Which of these unusual styles is better for me: Light Ice, Non-Alcoholic, or Malt-Liquor? Well, I'm going to find out in this tri-meet which I've dubbed the "High-Low Invitation" (based off the wide range of ABV). Bud Ice Light is the first contestant of this threesome, and we're set to get this underway:
This time around, I'm going to drink this beer straight from its uniquely shaped bottle cuz I don't think it's worthy of a glass. Because the bottle is clear, you have a lifeless, very pale looking yellow. It does develop a decent head in the bottle though, making up for lost ground. The smell is clean, with the typical array of adjunct-like fumes. Taste starts with nothing, then it hits with lighly flavored corn, which makes way for a rush of rice in the finish. Only a crisp mouthfeel and a passable drinkability keep the beer in the bottle and not in the kitchen sink early on. But towards the end of the bottle, I got bored with it and tossed it. Not as bad as I thought, but nothing to get excited about other than owining a long name for a beer.
We'll see if this score beats that of its oppenents in the High-Low Invitation. Coors Non-Alcoholic coming up later.

Poured this 12 oz can into a pint glass. Poured a clear pale yellow color, produced a thin white head, poor retention , and no lacing left on the glass. The aroma of this Light Lager was mild, some corn and grain but not much else. Very light in body, smooth, some malted grain flavor, cereal grains, very dry finish. There are some mild hops present, but not much to talk about. Overall another poor quality, mass produced brew by AB that I hope to never drink again. Prost!
