Can. My first thoughts when I see this brand are "stale nearly green putrescence!". In other words, I am by no means a fan of "Genny". However, this brew proves to have some redeeming values, most certainly not in the outdated (1970’s) can art! Anyways, the brew poured a slight reddish brown with a very nice thick head, which diminished quickly. Aromas are that of sweet malts and some notes of caramel. Very light bodied and in flavour as well. But it is quite drinkable. This is by no means a typical bock, I think they sort of missed their target, but made a decent brew at that! Enjoy it if you can find it.
From old tasting notes. Translucent medium dark brown color with a foamy tan head. Faint roasted malt nose reminiscent of baked beans. Ligh sweet roasted malt flavor upfront. Middle flattens out and tends to be slightly salty. Finish is toasted mal and light hops. A decent cheap Bock beer. wlajwl (6801) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2017
Aroma and flavor is malts, mild fruit and a relatively clean/mildly sweet finish. Comparing it to craft examples isn’t fair but it was pretty decent. ehaak26 (518) - - MAR 28, 2017
On tap at the Taproom on 104. As others have said, it’s probably Genny’s best offering. Tastes like being home. jsnicholas (627) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Can. Light brown, whitish head. Some Carmel malts. Easy drinking, but noting special. slowrunner77 (12031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Still bordering on mass produced swill, but of the malty non-offensive kind. I’d take a free one but wouldn’t buy one. Same with any Gene.

Can. Clear golden amber color, thin white head. Aroma of light caramel. Taste is lightly metallic caramel. bnokk (534) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2016
APPEARANCE- dark amber color with slightly beige head.
NOSE- earthy & slightly bitter hop scent.
FLAVOR- a bit malty with slightly bitter hop flavors.
NOTES- May be one of Genesee’s best offerings, but does not stand up well to the bock beer style. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Can shared poured cola brown sweet malt and caramel in the nose and the flavor not so good all the way around. I found nothing here drinking sweet caramel water. csaso (2283) - Missouri, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle - small foamy head, dark amber/brown color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, some earthy hop balance in the background, not bad overall
