COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with both two-row and six-row barley malts to produce a light beer with distinctive taste and character.

24 oz can: Clear, still, gold with a cloud-like white head. Scent is slightly sharp grain, barley. Taste is impossibly light.....malt, corn. Quite probably the most tasteless, watery, beer ever brewed. Like making a cup of tea by putting the bag in a cup of water and dunking it 3-4 times.

Tallboy. Corn and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet barley malt flavor. Light body. No off flavors but pretty bland.

24 ounce can from some random place. Pours a very pale clear yellow color that is mostly head. The monstrous creamy white head fades quickly. Aroma of hay, grain, corn, something approaching hoppiness. The taste is tart malts, corn, dust. Thin bodied. Blech.

99 cents for a tallboy can. Guess that sets the mood for this review. Pours a crystal clear urine-yellow with typical explosive white head. No aroma whatsoever. None. Taste is pretty average for a light beer... not horrible, but not something I would want to pay more than 99 cents for. Corn dominates, and some cheap malts and maybe a hint of skunky hops at the end. Goes down like water, especially at under 4% abv. My curiosity is satisfied, and I will never buy this again. Also a note: this is not a get-drunk-cheap beer. I finished the whole thing in less than 20 minutes and barely feel anything. This is a lawnmower/fishing boat beer.

Some people say this is better than Genesee, but I think the only difference is more water in this to take away the harsh taste. Cant complain at the price though.

Bottle poured a clear gold wth a lasting white head. Aromas of straw and earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth watery finish. Flavors of bread and light straw with a smooth watery finish.

Very, very light yellow with immediately dissapearing white foam head. Aroma is almost not present, taste is watered down pilserner, only some malty tones present. No aftertaste, flushed most of it away. (Montreal 201210)

ronaldtheriot (1332) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Genny Light has a thick, stark-white head and a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, with splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of musty, sour grains, grain husks, and faint grape juice. Taste is of sweet and sour grain, faint grape, and corn meal. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Genny Light finishes decently crisp and refreshing. This is a budget beer, and it presents itself as such. RJT

Bottle from someone, probably John. Pours clear yellow. White head. Nose/taste of corn, metal and grain. Light body. Not much going on.

Willie Nelson may have written a song called "Genny" that talked about a sweet, light bodied thing that was popular with the 3rd shifters in upstate NY. Genny hangs out at State Fair parking lots and next to the 36 packs in gas station convenient stores and was good for a cheap date in the back of a truck. Itís east coast High Life. Itís a cheap, light beer thatís not-so-bright yellow and sweet. I liked it just about as much as I liked Yuengling. In a subpar style - pale lager - Genny LIght is ok.
