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.

I'm surprised a beer this outstanding isn't already in the system and I feel privledged to add it (Huge sarcasim in that sentence)..I'm not sure if it is classified as a Ice Lager or Light Lager..I guessed light..

Light straw colored...no head retention...very little aroma but some hints of sweetness rather than hops which is different than regular "Lite" if I remember correctly..not a lot of flavor...goes down easy and no bad "off" tastes which for a beer like this is a definite positive..does have just a bit of that ice/alcohol flavor but not as strong as some of the other "Ice's" I've had...this is not a terrible beer...It's drinkable, and I guess for a light it's at least average...

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.

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.

Its an ice beer. Its a light beer. Its a bad beer. Why? I just don't get it. Next to nothing, tastewise, except for a slight burst of alcohol on the finish reminiscent of rubbing alcohol.

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.
