COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When you’re looking for a rich, full-flavored beer, Genesee Ice is the perfect beer for you. Our brewmasters begin with only the purest natural ingredients. Then, ice crystals form in the beer during its aging process before it’s filtered for the rich flavor Genesee Ice is known for.

Painful...no aroma to speak and even less flavor. Served it’s purpose for a broke gentleman on a hot day. Can’t imagine i would have another one of these so called brews.

24 oz. can. Pours clear yellow gold with a white head. Grainy corny straw like aroma. Dirty corny flavor. Kind of gross. Still drinkable I guess. And by drinkable, I mean I’m cheap as shit so I sucked it up and drank my 99 cent 24 oz. beer.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2011
Can from Stewart’s, labeled "Mountain Brew Beer Ice." Pours clear dark gold with a small white head. Aromas of corn, urine, and stale malt. The flavor is similar, with stale malt, corn, and sour alcohol. Not as bad as expected, but not good. [644]

16 oz. tallboy can from Tmoney99. Pours a clear light golden color with a large white head. The aroma is sweet corn and grains with a slight metallic note. The flavor is less sweet than the nose would indicate, with more of a grainy bread character instead. This is not great by any means, but it’s not offensive either. I would have to say slightly (very slightly) better than expected.

Tmoney99 (11694) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Can Genesee Ice 16 oz. 5.5% ABV. Poured clear pale color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Light to moderate sweet grainy aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Worth having once.

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2011
24oz can for $0.99. It’s a crappy "ice" beer that hardly has the ABV to qualify. Tastes like carbonated barley water. Why did I buy this?

Slipstream (2193) - USA - FEB 19, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2011 24 ounce can, the apropos vessel for this libation, labeled Genesee Ice. Silver and black can appears to be a knockoff of Molson Ice, or perhaps some other macro’s ice - silver & black cans appear to be the standard for this kind of brew. The aroma is not the worst, but the sweet, corny flavor is pretty lame. I can barely taste any hops, but I can taste something weird in there, something that doesn’t fit, like relish or mustard, or a cheap hot dog on a corn syrup-laced bun. The alcohol level is pretty low too, for an "ice" beer. Not only is this stuff not very good, it’s not even good for this crumby style.

DrnkMcDermott (2880) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2011
24 oz. can labeled "Genesee Ice" with 5.5% abv. So many variations on the same beer! This pours foamy, more skunk than the Genesee Beer from Wednesday. Still, a clean yellow body under puffy foam. But the same cheap lager corn smell of any beer I’ve had with "Ice" in its name. Taste has corn edges, some malt, but sweetness over character. Exactly what I’d expect for a 99¢ Ice tallboy.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Nose is muted, unoffensive, mildly corny and thats about it. The can wasnt as cool as the one pictured with a polar bear on it - I would have rated it far higher if that was the case. The flavor is light, somewhat sweet and adjuncty, not unpleasant but not that good also. It is kind of just whatever. I’d drink it again if I had to.

Tallboy at Christmas gathering. Pretty decent pale lager and at a great price point, for sure. Pale yellow with fizzy head. Nose is a bit corny though not overly DMS. Some booze and some malt. no hops. On taste, pretty inoffensive, perhaps even pleasant. Pretty standard beer, though.
