    Had to come to the States to try this Canadian Ice brew, supervised by Molson, but brewed by Coors here. Pours a clean golden colour with a frothy white head, good retention and thick creamy and foam lace. Smells like fresh malt at first, then just gets mild. The taste is malty and a little sweet, but not overly. Goes down quite smoothly. I guess it is well-supervised, as it has this Canadian feel to it (and not A-B style). Did not find much corn in this. Just not as "iced" as most tried (with the no-aftertaste). Nice and malty.

    Pours a clear golden color with almost no head at all and is froth with decent lacing. The aroma is really skunky and sweet with grass and corn. The taste was of caramel and toasted malts and was pretty sweet and a little bready with a mild bitterness at the end. The mouthfeel was pretty light in body and then feels creamy when the carbonation kicks in. Pretty high carbonation.

    This is one of my favorite beers. Just short of freezing, it packs a nice clean and refreshing punch. It's not to strong. It leaves a wonderful tingle feeling on your tongue. When you compare this to something like Labatts, you see what a great Canadian beer is. I am sadly unable to find this any longer.

    This is wretched stuff that will turn your stomach if you drink enough of it. It was originally marketed in the US as Black Ice, before the 'real' Black Ice came.

    It pours a light golden with thin white head and copious lacing. An aroma of sweet malts, breads and yeasts, light hops, lemon, and mild spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich. Flavors of sweet and rich malts, light hops, bread & yeast, lemon-citrus, some spice, and maybe even banana. I really like this beer for some reason. It is very smooth and flavorful. Possibly a candidate for a top staple beer.

    A bright yellow colored beer. Big foamy textured white head rises above. Some hang time here. Settles into a thin unimpressive soapy ringlet. The nose is corn and grassy hops, just like the America macrobrews. Light bodied. Some smoothness. Ugh. The tasting is the offensiveness of a macrobrew. I’ll finish it, nut it is skunky corn and phenols. I came, I sampled....I will not do it again.

    Another beer that if one wants, they need to search for it. Colour - pale gold, clear, white head. Aroma - skunky malt. Mouthfeel - smooth, weak bodied. Flavour - water, malt, hops. Overall - just OK

    This is the typical skunky lager, but I find it a bit smoother than most of the american lagers, probably because it's a pale lager. Also maybe the water slightly better/cleaner. To me, it's more like the Molson Exta Pale versus Molson Golden...but with a slightly higher ABV%. It's not a bad bar beer if they only serve domestic and such.

    At a 6 percentile overall, I was thinking this may be pretty good cheap lager, 70 cents per 12 oz red and black can. 2 cans poured into a big 28 oz clear beaker. Rocky white head. Pale lager yellow with sparkling carbonation visible within. Smell is that typical molson aroma, perhaps a tad stronger. Taste is stronger molly which almost aproaches the rudeness of other cheap ice beers. Aroma gets almost volatile at times. Clean and sterile on the palate. Good carbonation, needs more. Does come across as slightly refreshing, in a sharp kinda way. Finish is better than many other cheap ice beers and is relatively short. Back of throat processedness builds thru the session.

    Presentation: It was poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. Appearance: It has a light golden color with very good clarity and lots of carbonation. The head builds up tall and foamy and it is just off white in color. It fades nearly as fast as it forms leaving behind little to lace. Smell: The aroma is simple and clean with a mild cereal grain character. Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor is similar to Molson Canadian but a little stronger. The favor is somewhat sweet with a cereal grain malty body offset by a light grassy hop presence. It finish quickly and cleanly with some of the light hops bitterness. Notes: Overall I would say that this is one of the cleaner crisper Ice beers that I have had.
