24 ounce can, best by June 13, 2011. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is sweet malt, cooked corn and some grain. It's a weak aroma, not much to it at all. Taste is similar to the aroma (however the taste isn't weak), but there's also a slight metallic taste that I notice. With that being said, it doesn't taste awful. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's a bit watery with a decent amount of carbonation. Drinkability is a little below average. I don't think it's a horrible beer, but it's certainly not good, either. For $1.19 a can, I can't really complain at all. If I wanted something cheap to drink just to get drunk with, Beast Ice isn't a bad choice.

I bought a 24 pack of this for $13 at the local liquor store just to try it out. I've drank it warm and cold, straight from the can, and from my beer glass.
It's a golden yellow color, similar to what you'd expect from most cheap American macrobreweries. Brief high head that settles down really quickly, leaving just a circle of thin foam around the edge of the glass. Minimal lacing. I wish there would have been more. Smell is similar to most cheap beers, sweetness, corn, and malty wheat, but I thought it was stronger and more defined than I usually expect from cheap beers.
Taste was overwhelmingly metallic(probably because of the can) water, corn, malt, and kinda a weird understaste that reminded me of bubblegum. A sweet short-lasting aftertaste. The mouthfeel was ok. Not too impressive. It was fairly smooth, which I liked.
As far as cheap beers go, this is my favorite. I don't expect much for $.50/can, and this one surpassed my expectations. It's got the strongest most defined flavor IMHO, a higher alcohol content than many of the other cheap beers, so it's great for a party, but also really easy drinking for just a day relaxing.
