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.

Ugly adjunct yellow lager color. Aroma was corn and alcohol. Taste was not bad for what it is, the skunkiness is kind of my jam, so it helps out here where it hurt in the aroma. Mouthfeel is more corn, lots of carbonation. This is totally tolerable when it is super cold.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at a dive bar in Willow grove, PA. The appearance is a clear, light golden color with a tiny white head. The flavor is BMC but with a heavy bite. This is the least flavorful Molson product I have had (and I have had Molson XXX). Not horrible, but there are better Molson products out there.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy bright white head that quickly reduces to large patch of thin film covering about 80% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet grainy malts and corn adjuncts with just a hint of wheat. There is a very light aroma of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of sweet grainy malts, corn adjuncts adding a touch of sweetness, and a hint of wheat. There is something slightly metallic mid palate and just a hint of grassy hops which imparts a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin.

O: This was a nostalgia purchase - we drank tons of this stuff in college in the mid-1990s due to the higher ABV for the same price (it was also the hey day of the Ice American Adjunct lager). I have more fond memories of the beer than it tastes/smells when having it today. Not too bad, pretty easy to drink.

Pours a light golden color with a nice lace of head. Smell is of super sweet adjunct aromas. Putrid at best. Taste is like all other adjunct lagers, but with fusel alcohols added. Goes down dry with a bitter aftertaste. One of the worst adjunct lagers I've had, and probably the worst Ice beer I've had. This one is gonna be hard to finish.

All about that urine yellow aal color flow, 11th graaaade., no retention, no lace. Hard times. The aroma just wafts alcohol all up in yo nose. Is this an ice lager, or a eisbock? Woof. Green bottle brings that skunkiness, which is actually helpful because it obscures some of the almost fusel alcohol.

Taste, a little bit of rubbing alcohol for ya. The colder the better, and I usually loathe cold ass beer. Save it for the pop country lyrics. Brings the bubbles in terms of carbonation. This does get better the more you drink it, but you're in no man's land if you're having to drink more than 12 oz of this in a day.

Canadian beers are great and Molson Ice? Takes the cake as one of the best beers in Canada. Molson Ice is good for two things... drinking... and marinating a roast in it because the flavor is absolutely excellent.

I gave it an overall 4 because it could've been better. I keep buying it because of the swell taste of it. It's not this: "punch you in the kidneys" taste.
