"Miller" - canned and bottled beer. Description, composition and customer reviews
"Miller" - beer, beloved by many connoisseurs of foamy drink. This brand occupies top positions in popularity ratings in the United States of America, where production was set up for the first time. However, Miller beer is known not only in the Americas, but also in Europe and Asia. The brand sells production licenses to other companies, so the foamy drink of this brand is kept in a quite affordable price segment. In this article, we describe the brand and describe the taste of beer "Miller". What do Russian consumers say about it? It largely depends on which drink they try. Russians, for example, relish beer made by Sabmiller Rus, whose production facilities are located in Kaluga. Are there any differences in the tastes of an authentic drink and made under license?
In one thousand eight hundred and fifty-fourth year, a thirty-year-old German named Frederick Miller arrived in the city of Milwaukee (Wisnonsin). He brought to North America from his homeland the experience of brewing and several thousand dollars. He first rented from a local resident Karl West, and then completely bought out this enterprise for the production of foamy drink. The modest Frederick Miller brewery called Planck Road Breivari. Now it is considered the first production in the United States, where this foamy drink began to be bottled. The brewery, however, received the name of its creator (Miller Brewing Company) only in nineteen thirty-third. During this time, the company successfully survived the anti-German sentiments of the two world wars and the so-called prohibition. Wisconsin citizens fell in love with “Miller” beer, whose producer was far from politics, for its high quality. Frederick's heirs piously honored the German tradition of making the intoxicating drink. The most popular Miller brands were:
- SouthPaw Light.
- Red Dog.
- Ice House.
So this story began.
Conversion to a major concern
In the middle of the twentieth century, Frederick Miller the Third stood at the helm of a family business. This ambitious man brought his products to the national level. And when the star of the Miller brand, whose beer had already been evaluated and fallen in love in forty states, was at its zenith, Frederick the Third and his son died as a result of a plane crash. Unfortunately, the only heir to the fortune, the granddaughter of the owner of the company Lorraine Mülberger, was an ardent opponent of alcohol in all its manifestations, even at a concentration of just over four percent. Therefore, she easily sold a controlling stake in WR Grace. The deal took place in 1966, and three years later Miller Brewery became part of the large Phillip Morris corporation. Finally, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, it merged with the South African Breweries concern (SAB). Due to this, the brewery production became the second in sales in the world.
How did Miller get to Russia
Citizens of the Russian Federation met this brand in nineteen ninety-eight. The production license was bought by Kaluga Brewing Company. She began her career with the release of the Jengyin Draft Miller product.Beer light amber shade very fond of Russians. When in two thousand and two years the American brand merged with the South African Breweries concern, the enterprise in Kaluga received a new name - SABMiller Rus LLC. In two thousand and twelfth year, this enterprise became part of the united Efes Rus group. Now this concern is the second in terms of sales of frothy drink in the Russian Federation. He owns eight breweries in the country and four malt production facilities.
Characteristic varieties "High Life"
This is the first product of Miller. Beer began to be produced in nineteen third year, and for more than a century its recipe has remained unchanged. This drink is draft, unpasteurized, without any additives and preservatives. "High Life" is a favorite camp in the United States. However, this drink is quite carbonized, which adds to its similarities with soda. Previously, this brand of beer and poured into small bottles of champagne. The drink has 4.7% alcohol. What can you say about his taste? “Miller High Life” won the gold medal at the International Beer Cup in the nomination “The best American-type lager” in two thousand and two years. Perhaps that says it all. In America, this beer is a favorite brand among the elite foam drinks.
Characteristics "Jengyin Draft"
As we remember, it was with the release of this brand that a company in Kaluga began work under a license. The drink is cold filtered and is not subjected to pasteurization. This beer "Miller" reviews called absolutely devoid of bitterness of hops. Perhaps that is why he is loved not only by the strong, but also by the beautiful half of humanity. The alcohol content in Miller Dzhenyuin Draft is slightly lower than in other brands of the brand - 4.4 percent. But the reviews warn: the tastes of the authentic American drink and the Russian counterpart are very different. But the use of advanced technology "cold filter" allows you to prolong the shelf life of the drink without the addition of preservatives. What do users say about the taste of Russian beer? Those who have not tried the real American light lager are completely satisfied with the quality of SABMiller Rus products. Soft, refreshing taste, aroma of cereals, beautiful amber color - such characteristics give the drink reviews. Users like the bottle with opener.
Midnight Miller Beer
Reviews praise this drink for dark, like buckwheat honey, color and strong white foam.This brand appeared on the Russian market in two thousand and eight, and was remembered by consumers with the beautiful slogan “The Other Side of You”. However, beer does not open at all in the Hyde man. The taste of Miller Midnight is mild, as is the case with light varieties. The percentage of alcohol is normal - 4.5 degrees. Only for the Russian market Midnight beer (Miller) was produced. Its composition violates the basic canons of the production of foamy drink. In America, beer is made from hops, malt and water. And in Russia to reduce the cost of the product add starch syrup. Therefore, the official production of "SABMiller Rus" is referred to as "beer drinks".
Miller beer: price
The cost of a bottle and canned product is not much different. In America, this beer belongs to the category of elite alcoholic beverages. In Russia, it is much cheaper. And the reasons for this lie in the composition of the drink, which is mixed with starch and syrup instead of roasted malt (as required by dark varieties). But low cost determines the popularity enjoyed by Miller beer in Russia. Price 0, 5 liters is about eighty-five rubles. A bank of 0.33 l worth and does 60 rubles.
