Genesee Ice Beer brewed by Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. This brew has an ABV of 5.5. The brew pours out a dark amber color with a small white head. Genesee Ice is darker than most Ice brews on the market. The smell is strong with grains and corn. Genesee Ice is a lot smoother than the original Genesee Beer. There is just something more to it to make it smoother. This brew goes real smooth with no harsh aftertaste. For an ice Beer this real good no hard alcohol taste or after taste for that matter. You can taste the grains and corn but nothing bad. Mouthfeel is nice clean . Overall I'm giving Genesee Ice a 4.75 out of 5 This is one Ice Beer that I can enjoy. For the price this is a good go to brew. Genesee Ice is a brew that I would buy again.

I really like Genesee Brewing Co. but this beer really doesn't cut it for me. I was hoping to find another great beer from Genesee but I wont be buying this again because of the taste. It's a mild flavor but what is there isn't very appealing. It's not horrible but it's not good.

Clean gold with three fingers of white head. Retention is average for the style and good amount of clumpy lace.
Smell is lightly corny with a good amount of grains and a minor amount of grassy hops.
Taste is similar with no bad flavors just not much going on either. Bolder flavors than most macro lagers. Lightly sweet.
Mouthfeel is medium and lightly wet finish. Carbonation is just enough,
Overall one of the best from this brewery prefer it to their regular beer.

When you pay .99 for a 24 ounce can you really can't expect too much. This stuff isn't even worthy of a full A-S-T-M-O review but here we go...
A - Pours out a big head that is gone instantly. It looks "dead" in the glass but I doubt much of this is drank from a glass.
S/T - The smell and taste are adjunct city - heavy corn/grainy flavor and smell with even a hint of wine-like flavors.
M- Very thin mouth feel.
O - Overall this is not a particularly good entry in the "Ice" category and there are far better choices in this 5.5 - 5.9 class. I am a big fan of the Genesee Brewing Company, but this stuff just doesn't make the cut with me.

24oz can poured into a snifter. Canned on June 20th.
A: Pours a light amber gold with a decent white head that is somewhat quick to dissipate. Leaves some lacing on the sides.
S: Sort of a harsh macro lager aroma. Corn sweetness dominates.
T: More malt forward than the regular Genny. As anticipated from the aroma this is a fairly sweet beer for having such little flavor.
M: Light to medium body. A bit sticky but not too bad. Fairly easy drinking as long as its cold.
Overall it fits in with your typical Ice beer. A more malty and boozy version of their base. Think I might rather drink a normal Genny.
