Beast ice. Is what it is. This one pours from the frat house's keg light golden copper (darker than the light) and lots of foam on top. Aroma is heavy skunk and stale corn. Flavor goes on the pattern with solid Skunky Beast with extra skunk flavor. Blah. Not worth drinking to tick, but had to be sure to tick all my college mistakes.

Poured from a 24oz can into a Pilsner glass.

Beast Ice was my unemployment-era beer of choice many, many years ago. I'm glad to finally be revisiting it in this setting.

Appearance: like regular Beast, this beer is a plain, not particularly natural yellow color without a nice golden or straw hue. The head and effervescence are actually quite nice, though, and style-appropriate.

Smell: boring grain and a little plastic quality. Not good, but not particularly offensive either. These beers can get a lot more plastic-ey and they can certainly have the cooked corn thing going on -- which I'm glad to say Beast Ice does not. So not good, but could be a lot worse.

Taste: mildly sweet malt flavor with a tiny bit of plastic. Hops aren't evident at all. That said, this is actually tastier than regular Beast. I'm somewhat pleasantly surprised.

Mouthfeel: light body which is just heavy enough not to be watery. Mouthfeel is fizzy and refreshing. Almost insipid, but again, could be a lot worse.

Overall: this is far from a good beer, and even pretty far from a decent macro lager. That said, it's surprisingly a lot better than its brother, Milwaukee's Best Premium. And at 5.9%, I can see now why it was my unemployment beer of choice all those years ago.
