Served in a pub glass from a bottle.

Very pale straw yellow color, very clear filtered look

no aroma noted

water like very light bodied

taste and looks like water.... no aroma... no head... i hear its very hard to make though and they get it the same every time... i guess that is one positive... oh and they do have good commercials!!!

Presentation: 12 oz blue, black and silver can. “The Ice Brewed, Less Filling Beer” on the label, meaning more alcohol and somewhat lower in calories than normal ice beers. No freshness date.

Appearance: Quick foamy white head forms and flattens to nothing, very mild haze under the yellow straw hue.

Smell: Smells of cooked grits. Light alcohol seems process or from fermented cereal grains.

Taste: Crisp with a medium high carbonation, brash graininess with a one dimensional slap of hop bitterness to back up the astringent flavours. Lots of cooked cereal grain flavour, near to cloying sweet. Husk and a corn grit flavour in the finish with a drying astringent end.

Notes: Neighboring insipid, this beer would not even be good to grill with it is that bad. Well maybe if it was to quell the flames. Hard to drink and a feat to finish one off. Not a recommended beer at all.

Yikes. Run and hide, now. Pours darker yellow with the same white head. Cotton candy and canned corn in the nose. Sickening sweet corn syrup and sugar taste. Maybe some grass. A sickingly sweeter version of Miller Lite. Tastes the same coming up as well.

I'm tasting a 5-month-past-expiration-date 40oz. of Lite Ice, for the record. Probably the most notable thing about this beer, other than the fact it was created in the first place, is its horrible smell. It repels the nose. I've smelled it three times in an attempt to describe it, and the closest thing I can identify it with is probably sweat. The beer itself is kind of sour tasting.. not as bad as the smell but nothing I'd buy again. Lite Ice simply sucks.

This is a retro review, I drank this stuff so much when I was younger and broke because you can pound them down and get pretty blasted pretty quick. I have a bottle of it sitting on a shelf in my man cave as an artifact of the past...where it all began.

A: Pale yellow with hardly a head.

S: Corn and grain, some hops, boozy for a light lager.

T: Crisp and smooth, cereal grains with a slight hop bite and a boozy dry finish.

M: Water like with fizzy carbonation.

O: Goes down smooth because it's not very complex, spent many a day banged up on this stuff.

Man, this is some rough swill here. Has little hints of it's brother Miller lite, but so many overtones of alcohol and water, it's hard to make out what this beer really tastes like. Gave me a headache after only 2. This beer had little flavor of corn or hops and left quite a lot to be desired. Not for me, but you may like it.

Sort of a sweet malt/corn smell that is typical for ice beers of this type. Alcohol content is only slightly higher than a normal beer and is not overly noticable. Has sort of a sick grassy flavor to me that I did not find appealing. However, this beer is not flagrantly offensive to the palate -- just a simple ice beer made during the ice beer hype days.
