God defenitly knew what he was doing when he created the Genesee River. If your wallets getting thin, and you just lost your watch last night pick up a 30 of Genny Light.

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.

There is no better beer then Genny Light that comes in 30 packs for $14.95. It wouldn’t be fair to compare to an A4 to a Altima. This is a great beer compared its peers that’s what is important and relevant. -CB

I love this beer, it has a light taste. Some people may not appreciate it, because its cheap...but it goes down easy and doesn't have a bitter after taste. Different beers for different occassions.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2016 My tasting notes for this just say, "Light Beer 3.5." I don’t reckon I can really add a different angle to that that will really tell you any more about how this beer tastes so just say it’s clean and easy drinking and leave it at that.

Transfer from BA review on 11-15-12- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a light straw color with a huge white head. The head fades very rapidly to leave only a tiny amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is of a malt and a light corn and bready nature with some papery smells mixed within. Taste – The taste starts out with some caramel and corn sweetness. There is a light bready taste up front as well. These flavors create a base and remain rather constant throughout the taste. Only toward the end dose a lighter bittering hop come to the tongue and with a slight fading of the sweetness, it leaves a rather drier and crisp feeling on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The beer’s body is quite light and watery and the carbonation level is rather high. Both are good for the style as they make for a very refreshing and easy drinking brew. Overall – While certainly not the most flavorful, it is rather refreshing and at only $1.29 for a 24 oz can it makes for a great session brew.

Another good beer at a low price. It seems that all the quality beers come at a low price. That is very convenient. Very good barley taste.
