COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When you’re 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 it’s filtered for the rich flavor Genesee Ice is known for.

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 you’re 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.

Bif (1580) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2010
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. Can’t beat the price if your on a tight budget.

Mountain Brew Ice... Pours a muddled brown copper with some frothy, foamy head that quickly dissipates. Smells like skunky taint and cardboard soaked in malt liquor. flavor follows suit. pretty tough to drink, and gives a serious rotgut feeling. Yum

Absolutely putrid. I had the Mountain Brew Beer Ice (redirected me to this page). Taste is unbearable in all ways. At 5.5%, it’ll get you to your goal quicker. Choke it down if you can (and don’t have ANY other options).

On the low end of the beer quality scale. Not too much flavor. Much like a PBR, but perhaps a bit smoother and about a dollar cheaper. That’s what drew me to this. Cheap beer. I didn’t know it was "ice" until drinking it. I thought this died out in the ’90s.

Silver can purchased at Stewart’s in Long Lake, NY. Can reads "Mountain Brew Beer Ice" . Enjoyed during a long kayak ride with Eli. Pretty terrible stuff, not really refreshing.

Man, I wish my can was as awesome as the one shown. I got this crap in simple looking black can that looks very much like a black version of the can for regular Genesee. I want one w/ a polar bear. The color here is actually a tolerable nice orange and the head lasts as a decent sized ring of foam. The nose is not so nice. It’s sort of tart and fruity in that malt liquor kind of way. Once tasted, the bitterness comes off as metallic, the carbonation fizzy and the mouthfeel thick and unpleasant. As far as American ice lagers go, it’s OK, but that isn’t really saying much at all.

Golden yellow color with a very thin white head. Sweet taste with some hops in the finish. Not too bad for the price.
