Flavor of a fine ale and the smoothness of a premium lager.

Better than most in the super-cheap supermarket section, but not something i would ever buy on my own again. Hops are present, but unassertive, malt flavor is nearly invisible and the body struggles to break the line between light and medium.

Funky. Had that not so fresh taste. Not completely horrible but I would not seek it out. Weird.

I have foraged my way through an entire case of Genny Cream with Funk and while it was no great joy you did feel like you really accomplished something at the end of the night. A worthwhile experience and a nice sequel to original Genny.

It was alright. Some sips tasted like a cigarette was in my beer, but itís not a bad tasting drink

This is the worst bad beer. When I think of bad beer, I think of Genesee.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2010 This beer is terrible. This is the retired military manís beer. There is no cream about this crap. It will give a massive hangover and will ignite your ass for days. This is the best beer offered by Genesee, though.(1/1/1/1/1 0.5)------- 9 years after rating this for the first time, I am finally re-rating it. 12 ounce can from some ghetto mart in West Haven, CT. Aroma has a corny, grainy, lighly spicy hopped note. Some sulfur, minerals, and fusels are also present. Transparent yellow-golden body with a surprisingly decent head. Fair retention. This isnít half bad at all. Starts with plenty of sweet corny maltiness, before it becomes very smooth in the middle. Very little harshness. Faint grassy hops to finish. All in all, this isnít very offensive at all, and is quite drinkable. This beer serves as prime example as to why it is important to re-rate.

Pretty good, but nothing beats an original genesee.
