About the same as the Cream Ale. Maybe if you grew up in upstate NY, and your Dad used to load cases of it into the back of the family station wagon, you would have some sort of emotional attachment to Genesee. I didn’t, and don’t, therefore I can say that it sucks.

Not the best beer in the world, probably won’t ever buy it again.

I had this beer a long time ago when I used to sneak them from my dad’s beer stash. Wow this stuff is crap. It’s almost undrinkable. I always finish beers, it’s a discipline thing for me. Well, anyways, this one I wanted to throw out more than any since. It was bad. I just can’t even begin. Bad flavor, bad appearance, thin nasty and watery. Bad Metal taste. Avoid at all costs.

Okay, laugh, but since I live in WNY, I had to rate this WNY classic. Some lacing from a medium head over a typical yellow body, sweet nose. Fairly sweet flavor, watery, some cereal notes, nothing in the hops department, really not good at all. What am I going to do with the rest of this sixer?

I was expecting this to be the worst beer in the world. Actually, it was just as drinkable as most major macro swill. I’m not saying this beer was good, just not as bad as I thought it was going to be. For 2.99 a sixer it could be crucial in a pinch. It had a sweet, grainy flavor of additives.

Gimme a Genny.... NOT. You can understand why the lost market share. People don’t drink swill unless they see it on TV

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Overpowering cereal taste. Grainy and very heavy corn/alcohol taste. a horrible beer by all standards.

Sweet smell, pale yellow, grassy, flat. Light and fluffy, ordinary.

Genesee Beer is adequate, but the Cream Ale’s the one to buy. This is very fizzy and lacks any malt punch.
