Miller Chill


Just call me Lee Harvey from now on because I'm apparently the official patsy of the Beer Crusaders. I reviewed Corona, I reviewed Bud Light with Lime, so what do my fellow authors demand I do? Review Miller Chill. Apparently I work for a democratic site as we took a vote and I lost. That being said, I am currently planning my coup to overthrow the Beer Crusade authorities and take my rightful place as the king.

Miller Chill comes in at a low 4.2%abv. And without a high abv, what's the point in drinking it? I tried it a couple of years ago, when it still contained salt and it was disgusting. This go round wasn't as bad, but it certainly wasn't good. I tried the brew while sitting on my in laws patio, so my wife and both my mother in law and father in law gave it a try too. For the record, my wife hates beer and she thought Miller Chill was drinkable because it had no taste. My mother in law thought I should try mixing it with lemonade to give it flavor and my father in law (a beer aficionado that I aspire to be) described it as tasteless with a citrusy after taste. Problem is, we all agreed that the after taste sure as heck wasn't lime, so I'm not sure what it was.

If you're up for a summer beer, this isn't the beer for you. Stick to the classics and just keep walking right on past the Miller Chill case, unless of course its 105 degrees out and the store is out of water and you're really thirsty. Check that, under those circumstances I'd rather pull a Ron Burgundy and drink milk...

I'm giving Miller Chill a .5 rating and will never buy this beer again. I'm actually thinking of building a small memorial to the $8 I sacrificed to buy this banal beverage.

Please note the mysterious "F" asked that the Miller Chill be reviewed after Pale Ale Guy's last post (see comments on Bud Light Lime). So it wasn't the co-authors asking him to review, just his fans.

Do I hear any requests for Bud Chelada? It is Bud + Clamato. Clamato is clam juice + tomato juice. Sounds like a delicious summertime treat to me...

As a devoted reader of Beer Crusade, I would love it if Pale Ale Guy reviewed Bud Chelada. I've always wondered what it tastes like, but never mustered up the nerve to try.

So consider this a request- I'm sure it would make for a great blog post, and who knows, maybe it tastes as great as it sounds!
