This is a great beer. I enjoy ice beers as it is,but the smoothness of this beer is exceptional. The smell is very pleasing and the aftertaste is easy on the palate...
A good all around beer while watching the Patriots on a Sunday.
Happy Drinking

I'm very surprised this beer got such low ratings. It may be mass produced, and it may not be all that unique, but Molson Ice is certainly delicious and gets you very drunk on the cheap. This is not a craft brew, but for what it is there aren't many better beers out there. Molson Ice manages to be refreshing, tasty, and full of alcoholic goodness, a trifecter of awesomeness. It drinks well in hot and cold weather. You can down one after mowing your lawn or let it warm you up on a cold winter night. Molson Ice and I go way back. My taste in beer has certainly become much more eclectic since the days of chugging Molson Ice in my parent's basement, but I don't think I'll ever get sick of this beer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

I don't understand the "poor" rating this beer has.

This beer pours like a lager should. Nice head, clear and yellow. What are lagers supposed to look like again? Last time I checked, this!

Smells of corn and barley. Smells like Mickey's. If that's a bad thing, I don't know beer. Smells like it's going to be easy drinking yet give you a generous amount of alcohol.

Taste: oh my. Think of malt liquor, without the cloying sweetness. Or off putting aftertastes for you purists. This tastes great! Little hit of alcohol, but the watery mouthfeel washes it away nicely. Malty. Spiffy! Clean water, light hop bitterness (it IS there), picking up hardly any corn taste, just a nice mild beer flavor. Very good ice brewed beer.

Overall I'd say go and try this if you're tired of drinking bitter pinetree-esque brew for a quick buzz. Not too shabby on price, and it's easy drinking. Definitely not deserving of it's "poor" rating. That's reserved for Big Flats or Beer 30 for crying out loud. GET SOME.

Appearance: Clear gold with a fizzy white head.

Smell: Grass and a touch of malt.

Mouthfeel: Light body. Smooth and very easy drinking.

Drinkability: An easy brew to pound. Very light and refreshing, but with enough flavor to let you know it is a beer.

Molson Ice has a thin, white, quickly-dissipating head, and a clear, yellow appearance with lots of bubbles streaming up, and no lacing. The aroma is faint, but indistinguishable grains and some hops can be picked up, as well as roastiness and sweetness. Mouthfeel is on the light to medium side, and Molson Ice finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, I found this to be an above-average ice-brewed lager. I think it's worth trying.

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.

3.73/5  rDev +48%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: It was poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: It has a light golden color with very good clarity and lots of carbonation. The head builds up tall and foamy and it is just off white in color. It fades nearly as fast as it forms leaving behind little to lace.

Smell: The aroma is simple and clean with a mild cereal grain character.

Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor is similar to Molson Canadian but a little stronger. The favor is somewhat sweet with a cereal grain malty body offset by a light grassy hop presence. It finish quickly and cleanly, a little bit dry, with some of the light hops bitterness. The texture is smooth but with good carbonation and a medium body.

Notes: Overall I would say that this is one of the cleaner crisper Ice beers that I have had.

This is like the Canadian Bud. Molson Ice is my cheap beer, the old stand by. It has good flavor and goes down easy. Plus it's no that filling, so you can drink a lot of it. But it does have a kick, almost like heiny, but not as bad. If you want to get buzzed on a good, worth the money beer, this is the one.

Good stuff! it doesn't have that heavy bitter taste that most imports have. You can drink a number of them and they all go down as equally smooth. It gets you to that buzz level a litttle more quicker than other beers. If you never had one before it's worth the $23.00 for the case.

Bought on the reccommendation of a friend who likes Guinness about as much as I do. Yellow/light amber body with thin white head that dissipates rather quickly. Looks better than I expected. Smells yeasty and hoppy, somewhat sweet. Smells tasty. Tastes sweet and watered down, but agreeable. Very slight hop on the finish. Not great, but better than I thought it’d be. Give me this over any Anheuser-Busch (at least that I’ve tried) any day of the week, if I have to drink a macro.

Pours a light, fizzy, yellow color with some good head, but not much carbonation. Decent malty scent, slightly skunky. Nice taste for a macro lager, good and crisp, mostly malt, with just a bit of hop presence to smooth it out. Very smooth, a nice ice beer overall.
