Bland, metallic like aroma with a bit of skunk-like essence. Very pale golden appearance with not much of a head or lacing. Tinny flavor, not very refreshing. Not very smooth going down.

Very bland and watery. There's really no flavor. It's not foul like other light beers, but there's just no flavor at all. There's really nothing to say. It's just extremely boring.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at Greater Rochester International Airport - Rochester, NY] Pours a very pale yellow with a small thin head and very few bubbles. Has a very weak hoppy aroma. The initial taste is one of hops, but that is about it. Very thin-bodied, mostly water. Easy to drink because of that fact, and also because it does not have much in the way of a taste. Not too good, but not a horrible light beer.

Typical light beer...watery, bland tasting. For the money, go for Genny Cream Ale.

Surprisingly similar to the regular Genesee lager. It's almost if they took regular Genny and just added more water. Even though it tries to remain close to Genny, it still is a below average light beer.

Could be worse, or maybe going to college only a few miles from High Falls Brewery, I have consumed so much Genny light that it is merely a fact of life and I have resigned to my fate to drink bad beer. At least it is light and resembles a good mass produced beer (which aren't good) in taste enough to be bearable.

I love how the commercials for this beer say it is a "real beer" & "full of flavor". It has a disgustingly very pale yellow body topped by a thin white head with little lace. Ummmmm....THERE IS NO AROMA! Not much flavor here either! COME ON MAKE BEER ALREADY! What flavor I could taste was slightly sweet with sour notes. Very, Very light bodied, watery and smooth.

I love this beer, it has a light taste. Some people may not appreciate it, because its cheap...but it goes down easy and doesn't have a bitter after taste. Different beers for different occassions.

Definately a cringe beer. I don't think anyone would drink this if it weren't advertised so much, but hey, that's why it's advertised isn't it? In one radio spot a guy actually says "Genny Light's a great beer." Please.
