Pale golden straw pour with a white head. Corn, apple juice, grape juice, and metal on the nose. Sweet bread, sugar, grass, and a bit of water. The flavor is sweet, sugary, and a bit metallic. Water, grass, corn, apple juice, and grape juice. Tastes like diabetes in pale lager form.

Tastes like getting into medical school -- as a cadaver.
Admittedly was inexpensive. 12 ounce can from Lowes.

Tasted from 24oz can into snifter, poured the rest into a batch of white chili. Poured a crystal-clear pale gold color with weak white foam. Aromas and flavors were pure corn adjuct sweetness, lots remaining after fermentation which left is much to sweet. Not to mention barely any hops bitterness to balance it out. Rough, unfinished, but not completely offensive. It still had a pretty clean, dry lager finish. Tasted like your Grandpa’s camping beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Game Day Ice has a very thick, white head and a clear, golden appearance, with some lacing. Aroma is strong on sweet corn, grain husks, and barley. Taste is sweet, corn syrup, barley, somewhat cloying, and it also has a very slight hop bitterness; the IBU must be very low with this one. Mouthfeel is hefty and full, and Game Day Ice finishes ragged, sweet, and mostly dry. For a cheap, budget, store-brand beer, this is not bad. It might be something to pick up if the price is right. Overall, it’s okay.

Many a man will spend an entire lifetime waiting for greatness to bestow itself upon him; and indeed, many a man will still be waiting as he lies dying. Thanks to GameDay Brewing Co. out of LaCrosse, WI, however, our long wait mustn’t be in vain.
Drinking GameDayIce is like the first time you watched Star Wars; it’s scoring the game-winning goal in overtime of Game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals; it’s eiffel-towering Megan Fox with your boy Jesus. The aroma is reminiscent of Bavaria in the springtime; the appearance is a soft golden blonde that speaks to its agricultural heritage in the lush valleys of Wisconsin; the taste is nothing less than pure essence of flavor; the palate is a tingling ecstasy like that of young love.
In life, one will remember the rare moments that changed his destiny: the birth of a child, the loss of a loved one, the 2011 NFL season when Tim Tebow proved that God is indeed real.
But it is certain that all of these moments will become as irrelevant as your mother-in-law’s birthday after you experience your first sip of GameDayIce. The road of life is winding and often perplexing; but fear not, as long as you recall the only mantra of contemporary times that can be considered absolute: Everyday is GAMEDAY.

OK i know im gonna regret this.
12 oz from Grocery Outlet. circa 30 cents
Served as cold as possible without it freezing and from the can.
Aroma..not as bad as exepected/..paper and cooked veggies.
Taste nothing much..green apple, grape, cereal..alcohol bitterness at the end actually helps.
For style the palate is OK
Not as bad as anticipated..but not good..drink it COLD and fast

Not a lot of flavor here, but at $5 a dozen at Big Lots, the 5.5 abv and easy drinkability make it worthwhile as long as it’s VERY cold and you’re VERY broke. Since I have a freezer that works and I’m usually fuckin’ busted flat, it works for me now and then. However, brews like Steel Reserve, T.J.’s Malt Likker (aka, Simpler Times Lager) and Stack "High Gravity" bring a better buzz-for-the buck.
Having said all that, I’d still take Game Day Ice over crap like Sammy Adams!

12 pack at Grocery outlet. Bought it for the sole purpose of beer pong. Watery and aroma of corn. Not good at all.

I’m not sure what this stuff is. The Carton Claims it is an "Ice ALE" Got it at Grocery Outlet for 2.99 a twelve pack. Well I was pretty sure it wasn’t going to be "good" and well, I was right. I’ve had worse, but it’s been a while since I had anything like it. You Get What You Pay For!
Aroma sort of corn, not much to t
Appearance the head came and went practically before I put the can in the trash. Color isn’t bad.
The Taste is almost indescribable. Hops are virtualy non-existant and the flavors are on the sweet side of burnt grain (I think). Not what you’d call anything clean tasting or refreshing. It is drinkable, but just barely. I won’t ever get it again. There’s cheap 32 ouncers out there to waste money on that’d be better than this stuff. If your down to your last few bucks till payday, go get some Miller or Bud Ice quarts before getting this.

24 fl. oz can #076O-1226. The pour is a highly agitated yellow with a fizzy white head the pops away little by little to nothing. The aroma is a weird stale maltiness with a sour grape or apple note. The body is better than watered down but not quite in the medium range. The taste has this sour overripe fruit thing going on with a light hop bite. Weak.
