Bricks (661) - Delaware, USA - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 99c for a 24oz. Yellow rich swilly appearance. Aroma is like peanut shells, fingernail polish remover and urine. Rough bitter palate. Tastes like the machinery it was processed within, or the nether regions of a robotic skunk. Part of me thinks that this is the first batch of beer they make after cleaning everything.. thus resulting in mega unintended adjunct. Not recommended in the slightest.

drowland (6479) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2012
5/3/12. "Ice" beer thatís only 5.5%? Well, here we go. 24oz can... why did I buy this? Plain creamy corn aroma with touches of grain. Unoffensive but plain flavor with some corn, sweet apples, and more cream. Goes down pretty decent for an ice beer, but then again, itís pretty low ABV, so itís more of a pale lager, like the style says above. Meh.

Drake (9433) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2012
Can shared by maniac at Slutfest 3, Richmond, VA, 4/21/12. Pours a clear golden color with a thin frothy tan head. Aroma of grain, corn, grass and fusel alcohols. The taste is grass, grain and corn. Astringent. Medium bodied.

Butters (3895) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2012
Sampled at Slutfest 3. Thanks Maniac. NOT! Clear light yellow. Flat overly sweet grainy buttery flavor. Nothing special here. And not enough alcohol to be justified as an "ice" beer in my opinion.

Metalchopz (2483) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated May 2005. Mild sweet malt aroma with slight alcohol. Quite smooth for a 5.9% ABV ice swill macro. Nothing offensive here. Pale golden amber colour with lively carbonation. Not bad head, with some lace. Long sweet aftertaste with mild sourness. No sign of corn in this one. Last ice beer I had must of been like 10-15 years ago... and had a bad recollection of it. This one is not bad at all.

PorterPounder (5825) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 24 oz can. Medium gold pour, fluffy white head. Atrocious aroma - mixture of hair tonic and wet canine - awful. Flavor is much better than the aroma, some wet paper bag notes. some grassiness, typical lager flavor. Smooth mouthfeel for the style. If you can get past the aroma - not a bad one to get your drink on.

burg326 (4111) - Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2012
12 ounce can labeled Mountain Brew Beer Ice, $1.29 for 2 cans, what a steal. However poured a light, light yellow color with feint aromas of grass, and candi corn. Taste was horrible, slammed the beer shotgun style so it wouldnít linger.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Got this beer after a day at work. $1.29 for 24oz. Pours murky gold with a fizzy head that lasts maybe 3 seconds before it fades into nothing, leaving not even a small ring of foam. Aroma of fruit and grain. Taste is not as bad as expected, apricot, plum, grain. Okay... now that Iíve been trying to choke this down for 30 minutes, it is really really really bad.

wxman (1505) - OíFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2011
16 ounce can that indicates an ABV of 5.5%. Pours a clear bright golden with a decent white head. Corn meal aroma. Taste is sweet malt, corn nuts and mild hops. Somewhat metallic.

Cakes (383) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Hey guys fix this website! Read the can - they advertize 5.5 % ABV It is a real force. In a word, NASTY. 12 oz can. One of the worst ice beers out there. Geneseesí worst offering. This does not belong. A metalic malty taste. Light gold color and a foamy head that sticks around.
