Very sweet not too sweet. Lots of corn. Have to drink this extremely cold. Feel the alcohol kick in within minutes. A good malt liquor or strong beer. Miller is not ashamed of its line of Malt beverages like STEEL or Olde English 800 (love their OE High Gravity)

3 for 3 bucks in west Lebanon New Hampshire. Hell no sales tax neither. This reminds me of 99 cent oil cans of labatts. Best deal in town. I think hurricane is moor beery as this is sweeter. Goes down smooth . And I love the 3 for 3 bargain!!

Icehouse Edge has a thick, white head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, golden appearance. There isn’t much lacing here. The aroma is of sweet, musty, wet grain, and the taste is of alcohol, corn, dank and heavy grain, a bit of hops, sugar, and other undefinable substances. Mouthfeel is medium, and Icehouse Edge finishes mostly dry, heavy, and harsh. This is a serious beer for hopeless alcoholics. Try some, if you dare.

My old beer OE 800 40oz sliped through my hand and fell on my toe. As I hopped in pain I fell through my trailer floor. As I bottomed out waist deep in old seventies harvest gold vynal flooring. Then realizing in horror my soft landing was due to crushing a gaggle of feral kittens that had made the crawl space their home. I realized then it was time to downsize from 40oz. I still would not recommend this 24oz falling on a toe. Especially in flip flops. This wonderful beer has a penchant for buggery. Is wonderful warm with a straw. Pairs nicely with burning Chor Boy with a hint of Crack.

to me for a higher abv icehouse this is a pretty good bang for your buck.. I purchased a 24 ounce can for 1.10 after tax.. It pours your typical american adjunct lager color.. yellow fizzy water id say.. the smell is of musky corn.. the taste is actually nothing but a regular icehouse with a little more punch but the alcohol is not noticable.. So overall i say it is a okay beer, i cant complain ive had worse.. I give it a thumbs up !

It's an 8abv icehouse...no one buys these for their delectable taste! That being said, it's one of the best cheap beers with high abv. Better than steel reserve and better than EQ. Pours with a more impressive head than I would have thought, but after 90 seconds or so it's gone. Quickly receding lace. Smells sour. Like sour apple and corn. Taste is pretty much the same. It's okay honestly.

Golden-brown beer with a thick, foamy head. Sweet, fruity aroma with dry grain and corn notes and alcohol esthers. Tastes of sugary vegetables and not much else. The initial few sips bordered on repulsive, but it somehow gets better if you keep drinking. Maybe my taste buds have gone into a coma. Lacks the offensive musty, metallic taste of some malt liquors but, other than that, isn't anything to write home about. It'll get you drunk and isn't that what malt liquor is for?

Reviewing against the malt liquor category, not the lager. To call it a lager is grossly negligent and clearly a macro swill pipe dream.

Pours a beautiful amber caramel with a nice off-white head, half inch, hung around until I began drinking it. Clarity is impeccable.

Nose gives away its pedigree. Macro, adjutant, and lacking any real hop character. Again, when compared against malt liquors, it is period and proper. A nice ML nose.

Taste is well balanced and pleasant. Corn and rice dominate, with perhaps a hint of real barley noted in the first 10-12 ounces. Mild sweetness. Bitterness on the finish. Caramel and wheatbread on the belch.

Supremely quaffable. Not the best ML, but a damn good variation.

Price is icing on the cake.

From the 24 oz. can stamped DEC3112-F07020418. Sampled on September 11, 2012.

It pours yellow with a tremendous, foamy white head that fades down after a few minutes. Carbonation galore.

The aroma explodes with grain, adjunct corn, and this odd sort of pear thing with a clean crisp, lightly hopped background.

The body is thin.

Grains are noted in the taste up front with a slight lingering alcohol bite moving in at the end. For the malt liquor style this is fairly typical although that pear thing was a slight bonus.

Icehouse Edge brewed by Miller Co. This brew pours out a dark amber color with a small white head. Now this brew is 8.0 abv. The smell is sweet like male liquor. The tease is sweet as well it reminds me of a malt liquor even though it's a lager. I'm impressed on how smooth this brew goes down. There is nothing bad about this brew. I would get it again. Over all I'm giving this brew a 3 out 5.
