The best part about this is the awesome new can for "Mountain Brew Beer Ice," with itís slogan "A very cool brew!" followed by an odd series of tiny boxes of little stickmen playing various sports. I couldnít figure out one of the sports, but I think itís double dutch. The stuff inside was fairly standard macro, with plenty of corn.

24 oz can from Grocery Outlet( were else!!)..Salem
says 5.5% alc.
Im not even going to attempt to pour this i will drink it as nature intended!
Colour..the cans nice!
Aroma..sour corny, cardboard..you get the picture.
Taste is nt that bad really..better then the aroma..but basically a corn based cheaplager..no hops .
Palte again not bad for the style..pleasantly carbonated at least.
Overall a cheap beer that you can gulp down if ice cold.
99cents a 24 oz can

New to Tennessee Market for a few weeks now. 24 oz silver can, 5.5% abv. Genessee Ice. Clear, pale yellow body with a fading ring of white head. Aroma of cheap grain and grassy hops. Flavor is cheap grain and grassy. Finish is cereal, sweet malt, thin, watery. A point overall for volume, price, and somewhat drinkable if youíre going for a Natty Ice/Beast Ice replacement and are in college or, no offense to anyone, homeless.

22 oz Can- Pours a clear golden color with a big frothy head that fades quickly to some lacing. Grainy aroma with some sweetness. Mild crispness with a bit of sweetness. Has a grainy flavor thoughout. Light body, quite smooth.Goes down easy. best when ice cold. Canít beat the price if your on a tight budget.

Mountain Brew Ice...
Pours a muddled brown copper with some frothy, foamy head that quickly dissipates. Smells like skunky taint and cardboard soaked in malt liquor. flavor follows suit. pretty tough to drink, and gives a serious rotgut feeling. Yum

Absolutely putrid. I had the Mountain Brew Beer Ice (redirected me to this page). Taste is unbearable in all ways. At 5.5%, itíll get you to your goal quicker. Choke it down if you can (and donít have ANY other options).

On the low end of the beer quality scale. Not too much flavor. Much like a PBR, but perhaps a bit smoother and about a dollar cheaper. Thatís what drew me to this. Cheap beer. I didnít know it was "ice" until drinking it. I thought this died out in the í90s.

Silver can purchased at Stewartís in Long Lake, NY. Can reads "Mountain Brew Beer Ice" . Enjoyed during a long kayak ride with Eli. Pretty terrible stuff, not really refreshing.

Man, I wish my can was as awesome as the one shown. I got this crap in simple looking black can that looks very much like a black version of the can for regular Genesee. I want one w/ a polar bear. The color here is actually a tolerable nice orange and the head lasts as a decent sized ring of foam. The nose is not so nice. Itís sort of tart and fruity in that malt liquor kind of way. Once tasted, the bitterness comes off as metallic, the carbonation fizzy and the mouthfeel thick and unpleasant. As far as American ice lagers go, itís OK, but that isnít really saying much at all.
