L - Transparent with golden yellow color and two fingers of fluffy white head

S - Bland. Nothing bad, but nothing good either.

T - Like the nose. Nothing here. Pretty remarkable for nearly 6% that there is no flavor

F - Thin and watery. Clean finish.

O - It doesn't taste bad; it just doesn't taste like anything.

Drinking ice cold damn near frozen. I'm getting alot of head that fades to a thin lace on a pint glass and that leads to the rather thin layer of foam on the top. Now I get a very nasty boozy and metallic taste. To me this is worse than steel reserve and I drink steel reserve when I need to get hammered fast. It doesnt go down smooth and the next day after a 15 pack or whatever they throw in to be worth putting your money up on a budget you'll regret I got super FUCKED up and this beer gives you the worst hang over ever.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a can into a glass
Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is huge of a corny and light grainy smell. Along with these aromas comes some light paper smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a corn syrup sweetness mixed with a corn grain taste. Along with these flavors comes some light hop tastes of a herbal nature as well as some hay, which are joined by some light fruit and a light paper taste to leave a slightly sweeter and crisp grainy taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the thinner side in terms of thickness and chewiness with a carbonation level that is on the average side. An OK feel overall, but nothing exceptional.
Overall – A decent ice overall. Crisp and clean (at least when drunk cold, as it warms it is another story….).

This was a big mistake...
Running low on cash so I bought a 30 rack for the weekend.
Very metallic, smell and taste. It was like the GMO corn was dominating everything.
Thin, no malt that I could detect.
No appreciable hops at all.
Serious GMO hangover even after drinking just two.

Little aroma, honey leaning color with minimal head when poured in pilsner glass. Watery and what little flavor there is gets a metallic taste as it warms. Drink cold and fast for best results. Got a 24 oz can for $.99, usually $1.39 + tax. After drinking got bit of a headache.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Look: Very clear straw yellow with lots of visible carbonation. Large two-finger white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Corn syrup malt.

Taste: Virtually nothing. I can hardly even taste the corn malt.

Mouthfeel: Thin and highly carbonated. Slightly thicker than water.

Overall: A very boring, poor beer.

32oz can poured into Duvel tulip. MAR1119 stamped on bottom of the can, so this should still be fresh for over 4 more months.

Appearance - Pours large loose billowy white head with decent retention and slight thick lacing. Clear gold body with lots of fine floating particulates. Lots of carbonation. Not bad for the style. 4.25

Smell - Typical musky corn, but a fine underlying delicate maltiness. A little boring but nothing off. 4

Taste - Some bitterness up front but mellows out into a fairly smooth, slightly honey sweet body. Can have a bit of a metallic taste to it but it's not lingering so it doesn't bother like that character often does in other brews. 4.25

Mouthfeel - Slightly sharp and crisp up front but a light smooth body afterward. No aftertaste except for many a faint sweetness and faint hop bitterness. Pretty clean finish. 4.25

Overall - Actually fairly bold while being light bodied, well balanced, and inoffensive. Good drinkability too. I'm not fan of the style, but in rating it in style it's pretty legit. 4.25

Classic real American Adjunct Lagar! Union Made! USA! Delicious! I love it. It's my dad's favorite and he knows beer. Strong and smooth...Very nice! I love the taste. It's strong but tastes better than a light beer...have 3. Best ice cold served in a schooner glass. I like the branding and the can looks great. The price is amazing. Grab a 30 pack (about $16 total wine MD with high liberal MD tax included) instead of a 6 pack of overpriced microbrew....give your friend a beer (if you have friends). They'll like this beer if they actually like beer flavored beer. Cheers!

Way too heavy flavored and high calorie. One sip and it is obvious this is high in calories. They need to offer a light version that has the same or higher alcohol content. Like 7%, 70 calorie. If that was just alcohol, water, and a slight beer flavor, then they would have something. That strong 'beer' flavor is so NOT needed. Would PLEASE like to enjoy beer withOUT the beer belly.

Served from 24 oz can into shaker glass. A large frothy white head drops slowly with moderate lacing. Color is clear straw with tons of streaming carbonation. Aroma is mild -- lightly toasted malt, clean water. Mouthfeel is medium with a dry finish and noticeable alcohol. Flavor of malt sweetness and a little more hop presence than others of this style. Overall: it is average for the Ice beer category. The alcohol presence gives more of a harsh malt-liquor presence than I care for.

Pours out a clear dark golden yellow. The head is white with nice retention. There is also a good amount of lacing.

The nose is straight up pennies and a lemon twang. If you dig deep you can pick up a cheap sweet corn scent.

Taste is of course sweet corn and a hint of grains. Also has an ugly chemical like aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is almost heavy bodied. Carbonation is alright.

This is a great beer and it's cheap too. I spent $4.07 for a 6 pack of 16oz cans. With anything that's considered economical, this beer is not going to be the absolute greatest. You should already know that. However, this Ice beer is a bang for the buck! The flavor is mild, typical for a adjunct lager. The malt character is somewhat present at the end of the sip, there is also a slight hop note. This beer along with milwaukee's best light tastes very simulator to miller high life. The beer is very crisp and smooth. A ultra drinkable beer that goes down with no fuss. I enjoy this beer as a great way to space out my more expensive beers during the week. I find the best way to enjoy this beer is to put it in the freezer for about a hour. I love when it gets a slight ice slush. It really beats the summer heat!

My favorite ice beer. Has the sweetness up front but is well rounded. I can only find these in the 24oz cans. Would like to get a 30 pack sometime as I’ve heard they come in as well. Just haven’t found them. Cheers.

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 9/17/2018. Pours crystal clear golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of honey, nuttiness, corn, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Bit of fruity aromas, but not too overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, and lightly toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of honey, nuttiness, corn, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Very mild herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light honey/nutty.corn, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Slightly increasing lingering warmth of 5.9% after the finish. Overall this is pretty good iced pale adjunct lager. All around good robustness of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very clean and nicely rich barley/grain flavors, with mild earthy hop balance. Not overdone on the corn adjuncts at all; which was not the case with the other MB versions. A nicely enjoyable offering. Very tasty and well made considering the style.
