0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
99 cents for a tallboy can. Guess that sets the mood for this review. Pours a crystal clear urine-yellow with typical explosive white head. No aroma whatsoever. None. Taste is pretty average for a light beer... not horrible, but not something I would want to pay more than 99 cents for. Corn dominates, and some cheap malts and maybe a hint of skunky hops at the end. Goes down like water, especially at under 4% abv. My curiosity is satisfied, and I will never buy this again. Also a note: this is not a get-drunk-cheap beer. I finished the whole thing in less than 20 minutes and barely feel anything. This is a lawnmower/fishing boat beer.

Some people say this is better than Genesee, but I think the only difference is more water in this to take away the harsh taste. Cant complain at the price though.

Very, very light yellow with immediately dissapearing white foam head. Aroma is almost not present, taste is watered down pilserner, only some malty tones present. No aftertaste, flushed most of it away. (Montreal 201210)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Genny Light has a thick, stark-white head and a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, with splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of musty, sour grains, grain husks, and faint grape juice. Taste is of sweet and sour grain, faint grape, and corn meal. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Genny Light finishes decently crisp and refreshing. This is a budget beer, and it presents itself as such. RJT

Willie Nelson may have written a song called "Genny" that talked about a sweet, light bodied thing that was popular with the 3rd shifters in upstate NY. Genny hangs out at State Fair parking lots and next to the 36 packs in gas station convenient stores and was good for a cheap date in the back of a truck. It’s east coast High Life. It’s a cheap, light beer that’s not-so-bright yellow and sweet. I liked it just about as much as I liked Yuengling. In a subpar style - pale lager - Genny LIght is ok.

Almost no aroma or flavor, which is somewhat expected. The taste isn’t horrible though and a little lighter than other light beers from large breweries. It is cheap, but for even this price and size there are better offerings out there.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I decided if i was going to lIve in western ny, i have to at least have the cheap beer from there. Enter Genny light. Light yellow, thin non existent head. Thin nose of corn. Corn corn corn on the front with bitterness. No hop flavor or aroma. Watery and thin body. Typical macro swill, but it claims to be nothing but that.
