Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Let's see what 99 whopping cents can get you here.
The beer has a ridiculously clear body of a very pale straw urine yellow color. Head off the pour is actually quite good and quite large with a shocking white cap and very uniform. Not much in rising carbonation coming from the bottom or even stuck to the glass.
Smell is very muted, almost non existent BUT there are no faults on this I can find with a typical Adjunct Lager. No DMS, No vegetables, and more importantly no solvent and chemicals. I still call Good based on this.
Taste, woah totally unexpected. Incredibly sweet tasting probably from corn base, gets almost into powdered orange juice but a real honey sweetness and thickness. Good bodied for this and the beer feels quite large but it's that sweetness overtaking. There is even a little bready finish at first but completely gets lost after repeated sips by the dominant sugars. A little bit of roof top dry mouth but not much to make a big deal over.
Overall I was kind of surprised by this one, but boy it is WAY too sweet, but I can't complain much you could do considerably worse.

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.
