I’m a big fan of watching movies for what they are, and I suppose I’ll extend this to beer. That’s why Miller Lite gets a 4.5 for drinkability. It’s like giving McDonald’s 4 stars for “eatability”. I mean, you know what you’re getting into when you drink it.
I had this last evening out of a solo cup (about to be flipped) poured from a vortex bottle that probably had a freshness date somewhere. Appearance was light, with little lacing, but decent head retention. Carbonation was solid and that kept the very light mouthfeel interesting while it went down and my teammates called out profanities at the opposing side. Smell and taste… eh, you don’t really come to Miller Lite for that. But there was little smell to speak of, and a very dry taste on the few hops that were present. Other than that, maybe corn? It’s like a beer french fry.
We won several games until the party transitioned to pong and Bud Light. That review’s on its way.
