See Genesee Ale Rating, very similar to it, little creamy, less taste, more carbonation and head.

Had this in Rochester NY. Small head, somewhat fizzy. Crisp flavor, medium color. Not a bad cream ale.

It's been awhile since I had a cream ale. Not missing much. Medium color, medium body, medium aroma. Overall, medium. Crisp, light not bad.

Ernest (7509) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. More bland juice, for sweet tooths.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 Not a bad beer at all, considering it's another macro brew. Smells sweet, like fresh cut hay. Pours out a darker shade of pale yellow, with a nice, creamy white head that fades slowly. Some malts in the nose, with that classic American corn and rice aroma. Not a bad tasting beer either. Certainly not the best, but good enough for the style. Has that certain cream ale tang to it. It has a smooth mouthfeel, very creamy and velvety. I like this beer for many reasons, being cheap is not among them, however. It's worth trying at least once in your lifetime. And at $11.49 for 30 cans, you can't beat the price either. Cheaper even than PBR.

I drank this by accident one. The bartender gave me the wrong glass and I didn't bother to think before taking a big swig.

Hmm... what to think, what to think. Here is what I sense: ugly yellow beer with lots of carbonation, keeping a frothy white lacing for a long time. Rather plain aroma. Sweet flavor, lager-like with a hint of apple in the aftertaste. Nothing particularly offensive, but definitely just blah American Standard flavors. I paid $0.99 for this. [Brain processes the sensory input.] Bad beer that is cheap. Does that make it good value? No. It is still bad beer. If I had to choose among bad beers, however, I would be attracted to its sweetness.

This beer is one that helped me survive college. It is got more flavor to it than most of the other beers we consumed in school. Hops and some sweetness present, but still must be quite cold to avoid a bit in the finish.

"Aroma is not impressive. Appearance is like any other American Standard. Flavor is what makes it stand out somewhat from other cheap beers. Slight hint of hops with a whipped cream taste. Smooth and easy to drink." Ditto. There's too many good beers out there to waste my money on this one again.
