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. Genesees’ worst offering. This does not belong. A metalic malty taste. Light gold color and a foamy head that sticks around.

Not bad if you have nothing else to drink. Watery very light on taste. Something to kill your thirst and that's about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty sad. Seems like it was formulated for people who don’t want the taste of hops (or much else taste-wise) interfering with their enjoyment of a malt beverage. Tastes and smells like almost nothing but there are some faint hints of sugar, toffee, creamed corn and melon. Honeydew, maybe?

Patrickctenchi (4821) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Tall Can: Pours clear, gold, with a whipped white head. Grain, honey, corn aroma. Taste is a little cardboard.......barley malt, sweet....not bad. A slight malt liquor-vibe to it, even though it’s fairly light.......or maybe it’s just a mental projection brought on by my proximity to the big-ass can.

Canned from Sunshine Market. Light amber in color. Light nose of grain and wet paper. Lightly roasted flavors. A hint of hoppiness. The best ice beer I’ve tried thus far.

phaleslu (7545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2015
24 oz. can. Pours a clear gold color - deeper than the Labatt Ice - with a white head. Notes of corn and sweet malts, straw, sugar, with a metallic note throughout. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a mostly dry, somewhat metallic mouthfeel. Not good.

MacBoost (1518) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
$1/24oz can from Wegmans. Bargain basement price. Pours a clear gold with a white head that fades quickly. Aromas of metal and corn. Taste is sweet and kind of hot. Flavors of the genesee house yeast (metal, bad esters). Thin and cheap. Scroll past.

Bulk_Carrier (2711) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy to bubbly sort of white head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. The lacing was somewhat there as it came across in a few and far between sort of messy speckled bubbly way. The smell had some sweet grainy cereal to corn notes. The taste was mainly the same thing. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a long sweet corn aftertaste and finish. Overall, just an okay beer. Honestly, it would probably be a decent budget beer if needed.

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.

Totally gold. Boring. Rice and a touch of melon. Sweet, touch of vanilla. Meh

Headbanger (3536) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2014
Can (Old Notes)-Pours a medium golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. Another light bodied brew jumping on the ice wagon.
