This shit is good. Put some lime juice in it. I like it in a frosty mug. I can drink like 10 of them and still go to work the next day feeling great when my friends are hung over.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 9-29-12- Poured from can into pint glass Appearance – Pours a nice golden color with a big white head. The head has decent retention lasting for about 5 min. It eventually fades to leave a decent level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a corn and caramel smell. Overall it is on the sweeter side. Taste – The taste begins with some corn sweetness and a bready taste. As it moves on the sweetness fades a bit toward the middle. While the sweet fades, it is only temporary and in the end the corn sweetness returns to leave a sweet bready and corn flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. Good for the style, as it makes it very easy to drink as it flows through the mouth. Overall – While it is mostly of sweeter corn and some notes of bread and not super flavorful, it is by no way offensive and is very easy to drink. For 24 oz at only $1.29 it’s not too shabby and makes for a good tailgating brew.

Premium Genesee Ice Beer Aroma of herbs, dough, and corn. Pale and sparkling apperance. Similar flavor to the aroma. Light body and lively carbonation. Great on a summer day. 5.9% alcohol, $13 for a 30 rack - Great buy!

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Presentation: It was poured from a 24oz can into a pint glass. Its abv is listed at 5.5%. Appearance: The body has a clear golden hue with a tall white head. The head fades quickly to thin wispy layer that leaves a little light lacing at the top of the glass. Smell: There is really not much here at all to note. It has just a very light and simple cereal grain nose. Taste/palate: For an Ice Beer this one has a very modest overall flavor. I get some corn cereal and pale grain flavor notes with some light mineral and alcohol notes in the finish. The palate is lighter than most ice beers and overall it slides down quite easy. Notes: Overall it’s fairly clean, light and dry.

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.

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 doesn’t distinguish itself from other Iced beers.

Harsh but has a good kick, cheap 30 pack kind of brew.
