Drjohnrock (828) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2013 Poured from 16 ounce can at MOTR Pub at Scrawl concert on September 15, 2012. Light gold color, small white head that quickly vanished with little lacing, unpleasant smell of cheap perfume and wet cardboard, taste like the aroma but without the wet cardboard and with some astringency. If you’re low on cash, Genny Light and Genesee Cream Ale are much better options.

drunk on tap at the brewhouse, not particularly exciting but nothing too offensive, doesn't have the sweet taste of Genny Cream which in my book is a very good thing

On tap at the bar across the street from My Airbnb in Schenectady. Crystal clear deep yellow with a thin bubbly white head. Earthy grainy corny notes not the worst beer I had on this trip but far from the best.

24 fl oz can. Pours clear and golden yellow. Small white head. Aroma is grassy and slight straw. Flat cornish, dry. Grassy and straw finish.

I like macro pale lagers to an extent but this was worse than most. I love their cream ale so I figured I’d give this a shot. Terrible. No aroma. Light clear bubbly gold with a one finger white head. Taste was literally like carbonated water with a hint of sugar. Mild carbonation.

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.

2.3
bunget (1002) - 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.
