Notes: America's first domestic ice beer, Icehouse is traditionally brewed, fermented and, just before aging, its temperature is lowered to below freezing. This process imparts the beer's smoothness and an alcohol content that's slightly higher (5.5% by volume) than other regular premium beer brands. Icehouse was introduced in 1993 and has reinforced its position as the ultimate beer for wind-up and pre-game occasions. Blending humor and high-energy excitement, Icehouse marketing encourages its target consumers to take occasions to the next level with a great-tasting beer.

Presentation: 12 oz blue lined can with a picture of an old time rural brewery. Don’t be fooled by the Plank Road Brewery bs this is a Miller product. No freshness date.

Appearance: Pale strawish golden colour with the clarity that comes with all ultra filtered American macro lagers, tight but thin white lace stays for a few minutes.

Smell: Very clean with a faint whiff of alcohol, corn and grain.

Taste: Crisp yet the brew yields a smoothness also that adds to the drinkability slightly. Perfumy alcohol rushes through the mouth and out the nose, ghost like hop profile donning a bitterness that cuts and a trace of leaf flavour middle to end. Malt is their but in a pale and thin form with several cereal grain monkeys riding its back. Some sweetness in the back but dries up in the end.

Notes: A half decent macro lager and for ice beer it is not half bad. Nothing to really talk about, just a clean ice beer to drink if you are into ice beers. No point really, you may as well drink malt liquor.

When it comes to a good cheap beer you can't top Ice House. The bitter yet delightfully delicious taste is what drew me to this exceptional display of a common beer. Now i catch alot of flack for calling icehouse my beer of choice, but when it comes down to it when you buy icehouse you get your moneys worth and you get drunk what more could one ask for?

Another of Miller's Plank Road Brewery products. As I was drinking it, I was trying to identify the flavors for description. The problem was, this beer just has a general, vague "beer flavor." No real characteristics of any particular kind. Overall, fairly bland and weak. It would take a more discerning palate than mine to give a more definite description.
