Yo dawg, reviewing the Genny in a 40. Seriously, Genesee is a beer I used to drink and enjoy when I couldn't afford the better stuff.

Pours a yellow color with a head that starts out amply and fades. Aroma is light, thin and corny. A bit sweet too. Typical of the style. Taste is not too bad though. Some alcoholic aftertaste with sweetness. Nothing really impressive. What it does have going for it is that it's inoffensive, easy to drink and cheap. I would just give it an average rating. Still much higher than my opinion on a few other macros.

Serving type: bottle

Went to the store in search of Red Stripe, Old Milwaukee or some other ...yeah ...cheap American beer. Saw Genesee sitting on the shelf for ...85 cents a 24oz can! Didn't take a calculator to figure out that's less than bottled water even with a 10 cent deposit. Not a bad brew but drink it cold....this is a great lawnmower hot summer day listen to the ballgame beer!
I give it a solid 4.00 because how can you beat an eight pack for under $4.00?
Light on the palate as well as the pocketbook....maybe a hint of metallic out of the can as it warms up but hey...that's your fault! No unpleasant aftertaste and a smooth drinking lager.

Serving type: can
