Sometimes we’re simply not in the mood for complicated beer choices. Thankfully, the “champagne of beers” has long set a cheap standard for American brews. Not one that will blow you away on taste or potency, it’s easily enjoyed thanks to a fizzy light flavor and a price tag intended for the frugal. This makes High Life (or High Life Light–if you can find it) a perfect beer to stock the fridge or bring to a party. And unlike a high gravity or Belgium-style beer, you always know where you stand: no crazy floral taste or instant loopy buzz, here. With an instantly recognizable, iconic skinny-necked bottle, it’s tough to not look self-confident and cool drinking the High Life. Enjoy.
