Miller Lite is the original and most gold medal awarded light beer. More taste. Half the carbs of Bud Light. 96 calories and 3.2g of carbs per 12 fl. oz. serving. Miller Lite established the light beer category in 1975 and introduced the perfect balance of lightness and flavor nationally. It’s a real Pilsner, brewed to have more color and taste with only 96 calories per 12oz. Since day one, our mission has been to deliver uncompromising quality through a great-tasting American-style Lager. Miller Lite has a golden color and deep flavor, yet is delicately balanced to be light on calories. Our unique process is more time consuming, but has earned us more gold medals for taste than any other light beer.
