2.4/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz twist off brown bottle with no freshness date. Very thin lace that dissipates into only a ring, tiny bubbles rise through the pale golden brew.

Hint of solvent alcohol with an astringent grain in the back of the aroma.

Forced crispness struggles to bring a smoothness to the palate, light bodied with a semi slick mouth feel. Fast snap of alcohol, flavourless hop bitterness and astringent grains. Alcohol is noticeable in a slowly warming way with an annoying solvent character that lingers with every sip.

Not very clean with an odd feeling in the mouth, the solvent aroma and flavour from the alcohol does not help either. Pass on this one.

3.38/5  rDev +29%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12oz dark brown twist-off bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Crystal clear golden beer with a somewhat lively carbonation level that create a thin & tight pure white cream head.

Smell: Aroma is fairly clean. Faint grain and hop smells can barely be detected.

Taste: Upfront, this beer is creamy, smooth and malty. Body is medium to full with an even light malt sweetness. Notes of grain briefly appear, but are swept away by a flash of lemon/lime-like hop bitterness and carbonation on the palate. Fusel alcohols can be detected on the breath, bigtime. Beer finishes with a grain/husk tannin dryness.

Notes: 5.6% alcohol by volume and brewed using the Labatt Ice Brewing Process(tm), where the beer is dropped to -4°C, the forming ice crystals are removed and then the beer is aged. This leaves behind some strong-ass liquor that should be respected! If you want to get beer'd up, and quickly, this could be the beer for you. An easy drinking lager and instant brain rot material.

Labatt Ice beer also happens to be the first ice brewed beer in the world (born 1993).

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.
