Zach brought this back from Rochester, NY.
Poured into a standard pint glass.
Appearance: Body is crystal clear and very pale yellow. Shows very active carbonation. A soft, white, fizzy head formed on top right away and retained pretty well throughout the session. Nice lacing too.
Smell: Corn and other adjuncts dominate the nose. Partly sweet, partly skunky; nothing to look forward to.
Taste: Inoffensive and uncreative, but isn;t that what an adjunct lager is all about? I taste a touch of corn and some very mild grassy hops. Lager yeast is quite prevalent (relative to those other flavors). Flavor is weak, but tolerable.
Mouthfeel: Very light, very fizzy, clean and malty. The high carbonation leaves the mouth feeling a bit fuzzy afterward. I only drank half a glass and I already feel bloated. Bleh.
Drinkability: As far as adjunct lagers go, this is one of the better ones.
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.
