From a delightful looking 24oz. can. Easy to find at a local gas station and cheep (sic). An AB product that actually boders on amber in color, clear. Decent white head with bubbles that struggle slightly to burst throught the corny, artificial smelling liquid. Sweet and corny flavors, not really offensive but not something I would sip on either. Fair lacing is left. Distinctive and bold are not monikers I would put on this. Putting aroma aside this would be a good crossover beer for a micro-drinker looking for malt liquor swill.

Clear dull straw colour. Cidery, fusel aroma...oh boy...I’m concerned. As it turns out, I needn’t be. This is bland, watery and sweet. The repulsive elements are confined to the distant background. Light, lifeless. Malt liquor for middle schoolers, this stuff needs a forty ounce bottle and a lot more scunge to rival the OE’s and St. Ides of the world. And if you’re not gunning for the champs, why bother? porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2005
There is a reason it is called Hurricane Ice.
You throw it up like a Hurricane and then you shake like you are Ice cold. How this is classified as a "Pale Lager" is beyond comprehension. The flavor, color, and aroma would scream rat poison to a blind taste test. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2004
First of eight in the eugene malt liqour experiment. Pours like most malt liqours, medium gold with a small fast falling white head. Very little carbonation with light nasty malt aroma. Taste is flat and cheap old malt taste. Light funky fruitiness in the finish, just swill spit texture. Garbbled (24) - Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Cheap! The local convenience store sells it for $.99/24 oz. But just the thought of the stuff gives me a headache. Definitely a chemical smell, like some kind of rug cleaner.

Another good AB brew! think they should have sixers of the stuff available!!!!!!! most of my family drink this stuff. Reid (2673) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Ok spied this in a local grocery store..had to have it cheapest beer in sight 99 cents a 24 oz can.
Poured into a pint mug..it really doesnt look that bad..average for sure but a heck of a lot better than Busch etc...golden beer with small but persistent white head.
The smell is foul though..chemical soup..disturbing..old leather jacket.
Yikes the taste while marginally better than the aroma..is very very sweet..this is like a flat sprite..yukky sick taste on back of tongue.
Horribly cloying on the tongue.
Not drinkable,,this is a drain pour.

Yes, it's true I drank this immediatly after drinking two fine boubon cask aged beers. So sue me. This was crap just like the original hurricane must be. Designed for the ghetto, by the ghetto. This hurricane will blow you away.
