Can, malty fruity skunky aroma, malty fruity vanila flavor with a coarse unpleasant bitterness. Just your usual usless macro lager.

I would have to say that this is an awesome pale lager to drink after a hard days work, out in the yard laboring on a hard day, or just to sit back and relax. It’s a lighter tasting beer that is a delight to have. From time to time, there are a few cases where it carries more of a metallic aroma (when from a can) than I would prefer but it quickly dissipates.

Aroma is malts/pale malts, mild corn and slight fruit. The flavor is typical AAL, no nasty notes, a plus. As expected, didn’t reinvent the AAL but like most Genesee beers, it was very drinkable.

This is my "go to" pale lager beer, especially when you really want a nice clean thirst quencher. I occasionally enjoy IPAs and Belgian wheat beers that have much more intense flavor, but this beer is my favorite AAL and also my favorite Macrobrew beer. If you taste test this side by side against Bud, Miller, Coors, Pabst, Labatts, Molson, or any other macrobrew lager- Genny Beer beats them all. Super clean, lightly hopped, no after taste whatsoever - as log as you make sure you buy it in bottles. Here’s the best part - a 12 pack of Genny bottles is $6.50 here in Rochester NY (Wegmans).

Crowler thanks to Jeff. Light yellow color with a thin white head. Creamed corn. Average carbonation.

bunget (942) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
Can. Clear pale yellow body, medium white head with ok retention and decent amount of lacing. Aroma of hay, grains, hard candies and canned corn. Taste of sweet grains, mineral water, sweet corn and some metallic notes. Not the worst lager.

Spab (3726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear pale golden colour with average white head. Aroma is light and grainy with some corn sweetness. Flavour is mellow graininess with gently sweet corn fairly prominent. No real hop presence - they must still be in the Yakima Valley. Light to medium body. Meh (though there are worse North American adjunct lagers).

24 oz can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- "Classic look" white can with red label - nice. Clear light amber color, 3" white head that drops slowly to a full cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is Sweet malt and (probably) corn that moves effortlessly through medium fizz to light bittering that shares the finish with the grain. Not a lot, but one of the better old regional brews.

Raistlin (392) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
Pours dirty yellow with no head to speak of at all. Very watery. Sweet taste and skanky after taste. Leaves bad taste in your mouth that lingers. Not very pleasant. Body is pretty thin with no texture worth mentioning. Not a great beer on any account.
