This beer looked pretty good until I realized the head was mostly made of ice crystals. When a beer is this nasty you have to put it in the freezer for a little while to tame the awfulness inside. It didn't work for this one...

Pale gold, completely transparent. No visible carbonation, which is disturbing.
Once the head fades, there's a dull lumpy scum on the surface that looks like a scab.
Look at that lacing guys. Just kidding. Swirling it just makes it look like dish soap.

Smells like a wet dog with irritable bowels. Sulfur, metal, rotting vegetables.

Tastes very sweet and metallic. Spent fireworks and rotting corn silage.
Wine yeast, artificial sweet apple flavoring, envelope glue.
Mellow carbonation due to the freezer treatment, which thankfully allowed me to choke down a few sips of this to review, before dumping the rest down the drain. Back to the sewer where it belongs... One of the worst beers I've tasted.

Taste: Semi sweet caramel malt, smooth finish, mild malt nose. Gold, clear, with white head and lacy ring of lace. Lite body. mellow boating beer for an Ice beer.

Admirably lacks that piercing alcohol/ice-brewed bite beers like Bud Ice and Milwaukee's Best Ice have, which makes a bit smoother (and even cheaper).

Poured from a can. It didn't look like anything was wrong in the glass. I was expecting some really basic sort of lager. But the flavors were akin to a can of beer you found in an abandoned ramshackle house out in the country. Sickly sweet malt notes that linger far too long. Yuck.

This is truly one of the great beers that I have stumbled across while spending countless hours perusing the beer aisles at my local liquor store. The first thing that grabbed my attention was the incredible value of this beer. Given the low price, when this golden beverage first kisses my lips I can't help but feel like I am stealing something. Then I remember that I in fact did. It isn't easy to smuggle the cans out of the store given their size but if you are able to do it, you'll find it worth your time. With a sweet and playful flavor, this beer brings me back to my younger days and pairs well with any summertime dish. Looking to jazz things up, add some lemonade mix and just like magic you are drinking a delicious summer shandy! Overall I would give this beer a big recommend.

12 oz can
Budweiser Pint Glass

Honey gold with chill haze, creamy head of 3 fingers that diminishes quicker than Premium, though has better retention at 1/2 finger. No lacing or alcohol legs.

Nice banana and strawberry on the nose, with hints of starchy corn ethanol and dusty grain.

Full flavored lager with hints of strawberry, apple jacks, sweet biscuit, golden graham, and some raw corn.

Feel is crisp and carbonated, definitely not clean, but has a medium to light body, lighter than Premium, and has less residual starches on the palate than Premium.

Side by side, Kul Ice is the better beer by a mile. The flavor profile is sweeter and more enjoyable than the plain grain that is Kul Premium. You can definitely get buzzed or drunk on a 4 pack of these if you're really poor in Wisconsin.
