    A good beer, consumed in moderation, out of a can or tapper. It will grow on you, then after about 3 or 4 it'll turn on you. It has a VERY high carbonation, which is probably covering up the skunky flavor, but I still have one from time to time. I'm pretty sure the beer-farts were invented by High Life

    Never drink Miller High Life out of the bottle! The clear bottle allows light to spoil the beer, which is often the case with this (and any other beers in clear or green bottles). Drink this beer out of a can or even better, drink it on tap, if you luck up and find that. Miller High Life is a classic, and the first beer I drank back in February 1996, when I began my beer drinking hobby (some might say habit, or addiction- but, I only average one a day, so it's a good habit). This product has a thick white head and a clear yellow and bubbly appearance. It's got a full and crisp taste. Miller High Life starts off rather harsh, but if one can get past that, and I certainly can, it finishes very pleasant. I have a lot of respect for this beer and enjoy if from time to time. Yes, it's value priced. But, it holds its own against other, much costlier ones (like Coors or Budweiser, for instance). A classic! Cool label, too. RJT

    As mass produced American beers go this is middle of the road, which rates a 2. A perfectly good thirst quencher on a hot summer day, but that's all.

    I think it is an AWESOME beer but really the day after(headaches) are really bad and last all day long.

    I shamefully like this beer. Why? I really couldn't tell ya. It has more complexicity to the flavor than your typical macro brew adjunction lager. No nasty aftertaste like miller lite or budweiser. Smooth, clean finish, a flavor not a shallow as many would assume. Other than maltliquor this my pick for cheap beer. P.S. forget anything I've ever said about coors original.

    When offered Miller Lite versus Miller High Life, I will choose High Life a.k.a. "the Champagne of Beers." It has a lower alcohol content and has more carbonation, but I think the taste is smoother and milder than Miller Lite. It is not a good beer by any means though!

    Hello there fellow beer connoisseur's, I'm here to clarify a few things. FIRST- Miller High Life is actually Miller's flagship beer. Many will incorrectly assume the "MGD" is their premier beer, though they are incorrect. SECOND- Many also assume that price = quality, which is an obvious misnomer. Miller High Life is the HIGHEST quality beer that is sold in <22oz sizes. THIRD- Errol Morris, a man's man is the voice in possibly the greatest commercial series of all time; Miller High Life's "High Life Man". Drink well, drink Miller High Life

    It's fine, like most American beers, light, sometimes light on taste. No complaints.

    Take a lot of crap for loving this beer, at least I usually don't have to worry about friends coming over and drinking all my beer. Has a unique flavor that is absolutely the best out of the bottle on a hot summer day. Is the most refreshing beer I know of. Guess it goes back to the younger years when you either drank Bud or Miller and if you were totally broke Old Milwaukee or Geobels. Getting harder to find in finer establishments though. Have drank my share of Bud products but have a hard time choking those over advertised beers down these days.

    High Life is the best beer for the money hands down. It is highly underrated by most. Admittedly, this is a beer that people seem to love or hate (not to many people think it is an OK beer). It is definitely not like most micro brews or imports in style or taste, but it is very good compared to other American style pilsners.

    Cheap swill with an expensive sounding name. It's not fit for rinsing pigs covered in shit.

    I love Miller High Life. It is the beer I buy most often. It has a distinctive flavor, a cereal taste, and is delicious out of any container. The girl in the moon is one of America's classic logos. Interestingly, MHL and MGD are the same recipe brewed the same way but MHL is pasteurized and MGD is not. Miller keeps the price down on MHL, which only endears it more to consumers like me.

    I'm not a beer snob, so I have no problem drinking some cheaper beer now and then. The only thing is that most beers made by Miller have a little bit of a strange aftertaste that I don't like. If I'm drinking cheap mass produced domestic beer (which I usually am), I prefer something made by Anheuser-Busch.

    Good in bottles, one star less in cans. Bottled only if stored cold and out of the light.  Like North American Corona.  A bit more hops and less sweet than Bud.

    Only in the pony bottles! We used to buy these so we could go to the parks and such and drind could hide the little bottles easily. And it didn't taste too bad.

    Yum, it still comes in clear bottles, and can be tasty on a hot day, when there is no other beer available.

    I'll take this beer over any of the light beers and most of the regular old line domestics.

    Average tasting beer. Very light, very malty with slight hops flavor. Goes down easy, is inexpensive and is a good "getting drunk" beer. Average all around.

    Yeah, I gave it 4 stars. That wasn't a mistake. If I'm in charge of bringing beer to your next SuperBowl party, you can count on drinking some High Life.

    i dont know why most of you guys seem to hate this beer. i thought it was actually good. it was kind of bitter, but thats how i like it. and it doesnt taste flat; it really stimulatres your taste buds. but i do agree, dont drink it warm.

    The best way to describe this beer is in the commercials where the guy is taking all the Miller High Life out of stores, bars, and other places because they charge too much money. Well notice how nobody is stopping the guy from taking the High Life out of their place of business? I wouldn't stop him either. You can have that crap. Very bitter, harsh tasting beer.

    I like this beer as well as any, ice cold is the best. I can't understand why people like Corona any better, seems similar to me, but I don't really note a lot of difference among light lager beers anyway. Can't beat the beer for the price, IMO.

    I've consumed exactly two...and only two alcolholic beverages in my life. The first one was a can of Budweiser approximately three years ago...and the other was a small bottle of Miller High Life. Here is my scientific analysis of the two alcoholic beverages and the physiological effects of alcohol in general: The Budweiser tasted somewhat like mineral water with a slight off-taste of barley. It wasn't bad tasting, but there certainly wasn't anything enticing or great about the taste either. Within minutes, I could literally feel the alcohol spreading throughout my entire body, through the veins, like a cold, metallic substance. Within a half hour I noticed that I felt somewhat relaxed and it seemed like my brain/thought processes slowed an iota -just noticeably. I certainly wasn't "drunk" after one drink but I did notice the effects, though they were minimal. The taste of the Miller High Life was even much less to my liking than the Budweiser. It was much stronger than the Budweiser -... Read more

    I ain't gonna lie, I drink the shit out of this stuff. It is light, sweet, & cheap.

    I don't care if it is the "champagne of beers". Its still a pretty crappy brew. back in the day, this stuff was top shelf, but look at it now. Budwieser has been out just as long and was also a top seller. My opinion is that people back then drank what they could get. There weren't many choices back then, therefore, I think whatever was shipped to the local stores and bars was being bought by the truckload. Keep in mind, people didn't have imports and the type of microbrews we have now. A lot of things during that time were crappy if it wasn't home made, think about it.

    When we were teenagers, me and my cronies met the Ramones a few times when they performed in NJ, and we noticed that they seemed to drink Miller beer. Hence, that's what we drank (imitation being the sincerest form of flattery). When we got good and drunk, which was often in those days, we'd take the empty Miller 6-pack cartons, put them on our heads, and call ourselves the "Miller-heads." Sort of our inebriated, plebeian version of the Skull and Bones Society, I guess. Being young and alcoholic sounds like great fun, no? (Not...)

    Miller High Life is an American Classic. The Champagne of Beers since 1903. Originally came in mini champagne bottles. The recipe has never changed on this once premium beer. It is sad that price discounting moved this brand into the cheap section in the 70's. Unbelievably good tasting for what you have to shell out to get it. Stock up now before someone gets wise and starts to raise the price.

    Just trying to remember the taste makes me sick. I had this once and every time I have one I can never finish it. They call it the champagne of beers but its more like the champagne of sh*t!

    Headache in a can. Made the mistake of buying a case of 16oz cans for a party. The hangover was so bad, my hair hurt the next day. (No, I didn't drink the whole case by myself.)

    a good beer to drink sometimes. a little bit more carbonated than Bud or the other domestics. the High Life has a classier bottle shape.

    This is a good cheap beer, the quality is high for the price. The taste is just average, it's not a very crisp and refreshing beer but it's a good session beer. Also it's the official beer of Jackass The Movie.

    Miller Lite is my favorite, but I will drink High Life if there is nothing else available. The colder it gets, the better it tastes, but if gets warm as you drink it, it is some very very nasty beer.
