OK, so tall boy extra 24oz can, not expecting much at all, hopefully something drinkable.
Pours a huge over carbonated almost 3 finger head that fades at a med pace, lots of bubbles, and somehow still light spotty lacing, crystal clear watery yellow color.
Nose brings light malts, corn and adjunct additions, adjunct malt addition like syrupy mess, hint toasty straw malt, and hint grassy hop, but otherwise pretty much nothing going for it.
Taste brings more adjunct corn flavor, corn mash, creamed corn creamy taste, light bitter grassy hops, adjunct mess, little grassy malt if you push it, the hops aren't too bad actually, the malts are meh though. Light and drinkable for a macro like beer that isn't skunked and undrinkable. Finish is dry and light bitter grassy hops, fairly meh overall on the finish too, macro syrupy mess, light sulfury unappy lager.
Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb but lighter.
Overall meh, as expected for adjunct lager but not as bad as the off flavors are not overpowering.

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.
