Basically a slightly more manageable version of regular iron city. More pale yellow look. Smells more grainy and less sweet. Tastes a bit less like antifreeze. More corn juice flavor. More foreward carbonation. Not as bad.

Poured from a 24 oz. can. Has a very pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, grains. Taste is bland and boring, some corn, very light malts. Feels watery in the mouth and overall is nothing offensive, just lacking in flavor of any kind.

This beer bring back memories. this was our go to at the ski lodge when my college buddies and i went snowboarding. 3 dollars for a pounder. Not a bad brew, refreshing, clean, and somewhat tasty.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Very weak smelling concoction, it smells like a watered down left over beer from the night before.
Appearance- A very pale golden yellow.
Taste- Non-descript at best, very watery
Palate- A light bodied beer that has some medium carbonation
Overall- Well, this is off my list of beers to try. At least I get the beer credit for drinking one. I will not drink this again.

Can you make a worse beer, I doubt it. Take the worst of the macros, water it down and make it more unappealing, that's IC Light. Best thing of moving away from pittsburgh is leaving IC Light behind.
