Light corn aroma, some beer-like flavor (maybe some hops?) Ends a bit sweet. If you gotta drink swill, this one isn't as bad as most budmillercoors products.

I saw this beer and thought it looked like a cheap rip-off of Guinnes, but for some odd reason, I still felt a desire to add it to my six pack. To quote the kick-a$$ country song, "What was I thinking?" Takste like a bad Miller High Life. Man, at least it's smooth...would be good warmer at a frat party or something, but that's about it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2009 Crystal clear yellow brew. Large white head. Scattered lacing.
Smells like an American pale lager. Honey, green apple, white pepper and corn. Light-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Regarding flavor, it’s a bit on the sweet side. Not very malty... just sweet. Weak hops provide token bitterness. Short, not-so-clean finish.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 I don’t know about all this cream ale stuff... tasted more like an American standard. Pretty good for the price though... easy to drink. Beats the crap out of most beers in the same price range.

A little smoother than the serious swill I usually drink. A little tastier, especially for the price.

Golden color, white head. Lightly malty, lightly hopped. Very smooth and drinkable and, also, very forgetable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light gold color. Rapidly diminishing white head. Somewhat malty taste with a hint of hopps. Good mouthfeel but overall just a little above the American macro average. Beware the next day after effects of this brew.

Genny cream ale is a great tasting, cheap, cream ale. It costs next to nothing and still delivers a solid taste. One of my best buys.

See Genesee Ale Rating, very similar to it, little creamy, less taste, more carbonation and head.
