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.

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

Appearance:
Straw color, super clear. Some carbonation rising. Bright white, soapy head.

Aroma:
Corn and grains, some sweetness.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Corn, grainy cereal, a little sweetness. Sharp metallic towards the end. Finish is mostly dry, a little crisp. Body is light and watery, sharp, rough, fizzy.

Overall:
It's an awful beer.

2.18/5  rDev +7.9%

Round 2 of paper bag liquor night.

Appearance (2.25) : Pours a tall 3 fingered head, pale straw body, no surprises.

Aroma (1.25) : Tin. Stale, dry corn. Rubber? Light floral.

Taste (2.25) : Smooth, some notes of banana amongst strong creamed corn. There's just something there that makes this taste okay. It's definitely not memorable, it's entirely forgettable, but marginally drinkable.

Mouthfeel (3) : Creamy, smooth, carbonated.

Overall (2.18) : This stuff will get you hammered fast. That's not my goal personally, as I'm more of a connoisseur than a drunk; however Icehouse drinks a little better than some macro tall beers - but not very many. Better than Keystone Ice by a nose. And now the alcohol is taking effect. Great. Best out of the tall macros? Natty Ice. Sorry Miller/Coors.

Cheap, above 5%, and not as offensive as some of its peers, but by no means tasty.

I used to drink this in college. I hope I never have to drink it again.
