Smirnoff Ice (5%): a beer mixed drink from the UK. Smirnoff originated in Russia in the 1860's but it is now part of the UK-based Diageo group, the world's largest beer, wine and spirits company. Smirnoff Ice is often referred as an "alcopop", an informal term for a sweet beer mixed drink mostly consumed by teenagers. Those so-called alcopops became quite popular on the UK club scene and later on conquered the world. Smirnoff Ice contains fermented malt and a tiny bit of Smirnoff 21 vodka (except in the US, where the alcohol part is malt/adjuncts as the sale of distilled alcohol is highly regulated). There are many variants (fruit flavors mostly) but here I'm reviewing the original, 5% ABV. ABV varies from one country to another (in Canada a 7% version is also available).
  • Pleasant lime flavor with a slight hint of iron.
  • Not too sweet for a beer mixed drink.
  • Moderate buzz.

One of the best beer mixed drink on the market. A good alternative to conventional beer.

Grade: B+
