COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When youíre looking for a rich, full-flavored beer, Genesee Ice is the perfect beer for you. Our brewmasters begin with only the purest natural ingredients. Then, ice crystals form in the beer during its aging process before itís filtered for the rich flavor Genesee Ice is known for.

good medium head...regular cheap beer smell, but taste is of bananas.....much better than I thought it would be...smooth...only a very slightly bitter/bad/cheap aftertaste...good medium dense mouth feel...surprizing!

Tallboy (Genesee Ice @ 5.5%). Corn/barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Mildly sweet corn/barley malt and hay flavor. Not horrible - would have torn these up in my younger years and at the bargain price of $1.21.

Scrapersnbeer (1500) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Pounder cans labeled Genesee Ice and list 5.5% abv. Probably the same, likely it is all just scraps lying around the brewery. Old cider and wet leather aroma, sugary alcohol as well. Fizzy medium yellow, dark enough to look okay. Bland sweet taste. Very smooth beer, you can drink it down and it doesnít bit the same way a malt liquor does. Better than Genny Light...that is all.

Purchased a six pack of this from a Stewarts in Plattsburgh, NY for $2.99. Tastes like Natty Ice. Highlight of this beer is its amazing can that contains asexual bathroom sign characters showing what you can do with this beer: slam dunk, play volleyball, fly fish, etc.

kramer (5243) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Can. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one inch fizzy white head that retained pretty well due to the heavy carbonation. The nose is pretty minimal, just a bit of corn and not a whole lot else, maybe a touch of cooked vegetables. The flavor is pretty sad though, bland and lacking in anything positive, itís mostly water with a slight bit of corn. Light bodied and fizzy with a thankfully short finish. This one could be worse.

dwyerpg (4734) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Not much aroma. The head is very untasty. The beer pretty much tastes like a super cheap light beer but at least thereís no heavy funk in the aroma.

Aegis212 (4) - - FEB 14, 2013 does not count
Very drinkable for an Iced Beer. The smell precedes the actual taste of the beer and leads to a bit of disappoint. Although - it is very drinkable, but really doesnít distinguish itself from other Iced beers.

I will agree with a previous review, yest this isnt as good as Cream Ale, but it is still decent. Good for a cheap beer.

finn1918 (211) - Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Pours a dark clear golden with about 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Aroma is cornmeal. Taste is very much the same with some dry malts and no trace of hops. For the price, this is an okay beer, if not as good as the cream ale. Pretty generic ice beer.

24 oz. can on sale for $0.89 at Harris Teeter. Figured this one might be good for a laugh. Yes, this is horrendous. If you were expecting something even halfway quaffable, youíre in the wrong place. This tastes just like every other horrible malt liquor/high gravity lager youíll ever have. Iím actually surprised to see this rated so highly here. In my mind, this almost has to be one of the 20 or so worst widely available beers on the planet (not including malt liquors, though this might just about qualify as one).
