Really doesnít taste like much but like all true HGLís, true color shows as it warms. Cheap and good for a buzz, nothing more.

Can picked up at a 7-Eleven. Medium gold pour with a thick white head that quickly dissipates. Creamed corn aroma. A bit of cake icing. General grains. The taste is apple juice. More grain. Quite syrupy, sweet. Hot finish. Slick mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Overall, not awful.

Harsh. Metallic. Surprisingly light bodied. Little to no aroma, but a clean good looking beer in a glass. Not worth drinking again.

Pours gold with a nice white, bubbly head at first that disappears. Very harsh, metallic aroma with sweet bits of corn. Taste is sweet sugar, corn, grain, banana, clove, almost chewy. Nice light bitterness. Very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
24oz can thanks to womencantsail. Pours a clear yellow, hefty carbonation, medium white foam with some okay lacing. Nose is honey, corn, yellow apple, green jolly rancher. Taste is sweet corn, apple, overripe banana. Palate is denser, not watery, some sugar left over. Not as bad as I expected.

As if icehouse original wasnít bad enough, they had to make a malt liquor version? This stuff tastes like metallic corn water.

Iím not going to waste effort in describing this beer - itís just a strong version of icehouse, at 8% and around $1.50 for a 24oz can, itís a decent deal when you canít drop ~$8 for a decent sixpack. Itís not ever going to win any awards, and itíll give you that dirty day-after porcelain throne cleanse in addition to a hangover if you down more than two. Donít be ashamed for enjoying one once in a while - youíve got to know the bottom to truly appreciate the top.
