Where is the aroma? For that matter where is the flavor as well. Lets face it, if you have to have a light beer you should just not even be drinking beer. Watery, bland useless.

Had a definate skunk aroma along with a metallic overtone. Simply light yellow flavored water

A truly bad beer. I'll put it this way, I had just finished a Miller High Life, and found this in the fridge, and thought that MHL was much better. Stinky, thin, twangy malt. Waste of a bottle.

Bland, metallic like aroma with a bit of skunk-like essence. Very pale golden appearance with not much of a head or lacing. Tinny flavor, not very refreshing. Not very smooth going down.

Very bland and watery. There's really no flavor. It's not foul like other light beers, but there's just no flavor at all. There's really nothing to say. It's just extremely boring.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [draft at Greater Rochester International Airport - Rochester, NY] Pours a very pale yellow with a small thin head and very few bubbles. Has a very weak hoppy aroma. The initial taste is one of hops, but that is about it. Very thin-bodied, mostly water. Easy to drink because of that fact, and also because it does not have much in the way of a taste. Not too good, but not a horrible light beer.

Typical light beer...watery, bland tasting. For the money, go for Genny Cream Ale.

Surprisingly similar to the regular Genesee lager. It's almost if they took regular Genny and just added more water. Even though it tries to remain close to Genny, it still is a below average light beer.

Could be worse, or maybe going to college only a few miles from High Falls Brewery, I have consumed so much Genny light that it is merely a fact of life and I have resigned to my fate to drink bad beer. At least it is light and resembles a good mass produced beer (which aren't good) in taste enough to be bearable.
