Your typical ice brewed beer. Picked one up in a convenience store because it was cheap. Basic yellow color with quick, dissipating head. Smell is pretty foul and skunky. A good comparison would be Natural or Milwaukee's Best ice. Taste is very watery with hints of straw and bread. Overall not a pleasant experience, but a cheap buzz.

Only for when an ice cold beer will do and you don't want to think about it.

If you're looking for the best tasting, cheap, 5.5% alcohol beer, ICEHOUSE is the best buy. It has more or a hoppy, almost citrus taste to it, whereas other ICE beers mostly taste like alcohol and water.

Okay, so I remember beer before the era of the overly hopped craft beer. Hipsters be damned, Icehouse is a good beer, despite not being over hopped and overpriced. Beer doesn't have to be overly bitter and brewed in a bathtub to be good.

The main thing going for it is price...it's cheap. Consume it as cold as possible...freeze your taste buds.

Back in the day some friends and I went to visit another guy who went away to college. This stuff was everywhere, all the dorm parties, frats, dives. Long story short, ice house is a totally forgetable beer however the timesI had drinking it were wicked pissah

I was surprised by this beer. I picked up a 6 pack of 12 oz cans from a gas station in Northern Vermont. It's not available where I live, so it's my first try. Not groundbreaking, but... this is by no means 'awful' beer. It's surprisingly clean, more so than your PBR or High Life, both of which I like. The flavor is smooth and pleasant, I bet it's great on a hot day. It can't really be picked apart too much though.

It's not trendy, nuanced, or lovingly crafted. Don't let it warm up and drink it from a snifter. But for what it is, I think it's great and I'll buy it again, particularly at <$5 for a sixer. If you enjoy AAL, give it a try- it's a good one.
We're here to respect beer, so let's not call things awful that are simply out of fashion.

Smells sweet and citrusy. Acidic.

Feels like I threw up and havent gotten the taste out of my mouth yet

A terrible beer. It's my Grandfather's favorite, and I've had more of these than I care to admit
