One of the better domestics. Light flavor that goes down smooth. Much better from a bottle than the can, flavor is very different.

I do not like domestic beer really and it's generally a bit dull. While Genesee is not completly exempt it is a good beer. No bitterness, no after taste and a plesent flavor. Yet is it is unexciting in style. Good for its type though

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2004 I REALLY wanted to like this beer. I didn't. Tasted like drinking liquified aluminum. Very metalic tasting and very watery. It has more flavor that some cheap beers but the flavor is mostly of metal.

For the money, not bad!
Not a really rich tasting beer, but doesn't have that cheap,watery, budget piss beer taste, body, etc... at 9.99 a 30 pack this beats Stroh's by miles. A decent "everyday" kind of beer. (The Red Lager however is much better and a real bargain at the same price!)

Pale yellow color with a thin white head and fairly good lace. Slightly sour malt aroma with a touch of sweetness. Watery well balanced flavor with a touch of bitterness and a slightly hoppy finish. Light bodied and smooth.

Cool can. Light flavor with a hint of corn and a faint floral note. Not much but not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2003 This beer is the cheapest beer around and it is ten times better then bud, miller, and coors. this is not a great beer but when you can get a 30 pk. 9.99 with a rebate its a good every day cheap beer. After having alot of good beers this just sucks i had to lower my rating

This is one of those "cult beers," especially in the New York area, with people "growing up on the stuff." Frankly, I don’t understand the obsession. Mouthfeel was soft, yet chalky at the same time. Moderate carbonation tries to make it crisp, but doesn’t completely succeed. Light bitterness in the finish is about all it can offer. No major off-flavors to disturb, but no real "on-flavors" either. Just kind of blah.
