1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 473mL can from the LCBO. It was new and I am a starved ratings whore so I felt compelled to try it. Basically your typical macro pale lager with slightly more to it due to a slightly higher ABV though nothing really worthy of note. Sweet corn but not as nauseating as other macro swill. I will not be buying this ever again so congratulations LCBO on regular listing yet another completely pointless and uninteresting beer product.

Premium Genesee Ice Beer
Aroma of herbs, dough, and corn. Pale and sparkling apperance. Similar flavor to the aroma. Light body and lively carbonation. Great on a summer day. 5.9% alcohol, $13 for a 30 rack - Great buy!

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Pale gold. Ice cold so little to no aroma. No flavour except alcohol. To be avoided.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can, darker than a normal pale and has some taste of alcohol and macro additives but if on a budget aiming to get sloshed Genny Ice is top notch.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Dark gold beverage. Alcohol-forward aroma complemented by boiled white rice and confectionary sugar - not very appealing. Nearly flavourless, with a tiny bit of malt towards the end. About as basic and bland as you can get.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
[117-20061126] 355mL (Genesee Premium Ice Beer from LCBO). Lightly rotting grapes and old chocolate aroma. Clear, dark yellow body with almost no bubbles and a medium-lasting foamy white head. Flavour is still of rotting grapes with that typical beery alcohol. Medium body, some astringency, a bubbly back-of-tongue light grainy dryness. Interesting flavour but not in a good way.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pale clear yellow colour with a short fizzy head. Weak aroma of grains and a bit of metal. Smooth weak taste, grainy with some mild hoppiness. Quite waterish mouthfeel. A beer which is quite easy to drink when served cold. Dull and simpel.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can: Poured a bright golden color lager with a medium bubbly head with limited retention. Aroma of corn and sugar is pretty intense and somewhat gross. Taste has a sweet edge with some bad adjunct that just takes too much space. This one is real bad pale lager with way too much adjunct showing.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Intended simply to get you drunk. Aroma is metallic. Flavor of corn, metal, and alcohol. Not something I want to drink again.
