Legend has it that they make this beer by just scooping cans out of the sh*t-green Genesee River. One would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

The only beers worse than this one are Genny Cream Ale and Golden Anniversary. Rochester is the shit beer capital.

This beer is named after a river (Genesee) that runs through Rochester NY. What do you think it taste like?

3.6% alcohol man thats weak. Well i’ve had a few worse beers. This one wasn’t too watery, but it did have that crappy light beer taste. Its like drinking diet soda and having to deal with that horrible nutra-sweet after taste YUCK!

Nose is fait cider, light malt, lemon, bread. Very VERY light tan body. Head fades quickly. Kind of fruity - lemon - with someting sour and a bittersweet bready finish. Overy carbonated, thin mouthfeel. Still, its humid, 90 degrees out and I’ve had worse.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 A beautiful summer day...Rochester Red Wings...Genny Lite. Brings a tear to my eyes. Hey, its a macro American light beer...but it is my hometown. And it really is better than Coors, Bud or Miller.

This beer is soooo sentimental. Its so tough for me to rate this beer without being influenced by all the beirut games won and lost with this beer as a third partner. I guess I will have to be technical. The aroma is of machine churned barley and bean curd. The golden color doesnt mask the underlying corn flavors. The best thing about this beer is that it is light and so it tastes less like genny regular. However I just ran the beirut table and have class at 9 tomorrow and I owe it all to this beer. Thanks for the memories you piece o’crap.
