1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Thin and watery just as you would expect. No aroma to note and no real substance in the palate. Not much flavor. However, this beer is my guilty pleasure. I enjoy ths beer outside in front of a BBQ pit on a hot day. Its quantity over quality here.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Poured from bottle into pilsner glass. One of the better Macros; it’s actually not too terrible. Pours smooth with very decent head, golden-pale in appearence. There’s a reason they call it the champagne of beers, it is frothy. Strong hints of corn. Very light body with no hoppyness to speak of. Fizzy.
$8.49 for a 12 pack of bottles is an amazing bargain. For the price, not bad at all. Not a Yuengling or Sammy by any means but for a mainstream beer it drinks well.

Possibly the worst beer I’ve had outside of the extreme bargain brands. Any sort of taste this beer might have is immediately overshadowed by the repulsive amount of carbonation it boasts. This "champagne of beers" is more like the "sparkling grape juice spiked with cheap vodka" of beers.

stronger than average beer, smell not to appealing...a drink to get drunk and not so much for flavor.

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 have a lot on the overall for the beer’s appeal to me as the man’s beer. Like the campaign shows, I’d rather fix a broken window than troll a single’s bar.

I'll have a good, cheap 40 of "Thug Life" every now and again. Not that bad a taste, decent color... just a good American Standard.

Would be ok if not for the poor aftertaste. Save yourself and drink it ice cold out of the bottle if you drink it at all. I believe "Champagne of Beers" is a reference to the awful hangover you get from too much of this.

I open the bottle and this beer makes me just want to vomit because thats how it smells. Avoid the high life and go Lite anyday.
