crisnee (4) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 3, 2013
1" whitish head that fades fairly quickly. Little lacing, good carbonation. Light Gold color. Pleasant grain/malt aroma, champagne like feel, slightly sweet flavor. Very nice cheap beer. Good everyday light flavor beer.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pours perfect yellow with a fat head of loose white bubbles that falls pretty fast. Perfect clarity no chill haze. Nose is light malt sweetness with a bit of depth and maybe a hint of corn. Taste is perfectly delicious. Forward malt with a crisp dry sweetness take the palate and something twangy. A bit of fruitiness from ale yeast and a light tartness comes in behind it. Some grassy hops finish it off. Slightly sticky, lager bite from carbonation and a medium creamy mouthfeel. Before you know it the corn has gone into the background and itís a light honey you are tasting. This is a delicious and easy drinking beer.

Itís Iconic and so very cheap at $1.29 for the tall boy can.

Drank from a twenty four ounce tall boy! Decent beer to have a change from the generic drinking of Miller or Coors.

Sledutah (4666) - Utah, USA - JUL 27, 2014
16oz can picked up at The Grapevine
Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates to a ring in the glass, spotty lacing. Mild aroma of light pils malts, grainy and some honey. Thin mouthfeel, light malts and hops, papery
Thin all around, flavored water. Not bad for a hot day

Vestlake (143) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a clear straw color with a one finger head. Aroma will remind you a little of a lager, just not as strong. As with the aroma, the taste will remind you of a lager but smoother and blander. Goes down very easy. I had no problem finishing the 24 oz. good for what it is, easy drinking, cheap beer. I didnít mind drinking it one bit.

Ebenezer (5) - - JUL 12, 2014 does not count
I know this beer doesnít get the big high ratings of the hugely-hopped IPAs etc., but I gotta tell ya, I just finished an ice cold 16-ounce can of Genny Cream Ale, sitting in the shade after cutting the grass on a hot humid day and boy, was it refreshing.

generallee08 (647) - New York, USA - JUN 17, 2014
It had a light golden yellow color with visible carbonation and an average size white fluffy head. The head faded as I drank and left some spotty lace that slides down the sides of the glass. The aroma is full of sweet grain and corn adjuncts. There are some light hints of grassy hops as well. Its flavor is mostly sweet grain with a heavy corn flake cereal character. The hops are mild in flavor but offer more in the way of bitterness to the mix. On the tongue there is a slick creamy texture with some fizzy carbonation inside its light to medium body.

ScipioA (288) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Never had this not out of the can so who knows on the appearance and aroma. Surprisingly clean and traditional flavor for a macro, none of the stale/cardboard flavors you frequently get. Instead you get sweet honeyed corn, white bread, and a hint of spicy European hop. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. Decent, one of the better cheap beers out there.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUN 7, 2014
Not very special but drinkable while camping. Creamy indeed, and has an enjoyable level too.

berkshirejohn (4487) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at Buffalo Airport. Straw with a thin white head; grainy aroma; soft, bready taste with a creamy mouth feel; and a sweet finish. Not unpleasant,

Luvystypotables (622) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma of dough, yeast and grain, yellow colour with a creamy white head, heavily carbonated. Sweet taste of grains and dough, with a creamy feel and almost no aftertaste.
