look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Clear golden straw color. highly carbonated. Head is white with decent retention. No lacing on the glass.

The Nose is metallic with sweet corn. Also picking up a fake lemon type sourness.

Taste is a bit harsh. Its overly sweet and chemical tasting. Not getting any hop profile of course. Not the worst Ive had.

Mouthfeel could stand to be lighter. Carbonation is typical. Lots of it.

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 9/24/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and light herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and light herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, not too fruity. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery feeling. Mildly increasing lingering alcohol warmth of 5.9%. Overall this is a solid iced pale adjunct lager. All around good robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; smooth, crisp, clean, and pretty refreshing to drink for the ABV. Clean pale malt/grain flavors and decent earthy hop balance. Just a bit too much corn notes I thought, but otherwise pretty tasty. Pleasant and enjoyable.

this is a very light and refreshing brew. I could drink this nectar all day long. Nothing from Coors has ever disappointed me. This is easy to drink and a can goes down faster than I would expect.

For what it is it's great. I'm an IPA guy. I love hoppy balanced beer. But this is a cheap decent beer. I like it better than natural light. If you're in college or want a cheap beach/pool beer you can't beat it. 30 stones for less than $15? Hell yeah!

Very sweet smell right off the bat. Very smooth drinking and refreshing. I’ll definitely buy again and again.

Out of most ICE beers i'd have to say this is probably my least favorite but it gets the job done. Taste is a bit harsh in the beginning but after the first can your taste buds will adjust. These are available at the local corner store 2 tallboys for 2.50 and the labeling says that it's an ALE, not sure why most are saying its a lager. If your looking for a buzz without breaking the bank this might be a good choice. Then again there's many more other ICE brews out there that are more easily drinkable.

Drinkable AAL, but certainly not great. Had a bit of a "funk" to the flavor. It was borderline too sweet. Also stronger than many beers of this genre. Looked pretty much like any other AAL. Wouldn't seek it out again, but if one were offered to me I might not refuse it.

Look - Pours a clear straw color, a thin crackly white head dissolves immediately, no lacing.
Aroma - Vaguely tin-like, watered down vegetable broth.
Taste - Watery, thin grain, slightly metallic, no bitterness, very mild but sweet alcohol on the finish.
Feel - Light-Medium bodied, fizzy.

Overall - Cheap and does the job. Gotta be ice cold.

Pours pale straw with quickly dissapating head.
The aroma is cereal grains, corn, and a little bit of Apple.
The flavor is grain, sweet white bread, and apple juice with almost no bitterness.
It's refreshing and good for what it is, it's just not a super flavorful style.

I'll never forget my first and only experience with this beer. My older brother had a party at my house and someone left one of these in the fridge. I saw the cool looking black can and i thought this was going to taste amazing, so i saved it for a special occasion. It may have been months later, but eventually that occasion happened and i remember being so excited to try it and when i did i remember having one sip and gently placing it in the garbage can at the party.

A coors spin off that is drinkable and not offensive. Smooth to the feel and not overly bitter nor sweet. No bad for a medium SG adjunct. Refreshing when ice cold for a thirst quencher. These ice beers are growing on me. How about a super hopped up ice beer.

Bought a 24oz can $1.99 Longs Drugs
Clear golden color
Light mouthfeel
Light carbonation
Sweet corn, grain taste
Overall not for me. It does hide the higher alcohol well adn the lighter taste is good for a hot day, but I think I would take a Bud Ice or Bud Light over this.

So this is my ice beer night, for reasons I will not go into. Golden color, no head. Nose was scary but the taste actually kind of made sense. Grainy, but not bathed in booze. It is by no means good, but for what it is, you could do much worse.
