Nothing better than a random beer in a can from southern Ontario airlifted to the arctic.... price be darned! Looks okay, decent level of foamy head and bubbly macro-lager goodness in the body. Soft aroma of sweet rotten corn stench with barely a hint of cardboard. Flavour has some strong fruity esters and adjuncts thrown in with a citrusy and bitter finish. Dry, at least. While it’s totally not great, it’s much better than the other macro I’ve been drinking up her for the last couple of months (and thus my relatively highy rating might be just celebrating a bit of variety!).

This is not the greatest beer nor is the worst. It’s pretty good for a discount beer.. I’ve had better discount beers, but overall it’s good. I’d suggest it.

473ml can. Pours a nice clear straw colour with a medium white head. Aroma is malt and alcohol. Flavour is slightly sweet malt. Finish is a mild off putting bitterness.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de légumes bouillis sucrés, de grains de malt pâle sucrés, léger de maïs sucré avec des notes chimiques sucrées et quelques traces herbeuses (gazon mouillé). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aqueuse et aux faibles notes huileuses. Goût de légumes bouillis sucrés avec un léger goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un moyen goût de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût métallique et chimique avec des traces herbeuses (gazon mouillé). Post-goût court, composé d’un léger goût chimique sucré.

(drain pour and ticks’ night) last one, ugh. pours clear pale yellow with a decent white head, little retention. apple juice and booze, herbal notes, faint cereals, hint of chemicals and wet cardboard with boiled veggies. aggressive carbonation, light body - watery altough it hides (well) some texture, very short and bland herbal finish. weak for sure.

I don’t know what the fascination is with ice lager is but I’m sure the last place to give it a try is on a discount brand. This one almost made me sick.

NOthing much to say just a regular lager need to be extra cooled and nice foam and bubbles also.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 19, 2012
For this rating - a 900 milestone - I decided instead of rating the beer, I’d let the beer rate me. It was difficult at first to communicate with the beer, but after some deep thinking (read drinking), I came upon just the right psychological medium to communicate with the few yeast still alive in my tin can of Laker Ice. Here it is: The guy drinking me seems to turn a pale colour after taking his first sip, almost deathly if I had to choose an adjective. He smells a little drunk - I feel like I’m not being accorded all the proper respect due to a beer that rates in the tenth percentile of the distinguished category of pale lager. Just think of the multitude of lagers that rate worse than me... His appearance is a little offensive. After sipping, he pulls his lower jaw back in some sort of attempt to close off the top of his throat to any further invasion. He squints his eyes and looks around as if someone else is responsible for this digression in taste. His stomach churns after I flow down his throat, clearly offended by a perceived sense of mistreatment. His palate is pasty - there is far too much slobber floating around in his mouth to make an honest rating here. Overall solidfunk is a bad recipient of the yellowy, high-carbonated bliss I have to offer him in the lager department. A pity.

reebtogi (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
473ml can pours a pale straw color with a 2 finger white head that settles almost as quickly as its poured. Aroma is grainy malts and grassy hops. Taste is more of the same. Typical macro brew.

Metalchopz (2120) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2012
Originally rated September 2005. Bought in the cheapy single section of the LCBO. Pours a golden colour with hardly any carbonation. The white head dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lace. The nose seems like alcohol, metallic water and grains. The taste is slightly bitter and bites a bit with the alcohol, then goes into this clean dry aftertaste with hints of corn. Pretty refreshing and easy drinkability, but hits the spot... and you feel it without seeing it come.
