czlowiekwiadro (828) - POLAND - JUN 13, 2014
zapach lekki, dość przyjemny - zioła z chmielu i lekkie mleko/śmietanka. kolor złoty, przejrzysty, piana mierna. w smaku pełne, bardzo karmelowe, lekko palone. da się wyczuć posmak śmietany co ciekawie łączy się ze słodyczą i karmelowością. goryczka niska, ale dość przyjemna. trochę zbyt nasycone

Golden draft pour at tikis in Honolulu. White head. A decent chuggable and kind of sweet lager. It was served freezing and that was great

Pours pale yellow with a bobbly white head. Corn and some bready malt in the nose and flavor. Quite bland.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle from Valley Farm. Medium golden in color. Sweet grain aroma. Some corn as well. Crisp and grainy. Decent lager. Kind of reminds me of Lucky from the 90s.

Had original beer "Eh, brah, I got beer in my ear..", poured golden and formed huge white foamy head. Aroma of malted corn, light ocean water hops. Flavour much of the same, ends sweet, yet quaffably fresh. Too much will give you a tremendous headache. About $3.99 a sixer, as I recall.

riversideAK (6259) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2010
22oz bottle for $1.95. Nice. Nose is corny, lightly sweet, some sugar, grain. Just rather sweet and pale lagery. Almost like a different PBR in a sense. Pours golden, thin head leaves quickly. Flavor has corn, grainy malt, sweetness, light crispness in the finish. Not much flavor, standard Miller product flavors here. Thin light body, crisp, thirst quenching. It is what it is. I am not morally opposed to pale lager so my rating might be a little high, but it when looked at within style guidelines it was not that bad really.

Clear yellow pour, fizzy white head. Grain, sweetness, light fruit, and a touch of hops. Very light and non offensive. Actually not terrible, just really easy drinking. Didnt even notice this... number 1600.

22 ounce bottle from Safeway in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii. Medium golden color, grainy aroma reminiscent of old time regional lagers, very foamy slighty off-white head, sweet flavor with slight soapiness, not much trace of hops. I broke my boycott of all beers brewed by Miller to try this beer and I dont know if it really was worth it. Not unpleasant but nothing to attract a retry. Unfortunately, I didnt encounter the draft version (which apparently isnt made at a Miller plant) during my Hawaiian vacation. If Im lucky enough to go back someday and can find the draft version, Ill revisit this rating.
