A - Poured a clear golden color with a white head that fades quickly to nothing

S - Is mostly of sweet grainy malt

T - Follows the nose with a lot of sweet malt that has a grainy taste to it

M - this beer has a medium body with medium carbonation to it

D - Well this wouldn't be my first choice by any means but for what it is it is better than other crap beers out there I liked the light version better

look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1

Picked this up at 7-11.

Appearance - Pale yellow in color with a huge, rocky white head which dissapates very quickly. NO lacing present at all.

Smell - Very sweet maltiness. Slight hints of cat pee.

Taste - The 5.5% alcohol is noticeable. I taste corn, bread, malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel -VERY carbonated and thin body

Overall - Ok I have an appreciation for well done macro lagers but this one is not one. Honestly this is a drain pour for me. I wouldn't recommend this to no one. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

I bought this can on a whim at my local 7-11. Pours a very pale yellow into my pint glass. Aggressive pour produced a nice frothy head, but it dissipated almost immediately and provide only minimal lacing.

Smells a little like grassy grains, but has a "medicinal" scent to it. Not very pleasant or inviting.

Taste is a lot like the smell. Not very good.

Mouth feel is thin and fizzy.

Easy to drink, but why would you want to?

Will not purchase again.

Label says Ice Ale underneath name
Poured into Stone Ruination pint glass

A - bubbly white head, disappears quickly, transparent straw color, lots of bubbles

S - bready, very light hops

T - maltier than the GD light I just had, aftertaste has a slight dry bitter hop flavor, alcohol is ever so noticeable

M - bit more bodied than GD light, way carbonated

D - this is Busch level maybe just below Bud Light or Miller Lite, much better than the Light version, still dont think id purchase it even if its cheaper than other BMC like beer

Big brother to the newly contracted 7-Eleven beer, Game Day Light. To sum this beer up...now there's a third wheel in the crappy American "Ice" beer category to compete with Natty Ice and Beast Ice. And accordingly it tastes just as bad. Game on!!
