This is the first "genny" I drank since I was a thirsty Canuck Biker-punk swarming Buffalo bars on the week ends to drink up the "Yank Pignut oil" sold on tap at hundreds of small neighborhood bars in upstate NY.
Since that time, small lakes Canadian, imported and craft brewed beer has flowed over this tired palate. Ya know what? Genny tastes good to me! You have to come from the right frame of reference. I believe you Yanks are too hard on yourselves when it comes to grading the local commercial sudz. This Gennesee reminded me of a traditional local brewed American lager from a time when the local breweries CARED and had to make their smaller batches consistantly BETTER than the mega brewers to keep alive. I'd give this new offering from high falls an overall 3.5 for focusing on the traditional repeatable quality of the regional American brewer before the 70s corporate shit-storm made national brands taste different depending on where you bought them. Long live Genny!

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.
