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

Bottle. Pours light yellow with a white head. Aroma is malt and grain. Watery body. Flavor is very light malt and tin. Pretty bad, but the flavor is so light that itís at least drinkable.

Like water. Little color, little taste, little aroma, little alcohol. You could drink it all day , but dear god why?

Does anyboby remember the original gennesee light circa 1976? The can was a pretty blue with an odd label. This is s 16 oz can. Processed pale lager aroma. Pale lager appearance, with barely any visible carbonation. However, one taste and the fizziness is readily apparent on the tongue even tho it fades quickly after each swig. Seems to have more alky in it than the 3.6% listed here, No way is this less than 4%, I get a wandering feeling just after one can. Taste follows in the footsteps of the aroma. Rather industrial in flavor yet does not insult. Leaves an odd pale lager after taste on the finish. Fifty cents for a 16 oz can in eastern ohio.

Big olí can from my neighborís refrigerator. Ugh, decent for a light beer but not so great in the grand scheme of things. Isnít much of an aroma some light grassy notes. Nice pale gold pour with a lasting creamy white head and some solid sticky lacing...way to go. Airy and empty to the palate, there is nothing. Malt and hops are at a minimum, but they are noticed. Bland, but so-so for a light beer, unsatisfying.

Iím not sure if this beer is a somewhat new introduction to my area, or if the beer is just that bad that itís nearly impossible to find. Like the "regular" version of this beer, itís a pale lager with the texture of carbonated soda, and about the same potency. Itís not a good sign if the most common box you can find this in is a case.

Had this out of a can. It is the standard tasteless beer, but for some reason Genesee beers have character and make me like them more than I ought to. I donít know why, but I didnít mind this beer. Appearance score is entirely for the can of course.

A nice beer for those who donít like flavor, body, or aroma. An almost tasteless brew. Ho hum.

Never tasted a worse beer. This represents thriftiness and alcoholism at their finest.

From a can. Pours a highly carbonated thin yellow with little head to speak of. If you really give it a sniff, you might notice a hint of malts but mostly you notice metal. Watery. Sort of dry. I donít hate this beer. In fact I prefer it over other more common lights., But when I buy Genesee, I usually go for the Cream Ale or the Bock (when I can find it). At least those merit ratings of 2 on my taste scale.
