2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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 isn’t something I’d recommend for a good example of the style. Finishes low on the scale in terms of flavour or body. Bah.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 isn’t nearly as bad as it could be - no off-flavours, really, just a clean and slightly too-sweet macro lager. Hell, there’s even a slight hint of hops in the finish! Not something I’ll be buying again, but it could be much, much worse.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
