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.

Poured from a can into a pilsner glass at around 40 degrees Fahrenheit

Appearance (3.25): Clear light golden color as expected with a finger or two white head

Smell (3.25): Grainy malts, grassy hops, slight fruit notes

Taste (3.25): One again some grainy malts, creamy corn, mild hops. Very clean for an adjunct

Mouthfeel (4): Light body yet very smooth; One of if not the smoothest adjuncts i've had infact. Slight bitterness

Overall (3.5): When i rate an adjunt i tend to compare them as a class of their own as just about every one would get less than a 2 other wise, and thats just not fair as there are some respectable macros out there. And i would include Genesse Cream Ale in that echelon. Nothing stands out about it per se, but what is there is exceptional for the price ($13.99/30 pack). Very clean aromas and flavors between grainy malts, creamy corn, and a slight hop presence. Yes, i said it, hops! As if that weren't surprising enough, this beer is also exceptionally smooth considering the style. Overall one of the few beers i purchase in this price range, the others being Yuengling and PBR.

I always say "you have to take something for what it's worth". Odds are, most people don't immediately see this as a bring-to-a-party beer, but it's great for that. For the value, you can't beat it. Especially if you're someone who likes a decent finish on your cheap party beer.

It's malty, that's for sure. And it offers something to chew on. Easy to go through a few in a short amount of time. No, this isn't a radical wild yeast / farmhouse / craft beer, but it's a fine buddy to bring to a party.
