Overview Miller introduced this chelada-flavored (lime and salt) light beer in 2007, but where Bud Light Lime was an immediate and lasting success, Miller Chill started strong before falling off. The formulation was revamped in 2009 to try to regain momentum.

Flavors and aromas Our tasters, experienced as they are in styles from around the world, were totally caught off-guard by this artificial-lime-flavored beer. The flavoring suggests lime more than actually resembling lime—two tasters noted that it smelled like Froot Loops—but the biggest criticism here is that it doesn’t much resemble beer. It is, however, dry and crisp, with refreshing, lively carbonation.
