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.

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.

This is THE beer that I grew up on being from upstate NY. My late father always had Genesee on hand and probably knew that his boy was perhaps sneaking a beer or two. I consider this to be my "baseline" adjunct lager.
A - A very pale straw color with a somewhat weak and fleeting head.
S - Very adjunct dominated with cooked grains.
T - Different than others of this type but cereal dominates with a surprisingly clean finish.
M - Since the carbonation lasts throughout the mouth feel is almost tangy.
O - This is a great hot day beer. Considering what it is it isn't too bad. I'll take a Cream Ale or 12 Horse over a Genesee Beer but I won't turn one down if it's all there is.
