Miller Genuine Draft Light 64

$3.65 for the 12 oz, clear glass bottle at BWW in Douglasville, GA, USA. Possibly the palest beer I have ever seen. Initial head is better than expected to be honest. Some lace. Apart from the disturbing color this pretty average. Light vegetal nose but barely recognizable as beer. Body is as expected but if you can taste much of ANYTHING you are a better man than me. Seltzer water would be my description. Funny stuff; imagine giving a 64 drinker a RIS for comparison of styles!!! I suppose it...

Milwaukee’s Best Light

$0.75 12 oz can from the bargain bucket at Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA. Lifeless pour with a head that looks good for about one minute (rocky and leaves some lace) but then inexplicably fades to nothing. Pale golden color. Not the lightest beer I have ever seen but lacks any semblance of body. No distinctive tastes here AT ALL. In a blind taste I think I may mistake this for carbonated water. There is an impossibly light bitterness in the finish but essentially this is not beer...

Miller Chill

I SPECIFICALLY went to my local Sports Bar in Villa Rica, GA, USA, to try this. Anyone visiting Villa Rica, GA should visit the Sports Cafe etc (yes, that's its name with the etc. added), just for the experience (however I cannot imagine why you WOULD be visiting Villa Rica). $3.50 a bottle, I tried a couple. Poured into an iced mug, this is what it is - no more, no less. There is a hint of citrus but I do not get the "salt" factor. Very good head is formed (at least in the short term) and it...

Olde English 800

22 oz bottle of the classic Malt liquor. On balance not horrific. OK, here's the deal. Presented to me by a non-BA, and more often than not I would simply reject this, but as I have not yet formally reviewed it, I thought I should go ahead and record my thoughts. Pour is actually quite good. A really nice head on top of the crystal clear, light yellow body. No skunk, just mild alcohol and corn in the nose. To be honest, considering the style I would say the aroma was above average. The head...

Miller High Life Light

Not at all bad - for what it is you understand! Typical adjunct in most respects, but slightly above average. Scores well in the "very, very hot summer" refreshing department, and is a pretty smooth drinking beer that lacks the real nastiness that most beers of its type have. No skunk and a decent thirst quencher. Of course, that's where the story begins and ends, but this does do well when compared to others of its type, especially in the Light/Lite category. Take it for what it is, and you...

Miller Genuine Draft

Of the scores of garbage adjunct macro lagers, this is one of the more drinkable and less offensive. It actually looks pretty good. It had some seriously deep color (relatively) and pours with a decent head and some lacing. After that it's pretty much downhill all the way with the usual problems associated with over-carbonation, extreme cold and general macro swillness, but at least it lacks some of the offensive excessive alcohol taste and nastiness. Stuck as I am so often, staring at a shelf...

Icehouse

Really just noting this for my consumption log rather than a review. I honestly have no idea whether I would be able to tell this beer from Miller Lite, Bud, Bud Light, Coors or any one of a hundred other macros. What can you say? Typical golden yellow, good looking pour, a head that disappears almost instantly, a refreshing "beer" drink that, unlike any quality brew, is probably enhanced by taking it down to Arctic temperatures. Aroma is indistinguishable to me and it tastes like cold,...

Miller Lite

Updated Review 01/08 === $2.00, 16oz serving, Buffalo Wild Wings, Douglasville, GA, USA. Light golden color, zero head, zero lace. Vegetal mild bitterness, essentially wet with no taste. Slightly gassy. What's the point? Original Review 07/04 === $2.00, large serving (22oz?), Smokey Bones, Restaurant & Grill, Douglasville, GA, USA. The problem here I think, is that once one has opened up one's horizons to quality beer, stuff like Miller Lite is hardly what one would consider to be "beer" at...

Red Dog

$4.15 for six-pack, Save-Rite supermarket, Villa Rica, GA, USA. On the plus side, $4.15 for a six-pack, you know what you're getting - not much, but it doesn't pretend to be much. You are also getting 5.00% ABV. On the down side, well - pours like piss, looks like piss, tastes like piss - might even be piss! Never mind, no more or less than I expected. There are scores of better crappy, macro alternatives (e.g. Miller High Life, Schlitz), turn to them first.

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...
