Very clear coppery pour with quite a bit of clingy lacy head. Scent is not good. It smells like stale beer. Like walking into a bar near the university that obviously hasn’t been cleaned nearly enough. No seriously this is not a good smell. This is what your pants smell like the morning after a night with much spillage. It’s the smell you hope isn’t on you when you are driving home after having more than you should. Yeah this is off to a good start. The taste is better than that scent. Well I think so. This doesn’t really have a taste. It’s all aftertaste. Going down it’s wet. Then you get hit by an aftertaste of sweet malts, a touch of caramel. But not that good, hey my porter has a nice sweet tone to it, but in the why does this beer suddenly have a sweet aftertaste kind of way. Yeah, good beer this is not. I’m amazed this has only like 6 ratings and I have to assume this is due to the face some people follow the "if you can’t say anything nice" rule still.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 $11.99 for 36. Fairly typical swill appearance. Smells of sweetness, metallic notes and corn. Tastes sweet... like racing fuel bubble gum additive smells and mouthfeel is surprisingly harsh, but not overly so. Effectively, it is the epitome of ice beer.

This was my first ice beer. I can’t say too much about it. It was drinkable, it really was. It doesn’t come close to most, but on a budget it’s the best you’ll come by. It’s pretty much a typical beer. Very hard to find in the bible belt.

Patrickctenchi (4255) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2013
24 oz. can: Slightly hazed gold with a frothy, off-white head. Lemony-sweet grain malt aroma. Ridiculously sweet flavor. Sugary, corny, grain malt, aluminum. Awful.... and OH! Look! Minhas had a hand in this....what a surprise... Just bad, bad, bad... I hope my $1.38 for this enables them to buy a helpful brewer’s guide or a can of neon spray paint to tag, "CLOSED" on the side of their building..... Sorry, that’s harsh...but damn.....their stuff is terrible.

Boxer ice is drastically better than boxer lager, and it is not a bad beer for the price.

Metalchopz (2452) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Second cheap Ice beer today in cans (the other being the Keystone Ice). Pours a little more golden than the other. Head is way better as well - way more retention and some lacing everywhere. Aromas of malts, adjuncts and hints of honey. Again, better scent, but where this one goes wrong is the taste. Sweet malty mouth with some more adjuncts and then, the same club soda feel. So, a better looking beer, but the taste kind of does not sit well in the stomach. The Keystone is easier going down.

I love ultra-cheap beers, and this is one of the best in its class (or lack thereof). 12 oz can from a $12.98 36-pack pours a clear goldendcolor with a lasting white head and even some lacing. Smells like corn syrup but tastes better. I’m used to the regular Boxer lager, but will gladly switch from that to Boxer Ice for my daily swill. Same price, slightly higher ABV and less revolting taste, (and much better than Icehouse or Natural Ice). "Tis a no-brainer for the impecunious who can still afford to buy 36 at a time.
