    Yeah it's some pretty average/low scores,. but for swill, it's actually quite good, other than the annoying cloyingness. It's pour is even a tad above average given the type of beer it is. It is what it is. Usually these types of beers are offensive to me out of the glass and should only be drank out of the can(but then how are you gonna get an appearance rating), but this one ain't bad, to the extent I wouldn't mind trying this on draught.

    Not a fan of Busch and wondering why these make their way up in Canada. Alright, seems like Labatt brews it here, and at 5.5% ABV. Expecting this one to be a bit more golden, but no. Pale yellow like their normal version. White head, does last a while and the lacing is pretty good (almost with a creamy edge). Mild aromas of corn and other adjuncts. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel and medium-bodied. Same for the flavours, mild, corn, adjuncts. Nothing really bad here (overall mild) and I can understand why my friend like this one to get drunk on. The Canadian version seems better, judging from the reviews.

    Cheep like busch but has a better taste, good beer to take to football games but needs to be served ice cold. do recommend if not drinking from bottle to pour your can into a glass as can gives off weird taste. Beer is drinkable but the head disappears almost instantly.

    This beer is okay in my book. It's nothing to write home about but it does have a decent flavor, it tastes kinda corn like. I dont know if they use that in their mix but it's a decent taste. You really get use to this beer after a while, drink it almost ice cold and it really improves the flavor, dont even bother trying to drink it a little warm, you'll just throw it up, okay!! Also pour it ina nice glass that you have in your cabinet, it's better in the glass than in the can. I wish they had this on tap at a bar I'd bet that would taste wonderful!

    You must consume this from a glass. When it's in the can, the flavor is funky. The head dissipates so quickly, you blink and you miss it. The smell is as one previous reviewer said like gasoline, and not the good gas; but the cheap low grade gas that is offered at the mom and pop gas stations. The taste is extremely astringent. Avoid this.

    Unreal I found this, but my ticking ass scooped it up! Smells like expired corn and gasoline. The flavor is not that offensive, well its not good. Lots of cereal grains, corn, and booze going on. This might even be a tad better than Icehouse and certainly beats Natty Ice. But what compare turds? 3 points of interest.....1)Still sucks 2)will get you wasted 3)Less rubbing alcohol burn than Natty Ice or Beast Ice for the same coin. Take that for what its worth. Overall still sucks!

    This is simply wretched to me, like most Busch beers. I never have liked Busch, I don't know what it is about it. I hardly ever get sick off of beers, but this one made me vomit after only 5 or 6, and I wasn't even hammered. The taste is awful, you have to force it down, there are other ice beers way better, and if your looking to get hammered it will work but for pete sake try to find something better.

    This beer has a higher alcohol percentage for a pale lager, yet it just doesnt feel right. Is kinda syrupy, in a very gross way. Doesnt taste bad, you just really have to force it down. my least favorite beer.

    I can honestly think of 5 or 6 better ice beers. Or even regular Busch. This beer just didn't go down like the others. It doesn't really taste bad but just not as drinkable. Still, as always, you aren't paying for the taste. Maybe mine was just skunked who knows?

    Maybe not the worst ice beer I have ever sampled, but close to it. It was very, very watery with very little flavor to it. The aroma was also nondescript. It poured a golden color but no head or even lacing.
