You see this can and it just exudes pure class. Iím speechless. The beer inside is wonderful as well. Itís got a metallic note which seems to come from hops, which is a good sign because that means they used hops or some sort of hop extract in the making of this beverage. Itís a bit sweet and very fizzy, which makes it come off a bit watery. The taste is not altogether bad tasting w/ lost of mineral character from the water. Normally, this mineral taste is something I associate w/ very fine pilseners and the like but I suppose water softening costs money so Iím unsurprised to find it in a cheap beer also. Overall, I reckon this beer is kinda good but in a bad way.

Patrickctenchi (5454) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Can: Clear, gold, white foamy head. Sweet corn, honey, grain scent. Sweet corn malt, barley, water....artificial sweeteners..watery, apple-y/fruit taste. Probably much better if there was actual ice in it......like, a slushy....and itís 92 degrees out......and you just donít care anymore....you know, THAT kind of beer......MMMMM-Melanie !!!!!

shrubber85 (9642) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2015
24 ounce can. Corny barley malt and straw aroma. Medium yellow with large white head. Sweet corn syrup malt and light straw flavor. Crap for body. Awful - another crap lager from City. Typically would expect a cleaner, lighter beer with the "ice" connotation, but alas it was not to be.

Milwaukee Special Reserve Ice has an initially medium, off-white head (which fizzes away, much more like a soft drink than a beer), a clear, somewhat bubbly, straw appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of wet straw, and the flavor is of cheap, store-brand grape drink, wet straw, green apple, with even a touch of hop bitterness at the back end. Mouthfeel is light, and Milwaukee Special Reserve Ice finishes semi-dry and unappealing. But, I was able to choke it down. RJT
