This ale is the cheapest thing you can find!!! Look, it tastes just as good if not better than Bud light, miller lite, or PBR and is significantly cheaper! The matter of the fact is, Genesee set out to make a cheap beer and got the job done... they’ve done it cheaper than any other brewery thus far. Congratulations!

This is my favorite, it has a taste that other beer have. It is light, but at the same time very tasty. It has a great head. Serve ice cold, to me is the they have to offer

DOC: 6/7/17

2015 BJCP Category: 1C Cream Ale

AROMA: Corn-forward nose though sweet like cereal. Base malt is present, but subtle. No hop presence (none needed). Clean fermentation. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Very clear golden color (4-5 SRM). Sparkling. Fairly large white foamy head retains and laces quite well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Mild palette overall, though corn and base malt are about even in intensity. Slightly sweet cereal-like taste. Perhaps a background note of DMS (seems to have a minor oily/metallic note - but is easy to ignore). Faint spicy hop flavor and bitterness to offer balance. Clean dry aftertaste. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Easily sessionable during warmer weather despite being 5.1%[?] ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: While not as exciting as some of the craft interpretations of the style, this is a progenitor of the style and still exemplifies it many decades later. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 42/50

I loved Genny Ice, so I was intrigued to try Genny Cream. Good creamy frothy taste and goes down smooth. Genny is Good!
