Continuation of west ny cheap beer. Yellow fizz appearance, no nose or flavor profile besides corn. Enough bitterness. Slight metallic element. Slightly more body than genny light. Next!

24 ounce can for $1.59. Pours a pale gold with a nice white head. Mild aroma of grain and malt. Taste is the same. Not much for taste, but it is not offensive.

My hometown lager. We always mocked Genny Cream Ale here, but that seems to be the one with a rep outside the area. Really not especially bad for its style, and that ABV looks to be way up to 5%. Certainly best if you don’t let it warm up.

12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and grains with a little metallic apple. Taste is light sweet. Corn and grains with the same metallic apple and a little sugarwater. Light bodied with a thin yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Overall, not bad. Ive had much worse.

Tried this beer for kicks cuz I?d never seen or heard of it- and it was cheap.Call me crazy, I like this beer. The flavor is light and crisp malty and corny, yet not unclassily so unlike other cheap American domestics. Over carbonated slightly, to be expected- you can taste the grits though, and I like that. Finish is actually smoother than other beers in its class exept Coors, but Coors is just alcohol fizzy water colored. Overall a great beer for 98 cents, would recommend to cheapies.

Tallboy. Pale in color. Grassy, hay and pale malt. Oddly refreshing on a hot summer day.

For many years, I avoided drinking any Genesee products. Heeding the warnings of my friends to avoid the "Genny Cream screamers", it was not until I my mid-30’s that a neighbor and picky beer snob offered me a Genny Cream Ale -- In a can. It wasn’t bad. A few years later, my sister poured me a Genny 16 oz-er in a frosty mug after a long summer work out. It was sooooo good. As the price of my old lawn-mowing beer, PBR, soared to $9 a 12, I went in search of its replacement -- Genny bottles. When I discovered that Genny comes in the Blatz-style barrel bottle, I was in. I petitioned our local wine store to begin carrying Genesee Beer in bottles. He happily obliged: a case for $17.85! Done. Dudes, dig it. This is the best domestic pale lager going -- for the price. I have done side-by-side comparisons with other cheap-o’s and more expensive imports (Heineken, Stella). The taste is right there; however, when you calculate price, the joy per unit rate ratio blows away the competition. This is a great session beer. When my palate spasms from super hopped up triple IPA’s to something more chuggable, I reach for a Genny barrel.
