2.3/5 rDev -9.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
It pours a completely, utterly, crystal clear straw yellow, carbonated and personality-free. A finger of uniform, bright white head settles soon to snowy froth. Thin lacing spirals the inside of the glass.
The aroma is tinny and crass, with vegetal skunky adjuncts pretty much voiding any presence of grain or more enjoyable hops.
Upon tasting, the grain and corn sweetness is swift and plentiful. The sulphury cabbage from the aroma is absent here, blissfully, and replaced by a vague peppery hop note. The finish is about as crisp and clean as you'd expect from a macro, with a lingering light bitterness that fades to a metallic memory. It's better than the aroma, but just what does that really say?
Light bodied, the carbonation saves the day, because the presence says water otherwise.
I remember when this first came out everyone was raving about the alcohol content. Drink and get fried faster. Honestly, I couldn't get fried fast enough to keep drinking this beer. Far from the worst I've had, sure, but with no real identity and a dead skunk in the nose, I can safely say I will steer well clear from here on out. Ice cold, it goes down, but anything less and it's just as likely to come back up.

3.18/5 rDev +25.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a tall pilsner glass: color is straw, big effervescent bubbles and a big bright white head that lingers pretty well.
Smell is very underdone, some thin malt, adjunct type flavors, corn, off grains.
Taste is pretty good, i prefer molson to many other adjunct lagers, and the ice version is decent, some of the malt flavors are concentrated a bit more than standard adjunct lager: some light malt like flavors but the adjunct flavors take over.
Mouthfeel is a bit less crisp, in a good way, than many other adjunct lagers, the strength probably helps this bit.
Overall, a good adjunct lager with some softer mouthfeel, but still uninspiring flavor profile. Score are based on to style rating.

Molson Ice is an Ice Brew with an abv of 5.6. Not a bad brew. The taste is ok reminds me a of Budweiser. The color is a dark amber. The brew is smooth but it has a kick. This brew is better than what I thought it would be. I will be buying this this brew to change it it for the the american style Lagers.
