Drake is right, slight ham water. Yellow pour white head that went away quickly. Some fruity malt and corn taste and kind of.like chewing on straw. High carbonation very thin body. Yum.

Mmm... an American classic. 24 ounce tallboy from Bruisin. Smells a bit like ham when I pour it. Pours a pale golden color with a large fizzy tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma of grain, a mild salty, hammy note and a weak attempt at hops. The taste is corn, grain, green apple. Thin, watery, high carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours beautifully. Straw colored golden with a fat white head that fell fast and left splotchy lacing. Brilliant clarity . You could read through it. Lots of bubbles streaming up to the top./ Nose is faint light grain and a touch of cooked corn. A bit of hop herbal and perfectly clean. No fruity esters whatsoever. Just lovely. Taste is crisp with some firm carbonation. Light sweet grain, cooked corn that is sweet and delicious. There is a touch of mineral or metallic on the palate but it’s from the water. This finishes dry and with a nice little bitter to tease you into more and more. Light smooth mouthfeel and you could drink this beer all day. Nothing wrong with it at all but it is thin and develops a watery quality as it warms. It also gains a bit of sour taste from the combined grains as it warms.

Stale cornflakes and sweat. It teeters on being boring and dull, but, it sure kills the time, lads! Jim Jefferies wrote this fuckin’ review while eating my fuckin’ stew that I made on my stove. I feel so accomplished.

12 ounce stubby bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head that slowly fades. Taste is caramel, grass, corn and grain. Aroma is of grass and grain. Has a decent body that coats the mouth. The finish is slightly sweet. Refreshing and easy to drink. A good thirst quencher for the price.

24 oz. can from Jackson’s. Nice looking with high tightly beaded head. For a lager not bad, light on the palate and not too much evidence of the adjunct grains. Crisp, clean, refreshing. Certainly better than some of the big boys, a good summer thirst quencher.

Can thanks to my buddy Red: Drank from the classic white can with simple beautiful label. Aroma is fresh grain. The taste is magical as it opens up memories of my childhood and upstate NY. Does it get any better?

While visiting Berkshire County, Massachusetts I quickly discovered a local "party store" to find some regional beers. In a sea of fun labels and enticing names, my eyes were drawn to a lonely cooler in the back of the store. Inside, I found a shining six-pack of Genesee. Having never heard of it before, I asked the dude at the counter about it. He said "It’s an old-school beer. Grandpa’s drink it." I looked at the two-bit label and knew that I had to try it. As a fan of regionally macro-brewed American Pale Lagers, I knew I had made a good choice. My first sip, I won’t lie, was a bit hard to swallow. It tasted a little bit like an aluminum can. The second through twelfth sips, however, we delightfully crisp and easy to drink. I probably wouldn’t want to drink a warm Genesee but I am satisfied with my purchase. I look forward to trying the other beers in the Genesee family.
