Purchased as a 6 pack, it’s also part of the heritage collection from Genny. Smooth drinkability and good value.

No joke, drank this with my friend Merv. He said it wasn’t as smooth as 211, I disagree.

Aroma is sweetish grains and a hint of vanilla. The flavor is sweet malts, almost cloying and a sour twang in the finish.

Bif (2210) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Stubbie bottle from the Heritage Collection. Pours a dark golden color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness bit of citrus and grain. Taste is a bit tart with a mild malt sweetness. this continues to a mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and quite smooth. Easy drinker. Not bad for what it is.

MacBoost (1879) - Victor, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2012
12oz stubbie from the new heritage pack. Pours a clear light amber. Comparing this one to the Fyfe and Drum I just had from the same pack, this one has a lighter color but smells noticeably danker in the nose. Some hop presence. Also getting a lot of sweet corn in the nose too. Taste is sweeter but also has a small hop bite as opposed to the Fyfe. This one is maltier too. Standard Genesee product, not much to rave about but super cheap and no detectable flaws.

Patrickctenchi (6519) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Stubby to English Pint: Pours a clear, honey-gold with slightly off-white head. Scent is initially metallic, slight malt. Taste is fairly sweet malt, creamy, simple. I rather like it. It’s very smooth and the breadiness as it goes is quite pleasant. A fairly good little beer.

Pours a medium-gold with a thin white head. The pessimist in me could say it’s a weak-tasting ale, but the optimist finds this to be an intriguing halfway point between a crisp pale lager and a more robust ale (don’t know whether they meant for this). Light to medium bodied, easy-drinking. Pleasant grain aroma, though at times something seemed a little off. Caught off guard by a fairly sour taste. Not great, but not bad either.

Dacrza (945) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2012
Glassware: Kisatsky Tavern pint... Occasion: Spring break Thursday... Appearance: thin, sallow golden body that bubbled and crackled as it poured; the head is thick, chunky white and promises lacing...Aroma: all malt and hay...Palate: light to medium-bodied, with late carbonation and smoothness to the tongue...Taste: as exxpected, a stepping stone between the 40-ounces we pounded in college and the more mainstream fair that is served at backyard barbeques...light enough to pair with probably anything as a washdown, but too late to influence the palate while eating... Overall: no hatred or disappointment here, just what the retro bottle promised--and the dude who told me at the beer store that he couldn’t see why the new package wasn’t selling nearly paid for the purchase itself--as another old-school German brewery (a la Yuengling and Lord Chesterfield) does a nearly hopless ale. Pleasing in its blank canvas...

uvajed (187) - Ravenna, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2012
12oz stubby bottle from a "heritage" variety pack, which is the only way to find this around here. Cool bottle, old school looking box, and came with Cream Ale and regular Genesee. Aroma slightly sweet and malty. Taste is the same - simple, with a little malt and sweetness. Not spectacular in any way, but meets the company’s claim of being smooth.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Has a light golden color. Smell is bready, malts. Taste is slightly sweet, bready and malty, a touch of hops. Overall an easy drinking and pretty good beer.
