Can. Clear yellow with medium head. Aroma is faint, grain and some chemical or other. Light body but somehow a little fuller than I would have expected. Some carbonation. Taste is watery corn. Can be easily gulped down but hard to see the point of doing so.

29-Oct-10 (12-oz bottle, Bottled on 01-Dec09: BevMo in Solana Beach, CA) I just don’t understand the point of even making an alcoholic beverage like this. Why would anyone even bother to drink something like this? It pours a crystal-clear body that is golden-straw in color, and a quarter of an inch of white head that settles rapidly to a partial, filmy sheen. The beer smells and tastes like metal, cardboard, corn sugar, and bad box cereal. Thin and very watery on the palate with medium, but sharp carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty awful.

Can. Yellow. Almost no aroma, neutral, mild, watery. Not very good at all.

Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Pour from a 24 oz can. Very pale yellow, clear, with a puffy white head. LIght corny aroma. Not much taste - a litte corn sweet and and little pervading sourness with vegetal overtones. Not offensive.

Drank from a 24oz can I got at the supermarket for only $1!!

Appearance: classic pale lager appearance: BRIGHT yellow color, extremely clear, very bubbly. Surprisingly large, foamy, sudsy head (evaporates almost completely and leaves no lacing)

Aroma: Smells like a Molson or Labatt macro lager. Some kind of chemical funk to it. Not a skunkiness like Heineken, though.

Taste: Starts out very neutral with almost no taste at all. Obviously, very watery and bland with perhaps a touch of corn sweetness found in adjunct macro light lagers like this. As it warms it becomes more and more sour with a metallic finish. It eventually becomes undrinkable (so drink it fast!)

Mouthfeel: for such a light beer it’s a little thicker than I’d expect. Quite tepid body - so it doesn’t tear up your tongue with carbonation.

Drinkability: Initially very sluggable, but as it warms and becomes more sour it’s a challenge to drink. And at 3.6% ABV it’s the kind of beer you can slam can after can.

Overall: Hey for only $1 it wasn’t much of a gamble but I definitely wouldn’t buy it again. Stick with Genny Cream Ale.

Bif (2003) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2010
22oz Can- Pours a pale golden color with a big foamy head that fades to nice lacing. Has a very mild grain aroma, sort of musty. Prety bland taste, very light sweet grain flavor. Light body, crisp and somewhat refreshing. Goes down smooth & easy. Typical low budget lawnmower beer.

riversideAK (6098) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Generic light adjunct sweet nose. Can is rather boring and in need of new graphics. Looks very generic. Flavor is light adjuncty sweetness and a light clean finish. Body is minimal and so is character. Should have went with Pabst, Ranier, or High Life.

Big frothy head at pour but quickly dissipates. Smells like corn and metal, your cheap beer alternative to Bud and Busch Light essentially.

Genny Light is brewed with Rochester, NY in mind. Rochester water is pure and delicious, crisp and clean... I love the sound a Genny can makes when you crack it open and the aromatics take over... Not only is this a great beer, but it’s American, and I do love America.
