12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours yellow, with a very light white head, poor retention, though some bubbles do stay around the rim.

S: Corn, carbonic acid.

T: Has a main corn flavour with some light malt. Some sulfur flavour with a noticable but mild grassy hop. Does have a bit of a salty, mineral vibe. Not too bad.

M: Fizzy, but fairly well-bodied for the style. Crisp.

D: Not a terrible macro, definitely better than Bud. $5.99 a sixer isn't terrible, but there are cheaper and tastier options if you're on a budget.

Pours beautifully. Straw colored golden with a fat white head that fell fast and left splotchy lacing. Brilliant clarity . You could read through it. Lots of bubbles streaming up to the top./ Nose is faint light grain and a touch of cooked corn. A bit of hop herbal and perfectly clean. No fruity esters whatsoever. Just lovely. Taste is crisp with some firm carbonation. Light sweet grain, cooked corn that is sweet and delicious. There is a touch of mineral or metallic on the palate but it's from the water. This finishes dry and with a nice little bitter to tease you into more and more. Light smooth mouthfeel and you could drink this beer all day. Nothing wrong with it at all but it is thin and develops a watery quality as it warms. It also gains a bit of sour taste from the combined grains as ti warms.

Genesee beer is beer you drink when you are in a special mood. This Brew comes to us from New York State. This is a your everyday american style beer. No bad but not good. This beer has a little bit of a bite to it. This beer is low priced. The smell is that of your american style beer. A nice amber color. I drink this beer when there is nothing else to drink or I wan't to change it up.
