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 don’t know why, but I didn’t mind this beer. Appearance score is entirely for the can of course.

A nice beer for those who don’t 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 don’t 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.

Yuck! This beer sucks out loud. It makes me wanna cry. Why would someone unleash this filth onto the world. Sometimes when I pray at night I pray that the good lord will see fit to take this beer from us.

Couldn’t find regular Genesee at Wegmans, so there was the choice between Genny Ice and Genny Light. Knowing that ice beers usually taste like shit, I chose the light. Aroma is somewhere between rusted metal and rotten veggies. Piss-colored, no head. Compared to other macro lights, the flavor is actually surprisingly -- different? After a few cans, it becomes kind of tasty. Nothing to brag about but at least it tastes like beer, not water. Really carbonated upfront, then slides into some astringent aftertaste. Surprisingly I honestly thought the ABV was higher than 3.6 because of the pretty strong taste. As you can tell, I wrote a lot about this cheap beer cause I’ve already had quite a few.

I picked this up by mistake one day. Thought it was the cream ale. I gave it to the neighbor I can’t stand.

Pours pale yellow with thin white bubbly head. Nose is faint corn malt. Fairly inoffensive flavor, with more corn malt and a little metallic taste from the can. Very, very watery mouthfeel, slight metallic aftertaste. Basically water.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 The aroma is faint and unappealing. Lets see, there is fuel with a hint of corn and metal. The appearance is light pale gold with a small head. The flavor is watery with metal in the fore and corn malt in the finish. Notice a trend here? The palate is thin but not as watery as I was expecting. Even so, this beer is pretty much what you would expect.
