Is smirnoff ice a beer?
Smirnoff Ice is technically a "malt beverage." Beer is also a malt beverage. The biggest difference between the two is the flavoring in a Smirnoff Ice. The alcohol content and the production method is similar, but beer is typically flavored mainly with hops (a type of flower). "Malt beverages" tend to be fruit-flavored.
