Really not all that bad for a cheap beer.

Dominated by corn, perhaps a hint of other grains; quick-dying artificial head; nasty metallic bitterness hints at the end. A cult beer in some parts of the East and Midwest; just like Coors used to be a cult beer everywhere that morons lived.

Good for what it is. Better than Miller or Bud. Not as good as Little Kings. Nothing offensive but nothing special.

It is no miller high life, but this stuff isn’t bad. It is pretty smooth and had a real amber look to it.

It’s been a few years since I bought a case of Genny Cream Ale. Pouring the contents of the 16 ounce returnable bottle into a mug I was surprised by the deeper than expected yellow color and full, but short lasting head. The beer itself had a creamy, easy to drink taste. There was a hint of sour in the aftertaste. I wish this beer was still available in seven ounce bottles for summer consumption. However, when you pay $12.40 for a case of sixteen ounce returnables bottles there isn’t to much to complain about.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2003 Well this has my three way tie for worst beer in the world with beast and natty ice. A guy i knew used to microwave these things a little while, said they tasted better that way. i dont think anything can make this beer taste better. the taste is pure ALCOHOL. fizzy, alcohol. i guess the price is right, though i would never buy it.

Not very ’creamy.’ The cans look like they would have oil in them, especially the old steel ones.

This one’s one of my faves when I’ve got to drink a cheap American Standard. It’s surprisingly pleasant, somewhat malty and is even a bit creamy. Perhaps sweeter than most. Decent.
