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.

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... I’ll 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.

Genny Light. Well while it is not piss, it may aswell be. But still it is Genny Light. It is like the less murkey water of the Genesee River. Only half poluted portion. Oh Genny I miss your number.

Pours pale straw color with a thin fizzy white head. Didn’t pick up much in the nose outside of some light citrussy hints. Tastes grassy and sweet with a watery finish.

Genny Light is a very clear and sparkling, light straw-colored beer with a quickly fading white head. It has an aroma of lemon, corn, black pepper and perhaps some fusel oil. It has a thin body; it’s watery and fizzy. It is barely flavored, but there are notes of lemon peel, corn and hay. It ain’t that great. I drank about half of it and dumped the rest in the sink when no one was looking. Stick to the Cream Ale.
