Tall boy can @ home poured into my Zwanze Day tulip. Pours a clear golden appearance with a small white head. Heavy corn, dust, and metal in the nose. Watery, lightly boozy but easily swillable flavor. Some corn and fruits but really just melted yellow snow that gets you fucked up on a budget.

Hello to the Ratebeer community as I have received much critical saying because of too much complaining about hohum ratings without literary valor. I rate the the Bude Ice because I was to get a buzz and i had an extra 2 dollars to make sure buzz was complete after purchasing good beer which was Le Fin Du Monde - a very special beer. Firs t thought when pouring and sniffing of Bud Ice is I proclaim "this smell like ass". While ass can have special scent when with beaut clean woman - this is not of which I speak. This is the ass of which homeless patron of street or even Fondue cheese maker smell of ripe old ass and dirty sock mixture. Once drinking, it has special flavor of barely any abundant portion and I will drink 32 ounce of it to complete buzz and understand why web page I am finding has men who like to ejaculate into their moms shoes. I love you and have a special evening.

Aroma is very corny and sweet- almost bubblegum sweet. Appearance is gold with scant white head. Flavor is the ultra-sweet corn water flavor that one always seeks in a cheap macro lager. Palate is wimpy bubbly. Pretty bad.

24oz can - pours pale gold with quickly diminishing white head. Nose is rice. Flavor adds bread. Light sweetness and equal parts bitter. Not offensive. Light to medium body. Slightly exceeded expectations.

I remember trying this first in September, 2001, and downing it like it was hotcakes, which is the only reason I remember drinking it. For some reason I didn’t realize it was crappy until I tried it again last year, 2011. It’s just bad, don’t think I’ll drink it again until 2021, just to keep the tradition alive.

Big boy can. Pours clear pale gold with average, frothy white head; decent retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is what you’d expect, heavy corn and straw malt. Flavor matches the nose and is your typical cheap, american lager; dry, corn finish. Light body and low carbonation.

Can. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is sour grain and spicy hops. Flavor is slightly alcoholic grain water with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Acquired a 24oz can of this somehow. Poured into pint glass a bright golden color with fast disappearing white head. Aroma of cereal and skunked hops. Taste adds wonderful notes of some metal and corn. Light body with some lingering aftertaste. Well that’s one more pale lager checked off, yick.

Looks like urine in the clear bottle. Cannot rule out that is what I am actually drinking. This stuff is bad enough that I wouldn't even drink it in college. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
