Can. Sour, old vegetable malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Primarily a metallic bitterness with light sour malt flavor. Drinkable but just barely. SavageElvis (134) - Savage, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Light yellow in color, small thin white head that fades quickly. Light sweet off smelling corn aroma with a geriatric little hop. As expected it is thin on the palate with a grainy watery, slightly sweet finish but packs a little whollop.

frankly, couldn’t taste the difference between this and busch beer, don’t like it! phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2009
For the price, highest alcohol content in class. Therefore, it achieves exactly what it is meant to do. Like every other ’Ice’ beer, this doesn’t go down as smooth as other cheapies.

Oh my word... I’m not a big fan of ice beers, but this is far from one of the best (though that’s like picking the shiniest turd). duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Even long before I was old enough to drink, I used to shudder at the thought of this beer. Tastes like it was fermented next to a heater in a prison. Actually, that would explain a lot about AB’s beers. This beer really sucks, even more than AB’s other fine offerings. Taste is of corn and rice, and the flavor is of cotton candy mixed with terpentine. Don’t drink this. If you have children in college, call them and tell them not to drink this.

Can. This beer is best used for those times that you’ve run out of cash for crack, and need a good buzz. Otherwise, avoid this beer at all costs. Complete and total crap. Living in Jacksonville FL (home of an A-B brewery) I get to see every mistake A-B makes. This is one of them. Thanks for nothing guys. hayduke (5211) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Tastes just like regular Busch, but nose has a faint hint of lime or something citrus. Basically not a good beer. cazort (565) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2010
This is a competitor for the lowest of the low, but it beats out Natural Light because it doesn’t give me a splitting headache after a single can the way that beer does. Also, less heavy and disgusting than miller high life.
Overall, about on par with coors light, but a very different character. This is a heavy beer, strong, high alcohol content.
In my opinion, this is the worst I’ve tried, however, among the "ice" beers. I strongly prefer milwaukee’s best ice (if I’m going to be drinking one, honestly they’re not something I’d usually choose on my own. That one has a stronger alcohol character to it...and in this one the alcohol is less noticeable, more masked...but it’s masked by a nasty, sour taste that is, in my opinion, worse than the alcohol.
I do not recommend this one.
