It's an "okay" in my opinion, but maybe because I got it 1 month past best by date for only 7 bucks for a 12-pack. Still... it was not skunky or bad. That said, I would never get this stuff at retail prices.

So, my freshman year at college was when the concept of ice beer became a thing. This was one of the first and most popular of the ice beers. I didn't really get it then (among many other things), and I definitely don't get it now. I do remember the green bottles, like many Molson products. But this is my ice beer night so let's go!

Pours straw yellow with a head that at least temporarily fills my mason jar. Nose is grainy but not offensive. Taste is similar. Not a ton of booze or adjunct, this pretty close to the drinkable zone. Relatively crisp and over-carbonated, but you could do much worse. I mean, it is what it is, but it's actually pretty good for an ice beer. My college years don't seem like as much of a total waste now, which is a plus.

From notes taken 01/17/17:

Amber-toned light gold color, quite clear with steady stream of bubbles to replenish and otherwise weaker head of off-white. Decent net-like lacing. On nose, a pleasant breadiness. Also some esters or fusels or alcohols, just a tad fruity and in my opinion, not so pleasant. I’m somewhat dreading this, too much like a Malt Liquor, but I knew that before I opened it. Thankfully, none of that is very strong for too long, but moving on to tasting. Palate is a little better than I expected. Much of what was described for nose, but a strong crackery backbone and floral to to herbal to nearly rindy suggestions. Still a little too sweet, but not in the way of honey, more so just a general malt and booze sweetness. Light to almost medium in body, with a fun sloshy and gulpy effervescence. Better than a Malt Liquor for sure, and even a number of regular Adjunct/Pale Lagers but I can’t really compare it to the non-existent list of other Ice-Brewed Adjunct Lagers I have had.

This beer is decent for the style. Flavor is pretty bland. Smell is average. Overall it's easy drinking, cheap and strong wich is why I purcahsed it.

Decent white head atop a dark-ish (for style, anyway) brew; fair amount of carbonation activity in the form of tiny bubbles. Smell is what you'd expect: malt and grossness. The taste is acceptable until you swallow; at that point, you get a bad grain bill combined with cheap alcohol. The mouthfeel is fine, but maybe that's a product of wanting to get it down the hatch as soon as possible.

A dry, cornhusk flavor, with some bittering hops at the end. This is an ICE beer, and a damn good one for the money. I bought mine in a can. There is no skunk.
