The Quest for the Best Cheap Beer in a Can continues, episode 9: Miller Lite
Miller Lite. Like when I reviewed Bud Light, it was one of these situations I knew I had to do, but wasn’t going to like doing. At all. But in the interest of theme of this series I had committed myself to doing, I was ready to take one for the DrunkSci team. Apparently it was a “great pilsner taste” and is “triple hops brewed” according to advertising on the can. Let’s see how this really holds up.
% Alcohol: 4.2
Price: $1.59/24 oz can = $0.80/12 oz. can
Color: Golden, had a thick head when poured initially, which was strange.
Aroma: Stale drunk piss from a Big 10 football stadium. Skunked, but with a slight floral scent to it.
First Sip: I think I might found something more foul than Bud Light. This is amazing. Hopelessly horrible. Severely watered down. My expectations were held up, this shite is pure detritus from bowels of a bovine with mad cow disease. In fact, I feel like brain tissue is sloughing off me from drinking this ungodly pile of hot, steamy horse manure.
Aftertaste: Stale water, if there was such a thing, it would be this. Is this what happens to bottled water after it goes past its expiration date (seriously does water expire??). For a beverage that claims to be “triple hops brewed” I have to taste a single hops in it.
Overall: Unbelievably, I think I have something worse than Bud Light. That is all. Consequently, um, pilsner?? More like pissner!
