Picked up a case of this along with a case of Two Hearted Ale yesterday. This is going to by my main beer for a four day kayak trip down the Juniata River. Can poured into a pint.

A: Pretty standard adjunct lager clear yellow color. The head built quickly and died just as fast. No apparent lacing.

S: The aroma is similar to a blend of various vegetables with a noticeable sweetness. It smells quite appetizing a thirst quencher.

T: Not a whole lot of anything. Pretty standard macro flavor but not near as sweet as a PBR. There is a tiny twinge of hop bitterness at then end. Overall, not much taste, but the taste that is present isn't a bad one.

M: Standard thin and watery for this brew.

O: This is an old-timers brew that is extremely dirt cheap. For the price I would rather have it over Bud, Miller, or Coors. It is everything I expected it to be. Bland, vapid, and overly generic. The can even looks generic, like something out of an old health book that is just a white can with black print that reads: BEER! I think we could all use a little more Genesee every now and again.

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.

24 oz. can for $1.09 poured into my coke glass.

A - Straw. Minimal head dissipates quickly. Slight lacing stops after a few drinks.

S - Corn.

T - Corn, grains, and hops. Goes down sweet with a tiny bit of staleness at the end.

M - Medium to light. Properly carbonated.

O - Good session beer. It's a bit like Budweiser, except this tastes like a real beer. This would be a great lawnmower beer if I had lawn.
