I purchased a forty ounce bottle from my local Krogerís, and can clearly state that there isnít much to this beer. Bland tasting, very light malty aroma, I really canít even recommend this brew to some of the íhood winoís (itís only 5.6 ABV). Oh well, at least itís something to fill out the refrigerator!

Genesee Ice is a clear light golden beer with a thin white head that has good lacing. The aroma is of funk, lemon and corn. Itís light bodied and quite smooth with a clean finish. Itís lightly flavored and not too funky. The flavor is mostly lemon and corn. Itís not too bad for an ice beer, but for $4.50 a twelve-pack-- you can get Genny Bock for the same price right now. Come on.

From the 12 fl. oz. can no. 0779 R 14:42. The pour is sort of between pale yellow and pale gold with good clarity and lively carbonation. There is a constant puffy, white head. The aroma is a bit grassy and grainy and maybe a tad bready. A little watered down but not horrendous. The alcohol is not as evident in the taste as other ice beers I have tried and this one has a touch of the hops, corn, and a reasonable finish.

elihapa (1529) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Oh goodness, how I didnít want to try this. Pours pale gold with a fizzy, dissipating head. Aroma of nothing and corn. Flavor is surprisingly mellow-sugary, with a palate that is fuller than I expected. Overall, not a bad offering considering price, alcohol, and relatively inoffensive finish. That said, letís not forget this is trashy beer. I MAY, if situation demanded, consider purchasing this beer again.

It taste twice as nice when you puke up Genny Ice. Just like its cousins it is just a macro tasting beer that is there for the sole purpose of getting trashed. Why on earth anybody making over minimum wage would by this stuff other than that is one of lifes great misteries.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 New rate 7/2011: a little better and this time it wa in a big silver and black 24 oz can. This much better than most of the stuff from city yet its cheaper at times. Old rate:Mine was labeled as Genesee Ice. Red and white label, but not the label we see here. A big 28 oz clear tumbler of jenny ice. Looks like any other pale American lager. Cost was $1.50 for a glass bottle twist off 40. The kings measure, not liters mind you. Ooh baby, not too common around these parts. Found this at the gas station on my way to Vintage. This is not the kind of beer youíll find at vintage. Bob was more interested in selling me EKU. There is a quarter inch creamy head on this that wonít go away. Taste is reminiscent of many ice beer but is not too offensive. Typical cheap pale lager flavor which is not too offensive. Much better than most of the beers from Milwaukeeís Melanie. Finish is a bit corny and does not have much more than a little processed feel. Overall, the session was better probably because of the 5.2% alky content. S3L2F2T5O8

500ml can 5.5% called Genesee Ice beer. Poured pale straw colured with small white head. Moderate grainy aroma. initial sip was metallic. Light cereal flavour. Rather light for an ice beer. Clean finish.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
Can from a six pack at my LCBO location, store 200, London Ontario- Tagged as Genesee Premium Ice, not Genny Ice. Pale gold pour, with a medium sized white froth, leaving little lace. Nose of vegetables, mostly corn, sugars, some paper, a bit of grain. Tastes of sweet grains, sweet corn, a bit of hops towards the finish, but it isnít something Iíd recommend for a good example of the style. Finishes low on the scale in terms of flavour or body. Bah.

GregClow (2912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Can from the LCBO (under the name Genesee Premium Ice Beer). Bright golden colour with a good sized white head that stick around for a while. Aroma is sweet, with notes of icing sugar and corn. Thin bodied. Flavour isnít nearly as bad as it could be - no off-flavours, really, just a clean and slightly too-sweet macro lager. Hell, thereís even a slight hint of hops in the finish! Not something Iíll be buying again, but it could be much, much worse.
