I decided if i was going to lIve in western ny, i have to at least have the cheap beer from there. Enter Genny light. Light yellow, thin non existent head. Thin nose of corn. Corn corn corn on the front with bitterness. No hop flavor or aroma. Watery and thin body. Typical macro swill, but it claims to be nothing but that.

Can (Old Notes)-Pours a lighter golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn. Taste of the same. This is just another light bodied light beer.

It has more flavor than a lot of light beers and a little more color than a Bud or Miller light. Initial flavor is sweet, almost fruity.

Can - fair size foamy head, pale straw color, sweet corn aroma and flavor, pretty weak in flavor strength, pretty much your typical cheap light lager ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2013
24 oz can: Clear, still, gold with a cloud-like white head. Scent is slightly sharp grain, barley. Taste is impossibly light.....malt, corn. Quite probably the most tasteless, watery, beer ever brewed. Like making a cup of tea by putting the bag in a cup of water and dunking it 3-4 times.

Tallboy. Corn and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet barley malt flavor. Light body. No off flavors but pretty bland.

24 ounce can from some random place. Pours a very pale clear yellow color that is mostly head. The monstrous creamy white head fades quickly. Aroma of hay, grain, corn, something approaching hoppiness. The taste is tart malts, corn, dust. Thin bodied. Blech.

99 cents for a tallboy can. Guess that sets the mood for this review. Pours a crystal clear urine-yellow with typical explosive white head. No aroma whatsoever. None. Taste is pretty average for a light beer... not horrible, but not something I would want to pay more than 99 cents for. Corn dominates, and some cheap malts and maybe a hint of skunky hops at the end. Goes down like water, especially at under 4% abv. My curiosity is satisfied, and I will never buy this again. Also a note: this is not a get-drunk-cheap beer. I finished the whole thing in less than 20 minutes and barely feel anything. This is a lawnmower/fishing boat beer.

Some people say this is better than Genesee, but I think the only difference is more water in this to take away the harsh taste. Cant complain at the price though.

Ratman197 (9444) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle poured a clear gold wth a lasting white head. Aromas of straw and earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth watery finish. Flavors of bread and light straw with a smooth watery finish.

Very, very light yellow with immediately dissapearing white foam head. Aroma is almost not present, taste is watered down pilserner, only some malty tones present. No aftertaste, flushed most of it away. (Montreal 201210)
