0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Looks like urine in a glass. Aroma is dry, bitter and metallic. Some corn as well. Flavor doesn’t exist save some stale hops and harsh grains. Odd sweetness. Not good.

The only saving grace for the bud ice beers is that the alcohol content is high, to facilitate effective funneling.

Pours fizzy golden with a white head. Much the same as its big brother Bud Ice only with less alcohol.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
It was on clearance so i gave it a shot. It had a skunky taste like an even lower quality Bud Light, but it got me pretty floored

Sampled during Swig-a-Swill Guzzler in St Paul, MN. Pretty much the same as Bud Ice except with more water and less metallic palate. Possibly a good beer entry for Skyview’s Golden Frozen Tankard Award contest.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is another clear yellow to the pour with a hint of sweet corn. The tatse is watery and best drank real cold and fast to get drunk.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Sour barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Creamy barley/roasted corn malt - reminds me of a Tijuana street tortilla (one might consider that good or bad - personally I’ve had some great times there). Strange that the light style has more flavor than the regular. Still, I thought the point of ice beers was to get a higher alcohol level.
