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.

24 oz. can for $1.09 poured into my coke glass.

A - Straw. Minimal head dissipates quickly. Slight lacing stops after a few drinks.

S - Corn.

T - Corn, grains, and hops. Goes down sweet with a tiny bit of staleness at the end.

M - Medium to light. Properly carbonated.

O - Good session beer. It's a bit like Budweiser, except this tastes like a real beer. This would be a great lawnmower beer if I had lawn.
