Labatt Ice brewed by Labatt Brewing Company Ltd. This brew pours out a dark amber color with a nice white head. Has the look of an American style lager. It has the ice brew smell, but it is rich. So far I'm liking this brew. I did not care for the taste of Labatt Blue, so lets get on to the taste. The taste is right in middle of a regular beer and an ICE beer. This brew has a nice balance and it smooth. I like how it is smooth, but it has the ICE feel but not too much of the ICE feel. I would take this brew over the BLUE any day of the week. Over all I'm giving this brew a 3.75 out of 5. I would get Labatt ICE again. It is a good brew for a good price.

After a very expensive car repair that I had to pay for, recently, I wanted some brew that wouldn't further break the bank ... Stopped into my local beer distrib. and spotted this old econo-favorite for a mere $18/case (24 oz. "ghetto cans" as I call them ...)
There's not much depth to be tasted but the respectable 5.6% abv will get the job done when one is on a budget and wants something session-y .
It's no fine German pils/lager but for the money, you can't expect that from this formerly Canadian-brewed swill . Contract-brewed nowadays to I suppose, save money on the shipping over the border (I recall it tasting a bit better when it was still produced up in Canada.)
A few of these big ghetto cans will do ya unless you really wanna crunkify yourself (and I sometimes, do . : )))
No awards for Belgian-like complexity shall be won here but again, it was only $18 for case of the big cans ...

poured big ass can into weizen glass

A-Light golden straw. When poured into my 10" weizen glass, 10" of off=white head...then the beer started to magically appear! A slight orange hue.

S- sweet, wet hay, corn, caramel, sugar, beer

T- not really sure how to describe the taste on this beer. Nothing is singled out. It's sweet, strong for an American Adjunct...if you agitate in the mouth, you can taste alcohol...

M- Mouthfeel is thin, but not thin enough for the style...

O-overall, as others have said, this isn't bad for an ice beer. Therefore, it's pretty good for it's style. However that's not saying much. What is the draw of this style? To me, it's a cheap buzz. It was Friday night and I had an extra dollar to spend at the grocery store. A stress reliever? A college pre-game in the bar parking lot beer? IDK, it's really not bad, but seriously, what is the purpose of this beer? It's too strong and the mouthfeel is off for a refreshing summer beer while doing work, and it's not really a session beer. ICE beer? IDK what else to say...
