Itís been a few years since I bought a case of Genny Cream Ale. Pouring the contents of the 16 ounce returnable bottle into a mug I was surprised by the deeper than expected yellow color and full, but short lasting head. The beer itself had a creamy, easy to drink taste. There was a hint of sour in the aftertaste. I wish this beer was still available in seven ounce bottles for summer consumption. However, when you pay $12.40 for a case of sixteen ounce returnables bottles there isnít to much to complain about.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2003 Well this has my three way tie for worst beer in the world with beast and natty ice. A guy i knew used to microwave these things a little while, said they tasted better that way. i dont think anything can make this beer taste better. the taste is pure ALCOHOL. fizzy, alcohol. i guess the price is right, though i would never buy it.

Not very ícreamy.í The cans look like they would have oil in them, especially the old steel ones.

This oneís one of my faves when Iíve got to drink a cheap American Standard. Itís surprisingly pleasant, somewhat malty and is even a bit creamy. Perhaps sweeter than most. Decent.

Pretty smooth. Grainy aroma and flavor. Somewhat tart and metallic finish. Not bad for $3.50/6.

A little better than plain Genesee. This is probably my favorite among the ultra cheap beers.

When it comes to American piss-water beer, Genny Cream is by far the best. Iíll take it over Bud, Miller, or Coors any day. I almost spooged my pants when I found it in Arizona. As a native of upstate New York, its a requirement that I like this stuff :)

This was an old bottle from the back of the fridge. I dimly remember being unimpressed with it when it was young; is it possible that this improves with age? Pale golden color, little head but moderate carbonation. Very mild, a hint of vanilla, almost like an alcoholic cream soda, but not so much to keep it from being a fairly decent beer. Good with food, as it easily blends into the background.
