24oz can poured into a tulip. Canned July 24th 2013.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a dense clean white head. Average amount of visible carbonation. Leaves a decent lacing behind.

S: Light malting, has the american adjust lager sweetness to it but not very strong.

T: Hardly has any flavor. Hints of malts as well as water. If you can taste the water I'm not sure thats a good beer. Bit of sweetness to it.

M: Light body, with a lot of carbonation. Supposed to be an easy drinker and I think it comes through in that regard.

Overall tough to sit down and rate a style like this. With such a light body and alcohol content the flavors are subtle.

purchased a 24 oz can for .99 at Wegmans on 4/25/13.

poured from a can into a mug, served at fridge temp.

lemon yellow with a 1 finger white head that leaves almost no lacing.

aroma: standard adjunct hops and yeast.

mouthfeel: surprisingly good.

taste: not a lot of flavor, but the little bit is decent.

notes: really not bad, easy to drink. Low abv makes this a lawnmower's session beer.

I drank a couple of these in a place where I shouldnt've been, served by a waitress who called me 'honey' and 'sweetheart'. I thought that I was going to get a Genny Cream Ale, but I went with it. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- So light in yellow-straw color that I thought it had a hint of greenish hue. It did pour a decent head and even left some spotty lacing.

S- Clean the litter box, please!

T- Better than the smell. Some corn sweetness, a touch of maltiness (I think).

M- Quite light with a unpleasantly sour finish.

O- I've had worse, so I may even cross paths with this again. What the heck.

This is cheaper than cheap, but luckily it's just as bad/good as stuff like Bud Light/Coors Light/Busch Light, so you can save your money, and get some Genny instead.

It pours a clear, watery yellow. No head, a little bit of lacing.

Smells like corn and metal. Tastes like corn and metal, but mostly water.

It's watery, and highly carbonated.

Goes down really easily, but doesn't taste good in the process.

Yay local!
