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.

24oz can for $0.99. Itís a crappy "ice" beer that hardly has the ABV to qualify. Tastes like carbonated barley water. Why did I buy this?

Slipstream (2076) - USA - FEB 19, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2011 24 ounce can, the apropos vessel for this libation, labeled Genesee Ice. Silver and black can appears to be a knockoff of Molson Ice, or perhaps some other macroís ice - silver & black cans appear to be the standard for this kind of brew. The aroma is not the worst, but the sweet, corny flavor is pretty lame. I can barely taste any hops, but I can taste something weird in there, something that doesnít fit, like relish or mustard, or a cheap hot dog on a corn syrup-laced bun. The alcohol level is pretty low too, for an "ice" beer. Not only is this stuff not very good, itís not even good for this crumby style.

24 oz. can labeled "Genesee Ice" with 5.5% abv. So many variations on the same beer! This pours foamy, more skunk than the Genesee Beer from Wednesday. Still, a clean yellow body under puffy foam. But the same cheap lager corn smell of any beer Iíve had with "Ice" in its name. Taste has corn edges, some malt, but sweetness over character. Exactly what Iíd expect for a 99Ę Ice tallboy.

Nose is muted, unoffensive, mildly corny and thats about it. The can wasnt as cool as the one pictured with a polar bear on it - I would have rated it far higher if that was the case. The flavor is light, somewhat sweet and adjuncty, not unpleasant but not that good also. It is kind of just whatever. Iíd drink it again if I had to.

Tallboy at Christmas gathering. Pretty decent pale lager and at a great price point, for sure. Pale yellow with fizzy head. Nose is a bit corny though not overly DMS. Some booze and some malt. no hops. On taste, pretty inoffensive, perhaps even pleasant. Pretty standard beer, though.

The best part about this is the awesome new can for "Mountain Brew Beer Ice," with itís slogan "A very cool brew!" followed by an odd series of tiny boxes of little stickmen playing various sports. I couldnít figure out one of the sports, but I think itís double dutch. The stuff inside was fairly standard macro, with plenty of corn.

Reid (1949) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2010
24 oz can from Grocery Outlet( were else!!)..Salem says 5.5% alc. Im not even going to attempt to pour this i will drink it as nature intended! Colour..the cans nice! Aroma..sour corny, cardboard..you get the picture. Taste is nt that bad really..better then the aroma..but basically a corn based cheaplager..no hops . Palte again not bad for the style..pleasantly carbonated at least. Overall a cheap beer that you can gulp down if ice cold. 99cents a 24 oz can

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2010
New to Tennessee Market for a few weeks now. 24 oz silver can, 5.5% abv. Genessee Ice. Clear, pale yellow body with a fading ring of white head. Aroma of cheap grain and grassy hops. Flavor is cheap grain and grassy. Finish is cereal, sweet malt, thin, watery. A point overall for volume, price, and somewhat drinkable if youíre going for a Natty Ice/Beast Ice replacement and are in college or, no offense to anyone, homeless.

Can. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is pretty much all grain. flavor is grain, alcohol, and a little sugar.

22 oz Can- Pours a clear golden color with a big frothy head that fades quickly to some lacing. Grainy aroma with some sweetness. Mild crispness with a bit of sweetness. Has a grainy flavor thoughout. Light body, quite smooth.Goes down easy. best when ice cold. Canít beat the price if your on a tight budget.
