Not as bad as people make it out to be, it is definitely not high quality stuff but does the trick.

Not as good as I wanted it to be. Flavor tries hard to act like beer and comes close, but it just has a weird aftertaste to it. Also, like Cobra said, it definitely will have you reaching for the Gas-X. On the plus side, I really enjoyed the can design...

Another good beer from High Falls brewery. Not the best macro swill I've ever had, but certainly not the worst either. Has a
pleasant maltiness to it, with just the right amount of hops to balance it out. Smells about like you'd expect. Grainy, corny, and
hoppy for starters. Goes down smooth, like this style of beer should. Has a pleasant aftertaste to it also. A little on the over
carbonated side, however. More than two of these will give you gas, that much is certain. A fairly smooth, well rounded beer
overall. Nice to drink in the summertime as a lawnmower beer. Try some for yourself the next time you cut the grass.

This is actually decent beer. Don't poor it into a glass; it looks like piss. Simple, agreeable taste with a nice finish. Still swill though.

You know, I was surprised by this beer. For the price, it actually has a little bit of taste and goes down smooth.

One of the better domestics. Light flavor that goes down smooth. Much better from a bottle than the can, flavor is very different.

I do not like domestic beer really and it's generally a bit dull. While Genesee is not completly exempt it is a good beer. No bitterness, no after taste and a plesent flavor. Yet is it is unexciting in style. Good for its type though

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2004 I REALLY wanted to like this beer. I didn't. Tasted like drinking liquified aluminum. Very metalic tasting and very watery. It has more flavor that some cheap beers but the flavor is mostly of metal.

For the money, not bad!
Not a really rich tasting beer, but doesn't have that cheap,watery, budget piss beer taste, body, etc... at 9.99 a 30 pack this beats Stroh's by miles. A decent "everyday" kind of beer. (The Red Lager however is much better and a real bargain at the same price!)

Pale yellow color with a thin white head and fairly good lace. Slightly sour malt aroma with a touch of sweetness. Watery well balanced flavor with a touch of bitterness and a slightly hoppy finish. Light bodied and smooth.
