Live Review, 24 oz can from the corner gas. I'm not putting it in a glass because I more or less know what this would look like.

S- I'm sniffing it from the can, but not getting much of anything. It doesn't smell bad. In fact, it doesn't taste like anything.

T- It tastes about the same as it smells. Almost no flavor except a light (very light) "beer" flavor. Some odd sourness on the finish. Watery, and no corny adjunct flavor, which is what I expected. It's fizzy and cold and I'd love this in the summer on the lawnmower. Otherwise it's not really for me.

O- I'll try it again when on an extreme budget. It's between a dollar and 1.25 for a 24 oz, or 13.50 for a 30 rack, partially because it's the local poison for me. Definitely will take this over a regular Genny too, it has less of that flavor. (Usually not a good thing, but you see what I mean.)

Genny Light brewed by Genesee Brewing Co in New York State. This brew pours out a nice amber color with a thick white head. This brew is darker than your average American Light Lager beer. This brew also has a smell of grains. Nothing bad about the smell. The taste of this brew is light, there is not much there. A hint of sweet and water, and that is about it. For this brew being darker than other light beers out there, there is not much there. But this brew has an abv of 3.6, and other American lagers are about 4.2 abv. I'm not impressed by this beer; it could be so much more. There is nothing bad about this beer, but really nothing to write home about either. If you like light beer then you may like this brew.

16 FL. OZ. can
Served in a pilsner glass

A - This gem pours straw yellow and clear. It is topped with two to three inches of white head.

S - I get some grain and boiled greens in the smell.

T - The taste has some metallic and grass flavors. I'm happy that it has taste. Most light beers lack this component.

M - Thin

O - This light beer has more flavor than most macro lagers. Probably one of the more flavorful light beers out there.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a clear light copper color with slowly rising bubbles. A fizzy white head recedes to a white ring with no film or lacing. The aroma is of faint adjuncts, some corn, and an almost wine-like fruity sweetness. The beer tastes very sterile and metallic with a touch of the grape-esque note found in the aroma. The mouthfeel is very carbonated and rough.

Overall, cheap and very low in ABV. I only bought it to review. Gotta try 'em all at some point!

Bought a thirty can pack of this because it's from my hometown, was cheap, and at the time I wanted to diet. But asking myself to forego craft beer was too much, so 25 cans have been sitting since last spring.

Poured from the 12 oz. can into a Sanuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Clear gold with tons of bubbles ascending to the top from the bottom, an inch tall white head receded slowly to rocky surface foam and considerable lacing.

s: Apples or some such light fruit. Later, more malty.

t: That light fruit, more subdued than the aroma. Later even that fades.

m: Light, bordering on watery. Carbonation continues to add some zing.

o: A decent light beer, not so bad with lunch, extremely sessionable at 3.6% ABV, but definitely not a go-to for flavor.
