Miller Beer is Making a Fortune

Updated on March 1, 2014

The New Miller Fortune Lager

The New Miller Fortune

Last night I decided to try one of the new Miller Fortune beers. Being somewhat of a beer connoisseur, I believe that I am truly qualified to provide my opinion on this beer. I can honestly say that I have not tasted a beer from Miller even close to this one.

When you pour Miller Fortune into a glass it has a nice thick head but it disappears rather quickly compared to a Yuengling lager. Even though the head disappears, the beer maintains a good level of carbonation.

When you take your first sip of Fortune, you will think you are drinking a craft beer rather than a Miller product.

Pleasant Amber Color

The new Fortune has a pleasant amber color not too different than a Yuengling lager or many craft beers. The color of this beer is similar to that of Samuel Adams Lager also.

Fortune is Very Smooth

Once in a while, I like to sip on a beer that is kind of bitter. If you like bitter beers, this one is not for you. I like smooth beers also, and this one goes down very smooth. This beer is sure to be a hit with people who like both a dark amber and a smooth beer. It is more on the malty, sweet side and finishes with little aftertaste.

Drinking a Fortune

If you are going out for a steak dinner and would like to supplement it with a good beer, I recommend one or two of these. However, if you like to drink at a bar and guzzle down 10 or 12 beers or so, this one might not leave you standing. Fortune hits you hard. Each beer has a whopping 6.9% alcohol content. After you have a couple, you will know you are not drinking a light beer.

Recently, it seems that all of the major brewing companies are racing to discover the next gold mine; the next beer for them that shoots sales through the roof. I recently have tried Bud Black Crown and Beck's Sapphire; two beers that were recently released to appeal to the younger beer drinking crowd. In my opinion, the Miller Fortune beats them in a taste test. Budweiser Black Crown is a golden amber lager with less calories and less alcohol than Fortune. Beck's Sapphire, on the other hand, is a German Pilsner. Miller Fortune has a higher ABV (alcohol by volume) than these two beers and roughly 30 calories more per beer.

I usually do not drink craft beers but this one has a drink ability that even appeals to me. Am I going to quit drinking my regular Yuengling and switch to this beer? Probably not. But if I decide to switch up for a beer or two, I would choose this one.

It does not taste like a regular lager and is in a class all of it's own. I can't even think of a beer that tastes close except maybe a Magic Hat. But Magic Hat is far more perfumy and I don't like it. I think that this beer is going to draw a lot of Magic Hat drinkers. I don't think it will win over the regular lager crowd that likes Miller Genuine Draft, Budweiser, or Yuengling.

Craft Beers

Last year I went to a very large Craft Beer event. There was approximately 50 different craft beers and I liked quite a few even though I generally just like lagers. Many of these crafters got their start from home brewing kits. I have not had the time to give this a shot but I bet if you experimented with different beer recipes, you can make a beer that tastes like Miller Fortune. The reason I say this is because a couple of the beers that I had at this event did taste like Fortune.

Well, I hope my review helps you decide whether you want to give this beer a shot or not. Basically, if you do not like many of the craft beers made today you probably will not like Miller Fortune. However, if you like to try new beers and are a fan of craft beers you should give this one a try.

      I tried Fortune recently and enjoyed it. Your warning about its alcohol content should be taken very seriously. If you drink more than three or four of them in one sitting you'll be walking into things...haha. Otherwise it's good stuff. Nicely reviewed!
