Ok. Here we go. I havenít had the high life since I was 15. And back then it truly
was touted as the "Champagne of Beers". Mostly bottled it held an upper middle class clientel. Back then the three
kings were Bud, High Life and Michelob.
Some of you can relate. Well lets get back to the rating. Pours a deep yellow classic pilsner color with a very white
head. Nose is nasty. Corn galore. Then
all of a sudden you take a sip and lo and
behold a contrast is at large. Light with
a bisquit malt running through. Iím not kidding. Who would have thought. Sure thereís a bit of corn in there. But by golly
this is not a bad brew.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2016 Medium body, corn and malts. Poured into tumbler, frothy white head and sparkly with small bubbles (hence the Miller High Life slogan making sense there). Abrupt finish.smoke,

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated from old notes. Dry with a fizzy, rapidly fading head. No sign of hops, but nothing offensive either beyond a faint graininess. Nothing much to talk about here. Call it "Beer X".

My go to summer daily drinking beer; I know, know.
When this Miller is very cold and in a glass bottle, and the temp outside is 100į, and I just finished some yard work, this beer makes it for me.

Poured from bottle (party - just had to retry). Aroma - gas. Pale appearance. Taste is a tribute to corn based pale ale that is the backbone to the macro market. But I have to admit - I wasnít disgusted by it and finished it without doing drain pour. Itís good to go back and reflect on the past to really appreciate the craft beer world today.

Quenching thatís it. Big bottle I think 40 oz. got me buzzed. Grains no hops clean but that is it. Not really drinking a beer just drinking some grain seltzer.

Can into a giant pilsner glass. Pale gold that everybody knows. Giant white head that fades in about a minute, as well as the carbonation. Lacing is spotty and odd.
Only detectable aroma is mold. Starts slightly acidic and finishes slightly sour. Has about as much flavor as water. I might add that this is my go to American cheap beer, but still.... itís cheap.

A rock-solid thirst quencher and the go-to beer for every post-bowling cool-down session. Most often enjoyed on tap. Anyone else missing High Life guy Windell Middlebrooks? Sorry to see him go so young.

Can - did not pour out of can to look at, aroma and taste just like the cheap pale lager you would think, sweet malt and corn, tasted a lot better 20 years ago in college - go figure! LOL

If you don a top hat, wear a monocle, and are looking for a cheap beer, this is the beer for you! The trademark clear bottle lets everyone know what you are drinking. It definitely lives up to the name of the Champagne of Beers! Smooth and crisp. Light on the carbonation. Light body. 9 out of 10 lawn mowers.
