2.99/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the iconic green can into a 16 oz. pint glass.

A-Dark amber to copper in color with a thick lively khaki head that rather quickly dies down to thin, fizzy head. No lacing, no problem.

S-Rich sweet malty aroma with some carmelized sugar and honey mixed in. Also, some husky, corn adjunct aromas, but nothing offensive or off putting.

T-Malt up front with a slightly roasty, hoppy, bitter and noticeably crisp finish. This beer has a surprisingly rich and earthy flavor profile. There is even the most subtle play of dried, dark fruits on the palate. Nothing really too complex, but there is enough here to keep you coming back for more. Dare I say sessionable? Yes, I dare.

M-Thin bodied with plenty of carbonation.

O-Very pleasant. Worth drinking. Good way to welcome in the Spring, and it is my Super Bowl beer of choice. Most people wouldn't expect this caliber of beer when the see the Genesee name on it. It is not the best beer or bock in the world by a long shot, but I challenge you to do any better for the money.

3.19/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

12oz can into a pint glass. Very cool can design btw. Pours a crystal clear darkish brown with a half finger off-white head. Poor head retention and lacing but I really wasn’t expecting a whole to out of this beer. Aroma has burnt caramel, toffee, and some molasses. Perhaps a touch of corn as well. More caramel on the taste along with molasses and a quick whiff of alcohol. Light corn with a little grassy hop character. Slightly sticky with very little bitterness and a bit of a thin mouthfeel. Overall, while this is far from a great beer or a good example of the style, it is very refreshing and quite tasty considering the price. A beer I like to pick up every spring.
