Had it a million times before, but let's review... Ever so slightly darker than the light version with a faster dissipating head. Actually not half bad. Less than two fingers on an aggressive pour into a glass, darker golden hue. Sweetish on the nose. Smells much better than the Light version. Baked bread, slight sugar cookies, very slight. No adjuncts or corn, maybe a bit of rice (?). Nothing special, but definitely not unpleasant. Taste is SLIGHT banana, breadish, again, sweeter than the light. Mouth feel is a bit slicker and more even. I would absolutely say that I would take the ICE version over the light any day of the week. Of course, if you aren't a fan of anything heavier than a light beer, this will not suit your palate. And nothing against that. I happen to be an ICE style fan when it is done right. And I feel this is better than Natty or Bud Ice any day.

I had never had this before so i had no expectations. I knew it would taste similar to Coors because it is brewed by them. The look is the basic straw color you get with macro's. I actually like the smell of these beers, it smells like creamed corn and buttery rice.
Taste was very similar, tastes a lot like rice and corn. Little bit of sweet bread on the back. Fairly carbonated like most Macro's. There is a bit of a frosted feeling in the throat after a few of these. No extreme flavor profile but I don't expect that with a low-priced beer. This is not great for the taste compared to craft beer but it is most excellent on very hot days, very refreshing ice cold. 5.9% ABV perfect for lawn games. Give this a solid B for the value, price, refreshment, and drinkability.

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.
