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.
