Let me preface this review by saying that as as life-long resident of Western NY, I have long had a negative impression of most Genesee products Aside from the obligatory high school flirtation with Cream Ale, that resulted in the "Genny Screamers" that so many of us suffered through as a rite of passage, I have avoided most of their line-up like the plague for the last twenty years, BA and this helped soften my view a touch, so here goes:
Poured from a 12 oz can into a DFH snifter, just to set the record straight, a 12 pack was had at my local grocer for $ 6.99, keep that in mind....
A-nice reddish hue with a finger of head that seems to hold up
S-good malt, a but of roast, maybe some biscuit
T-decent, way better than any BMC and did I mention 6.99 for a 12 pack..
M-a bit heavy on carbonation, a touch watery, but ok
D-high, low abv makes this a great session candidate...

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.
