This is absolutely one of the worst beers I have ever had. I paid $4.56 for a sixpack and it's not even worth it. Tastes lightly green apple flavored with a watery artificial sweetness and the overall vibe makes me think "rotting fruit".

For comparisons sake I'm a PBR fan and even Busch gets better after the first couple cabs. But Genny Light doesn't get better after having a couple. In fact it gets worse as you go. You just don't want to come back to this one and I recommend as somebody who doesn't mind a frosty mug of Coors Light or a Miller that you just avoid Genny altogether.

A - Poured very clear yellow with a massive frothy white head. Left no lacing.

S - Light corn, Seltzer, water, paper

T - Virtually the same as the nose. Some light corn in the beginning, With a very watery finish.

M - Watery body with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, Just another light adjunct. Oh well, This stuff is $1 for a 24oz can virtually anywhere you go so you get what you pay for.

grain and water, a bad blast of sour corn that thank god fades fast to a finish of blah, 30 cans for 12$, i think i will leave this one for the kids (beer pong, and funnels) and all the things that make collage fun, but if you respect your taste buds you will run as far away from this one as you can, and i dident think you could get any worse than budwiser. i think this goes down as the worst beer that i have ever had
