Tmoney99 (10954) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Can. Poured pale color with a minimal fizzy white head that diminished quickly with virtually no lacing. Light grainy sweet aroma. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. I would not recommend this to a freind.

heemer77 (5105) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Can. Poured with a medium gold body and a white head. The ripe vegetable nose was celery and hints of gardening seeds. The primary flavor was a metallic twang. There was also some wood and lightly nutty hints in the finish. Not too bad as it is at least not dominated by corn.

Good sized head and light gold color. Stomach acid aroma. Flavor is light with corn and other grains and chemicals. It could be worse, barely unoffensive.

Looks like a clear pale yellow lager. Aroma is akin to many Melanie beers, cheap lager with an off perfumy sweet aroma. Palate has decent carbonation. Was expecting the taste to be a little more rude than it is. On par with the lager as far as offensiveness goes. All those Melanie Lacross beers have that weird background flavor. Must be due to the water they use. Like many cheap ice beers, goes down, but not really to enjoyably. s4a1t4f3o7

joeneugs (3414) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 27, 2014
12 oz. can. It pours a decent clear yellow gold color with a nice white head that shrinks pretty quickly. The aroma is mostly apples with some very light bready malt, dough and lager yeast. No hops to speak of. The flavor is very light and watery with some hints of uncooked dough and lightly tart and sweet apples. Very plain and watery finish, but thankfully not as sweet as expected. Still not dry though. I can see this going down ok as a substitute for the macros. It may be a step below in quality though if Iím being honest.

CanIHave4Beers (3327) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Can, poured into Ridel Wine glass.

The color is pale and perfectly clear, the head is large, fluffy and white, the head is also fading fast.

The aroma is sweet and corny, not espcially inviting, itís got some acidic canned tomato charcter and more and more alcohol expression as it warms.

The flavor is tinny, not as weird or vegetal as the aroma... Itís fairly boozy, fairly sweet... kind of bland.... Not really a pale lager, not really a Malt Liquor.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear yellow with minimal head. Aroma of grains and corn. Taste is liggt sweet. Mostly corn with a weird aftertaste. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Overall, meh. Not awful, and actually quite poundable.

comes in a can with vertical ribbing down the side, for her pleasure, I presume, "select select" it says on top, with MSR interjected between, ensconsced in a gear-like design. Below that " A fresh, Full-bodied Brew", then bold-face MILWAUKEE, followed by slick cursive "Special Reserve", and a bolder "ICE", followed, finally by "Premium Beer{, which, of course, means nothing. Besides the government and recycling alarms, there is no other information about the beer. So, I will pop it and drink it. Iíve never even heard of this beer before, but then, I donít often go prowling for itís like...still, here we are...clear, bare yellow color, slim, soonĖgone head...not appealing... Aroma: corn and little else...sorry, itís a null set that elicits no pleasure...not a whiff... Taste: blah, blah, blah...wetness is the major caracteristic, followed by faint grain...and thatís all...seriously. Extremely light in body...nothing in the finish, just an avoidance of whatís really a beer...thatís whatís sorely missing...oh, but wait, alcohol is knocking†on the door to my medulla Ýblangata ...and I need a couple more to get seriously drunk and forget the mistakes I made in life, and may have†to face tomorrow†morning...my new favorite beer...hic! hup! Huuurrrlppp!!! P.S. I am so glad that they specially reserved the Ice for this beer,†otherwise....what calamity would ensue!†

24oz can in a plastic bag baby - sweet corn and grain. Not that bad for what it is. Donít regret it.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Cheap swill,but ya gotta love it.Nice golden color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was swet malt and corny with maybe a very slight hint of hops.The taste was much the same with just a bit more sweetness and an off taste that was kind of metallic.Definately there are better brews out there but this one is a must tyry for the hell of it.
