Poured on-tap and served in a nonic, the beer is a pale goldenrod coloring with a ton of carbonation bubbling and a tall, frothy, light, white head that settles into a filmy coating. Clingy all over the glass. Aromas of toasted grains and not much else...a bit musty and stale. Flavors of roast, with a buttery backbone and corn overtones. Bleh. Roasty and stale aftertaste with a quick, uneventful finish. Not good.

Ya know, for the money it really is a pretty good beer. Being from the South we do not get to experience many of the North's local beers. Local meaning (those beers that never get past the Mason Dixon Line). At first, I had my reservations about this beer. The packaging is bland, the beer was in a 12 pack for 6 bucks. I inquired about the beer out of curiosity and the lady behind the counter replied in this typical New York accent-"If you don't like the beer honey, you can always give it to your neighbors..." Being a retired military man, I reflected on my past and never remembered ever giving away bad beer. I thought to myself was there such a thing as a bad beer? No beer could ever be so bad that I would pass it along in distain. Out of shear intrigue I had to try some. I found that it reminded me of the draft beer you would get at the NCO Club in the pitcher on a Saturday night. The taste was like a memory which shot me back to one of my first bar brawls in the 80's. Although, Long Island Ice Tea was involved, I do remember the taste of this particular brew.
- Thanks for the memory Genesse. No Marines where harmed in the making of this memory, just a couple dozen of the finest Sailors you would ever meet... Bless their immortal souls.
