2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
24 oz can to pint. Looks decent; a transparent copper with white head. Smells skunky. Tastes like it smells with a sub-par mouthful. Bad, but could be worse.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
24 ounce can, labeled as Genesee Ice. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear dark gold color with about a half inch off-white head. There’s a small amount of lacing. Not much to the aroma, it just smells like sweet/grainy malt. Taste is the same as the aroma, it’s all sweet/grainy malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and easy enough to drink with moderate carbonation. There’s even a slight slickness to the mouthfeel. This isn’t too bad at all, there aren’t any offensive flavors or aromas. Actually, I was expecting a lot worse so this brew was a nice surprise. For $1.09 a can you could certainly do a lot worse. For the style of beer it is, I’d buy this again if I was in the mood for it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
24 oz can labeled Genesee Ice (with no polar bear) pours a clear golden amber color with a quickly vanishing white head and little lacing. Smells grainy. Aroma is not as offensive as I feared, but not memorable either (mostly grassy hops and grain husks). Body is light to medium, without too much carbonation. Taste is sweet with a clean finish. Not nearly as bad as I expected for a 99 cent 24 oz. can.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
What the fuck? This beer is called "Genesee Ice", not "Genny"... but anyway.
Poured a spritzed quickly-dispensing corn-yellow into German boot glass. Smells and tastes predominately of corn husks, alcohol, noble hops and tin. Not perfect but for a little over .99, this does the trick and then some.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I drank this at a tailgate out of politeness toward the host. That’s how polite I am. The taste was like rusty water, as was the color. The only thing this has going for it is a slightly larger ABV than normal piss.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and grassy hops. Taste is like the aroma. Light to medium body with modest carbonation. Just another typical macro lager swill. Not enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Genesee Ice has a medium-to-thick, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, deep golden appearance, and a lot of lacing left behind. The aroma is of faint, semi-sweet grain husks, and the flavor is of sweet malt and grain (corn, most likely), and biscuit, with a shade of hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Genesee Ice finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and very drinkable. This beer had a lot of body, and is remarkably smooth. I think it’s very good. RJT

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
24oz can, classy, listed as 5.5%. Wattery, clear yellow with foamy white head. Typical, Sour grass, tinny. Doesn’t taste so bad but it is in the sweet spot of funky, heavy cheap american lager. flavorful but wish it wasn’t. Could be worse?

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled from a 24 oz can this beer poured a golden-amber color with an enormous fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy corn with an undertone of cooked cabbage. The flavor was sweet and tangy corn and artificial sugar. Medium length tangy and corny finish. Light to medium body. Not good.
