Gorgeous perfect 5 pour. Dark red with a creamy beige head. Absolutely lovely. Thatís where the fun stops. Sweet roasted corn aroma is ok. Iíd be willing to bet this is Genesee beer or cream ale with coloring added. There just isnít anything in the flavor to say itís something different than that. Paid $6.49 for a 12 pack of bottles (Heritage collection). Looks better than it is.

Genny Red is a clear, sparkling, amber lager with a turbulent, white film. It has a pretty fruity aroma with a bit of sweetness and a slight funk. It kind of smells like a hybrid of Genny Cream Ale and Genny Bock. Itís pretty light bodied and pretty smooth. The finish is reasonably clean. The flavor is mostly sweet, fruity malt and a barely detectable, wooden bitterness. Thereís a little rubber flavor at the finish, but not much. This is just a swilling beer, really. It has more character than a standard macro, but nothing to offend a standard macro drinker. It really does seem like a mix of their Cream Ale and Bock.

Copper hue with small off white head. Nose of biscuit, cereal, and corn. Taste follows in order with addition of light caramel. Mild bitterness from grass. Light carbonation leads to a silken but thin body.

From the files: toss up whether this or the Cream Ale were the most foul of the Genny line. Red was reddish, maltish, a fine laxative with a minimal amount of alcohol

Pours mahogany with a thin off white head. Smells of sweet malt, some caramel, some spicy hints. Tastes sweet and earthy with some tea hints on the finish.

Amber in color with a white head. Light, slightly sweet aroma. Taste is same, with caramel components. Not bad for robot produced industrial beer.

12oz can-pours a white head and gold with orange color. Aroma is medium/light malt, cream ale. Taste is medium/light malt, cream ale, faint hops. OK/mild carbonation. 3.0 For $11 for 30pk could be 3.2, therefore 3.1

College beer that fits the workingmanís budget. Itís a great value, but itís far too sweet for me now. Itís a fridge filler for sure. Iíll pick the Cream Ale first.

Only found this in 30-pack cans, but had to try it once. Pours a nice amber color with a decent, creamy head. Faint, mildly corny/sweet aroma. Nice lightly malted, roasted/caramel flavor. Suprisingly good for a cheap macro American lager. Highly favorable in comparison to Bud/MGD/Busch/PBR/Coors/etc.
This might just be my new stock beer, but only since I canít get Yuengling in Akron without driving across the OH/PA line.

Can. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, corn, and grain. Flavor is smooth, sweet, slight caramel, corn, and grain. Nothing great, but not horrible.
