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

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.

Can. A pale straw yellow color body with a quickly fading two finger head , lively carbonation . Aroma of corn beer , faint hops and something lightly sweet . Flavor is corny , straw and light hops , light body , watery mouthfeel , not too bad but nothing to remember .

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 itís American, and I do love America.

High ranks overall as this was my go to beer in college. Unlike beast and natty, this beer was at least somewhat drinkable.

Clear yellow big white head, vigorous pour. Aroma light and corny and flavor is bland. Not much carbonation and some corny sweetness.

Had these lovely delights right from the can. Wow! This is bad! Tastes like cream corn mixed with rice... Iíll pass next time.

This beer inspires a gag reflex in the back of my throat; bad smell and worse flavor. Unexpectedly bad.

This stuff is bad. My friend from Rochester gave me this as a joke, and thats exactly what it is. Oh well, sounds like the price is pretty low.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 Frat brothers at the Univ. of Rochester must be sending their pledges to the disgustingly polluted Genessee River to fill up their empty, Genny Light cans because there is no difference in taste, or color, or aroma. I refuse to think that High Falls brewery prides itself on this "exceptional" beer. #021 on 14062009, DG.
