3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good example of what a traditional English ale yeast can provide in the way of fruits (currants, especially) in a light bodied, otherwise fairly neutral substrate. Some malt in aroma and taste, with hops supporting both. Sometimes a blast of DMS, at other times a more pleasant whiff. Highly drinkable, but with more character than most other fizzy mass-market beers. Seems to be at its best a little warmer than ice-cold. Don’t sell this beer short.

355ml can. Got the tick of this one in at the holiday work party. Brought it in specifically to try, just realized i forgot to rate it. It is a basic cream ale, treads on adjunct lager waters. Meh.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 Can poured into a dof tumbler. Light pale color. Clean, crisp tasting. Non-dairy creamer. Fairly sweet, but nothing overwhelming or gross.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
24 oz can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Barely malt in the aroma. Clear light amber with a lot of rising bubbles, smooth white head that settles to a good inch, blobs and globs of lace. Taste is mostly adjunct (corn or rice) with light carbonation, and a finish that quickly sinks to nothingness. The original Genesee has more going for it. This one looks good, but is otherwise way down the list.

Gold, big bubbles.
Disappearing body, no flavor, fizzy, decent heat, refreshing mouthfeel.
Low bitterness, off dry, good acidity.
Adjunct flavor, corn, yeasty, very little hops,

Looks like a Heineken, smells spongy and damp with a yeasty taste. Draft. Golden body, small white head. Blah.

Watery and mostly tasteless, this beer left zero lasting impression. I then decided to not even try the regular Genesee

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light creamy amber pour. The scent and flavor here is like a skunky fall lager. Not the best cream ale.
