12 oz can, poured into a shaker pint at approximately 40 degrees F.

A: Pours a crystalline-clear pale yellow with a two-finger white head that quickly vanishes. Looks like watered-down apple cider in the glass. Bubbles stream from the bottom relentlessly.

S: No real aroma to speak of, just some vague grain malt and grassy-fruity hop odors.

T: See the "Smell" section above. A mouthful of of slightly-hopped grains, with vague hints of grass and apple.

M: Actually slightly creamy, with lively carbonation.

O: Not a bad go for a regional macro adjunct, especially for the price point of about $0.50 per 12 oz can. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, this is a fantastic beer to bring to a party, music festival, or similar event. If you're looking for an amazing beer experience, then by all means, pass on by. For what it is, however, this is decent.

Genesee Cream Ale had a good flavour of wheat with a light taste of hops. Genesee Cream Ale lost its carbonation pretty fast. People who enjoy a flat beer with a great taste may enjoy Genesee Cream Ale. I am the person who posted the Genesee Cream Ale photo.
