Only found this in 30-pack cans, but had to try it once. Pours a nice amber color with a decent, creamy head. Faint, mildly corny/sweet aroma. Nice lightly malted, roasted/caramel flavor. Suprisingly good for a cheap macro American lager. Highly favorable in comparison to Bud/MGD/Busch/PBR/Coors/etc. This might just be my new stock beer, but only since I can’t get Yuengling in Akron without driving across the OH/PA line.

Beerdedone (3372) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Can. Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, corn, and grain. Flavor is smooth, sweet, slight caramel, corn, and grain. Nothing great, but not horrible.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2006
Amber colored with an off white head. Aroma is pretty close to your typical macro (some sweet corn notes), but with a touch of caramel. Flavor is corn and very light hops, with some additional sweet caramel notes. Very drinkable and dirt cheap to boot.

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 12 oz. can. Pours a medium red with a whitish head. Slight aroma of caramel. Flavor is corn, some mild caramel sweetness, and mild hops. Not bad and a very good value for the money.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 [can - 12 oz] Slightly dark golden pour with a thick and fizzy white head. Almost red. Bitter aroma of vegetables, hops and some malt. The taste is pretty much your standard beer. Begins with a slightly dry and malty taste and then goes to crisp and slightly dry finish. Not a terrible beer at all.

PatGlennon (1) - USA - MAY 26, 2005 does not count
A decent beer, scores higher on overall than the other ratings may inply due to the value factor. 12.00 for a 30 pack (including 1.50 deposit). A far better option than most mass market brews out there (Bud, Miller etc.)

jb (3155) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2005
This starts out good with a nice reddish appearance, familiar decent hoppy aroma and some malt in the palate. Then comes that weird genny off-taste that kills it for me.

can from my brother...clear reddish pour with minimal white head. Mild malt aroma, corn. Sweetish start, some caramel, some roasted malt in the middle...finishing with the traditional Genny flavors (must be the water in Rochester). This is pretty decent for such a cheap product. I can drink it.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Can. Sour, grassy aroma. Very mild and not particularly appealing. Transparent copper color with a small quickly dissipating white head. Start is nice and malty. Slightly caramelly and roasty. Finish is kind of off and has some DMS. Slightly thin and watery, but exceeds my expectations from this brewery. This is actually quite drinkable.

I brought a thirty pack ($13 USD) of Genesee Red Lager to this year’s Philadelphia Folk Festival. Drank it off and on while camping out over the course of a four day weekend ice cold out of the can. Detected a slight aroma, corn, chemically roasted malts and more of a bitter than sweet finish. Reminded me of a cheap version of Yuengling Lager. Last night while "de-festing" I had one more Genny Red out of a pint glass. Nice reddish color but a lame head with some large carbonated bubbles. Genesee Red lager is better than average cheap beer, and a good value. If you are in need of a beer for mass consumption and will be giving half of your thirty pack away to others this could be the beer for you.
