Awfully "orange" for 2 row and corn?

I'm thinking that's lots of suspended yeast. Bright beer, and cloudy beer are often different colors.

Miller High Life is a lager, but you didn't lager this one, so it's not technically a clone....more like it's ale cousin.

Except he said the were 11 months old, should be crystal clear.

Looks good regardless of color.

Default That is awfully cloudy....

Sweet Lady Highlife is a constant guest around here. (You don't have to be a snob to appreciate good beer) Plus homebrew doesn't last in the southern sun for long, Highlife will not skunk while yard work is being performed.

Why so orange? How did it taste? How did it taste when it was younger? What was the basis for your recipe?

Wow I'm glad I found a thread for this so recent. I'm curious about the taste as well. Do you recall fermentation temp? Since MHL is a lager and you used a kolsch or you said "dried yeast" (not sure what you meant by this) I'd assume you did the lower end of ale temps?
