Overall, a good drinking lager. Purchased in the "monster can" (710mL) from LCBO in Ontario.

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

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.

710ml supercan poured a pale straw color with a big white head that settled quickly and left virtually no lacing. Aroma is grain. Taste is sweet corn and an undesirable hoppy bitterness. A below average lager.

TaktikMTL (6031) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2011
Canette de 710 ml achetée à la LCBO (Ottawa, ONT). Arôme: Très légère odeur de céréales. Apparence: La couleur est blonde avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût fruité. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: La corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #3606)

ccex (961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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.

Metalchopz (2409) - 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.

710ml monster can from the lcbo. pours golden with a nice white head. it actually looks pretty good. very sweet aroma, pretty syrupy. the flavour follows suit. tons of sugar in the adjunts bomb. like a poorly made triple.

Bricks (640) - Delaware, USA - JAN 8, 2014
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.

710 ml can from LCBO location #200, Argyle Mall, London, ON- Labeled as "MONSTER CAN". This newest addition to the LCBO shelves fits in nicely in the beer fridge. I think it fits perfectly between the Labatt Maximum Ice 40s and the giant cans of Steeler. And much like Steeler, this beer also has a "union made" logo on it. That naturally means a quality product, right? Sadly, it is not to be. To be honest here, I don’t mind sampling these welfare lagers. I really enjoy trying all new things, if for no other reason than to see what other people are drinking, and seeing what it tastes like. After all, I work in the industry. I should be able to engage my customers in proper service knowledge. Now on to the beer. This is a poor product. While the regular Boxer Lager wasn’t offensive, this one is on the border. Decants a very pale and transparent yellow. Looks like coors light. This beer pours an unnaturally large head.....about 6 inches of billowing bleached white froth. Just as unnatural, it dissipates to a very thin ring in about 3 seconds. This is a tell tale sign of many adjuncts. Not surprising. A simple aroma tells all. Green apple, fusel alcohol, and grass are the front runners, but there are notes of orange wet paper. In terms of flavour, it isn’t the worst pale lager I’ve had, but sheesh, this is very much like a malt liquor. Sweet grassy flavours mingle with fusel alcohol, green apple, sugary pale malts, candy. Odd. Very sweet and surprisingly hefty for a 5.5% pale lager. I’d even go as far as saying it is full bodied.Finishes oily, sugary, with a heft of booze I’d expect in an 8 or 9% malt likka. Down the drain it goes. You can thank me for taking one for the team.
