Cakes (422) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Can, 12 oz. Light yellow. Weak aroma, chemical like. Weak, non distinct taste. Drinking very cold improves taste. Seems like a strong alcohol content. An unimpressive poor. A typical cheap American beer.

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 (917) - 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 (3628) - 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).

rondphoto (4335) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 9, 2016
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 (371) - 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.

weihenweizen (3491) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Refrigerated 16 oz. can poured into a snifter. Clear pale yellow with small white head. Aroma is light grain, light body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is light grain.

Turboninja (702) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2016
[email protected] Tavern, Cleveland, USA. Light aroma of malts. Dirty yellow color with medium white head and clear liquid. Light sweet taste with malts. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall, low-quality bulk product.

ajnepple (6025) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2016
12 oz via can at the 1-up on Colfax. Bland aroma of light corn and toasted grain. Similar flavor, adding a hint of lemon and light sugary sweetness. Meh, light bodied and somewhat drinkable overall.
