Smooth and creamy but still refreshing. Hood wheat smell. Very tasty and easy to drink. Can design is simple and cool.

I think that, though not obviously the pinnacle of anything, this beer is somewhat iconic. It is underrated, cheap, and fills a niche that some people believe only this brand can...it is a classic and I love my forest green simplicity...hey it Genny...

A good everyday kind of beer that is more complex and tastes better than a lot of people give it credit for. Nothing mind blowing here just good simple beer you can enjoy at a excellent price.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass in Savannah, GA (I know, odd).
Aroma- Maybe grass and some malt, not much here.
Appearance-A pale yellow (like Coors Light), little head.
Taste- Definitely a regional macro here. I assume this would be real good around a bonfire.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation, it does have a creamy feel to it.
Overall- I ordered this off of the beer list under "your Daddy's beers" it also had Dixie, Lonestar and Iron City listed. It was a nice throw back to my teen age years.

Do not let the Almighty pluck you off the planet before getting yourself a cream ale. It's a delightful pint. Nice taste and enjoyable end.

In Western NY state, they just about give this stuff away, which has gained it a bad reputation. However, at only $3.99 a sixer, it is one of the best bargains out there. I'll take a Genny screamer over any of the big name macros any day.

The beer is a full-bodied, somewhat heavy, bold tasting ale. It has a medium-dark golden colored body, a thick, rich head, and a smooth feel with a touch of bite. Taste has the typical bite and slight bitterness of an ale, with the smooth texture of a cream stout. Yes, it is cheap, mass produced beer, and even if you didn't see the price tag, there are hints of this fact in the somewhat unpleasant aftertaste you get if you drink more than a couple of these. That said, it is however great for a cheap beer, and even very good compared to mid range mass market beers.

Not a beer to guzzle, or to get a buzz on...too heavy...but great to enjoy one or two with a nice stogie, or by itself if you enjoy a that smooth yet bitter texture. Basically, it's the poor man's Boddingtons...a creamy, bitey ale at a bargain price.

Poured from a huge can, code 3034 which means it was canned October 30, 2014.

A stark white thick foam with great retention and lacing. Color is a clear, sickly yellow. Sweet corn and semblance of flavor is the result for the flavor dept. Very watery and uninteresting though. Who the hell could chug a whole monster can of this?
