Tall boy can into a pint glass at my house on July 19, 2012. About two fingers of head. Pale, golden color. Bubbly white head. Hardly any retention.

Smelled light caramel malts, corn, honey, grain and bread.

Tasted corn, metallic, honey, lots of grains, bread and a bad note of strong alcohol.

Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt watery finish.

Not a bad beer for the style. It started out pretty well but the taste was not much to speak of.

The beer is amazingly clear with a white head. Clean aroma with a strong corn character. Some grainiess and a bit of yeast. Very simple flavor as well. No hop character or anything, but a clean flavor and moderate sweetness. Better than I had remembered.

Poured into a beer stein

Appearance - Pale yellow color with a very voluminous albeit soapy head that quickly fizzes away.

Smell - Malts, Corn, Cereal Grains, Slight Yeasts and Ice Cubes. That is probably the best way I can describe it. Smells like freezer burned food as well

Taste - Cooked Corn, Malts, Cereal Grains, and freezer burn. Like the scent, if they could make "freezer burn" into a flavor, this would come pretty close to it

Mouthfeel - Light & carbonated. At least it's somewhat crisp, which is it's strongest feature

Overall - I don't really see the appeal to Ice Beers. I definitely have had worse but this just was not a great beer to drink what-so-ever. Don't be tempted by the $1.50 price tag, spend that extra $2 and get a bomber of Fat Tire instead
