Your standard adjunct lager, but this one had an especially noticeable corn smell that I find to be off putting. Not very enjoyable.

Poured from a 22 OZ can into a pint glass. this has no true beer aroma. The color is a golden yellow and the taste is grain or corn infused carbonation. This beer is made for one thing, drink a few to forget the day, well: there is always the Christmas gift for someone you don’t really care for.

355ml vented can. 5.5%abv. Clear pale yellow in the glass, thin trace of white foam on top. Aroma is grainy. Taste is grains with a little sweetness. Watery in the finish, bland grainy aftertaste. Fizzy in the mouth. Industrial.

"better than other Keyestone’s only cuz it’s stronger, and the alcohol covers up a tiny bit of the bad taste that will undoubtedly stay in you’re mouth for far too long. yuck."

I LOVE this beer! It’s crisp and refreshing. Color is slightly darker than most domestic lagers. It actually says "ALE" on the side of the can. Suppose they use ale yeast? Refreshing when you don’t want a thick heavily hopped beer. Gives a good buzz, whereas KEYSTONE LIGHT you must drink at least 6 cans to even get a slight buzz. Keystone ICE goes down easy.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass for the review but have had this more than enough times over the years out of the can. The appearance was a clear yellow color with lots of carbonation bubbles seen rising. The head was about a finger’s worth of white bubbliness that just died without leaving any lacing whatsoever. The smell had an "iced corn" that comes across fairly sweet. The taste was sweet with nothing really off. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Overall, hey, not as bad as I had thought. Definitely, one of the better "iced" pale lagers.

Sampled with family. Thankfully they drink all the crap and I don’t have to pay for it. As far as the beer, pale yellow, grainy, corn, skunk, one of the worst.

Transfer from BA review on 3-29-12 - Poured from can into pint glass Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head fades very fast giving way to almost no lacing. Smell – Some rather unappealing aromas of cardboard and metal shards mixed with a very light corn aroma. Taste – A very crisp taste meets the tongue. It is mainly sweeter corn malt in nature but has a slight bready flavor as well. Toward the end there is a light papery taste, but it is very light. Overall I was a bit surprised as it was a crisper and more refreshing taste then the nose let on. Mouthfeel – It has a lighter body with a slightly above average carbonation level. It is very much what you would expect. Overall – It really has nothing going for it except its crispness. This would be good for right after a run or hard bike on a hot summer day when you want something without too complex a body and that is very crisp and easy to sit, relax, and cool down with.

Look. If you buy a Keystone, any Domestic beer, an Imported beer or even some IPA’s. You’re trying to take your mind off of things, catch a buzz and unwind. Otherwise WTF are you drinking beer for? Drink strawberry soda if you want amazing flavor. This beer isn’t the greatest flavors for beer. But it’s 24oz of beer for $1, and you get near 6% abv which is what truly matters in any beer. Would you drink a super flavorful beer with 0% abv? Prolly not. Otherwise you’d be drinking O’Douls. It sucks. But not as much as when you only have water and really need a beer. And lets not forget. The first beers ever produced. Probably weren’t IPA’s or masterpeices. They were beer. And beer sometimes is beer.

Mild lemon and applesauce nose. Crystal clear yellow, thick head, good lacing. Watered down apple juice initially, ending with a surge of malted and unmalted grain. A little soapy. Really quite serviceable and something I may actually buy again if I find myself in a convenience store somewhere in Bumblescum and absolutely have to have a beer.
