Bottle. Aroma of pale malt and a hint of grass. Medium gold color with a decent white head that attempted to lace. Rather thin in body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is grainy sweet with just a very little grassy hop. Way better than American macros. Finish is not too dry, but the whole thing is acceptable, if it’s lager time.

brokensail (10780) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Big fucken can @ home. Very pale yellow pour with a short lived white head. Light lemon peel aroma, maybe some grass and cracker malt. Really bland and watery otherwise. Tastes like it smells: bland. A touch of cracker and bready malt sweetness, lemon peel, and very light grass. No bitterness. Just slightly sweet malt/corn water.

Can. Better then the average cold wet alcohol, but was still worth having once for the tick. You have to love MI for good beers and HG can beers.

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Canned @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, golden yellow appearance with a decently lasting white head. Corn, spritzy carbonated, sugary aroma. Watery, sugary, Lemon, corn flavor. Not very good or smooth.

Drake (8322) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2014
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.

DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours light yellow...not much flavor or aroma. Genesee always tastes metallic to me, and the afertaste is horrible.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
Very pale yellow, decent white head. Macro slighty grassy aroma. Bland, slightly sweet malt. Boring. Light body that is surprisingly smooth. Not painful.

shrubber85 (7553) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Sour corn/barley malt aroma. Pale yellow color with large head. Lightly sweet corn and barley malt flavor. Light hint of hops in the finish. Guess it was worth $7.99 for a 12 pack.
