Can. Clear pale yellow with small white head. Flavour is malt, sweet and watery. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle. It pours a clear, pale golden body and a small white head. The aroma is very corn like, cheap tortilla chips I think. Some grassy, fruity notes. Thin on the palate, nice carbonation. The flavor is equally bad as the aroma, even the bitterness is missing almost completely. Rather crappy finish. Drain pour. 130808 jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2010
What is there to say? It’s the "Champagne of beers." That means it’s good, right? Oh, wait, it’s just a silly marketing ploy. Nevermind. This is a drain pour. Rated 11/22/2000 brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: High Life pours a perfectly clear, light golden color. There are plenty of tiny bubbles and a very fluffy white head. Which I always expect from the champagne of beers.
S: I usually don’t expect too much when having an adjunct lager, and most of the time don’t really even want to smell it. This beer has a very metallic smell along with some corn. It’s not good, but it’s not as bad as many.
T: Like the nose, there is a metallic character to this beer, at least initially. After that passes, there is a mix of actual grain/malt and corn. It again makes for a sensation that is not wonderful but not terrible either.
M: Probably my favorite part about High Life is the very effervescent feel of it on the tongue.
D: It’s drinkable in the sense that AB advertises Bud Light to be: it’s basically water. The flavors are very watered down, but that’s what I expected. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Reminiscent of an Oly. Very faintly reminiscent. It’s better than water and any of the light so-called beers. Although in a food situation, I just might choose water. Might go well with chili, though. The Lady in the Moon is still on the cans. Trip down memory lane for those who can recall seeing the lady on the metal roadside signs. Damned if I don’t think I can detect hops! Could be wrong.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Thanks Tom L. Indian version, 5%. Clear yellow. Grains, acetaldehyde, some corn, vegetal, sweetish, bitterish, light-bodied. imdownthepub (14553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2006
Bottled, 500ml. Yellow, highly carbonated, white head. Another chance to experience the taste of an American Macro, and boy is this bad. A roughish sweetcorn type flavour covers the tongue with the cardboardy flavour of CO2 added to this is a tinny sweet perfume note. I try not to be harsh, but this is really bad. djd07 (14500) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2007 pours a very light golden color and has a very light head. has an overbearing taste of corn like other cheap pale lagers but is one of the better cheap beers.
