3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Simply a good old American beer. There’s nothing not to like about Genesee. Very refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. Great taste; in my opinion even better than Old Milwaukee or PBR, and that’s saying something. Great taste is matched by a great price, too. I can get a 40 ounce bottle for under two dollars out the door, which suits my meager budget just fine. Anyone talking smack about this are either yanking your chain or haven’t even tried it.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Poured from 16 ounce can at MOTR Pub at Scrawl concert on September 15, 2012. Light gold color, small white head that quickly vanished with little lacing, unpleasant smell of cheap perfume and wet cardboard, taste like the aroma but without the wet cardboard and with some astringency. If you’re low on cash, Genny Light and Genesee Cream Ale are much better options.

From what I remember of this, this stuff is rough. I have to give props to anyone who can drink this regularly.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bought this on recommendation from liquor store manager who apparently overbought and was trying to unload it on the cheap. Non-existent to unpleasant nose and appearance. Some carbonation and taste of mashed corn. Have not been back to that particular liquor store.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One and half fingers of head, clear yellow tinged colored body.
Smell of candy corn.
Not too bad of a taste. The mildest bitterness, corn and mild honey.
Smooth texture, low carbonation for the style and light body.
For the style it’s not a bad beer. I’d entertain drinking this if I had something productive to do on a summer afternoon. Descent flavor and low ABV.

Bottle pours golden with small head. Smells tastes metallic sweet corn. Some faint malts. Not that good I’d rather have some thing else but cheap. It’s run of the mill cheap beer. Genny light is better surprisingly.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft. Pale gold with white head. Unpleasant metallic corn aroma, taste, and aftertaste. This is consistent from start to finish. Unfortunately, consistently bad.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
24 oz can to pint. Looks fine; a transparent gold with white head. Smells and tastes cheap, doughy, and unpleasantly skunky. Below average on The palate. As poor as I expected.

This stuff seems like its going to be run of the mill until you get it in your mouth. Then the smorgasbord of off flavors hit! This stuff is rough going down too, like it has some heavy metal in it or something. Its almost as bad as Iron City.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. Sweet nose of grain and honey. The flavor is a bit cleaner than the cream ale, but nothing exciting here: basic sweet malts, a bit of bite.
