouthfeel is... water. It does it’s job perfectly, it’s an incredibly drinkable light beer that won’t overpower any other tastes you pair with it. You could drink a six pack in an hour if that’s what you were going for. My go to "in between" beer, for cleansing your palate, immediately after work, or for when you don’t want to go broke. It strikes me that those who say it offends them are TRYING to be "snobs".
