First time trying this. Grabbed a 6 pack hoping for the best but expecting the worst. It was surprisingly good for 3 and change for a 6 pack. Pretty smooth. Not bad compared to other “ice” beers I’ve tried. Drank them straight out of the can. Taste was kind of a cross between genesee cream ale and regular genesee. Im mostly into craft brews and most of the reviews for this are not great because it’s compared to higher quality craft brews. I’m into good craft brews myself but that does not mean a cheap decent run of the mill beer cannot be appreciated. So if your looking to crack open a refreshing beer with a decent taste at an extremely reasonable price this is a good pick.

Smells like piss. A'int got too much of a head on it but looked like a pretty good beer. Darker than what I'm normally used to. A'int too bad, I kind of like it. It's a little more heavy than the Bud Light I usually drink. For $3 a six pack this is pretty good. If I ever get short on my finances I might start drinking this. Not terrible.

This beer fesses up to what it is, junk. If you look on the can, there's a stick figure puking...which is precisely what you will be doing after consuming this stuff. but at 2.99 for a 6 pack, I would expect nothing else. It was cold, it was wet and it tasted acidic (almost metallic). Had an odd haze to it which was slightly concerning...

Mountain Brew makes it cool to be a bad beer. Oh yeah! With it's hilarious branding of stick figures doing sports; you wonder if you can actually play volleyball or swim after one can of this potent goodness. If you're looking to score big on the buzz after a few cans which will probably cost you a measly $2.50, you can't go wrong. Don't let the moment escape you to have a cold mountain brew in your hand around all of your friends. They'll think you're really cool.

Mountain Brew- A very cool brew! A popular favorite among very broke college students. The only thing cheaper is Walgreen's Big Flats beer. Both are contract brewed by Genesee in Rochester, NY

Reluctant to pour this in anything and taste it, but here goes.
Poured from a 12 oz can into pint glass. One finger fizzy head that recedes as I type. Lots of carbonation.

A- Very Pale, not meant to be admired visually I would guess.

S- Metal and Alcohol. Not intrigued.

T- Very sweet, as it is an ice beer with 5.9% ABV. Metallic aftertaste. Not complex at all, one beer flavored note, no hint of hops or anything that actually went into making this.

M- sticky and fizzy. Is kind of burning my stomach from all of the fizz.

O- Might buy for friends I don't like very much. Not really familiar with ice beers, but this is not so good. If I'm on the cheap to the point I'd drink this I'd either buy a soda or save a few more bucks and get some tall PBR cans. Lesson learned, but will try the new light version once I can post a page for it.

Cans purchased at Stewarts Shops in Delmar, NY. Genesee makes this classic only for Stewarts!

Pours out super light, looks almost like water. Like a mountain stream or something! Pretty fizzy.

Smells like nothing. Some corn like extract aromas are weak, thankfully.

Also tastes basically like nothing. It isn't particularly offensive, until it warms up. There is a very slight marginal bitter bite at the end of each sip.

Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel. High carbonation.

This brings back a lot of funny memories, doesn't mean it's any good though.
