Miller High Life

Six Pack of 16oz cans, less than $5, Publix supermarket, Villa Rica, GA.

Six Pack of 12oz Bottles, 3.89, Green’s Beverage, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA.

Very strange review this one. Essentially Miller High Life, is, at least on the face of it, everything I dislike in a beer. Light colored, no body and a distinct lack of taste (either hops or malt), a mass produced American macro with little or no appeal to those who enjoy quality beer…but…I keep on coming back to drink it.

One thing it does have is absolutely first-class drinkability in hot weather. Living in Atlanta this gives it a head start. In addition it’s cheap. Now, price isn’t something I’m desperately concerned with, and I’ll gladly pay enormous sums for good beer, but my philosophy is this; If the beer I’m drinking is a poor quality American, mass produced macro, then I might as well drink the cheapest since I’ll be wasting the smallest amount of cash!

This beer still hits the slumming spot for me and it serves as an excellent benchmark for me to judge the rest of my beers against. For what it is, and the style, it’s a good product.
