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 (2927) - 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.

Pours yellow with a thin white head. Smells of apples and skunky. Tastes sweet and peppery with a skunky finish.

473 ml can from the LCBO. an adjuct laden 5.5% lager. this can only cost me $1.75 and it was still a waste of money. i got madder and madder at myself after each sip. pale yellow with a white quickly gone head. sweet corn aroma. flavour is sweet with some alcohol agressiveness. i actually asked my sister to grab this for me because it wasnt availible iin my city. what a waste of everyones time.

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.

BBorsutionns (45) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 30, 2008
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!

Can. Pale gold. Ice cold so little to no aroma. No flavour except alcohol. To be avoided.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2007
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.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2007
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.
