2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
BA transfer -
poured from bottle into into chilled pint glass
Appearance - A pale straw color with a head that quickly faded.
Smell - A bit of sweetness with a little bit of hoppiness later on detected.
Taste - Fairly sweet, but not in a sickeningly way. corm up front, followed by some honey and hop tastes later.
Mouthfeel - Average mouthfeel. Good level of carbonation and a very average body for the style. A bit better then the average.
Overall - For its price and style a good brew. Nothing working pining over, but a good session beer for those of us without disposable income.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with a half finger of quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of corn, grains and something a little skunky. Taste is medium sweet. Mostly corn and cotton candy. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Not bad.

I really have nothing to complain about since I drank like six of these cans at $2.50 a pop. I didn’t get much more than a $2.50 malted barley experience but it was better than the PBR cans at the same price. Cheers to cheap beers.

$0.99 for a 24 ounce can; couldn’t pass it up. First time drinking any Genesee. Pretty similar to an American lager but I could actually detect a bit of hops. Really clean, smooth finish on this beer. Typically not a favorite style of mine but for what it is, and for the price, it’s pretty decent.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
24 oz can. Nose is lightly sweet and dusty, faint pale malt and a suggestion of corn. Transparent golden with avg carb and a creamy, rocky white head. Taste is sweet with light metallic character, but the finish and aftertaste are couch-meltingly bready with a bit of pretzel; medium body is spritzy and creamy. Gentle mild malt, even a touch lemony, with faint corn. Honestly, I’m appreciative of what they’re going for, and they do manage to pull it off without harsh grain or cloying slop, just wish it were a tad cleaner.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 2/20
Golden in the glass, white head. The beer starts sweet, grainy, easy drinkable without any nice aroma. The mainpart is for my taste too sweet, grainy, very low in carbonation. Easy drinkable, but not good. The aftertaste is sweetish, grainy. Absolutely not deep.
A very bad beer - even for a session I would not recommend this. --> 2/12/2/2

Can. Pale yellow with small white creamy head, citrusy aroma, high carbonation, sweetish taste with sourness at the end, abrupt finish. Generic beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Can: Clear-out discount, 12-pack of tallboys for a mere 9$. Regardless of the beer, how could I say no? Golden-amber color with moderate chill haze that slowly clears over time, topped with a wispy white head that fizzles away in just a few seconds of the pour. Aroma is mild but inoffensive. Lager yeast, bread & biscuity malt, lightly sweet corn, a touch metallic. Taste has more sweet corn & corn flakes, crisp lager yeast, bready malt, & some earthiness in the back-end. Understated, musty & spent hops bring up the rear; almost Noble seeming, but very subdued & hard to pinpoint overall. Over-carbonated at first, but within 15 minutes, the carbonation disperses & the beer actually has a nice, smooth mouth feel. Crisp, relatively dry finish. It’s not going to win any awards anytime soon, but it’s surprisingly drinkable for what it is. Not a bad "stand-by" for the times you want to drink just to, well, drink.

Can - big foamy head, very pale straw color, pretty generic pale lager sweet corn/malt aroma and flavor, a little bit of a smoother/creamier finish I guess, nothing special here
