3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly neutral nose. Somewhat of a sweet, but not really malty impression. Bit of fruitiness (apple cider) and alcohol. Flavor is on par with what the nose indicates. Very mild, but slightly tart apple fruitiness and only a hint of malt and hops. Carbonation is intense, but not brutal, and serves to cleanse the palate on the short finish.
Overall, a pretty good ’Ice’ beer that’s stronger than some ’Malt Liquors’ and easier to drink than some brand-name ’Light beers.’

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. A clear, pale golden beer topped by a small, white head. The aroma has mostly fruityness and corn, with some metallic notes. Not much of neither hops nor malts in the flavor, with bitterness missing big time. Corn and some fruityness in the flavor, thin on the palate, with a very low carbonation. Rather bad finish with cooked corn dominating. Super-uninteresting this one. 150616

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, corn, apples and metal. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with a long metallic finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

25 oz can after more painting.
Dark straw color with a smallish head. Light grainy malt with hints of corn and green apple. Crisp light refreshing beverage with little body. Easy to swill, great on a hot day, but huge lack of flavor.

The only thing this brew has going for it is the price which is cheap. I’m wondering how much malt is really in it compared to fermented corn sugars. Hops, what hops? Seriously , a bad Ice Beer is just a terrible Malt Liquor ’flying under the radar’ so to speak.

Rubbing alcohol with wet grain. Some cardboard and a headache buzz. No taste or finish if anything good.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice darker than normal straw color. Pretty good head to start, blink and it’s gone. Lacing is not enough to report.
Smells like corn and grain, and perhaps a little bit of alcohol. No other really noteable characteristics.
Tastes like most ice beers I’ve had. Reminds me particularly of Bud Ice. Tastes of corn, and light hops. It’s not particularly flavorful, but it’s not bad.
Mouthfeel is medium. It’s okay. Maybe slightly oily. It’s smooth, it’s pretty drinkable. It’s well carbonated and I can feel the gas bubbling in ma’ belly! But it is smooth, as most ’ice’ beers are, and I rated it as such.
Overall it’s a cheap get drunk beer. It is what it is, and it’s not terrible. I would drink it again.

Pours a transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Aroma of corn, sour dough. Taste of corn, bread. Smoother than other ice beer offerings. Pretty much a cheap beer for after yard work or watching TV or hanging with friends.

More grain tea but with an added horrid astringency. Ash like and super fizzy. Need to take gas x after this. Nothing good at all. Just good price, but life is too short to drink crappy beer.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I suspect this is really Icehouse that did not turn out right. The only discernible aromas are alcohol and aluminum. The taste is some heavy funky grain, mildly sweet, and not finishing clean or well. Thankfully the carbonation is light or this could be substituted for syrup of ipecac. Overall: reserved solely for transients and high-schoolers.
