BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Miller Brewing Co.
Wisconsin, United States
millercoors.com

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

This beer is nasty. In my opinion, the only people who should be buying this beer is people who are looking to save money. A 30 box of this beer was $15 at my store which is incredibly cheap.
You realize why this beer is so inexpensive one you taste it. This brewery spent no time or effort making a good tasting bee!

Pousrs clear yellow with a thick soapy head that fades quickly. This beer, is very grainy, corny and cheap. Corn all the way through the nose, and into the taste.. Cheap grain, cheap malts, decent carbination. Its just a very cheap tasting beer. Its only purpose is getting drunk.
