Clear light gold w/ fizz white head. Putrid cooked corn aroma. Light, watery feel. Bland, sweet cereal & corn flavour w/ some metallic notes & rubbing alcohol in the finish.

Can. Pee yellow body with a big white head. Funky macro aroma with a bit of malt in there. Flavour is fairly inoffensive but nothing to brag about. Long lingering chemical, slightly metallic aftertaste. Light palate, kind of flat. LCBO singles bin.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
salty, malt aroma that isn’t impressive but isn’t offensive. Pours a very nice golden brown, nice head with quality lacing. Cornish flavouring. Malt liquor-ish. Alcohol is suprisingly well hidden, although I’m drinking it rather cold. This isn’t winning any awards but I’ve had a hell of a lot worse.

Passable for the price. Has a bit more punch to it than regular whiz like red dog, etc... Can’t really say it stood out much from the regular whiz beers. (Which at 12:99 per 30 can case at the local super-duper liquor store aint too bad) All in all, it was better than I expected. It’s beer (Drink it REAL cold though,eh?) AND. The can looks totally different than the one this site currently has on display. There’s no bear on it and the can just says Genesee Ice Beer. I checked, it is a highfalls brewing product

Had this my fair share of times the past four years in college. Picture the Chappelle show’s Samuel Jackson Beer comercial, "It’ll getcha drunk!". Well that’s about all this beer will do besides taste like cereal, piss and alcohol. And skunk. And metal. Here’s to being drunk and not tasting this beer.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Deep golden. Fluffy white head. Chemical, adjunct, peppery nose. Not anything I even want to write about for this one. Plain old gross. 5.9%, and it really sucks.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
I saw a homeless man sleeping in a cardboard box, clutching a can of this. - I knew I was in for a real treat. Pours gold with a foamy head. Beautiful mild skunk. Loads of corn syrup maltiness. It's got a delicious one dimensional quality finished with club soda-esque salts. Magnificent. An excellent example of the style.

This fits into the “ice beer” mold, nothing to get excited about just a plain lager with a slightly pumped up alcohol in comparison to its counterpart. If it has a cheaper price tag than it probably is worth it but the you get what you pay for also.

Poured decently with that usual macro head, that however didnt disappear quickly at all. Tasted horrible. Ice beer is a terrible idea, very caustic and harsh tasting. Bad beer.
