COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

24oz can. Clear golden color, thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Soft, moderate strength carbonation, with a sharper texture. Lightly dry finish. Corn, bready aroma, some metallic. Light acidicy bite, but it’s mild. Taste is light sour, moderate bitter. Kind of biting, with a terrible aftertaste. Kind of vomity in the finish, but the front is not bad. The finish numbs the mouth. Overall, not as bad as expected. Reasonably drinkable. Great for chillin’ on the porch.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Presentation: It was poured from a 24oz can into a pint glass. Its abv is listed at 5.5%. Appearance: The body has a clear golden hue with a tall white head. The head fades quickly to thin wispy layer that leaves a little light lacing at the top of the glass. Smell: There is really not much here at all to note. It has just a very light and simple cereal grain nose. Taste/palate: For an Ice Beer this one has a very modest overall flavor. I get some corn cereal and pale grain flavor notes with some light mineral and alcohol notes in the finish. The palate is lighter than most ice beers and overall it slides down quite easy. Notes: Overall it’s fairly clean, light and dry.

ContemplateBeer (1558) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Consumed at room temperature, because that’s how I roll. Aroma: Semi-sweet cereal and... toast (lightly so)? Some fruity esters, maybe pear. Appearance: Transparent copper pour (pale lager, eh?) with quickly dissipating white head. Flavor: Mostly sweet cereal, but not candy sweet; Genny Ice terminates a little on the fruity side. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, lively carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Not too shabby; good cookout beer on the cheap. 1.35 for a 24 oz. can.

24oz can thanks to t0rin0. Pours a clear golden with spotty lacing. Medium foam. Nose is green apple, soap. Not so bad though. Taste is soap, apple, watery. Seltzer body, acetaldehyde in droves.

12 ounce can thanks to Dennis. Pours a bright copper color with a medium white head. A sweet grainy nose. Not very good. Earthy, slick and dirty palate, grains, smoother sweet barley. Hmmm. Not terrible. Iced to 5.5? I want the 55% version......maybe. OK, I’ll rate it.

Big fucken can @ home, courtesy of BlackIPA. Bro always send me wales, Jesus. Pours a clear, golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Lemon, corn candy, pure natural ingredient aroma. Pretty sweet, candy, lightly fruity, spritzy flavor. Not horrible. More flavor than Bud Light and about equally enjoyable.
