Had one of these a january 2004 and really wasn’t all that impressed. Color and appearance wasn’t all that bad, fizzy and yellow like most beers that aren’t that great. Smells like malts and apples. Taste is also malts and apples, somewhat bitter, and a little acidic tasting. Not a good beer by any means.

One of the best from Genny. They pulled it out of retirement once maybe it will happen again. Solid hoppy taste and aroma.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 This and Cream Ale are the best Genesee ever made. Its not really retired, they come with a batch or two in the summer. Great effort for a macro-brewed American ale.

to great a beer to be retired. It was even worth a roadtrip or two. Smooth with a very nice color. A fine ale for a US macro

Amber color to it. Cloudy and murky. Heavy yeast aroma. Flat beer with little cabination and litle head. Bought the beer because some call me horse at work.

Alright everyone is allowed a guilty pleasure or two. I remember how much I liked this in high school.......(er college I mean) after thinking Miller was what beer was supposed to taste like. Granted using another macro as a barometer is a flawed start, I remember this actually had taste. 20 years later? Wouldn’t touch it or any non-craft brew.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Poured a pale amber color with a small white head and heavy lacing. Tasted like the last malt liqour I had but I cant remember what that even was. This beer really isnt that bad at all and its not a drain pour, but what do I know!

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] A friend of mine had a six pack of this stuff laying around and when I told him High Falls stopped making it, he decided that we should drink it. Poured a pale amber color with a thick white head. Faint aroma of hops with a hint of malt. Slightly sweet, lots of malt and a touch of hops. Watery yet crisp and refreshing. Not too shabby. I wonder why they stopped making this stuff. It definitely was better than the time we got a pony keg of it only to find it completely flat.

Pours with a white two-fingered head that fades slowly and leaves a lot lace. Light, clear amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Lightly hopped mixed with some malt, seems watery, some sweetness a boring lawnmower ale. $1.25 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

Not as bad as people make it out to be. There is far worse coming out of the big breweries. High Falls is a home town brewery for me.
