With 2491 etched on the bottom, I assume that it means this beer was made in Autumn of 2011... so this beer is pretty much ancient. I'll try to keep that in mind while typing this up. I had this straight from the can, so I'll skip the whole appearance bit.

Smell: Like I'd expect a cream ale to smell ... a vanilla sort of sweetness, with corn.

Taste/feel: Considering this beer is so old, it's actually not terrible. I get a taste of alcohol on the start with some sweetness and malt, and then it's done. This is about as inoffensive as a beer can get. I don't get many (any?) hops in the taste at all, but it's actually a pretty decent adjunct. As for the feel... meh. I'll have to guess it's the age that's made this one pretty odd. Decent carbonation in the middle, but falls flat on the finish, and leaves a not-too pleasant aftertaste that has Sweet & Low sweetness.

All things considered (the fact that it's an adjunct and that the beer is well over a year old, if I'm reading the dating correctly), Genesee Cream Ale is a very reasonably priced, decent tasting beer. The after taste irks me a little bit, but it's still something I'd much rather drink over a Budweiser, or even Coors... even if it's 500+ days old like this can is.

t - sweet caramel and wheat

m - light and highly carbonated

o - not the greatest, but definitely drinkable, and a good beer for the price, it's great to share.
