Bottle from the Genesee Heritage Pack. Poured into a Genesee Cream Ale pint glass...

Pours a nice deep golden with a 1/2 finger head that completely disappears after a second. Sweet malts, earthy tones, grassy, low profile hops. The taste is a sweet corn water with a hint of grassy hops, and a big grain finish. Light on the feel, crisp, easy to drink, very grainy. Overall the nostalgia is fun, but this beer is average at best. If your wallets low or if you just wanna have one for old times sake, go for it, it wont bite ya.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: A a pale golden beer with a creamy, off white head that leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: A little bit of an earthy hops aroma with a slight citrusy ester that seems to come from the yeast. There is a moderate malt sweetness

T: A malty softness and a light a earthy hops flavor and medium-light hops bitterness. There is a light bit if ale yeast character but not much. The balance is even and the finish is polity abrupt.

M: A Creamy, medium-lighted beer with a medium level of carbonation.

O: An easy to drink blonde style that is moderately malty beer with a good creaminess. If you buddy only drinks lawn more lagers and needs a gateway ale this isn't a bad choice as it's sort of a lightly flavored ale.

A - Poured a pale yellow with a one inch white head. The head was quite fleeting and quickly dispersed into a thin line on the glass. Very good carbonation level. I did notice some faint lacing.

S - Very "light" aroma for an ale with some hop note as well as some grain. Overall a very neutral smell.

T - Primarily taste is grain with a hint of hop bitterness. No sensation of alcohol. Flavor actually improved as beer warmed.

M - A rather "thin" mouth feel. A bit on the watery side.

O - Considering the price paid, this represents a fairly decent value.

Purchased from Wegmans on Taft Road in Liverpool NY. Honestly not a bad beer for the price. I notice that it is very carbonated which is not a bad thing for the beer. Has mostly a sweet bready taste. It is not to heavy so you can drink a few without getting overwhelmed. I will purchase this in the future it is very cheap an brewed in my home state.
