16oz can Pours clear golden with a white head and an aroma of corn and blah. Taste of grains and corn. This light bodied brew was pretty nasty.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Straw color with a rather large and lasting white head. Minimal nose, with some scents of corn flour paste and touch of herbal hops. Rather dull feel, but nothing too offensive. Sweet grain and corn flavors. Some white grape and mild alcohol also in the mix. I think I detected a bit of malt for fleeting moment in the linger between quaffs, but far to brief to be memorable. I like tiggmtl comment of an inoffensive alcohol delivery system, but I do find a few things less than inoffensive.

This liquid has the distinguished honor of being the most foul "beer" I have ever tasted.

Golden/amber color. Almost no head when poured. Odor of alcohol is overwhelming. The box it came in looked like a re-labeled shoe box. Drinkability is very low as every sip gives a very offensive taste.

Smells terrible. It is a crappy beer along the lines of natty. Its only saving grace is the fact that it is slightly better than Natty. Of course when you get that bad, it is really just splitting hairs.

Has a little bit of a bite to it. Very alcoholic aftertaste. Big bang for the buck but that bang isn’t a real good one.

12 oz can. Bought a 6 pack of this to cook my brats in. Clear golden color. Head was white and disappeared quickly. Smelled of hay and husky grain. Flavor was similarly unappealing; grainy and salty (yes salty). It burned the back of my throat a bit as it went down.

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2011 12 oz silver and blue can. Had this before and found it difficult to stomach. Cheap, 33 cents per can at the Beer 4 Less in Moon. Looks like any other pale yellow american lager. I really didn’t want to taste this but the opportunity presented itself. Pop the lid and you get a whiff of sweet hints, it is pretty strong, maybe sweet corn. Odd, but I think I smell raw meat, too! Then, when you pour it into the glass the smell gets a little like acrid rotten corn. Taste is a little unexpected for a lager but right up the alley for an ice or inexpensive malt liquor. Difficult to enjoy is an understatement. I guess I should be ashamed for rating such a brew. I see there are only 21 ratings posted. The taste is a little harder than one would expect, a little rocky, mind you. Coarse to say the least. That funky ring of a head shows itself every drink from the foam that rises within. Finish has little alcohol hiding ability. I have read other raters write about ’corn’ and this definately is more cornlike than any other beer I’ve rated. Would not care to purchase this again. Industrial beer that can do the expecting job if drunk quickly. Will not buy again, one of the worse economy beers I’ve tasted, and I am the economy beer expert. At first the corny smell and flavors are sweet and interestingly attractive - then it becomes almost vulgar. Somewhat similar on the taste scale as King lager from austrailia. Ice has become known in the lager arena to be higher in alky for the cheap american beers. High alky at the expense of a gentleman like lager taste.

24 oz. can, sold in Michigan as Big City Ice. Looks like yet another malt likker from the boyz in LaCroix. The usual sickly medicinal adjunct smell. A color only slightly darker than the usual pale lager. Pours a thin head than disappears immediately, successive pours will not raise it again. Total see-through look of heavy filtering and pasteurization. Taste seems intended to deliver even its minimal alcohol payload with the most effectiveness. Sweet, corny, full of fusels to set you up for a hangover, with no gratification before it.
