Miller Fortune: the Beer You Drink from a Rocks Glass
Rather than answer that question, though, here’s a link to something awesome – and NSFW – from Deadspin; they, like us, tried both Miller Fortune and Budweiser Black Crown. They pitted them head-to-head, but we won’t do that.
They’re a little more over-the-top than we’ll be, as some questions are better left unanswered. Such as the rocks glass question – which seems rhetorical.
Let’s just cut to the chase and give you a review of Miller Fortune.
The rocks glass is unnecessary, since you are drinking beer.
As for the taste, it’s not bad. Unlike the folks at Deadspin, I think this doesn’t taste like a macrobrewery got into the craft market – it’s well-made and doesn’t taste overpowering. Smooth, a little hoppy, but not too much. It’s a golden lager – color-wise, probably more copper than gold. But we won’t argue.
6.9% ABV. Couldn’t find info on bitterness and whatnot – but it’s “undistilled.” Aimed to be the beer to drink when you’re at an occasion that calls for whiskey.
They can charge a little more – $5.99 is around what you should pay.
Metasip Grade: B
Again, it’s not half bad. And, since Miller is behind it, the marketing machine will make sure you get a chance to try it. Which, I guess, you should.
